Leavenworth St. has learned that Speaker of the Nebraska Unicameral, state Senator Galen Hadley, will give state Senator Ernie Chambers a “Letter of Reprimand”, based on his recent “Ernie-gram”.
The letter is not likely to have any teeth to it, or affect Chambers in any way. It is likely a simple reprimand along the lines of “boundaries of decorum were crossed.” But it is at least one of the first times in recent history that Chambers has received any sort of action pursuant to his caustic statements and writings.
Leavenworth St. will keep you updated when more information is received.
FWIW, Chambers responded to a demand from Senator Bill Kintner that he apologize to his wife, Lauren, for what Chambers said about her in his political statement printed on state stationery.
Chambers then accused Kintner of “hiding behind his wife’s skirt.”
Of course, the coward Chambers hides behind his Senate desk for everything he says — claiming that he is discussing matters of importance to the state.
And in that way, Chambers looks to insult a woman undergoing chemotherapy, without apologizing.
A wikipediatician would call him a sociopath.
NRCC & Brad
A new ad by the NRCC questioning Democrat Congressman Brad Ashford. See it here:
Here is the text:
You remember Brad Ashford? He protected cities that ignore immigration laws.
Well, Ashford also voted to cut funding for our military.
Against funding for the men and women fighting Al Qaeda and the Taliban.
He even voted to stop airstrikes against ISIS.
This election is about America’s security, and you deserve to know where Brad Ashford stands.
I’m fairly sure you can pick up one a them Brad Ashford Fat Heads at Spencer’s Fine Gifts at Westroads…
And the Cook Political Report has changed their line on the Nebraska 2nd race from “Lean Democrat” back to “Democrat Toss Up”.
This, after Ashford spending over $300,000 on new TV ads blanketing the airwaves.
As noted in past polls, those that know about both candidates, choose retired Brigadier General Don Bacon over Ashford.
And it’s not even the first full week of the political season!
Blue with envy
