Donald-Trump-Mocks-A-Reporter-With-A-Disability-And-Says-He-Doesnt-Remember

Delaware’s Republican Party wants to be known as the party of inclusion.. The have a marketing firm trying very hard to present an “image” that helps make this seem believable.

“What we’re telling people is that the principles that drive the Republican party are inclusive, and we’ve had candidates up and down our ticket who reflect that,” said Charlie Copeland, a former state Senate Minority leader who now runs the Delaware GOP.
Voters in November will find a ballot with a number of young candidates, women and people of color, a reflection of a concerted effort within the state party to broaden its appeal and ditch its stereotypical image…..

Yet none of these young, women, or people of color have disassociated themselves from the most bigoted, racist, misogynist, hateful, secular, satanist candidate we have ever seen….

For example, click on Jean Dowding’s website. She is running against Sean Lynn in Dover. Can we really expect her to enthusiastically support Trump’s call to round up all blacks openly execute them on the spot in the name of “keeping our streets safe”?

Of course not.  but she is solidly (in public if not private) toeing Charlie Copeland’s line and says she solidly supports and is behind the top of the ticket: Donald Trump, that guy pictured at the top of this article….

(Now to be fair, Donald Trump now is not the same one here in Delaware last April.. If campaigning hard as local candidates are wont to do, she may actually not be aware of what he now stands for)….

Here is the updated list of Donald’s current stance, just off of Delaware Liberal’s site. Thanks Guys, 🙂 )

Cut taxes for me.
Cut business taxes for my business.
Frack, baby, frack.
Keep America ignorant.
Implement legislation written by heath insurance companies.
Create a reality TV show that is one part “Hunger Games” and another part “Logan’s Run”.
Stop Mexicans.
Stop and Frisk The Blacks.
End Islam.
Get even with the Republican Party and the Clintons.

This is directly taken from yesterday’s Donald Trump’s 100 day speech!… This is what he is preaching today.. and this is what every single one of the following below is supporting, whether they know it or not…

Today, we often look back on history as the rise and fall of monolithic entities, we think of Nazi Germany, we think of Soviet Russia, we think of Ayatollah Khomeini’s Iran… 

Only they weren’t monolithic.  They were established by one sect over-ruling another sect of their people.. Once in control, as presented to the world at large, they then became monolithic entities… But inside, there were a lot of citizens who passionately felt they too were going the wrong direction (until they were killed, lol) ?  Many changed their initial support after they discovered the true nature of those who they put their vote behind…(and then they were ratted on, and killed, lol).

Today, we already know what Trump stands for. We already know how much ineptitude he represents. We already know how unprepared he is to lead the greatest nation in the world, We already know how far his values lead our nation from its principals based on those principles underlying all the world’s great faiths.. Today we know what a selfish, sniveling, little snot he really is..

Hitler to his credit, was able to hide it.  Stalin, to his credit was able to hide it. Trump to his discredit, spread it across our TV’s for all to see.

And, you still support him?  What in the hell is wrong with you?  Seriously… Go look in the mirror and say eye to ey to your image that you support in full the above 100 days contract and are proud to represent to your color, your gender, or your age group, that ideal as an American Republican…  And if it gags you when doing it in your own mirror image, you can imagine how it gags all of humanity to see you remain silent against the upcoming destruction of the Constitution as well as the underpinning of America’s great economy…

It takes courage to stand up to ones enemies… It takes an untold almost insurmountable level of courage to stand up to ones supporters and friends…

The path all of you have chosen to follow, is atheistic and non biblical. ….

James 4:17  So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.

James 2:26 For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, so also faith apart from works is dead.

Titus 2:7-9 Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity, and sound speech that cannot be condemned, so that an opponent, may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say about us.

Matthew 7:21-23 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’

Galatians 5:19-26  Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. …

Micah 6:8  He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

Matthew 7:21“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.

Colossians 3:23 Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men,

3 John 1:11  Beloved, do not imitate evil but imitate good. Whoever does good is from God; whoever does evil has not seen God.

Titus 3:14  And let our people learn to devote themselves to good works, so as to help cases of urgent need, and not be unfruitful.

Ecclesiastes 12:13-14  The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every deed into judgment, with every secret thing, whether good or evil.

James 2:24 You see that a person is justified by works and not by faith alone.

All which deal a blow directly to Charlie Copeland’s leadership of the party… It’s not what you say Charlie, but how your party acts, on which they will be judged….

All of the following have chosen to act one certain way… which is to support the candidate of their party no matter how crazy he has become… One must seriously question the psychological makeup of anyone who will support violence against women, against blacks, against Hispanics, against the deeply religious, (as long as they are Muslims)…

These people below do not deserve to represent America in the 21st Century……  Please check to see if you have any candidates listed and then be sure to vote for their opponent, or click them, and ask them why they say one thing, but do the opposite which is another….

State Of Delaware Gets Front Paged On Kos

If Christie laughed at every time he was lampooned, he’d lose weight.

Here is what the EPA says….

Kinder Morgan Transmix Co. has agreed to pay the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency $600,000 to resolve numerous violations of federal air and hazardous waste regulations, including mixing hazardous waste with gasoline.

Keep in mind that any accident, even a tiny small one of a gallon or two, affects the entire Delaware Bay and its unique biodiverse shoreline.

Now Imagine a tanker taking a hole.

Outlined here are the violations Kinder Morgan got hit with…..

A. The illegal mixing of a RCRA hazardous waste with gasoline, and from failing to sample and test gasoline to ensure compliance with CAA emissions standards.

B. Kinder Morgan failed to comply with a number of sampling and testing requirements of the CAA and fuels regulations to ensure the environmental and quality standards of fuel they produced.

C. KMT failed to notify EPA or the State of Pennsylvania prior to storing the cyclohexane mixture, a hazardous waste, at its Indianola Transmix Facility.

D. KMT failed to perform or obtain a general waste analysis upon receiving its first shipment of the cyclohexane mixture as required

E. KMT accepted the hazardous waste cyclohexane mixture at its Indianola Transmix Facility without first obtaining a RCRA Treatment, Storage, and Disposal Facility Permit, and therefore violated the following federal and state hazardous waste requirement…

F. KMT produced gasoline at the Indianola Transmix Facility that was not “substantially similar” to any fuel utilized in the certification of any motor vehicle or engine sold in the United States,

G. KMT failed to collect and analyze representative samples of conventional gasoline that it produced at the Hartford Transmix Facility, in violation of the anti-dumping regulations…

H. KMT failed to collect and analyze representative samples of conventional gasoline that it produced at its Hartford Transmix Facility for the purpose of determining the sulfur content of these batches of gasoline..

Result of Kinder Morgan’s actions?

Marathon Ashland Petroleum LLC (Marathon) reimbursed repair costs to owners of many vehicles that sustained damage. EPA understands that KMT reimbursed Marathon for the costs that it incurred in responding to these consumer complaints.

Obviously Kinder Morgan came up with the idea that they would rid themselves of an expensive waste product by burning it off in the cars that used its gas. It was cheap and untraceable. To accomplish this, they went dark on their self testing until the product had passed through their lines…. It would have worked, and they would have gotten away with their little scheme, except…. the fuel filters clogged with the waste product, and the traces began.

So, is this the epitome of ethics we want in Delaware? Of course ethics like this exists in Texas. That’s where they filmed Dallas. But do we need them here in Delaware?

No doubt, Alan Levin was not privy to this information. He is now.

The News Journal article came out Sunday……

Through all the hoopla it is pretty obvious where the bone of contention lies….

Residents are paying too much for their bills and would like to know the salaries of those on the board to determine if they are simply being taken like sheep to the slaughterhouse….

Those on the board do not want their peers to know how much, or how little they actually make…

So obviously, if a way could be found to divulge the salaries to certain trusted parties, but shield them from the prying eyes of one’s neighbor who has never been up to any good as long as he’s owned the property next door, this dilemma could be quickly solved….

One avenue would be to offer the release of the salaries to the Attorney General’s office. Interested parties could then sign a binding agreement, subjecting themselves to fines and imprisonment if they divulge the information to anyone else.

This solution would meet the needs of both parties.

But to argue whether the Water/Sewer board needs comply with FOIA, is rather silly. Ms. Sherlock (Attorney at large) should have seen the implications and fallacies of such an argument, from great distances. I challenge her to respond.

I will briefly argue why the Board must comply with FOIA….

Although the Water Board is a private entity, one that does contract work for the state and local governments, because it is a utility, it has greater obligations than say someone who shovels snow off the courthouse steps, on a contractual basis.

In the snow-shoveler’s regard, his salary matters little. The grand total of the contract is public, saying: “this certain amount was paid to this person, for this service”. If someone can offer it cheaper, then great.

But a public utility receives very special allowances from local government. If contracted out to a private firm, that bond through government, is still viable.

Unlike the snow shoveler, customers of a utility are bound to use that product. What are they going to do? Say forget you and shit in their yard? Point is one can always get another snow shoveler. One can never get another utility at a moment’s notice.

For that reason, as stated in Delaware Code, Title 9, Chapter 23, 2303, if citizens want to establish a sewer or water works, it has to go to a vote among the very residences themselves. In other words, whether the entity exists at all, is up to the public voting process. This as direct correlation as to whether a utility is subject to the public’s inspection.

2304 The County Council then holds a public hearing, where all parties can express enthusiasm or dread over the upcoming origination of a new utility.

2305. After that public hearing, the County Council meets to decide “WHETHER IT IS IN THE PUBLIC‘S INTEREST TO ESTABLISH A WATER/SEWER DISTRICT AND EXACTLY WHAT BOUNDARIES THAT DISTRICT WOULD HAVE.
After the establishment of boundaries, the County Council receives an estimate of the potential cost, and must publish that cost, broken down per foot, in a PUBLIC venue.

2306 After this has been decided, “the County Council then shall cause an election to be held within 6 months following the date of the hearing, at which the question shall be submitted to the voters residing within the boundaries of the sanitary sewer district as fixed by the County Council as to whether the district shall be established or not. Notice of the election shall be advertised in the same manner as provided in § 2304 of this title for advertising the public hearing. The cost of the election shall be borne by the County Council, which shall be reimbursed for such cost by the district, if established by the election.”

Again, who pays the cost? The cost is borne by County Council, which shall be reimbursed for such cost by the district if established by election. If not, ie the sewer goes down in defeat, the County does not get reimbursed and eats the whole cost. That alone would establish grounds that the entity would be required to comply with all County regulation, including those of FOIA.

2307 If the election is successful, “the County has 30 days to authorize the the Department of Public Works and the County Attorney to procure the necessary land and rights-of-way by purchase, agreement, or by condemnation in accordance with existing laws…” In other words, even though the sewer may be a private entity, eventually, unlike the snow shoveler, it’s groundwork is completely laid out by public employees. That alone would be grounds that he entity should be required to comply with FOIA just as does the Public Works and the County Attorney according to existing law.

2308 If the county controls the main sewer system, into which the entity sends it’s sewage, and which without, the entity would not be able to exact the removal of sewage for which it was contracted, that would exact another reason why that entity would need also to comply to FOIA. Common sense: if contaminants were traced up through the public main sewers to the private sewer’s outlet, and no further information were allowable, then considerable public harm could ensue. Since the entity is dependent on County functions, it should also be required to assist the public when information was necessary for the public good.

2311 The County Council may issue tax free bonds to cover the costs of construction. The bonds are “backed by the full faith and credit of the county.” That alone, would be grounds for assuring that a private entity benefiting from public financing, as is this entity, would be required also to comply with FOIA requests.

2312 County Council shall advertise the bonds for sale in at least 2 issues in each of 2 newspapers, 1 of which shall be a newspaper of general circulation published in the City of Wilmington, and the other a newspaper of general circulation published in the City of New York, inviting bids for the bonds. The bonds are public. On these grounds alone, the private entity must be required to comply with FOIA.

2316 The County Council must do an annual Sanitary Sewer District Assessment, after holding a public hearing. The salaries could easily be required by this assessment under current law, and they must, as an expense, be given over to the County overseeing government. This alone, precludes the right of FOIA to pertain to a utility.

2318 Delaware law specifically states that the County government is responsible for all rules and regulations pertaining to the sewer entity. At will, it could determine that it is in the public‘s interest to know the salaries, and force compliance with existing law. Since the disclosure is enforceable by law, it should equally be required to be dispensed under a FOIA request.

2319 The County Council may accept grants or loans of money, labor, materials, equipment or technical assistance from agencies of the federal or state government or from interstate agencies established by law…. Public money supports utilities. They, even though private, are beholden to those laws affixed to the dispersion of public money. This alone would make the FOIA request fit within existing law.

2321 And if you needed just one, seal proof reason why a private utility must be treated as a public entity, despite who the actual owner may be…. it is this…

The County Council may, where it deems it necessary to the preservation of public health, order the owner of any lot or parcel of land within a sanitary district which abuts upon a street or other public way containing a sanitary sewer, which is part of or which is served or may be served by the county sewerage system and upon which lot or parcel of land a building shall have been constructed for residential, commercial or industrial use, to connect such building with such sanitary sewer.

Barbara Blomquist doesn’t have an alternative choice…….

Should she refuse?

If any owner shall fail to comply within 60 days with such order to connect with a sanitary sewer, the County Council shall forthwith institute action in a Justice of the Peace Court in New Castle County or in the Court of Chancery of the State to compel compliance with such order.

This is where their attorney falls short. It would just take one of these planks to enforce through legal action the compliance of FOIA in regards to a private (public) utility…. Although I applaud the libertarian intent to keep salaries private, for a private corporation, completely separate from government, that would be fine…

But for a arm of government, disguised as a private entity, that cannot be the case. It is still, as deemed by the citizens and voters of that district, seen as a public entity, because as the above pretty well shows, … it is…

It would only take one reason to force a FOIA judgment. I have given you eleven….

Form a Grand Jury, give them subpoena power, give them wiretap clearance, and get to the bottom… quickly..

Camden-Wyoming Sewer & Water Authority eventually will have to comply… it IS in the law.

Wind Potential Offshore USA

As one can see there is a lot of competition for offshore wind… At one point in time, Delaware was poised to become the center of offshore wind manufacturing. Unless we move quickly, that place in history will be lost….

And just like our once ground-breaking New Castle- Frenchtown Railroad, although considerable investment was put in place to get it running, the rest of the world quickly passed us by…. because Delawaeans did what Delawearns do… sit on their hands…

We need to court GE with all the good reasons why they should build their new 5.0 offshore turbines here in Delaware. We need to spawn the development of an offshore tower construction company set up in Lewes. We need the MAPP lines connecting DC to our coast to continue forward quickly without interruption. Furthermore, we need to get NRG moving on building Bluewater Wind as fast as possible. Finally we need Delaware’s political contingent, including the Vice President, to create the tension always necessary to make bureaucratic things “happen”..

Time is wasting; we are sleeping.. The alarms gone off; it’s time to WAKE UP!.

Miss Delaware USA
Delaware's Hope To End The Curse
Delaware's Miss USA Contestant
Katie Hanson; Miss Delaware USA (photo’s courtesy of Miss USA Pagent

I really don’t know why it gets to me,… but it does… My state, the first state to enter the Union, the second smallest but still, the one state with the fewest counties, my state, the one our nation’s Vice President calls home…… My state, the one poised to be the first state in the union to have an offshore wind farm…. has, never… not recently, not even in ancient history, … ever won a title in a national beauty pageant….

Just as we are the only state without a National Park; we are also the only state that has never won a national title… Wikipedia almost gloatingly points out, “The least successful states are Delaware, the only state that has never placed;”

How come? Did any of you know this?

It’s obviously not because of our women! We have some amazing women here… Why is Delaware the ONLY STATE TO HAVE NEVER PLACED IN A NATIONAL COMPETITION?

To be honest, it’s because we don’t care. until of course, we happen to catch a glimpse on TV of our stunning candidate, and say wow, they really do look better than the competition…. By then, it’s too late.

No matter how you feel about beauty competitions… they do represent your state.
and Delawareans should begin getting mad that we are always left out…

When the Miss USA of Texas gets crowned, she is given a line of prizes a mile long.

Usually the family of the Delawarean contestant must pay out of pocket for the privilege to fly out and compete…. One would think, someone here in Delaware, would want provide some help to sponsor her? In return for advertising, if nothing else?

Is there anything we can do?

Yes, there is… For the first time in history, citizens of Delaware can go online here and vote 10 times a day for the candidate of their choice… Of course with our few citizens, compared to the numbers of New York and California, only a ambush will give us any chance… But ambushes are the American way.. Look at the Battle of Trenton, and Princeton!… We have a shot…to change history, at least get Delaware into the semi finalists, if everyone reading this votes, and votes often….

Why?

Primarily because we are a small state, one with few sport’s hall of famers… Often the butt of national jokes, we usually simply have no choice but to dismiss them… Now, before us is an opportunity to brag a little if we can pull this off.. Do we have a great candidate? Yes!.. Look at the competition on the site above..

We have a contender….

Delaware has never placed… Let’s do something about it?

What if we all petitioned David Letterman, to negotiate with Donald Trump, ( the owner of the Miss USA pagent) live on air, to give Miss Delaware a fair shot at righting this dubious distinction? Of course, Delaware will have to take some pings in the process ( that’s what comedy is all about) but to see one of our own as a finalist, would still send chills up our spines, irregardless of what we normally profess to think of beauty pageants.

It’s Delaware we’re talking about…

A brief note should turn the tide; something like this:

Dear Dave: Often you make Delaware the butt of your jokes. That is probably because we deserve it. But did you know, Delaware is the only state that has never placed in a national beauty pageant? Now, we know you are good friends with Donald Trump and he runs the Miss USA pageant. Could you do our humble state a favor and introduce Miss Delaware USA to Donald Trump on your show? We are not expecting miracles… but she IS beautiful…. and we could use some extra publicity so the world knows it… After all we are the only state that has never, ever placed… even Wikipedia makes fun of us…
If you can help us, thanks…

Here is the site for the David Letterman show... please include any jokes their writers might enjoy…. The email address is: lswdl@aol.com

5 or 10 won’t do it; I figure the minimum to be noticed is around 30,000… It will take some enthusiasm, some selling, and some enthusiastic supporters to make a dent in a contest that is obviously stacked against us, like a Republican Congress is stacked against John Carney!…

If you can spread the word, please do… and vote… and yes, vote often…. It’s our state pride that’s on the line here…..

1. Proximity to one of the top research Universities in the country..

2. Well trained work force, ex Chrysler, GM, DuPont, Siemens,

3. Good relations between unions and management at all Delaware companies.

4. Proximity to Dupont Headquarters.

5. Delaware’s Corporate Legal System.

6. Delaware’s own underutilized and “cheap” access port for import and export ocean traffic .

7. Close proximity to the moneyed and power towns of Washington, New York, Baltimore, and Philadelphia, which is good for investor relations.

8. Nearby beach as incentive to draw top engineers from around the nation.

9. Soon to be built, cheap offshore wind power, which will help to moderate utility costs against the ever rising price of coal and natural gas.

10. By getting foot in Delaware’s door, GE could have an inside track at building and installing their top rated turbines off Delaware’s shores…

GE is looking for somewhere to build a new solar plant... Not one requiring tons of sun, but a place to manufacture the thin film necessary for the exchange of electrons necessary to make electricity. Driving down the cost of this film, will drive down the cost of solar electricity.. The lower the cost, the more it will be used, meaning less coal will be burned….

Lower Delaware is the best place in the nation for it.

.. and thanks Nancy for bringing this to our attention…. 🙂

Lol, I told you.

And now we have it: a very clear choice. Maybe I’m the only one who is tired of parceling beans, putting some in this pile, others in that, and then counting up the totals to see which has more… A fight between Mike Castle and Chris Coons would be just that…

Instead, I wanted a clear fight, one that doesn’t even have to go nasty-ad personal to make the news… IN FACT, THE PERSONAL IS SOOO BORING, compared to the energy of what this battle of ideas will generate.

We have: Abortion versus Choice
Low Taxes versus Large Debt
Religion versus Science
Family values versus Economic Growth
Slashing Services versus Helping Those Less Fortunate
Carbon Fuels versus Nonpolluting Ones
Mommy versus Dad.

Lucky us. We have a sexy Mom (oo-la-la) and sexy Dad (hubba hubba) fighting it out… Anyway…..

Here are my predictions. This election will be way, way too close to call. It will be so close that the green and blue Castle-lites will quickly forgive and eagerly join in with the O’Donnell Blues…

This election will be the most exciting one in most living Delawarean’s memories. It will involve multiple local visits by the next presidential elections biggest names.

This election will redefine political boundaries for the next twelve years… Not officially, but this one set’s up the next election coming up in two years.

Most important, it opens up the dialogue of ideas
. The official Republican Party is dead. That’s the party of platitudes, or platypussys, (which is it? I forgot. )

Real people put in a candidate, one not supported by the party, one even disparaged by the party, one horribly ridiculed vociferously by the party… and guess what? …..

The people said ” yeah, that may be so…. but she is still much better than anything you got!!!! ..”

That’s a pretty damning indictment.

Christine now has the valid claim to be the one being of the people, for the people and (to win an election) by the people. To go against that, no matter who the opponent, is a very scary force to reckon with. Although oblivious to it now, Coons is is in trouble, and had better get his good ideas out there right now while Christine is reeling from her victory over the storming of the Bastille….

Likewise, everyone official who dissed her, whether blogger, think tank, or otherwise, obviously has interests that counteract those held dear-to-heart by real people. They have been proven to speak with forked tongues.

The People have spoken, just like they did with Obama. Each might cringe to be associated with the other, but both were fresh candidates in their respective races. If one looks at the big picture stretching over two parties, one hears the People saying “the old is not working. Let’s do something different…. ”

I’ve been calling for the death of the Republican Party, and so far, after each election after their peak in 2004, I have been correct; that party’s power has shrunk exponentially. However, Christine, has rejuvenated Conservatism in this state better than anything I could have done or said. For they( conservatives) are tired of being put down, stomped on, dismissed, pooh-poohed, cussed at, sexually intimidated, beaten up, suckered punched, laughed at, lip flipped, weasel wedged, wet Willied, bitch slapped, nipple tucked, and then be dismissed as inconsequential by a handful of men in Greenville with way too much money?

And now, conservatism has found a natural outlet to unleash all that energy pent up since the official Republican Party decided to cater to millionaires instead of Conservatives. Like a tiny wedge in a sand dam, all that pent up energy, will change the landscape these next few weeks ..

But will Conservatism work? Ahh, that is another question and will be one debated in another post.. Right now, I have to get back and celebrate with the lovely Ms. O’Donnell, her coming out party… 🙂

Every Republican lives in fear… They go about their lives, hoping no one finds the truth… They fear one day, all will be revealed.. They fear that Delawareans will one day learn the truth… So they use their wealth to spin their lies, and huddle like scurvy little spiders… sucking the juices out past year’s kills…

Delaware woke up this morning to find Ginger Gibson got there first… Like Frodo in the cave of Shelob, a brilliant light seared their retina’s as the first rising Republican casually glanced over the News Journal page this morning… There for all to see…. Critics say GOP abused its perks: Shocking’ expenses slashed in Del. House!

First one call to Westover, then two calls, then four.. Soon, the phones began ringing all over Republican land… ” Wake up! Get digging! This is bad! We’re Doomed! Damage Control! Who squealed!” although for some reason the calls never made it as far north as Yorklyn… Heard all over Republican land, were these word muttered under every Republican’s breath… “That damned Spence… Why did he have to put his name on all those checks…”

Spiders everywhere retreated to their den… Holed up… Hibernating till 2016……

House Republicans who could knowledgeably dispute the facts would not be interviewed for this article. Spence did not return phone calls seeking comment.

Republican Party Chairman Tom Ross said he couldn’t speak to specific allegations but characterized them as partisan attacks likely fueled by election-year politics.

Absolutely… Which is why it is always important when listening to a Republican, to click on links… Like this one to the side of Ginger’s story…..

It is addressed to Vincent Lofink,

Dear Mr. Lofink:

As recommended in a report from the State Auditor’s Office, I am writing to ask that you reimburse the House of Representatives for tuition reimbursements you received while serving as a state representative… The total amount you were reimbursed is $12,124.50.

Since this is a partisan attack fueled by election year politics one would assume the State Auditor would be of the opposite party…. What, the state auditor is a Republican?

Oh, my…. He’s a Republican.

… and since he took the Republican House leadership to task, he is apparently a damned good Republican too… By rough calculation, I’d be guessing he, Kilroy, and Rsmitty are the only three good one’s left…. JoAnne might still be one of them, I don’t really know anymore… And Hastings, I don’t want to forget.
