Pombo's Co-author: "Republicans unworthy of retaining control"

Babaloo at Say No to Pombo has this jaw-dropper.

Joseph Farah, arch-conservative and co-author, with Congressman Richard Pombo (CA-11) of the book This Land is OUR LAND: How to End the War on Private Property has released a statement regarding the Foley/Hastert affair:

Following the revelations about Florida Rep. Mark Foley's sexually suggestive e-mails to a 16-year-old congressional page, I have concluded Republicans are unworthy of retaining control of the federal government.[…]

It's not just what one unfit congressman did. It is how his colleagues, mindful only of defending their own positions of power, reacted [...] they did no investigating because they didn't want to know the truth.


Stop the presses. There's millions of us who couldn't agree more. Richard Pombo, like his GOP colleagues, is unworthy of anyone's vote. And yes, as Farah says, for those in charge of the GOP, this was about power all along. It was definitely not about taking responsibility of teenagers left in their charge and trust.

I have a great suggestion for voters in CA-11. Take a look at Democrat Jerry McNerney.

McNerney is a vote you can feel good about for once.

  • It's been a morning of shaking my head in bewilderment at the computer monitor.

    That's pretty remarkable, Kid (so I'm glad you remarked on it). Can you promise to update if Pombo responds to his co-author's comments?
