House Democrats Attack Republicans — On Ethics

Weiner photoConstituents of six House Republicans can expect to receive an automated phone call from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) informing them of their representative’s allegedly unethical practices. But DCCC’s accusations follow in the wake of many Democratic mishaps including the scandals involving ex-Rep. Anthony Weiner and Rep. Maxine Waters.

Rep. Adler, DCCC Must Come Clean on Fake New Jersey Tea Party Candidate

Chris Van HollenIt is almost beyond belief that Rep. John Adler, a Democrat from southern New Jersey and his allies could successfully plant a fake Tea Party candidate on the ballot in order to draw votes from the Republican candidate Jon Runyan.

It is possible that Adler and operatives of the Democratic Congressional Campaign  Committee (DCCC) violated a number of statutes and House Rules, but the more pressing priority is for Adler to fully explain his knowledge of these events. Moreover, DCCC Chairman Rep. Chris Van Hollen, at right, must fully explain any role he played, and the role of his staff. Any DCCC personnel involved should be immediately fired.

The civil rights of Tea Party protesters, and voters who identify with the movement, are being violated. Democratic Congressman made allegations of a racial incident on Capitol Hill that could not be substantiated. A Tea Party demonstrator had his finger bit off …
