This time, Barry is making so-called “robo-calls” paid for by the Nebraska Democrats, trying to exploit the House page scandal.
Marylander-Rubin is apparently targeting the conservative Republican audience of 1st Dist. Rep. Jeff Fortenberry. The message, which is also going out to at least FORTY-FIVE other House districts around the country, goes something like this:
Congressional Republican leaders including speaker Dennis Hastert covered up for a child sexual predator. Congressman Mark Foley was shielded by Republican leaders for at least 9 months after they knew Foley was trying to seduce a 16 year-old boy, a congressional page. ABC News reported that senior Republican
staffers were warning pages about Foley since 2001. Call Congressman ____________ at (phone number) and demand he stop the cover-up. The answer is arrests, resignations and a new congressional leadership.
What makes this so disgusting is that the Democratic House leadership and party hacks appear almost gleeful over this sad situation. Of course Fortenberry, along with Reps Tom Osborne and Lee Terry had nothing to do with this, and trying to attach their names to Foley is the basest of political tactics.
