Hodes issued a press release on the death of Jack Murtha. Both received
campaign cash from Murtha’s Majority PAC. Hodes collected 7K in total from
the 2006 and 2008 cycles, with CSP scored a cool 9K in the last election.
But this did not even warrant an “our heartfelt wishes go out to the…blah
blah blah? Guess not.
No point in reminding people that while still producing CO2 John Murtha
represented just about everything wrong in Government or that he shared some
of that taint with House members from New Hampshire. Of course we’ll
remember. Nothing so sweet as pointing out that the wave of ethicists who
descended on Capitol Hill to return the government to the people back in
2006 not only did nothing to remove boils like Murtha from the ass of
government, they oiled them up, avoided every opportunity to lance them, and
then took campaign contributions as a reward for defending Murtha and
business as usual in DC.
