Tony Strickland Ultra Conservative CA 26: House Majority PAC Goes Up with Negative Tony Strickland Television Ad

House Majority PAC’s Ad – “Stripes”

Former Democratic Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s House Majority PAC is up with a new television spot attacking California State Senator and CA-26 Republican Congressional candidate Tony Strickland for being a what – an “Ultra-Conservative.”

The problem with the ad is that Tony Strickland is a conservative and so is the Ventura County based 26th Congressional district.

Here is the breakdown of the CA-26’s demographics.

Even the Decline to State voters are conservative in this District.

This ad carries the same old LIBRUL themes: my opponent is an Right-Wing extremist, wants to take abortion away from women, hates stem-cell research and cancer patients and generally is a corrupt corporation supporting miscreant who wants to send YOUR job overseas.

Don’t think it will work.

Here is the ad (embedded below):

Pelosi and Gingrich President 2012: Pelosi Folds   No New Dirt on Gingrich

Former Speakers of the House Nancy Pelosi and Newt Gingrich

Pretty pathetic as California Democrat Rep. Nancy Pelosi backtracks.

Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s office on Wednesday said the minority leader doesn’t have any dirt on Newt Gingrich.

Pelosi has suggested in two interviews that she knows something that could prevent Gingrich from becoming president, but her office said the California Democrat doesn’t have any secrets about Gingrich, who has shot to the top of national Republican polls after winning the South Carolina primary.

“The ‘something’ Leader Pelosi knows is that Newt Gingrich will not be President of the United States. She made that clear last night,” Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill said in a statement.

“Leader Pelosi previously made a reference to the extensive amount of information that is in the public record, including the comprehensive committee report with which the public may not be fully aware,” Hammill said.

Pelosi made headlines on Tuesday when she told CNN Gingrich would not be president, and that “there’s something I know.”

In an interview in December, Pelosi also drew attention by suggesting there was information that could come out of her office that could damage Gingrich. Pelosi suggested it was related to the House ethics investigation of Gingrich; Pelosi served on the panel looking into Gingrich.

“One of these days we’ll have a conversation about Newt Gingrich,” Pelosi said at the time. “When the time is right. … I know a lot about him. I served on the investigative committee that investigated him, four of us locked in a room in an undisclosed location for a year. A thousand pages of his stuff.”

But on Wednesday, Hammill repeated that all of the information from the investigation is in the public realm.

You know darn well that if there was any additional dirt, Mitt Romney would be using it now in Florida.

Pelosi and the Democrats are just doing a little misdirection.

share save 120 16 Updated: Oregon Rep. David Wu Will Not Run for Re Election But Will Not Resign   Pelosi Calls for Ethics Investigation
+++++ Update+++++

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) called Sunday night for an ethics investigation into allegations that embattled Rep. David Wu (D-Ore.) forced an “unwanted sexual encounter” with a young woman.

Pelosi’s statement came shortly after Politico first reported that Wu would not seek an eighth term next year, which a Democratic source confirmed, adding that pressure is building for his resignation.

“With deep disappointment and sadness about this situation, I hope that the Ethics Committee will take up this matter,” Pelosi said. “I will send a letter to the Ethics Committee [Monday] asking them to formally initiate a review of this matter.” Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Steve Israel (N.Y.) supported the Minority Leader’s request in a separate statement.

And, DCCC Chairman Rep Steven Israel is calling for Wu to resign.

But, again, what leverage does the leadership have?

davidwutiger1 Updated: Oregon Rep. David Wu Will Not Run for Re Election But Will Not Resign   Pelosi Calls for Ethics Investigation

Congressman David Wu of Oregon did some interesting things right before his re-election in last years midterm elections. He allegedly wandered around Oregon like an insane person, for one. Also, it appears he sent his staff e-mails like an insane person, along with photos of him dressing up like some kind of tiger furry

This has to be driving the Dems wild in D.C.

Embattled Rep. David Wu will not seek reelection in 2012, but he wont resign from office now despite allegations that the Oregon Democrat had an unwanted sexual encounter with the teenage daughter of a close friend last Thanksgiving.He isnt going to be running for reelection, a Wu adviser, speaking on the condition of anonymity, told POLITICO late Sunday night. But he hasnt done anything that rises to the level of requiring him to resign.

Wus decision to stay in office comes after a frenzied weekend of lobbying and pressure tactics designed to convince the Oregon Democrat to leave office, all of which seemed to have failed for now. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is likely to step up the pressure on Wu following this latest development.

Pelosi and other top Democrats are reviewing their options on Wu, which include outright calls for him to resign or to seek an Ethics Committee investigation into the explosive allegations against him.

First it was New York Rep. Anthony Weiner and the continuing story of the strange behavior of Rep. David Wu.Not a good summer for Congressional Democrats and Nancy Pelosi.

By the way, Wu should be assigned to a closet until he resigns.

share save 120 16 Weinergate: Rep Nancy Pelosi Calls for Ethics Inquiry Over Weiner Tweet Scandal
pelosivisitsnewyorkeve9 Weinergate: Rep Nancy Pelosi Calls for Ethics Inquiry Over Weiner Tweet Scandal

Former Democratic Speaker and now House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi with rep. Anthony Weiner and former Democratic N.Y. Governor Eliot Spitzer who resigned after a scandal involving prostitutes

Who will be the first Dem to throw Weiner under the bus?
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Rep. Steve Israel, the chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, are calling for an investigation into Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) over the series of sexually explicit conservations and lewd photos he exchanged with a half-dozen women during the last several years.

“I am deeply disappointed and saddened about this situation; for Anthony’s wife, Huma, his family, his staff and his constituents,” Pelosi said in a statement released on Monday night.

“I am calling for an Ethics Committee investigation to determine whether any official resources were used or any other violation of House rules occurred.”

Israel added: “Congressman Anthony Weiner engaged in a deep personal failure and inappropriate behavior that embarrassed himself, his family, and the House. Ultimately, Anthony and his constituents will make a judgment about his future .

“To remove all remaining doubt about this situation, I agree with Leader Pelosi’s request that the House Ethics Committee use its authority to begin an investigation.”

It won’t be long before Weiner is shown the door by his fellow Dems. If not, the liability he will have for the Democrats going into an election year will sink many ships. Can you imagine the Congressional television ads?
