Picking up on Erick’s efforts to get a clear answer from John Linder on whether or not he voted in the House Steering Committee to appoint Ken Calvert to the House Appropriations Committee, I thought this article was very relevant.
Props to Erick and Red State too for a mention, “Calvert says the FBI has not contacted him and he has no reason to believe he is a target. But that hasn’t stopped the widely read conservative blog RedState.com from repeatedly denouncing Calvert’s appointment to the Appropriations Committee.”
Anyway, I think I may have been the only one to go up to Linder at the GOP Convention and ask him about this and I didn’t get a very friendly response. He basically told me I didn’t have the facts. Anyway, I guess the voters will decide what the facts are on this ongoing matter.
Can’t we just all agree, Republicans and Democrats, that we should have a ZERO tolerance on corruption and those who would support the status quo of corruption? Doesn’t our democracy deserve at least that? How can we continue to ask our military to fight for freedom and democracy in Iraq and tolerate such corruption here in our own government?
