Is this endorsement supposed to help?
Partyin' John Sweeney
AFL-CIO Political News and Ads: October 23, 2006
Waaaah, waaaah, waaaah.
GIULIANI: "I'm Rudy Giuliani, and I want to tell you something about my friend, John Sweeney. John is exactly the kind of leader we need in these challenging times. A stand-up, straight-talking, independent champion for New York. Who's never been afraid to go against the grain to get help for New Yorkers who need it, support for those who deserve it, security for a place that's earned it. John Sweeney is still New York's go-to guy in Washington. We could really use him now" (Hotline sources, 10/22).
SWEENEY [seated next to wife Gayle Sweeney]: "My opponent's campaign is in the gutter. Gillibrand and her liberal allies have attacked me, intimidated my wife, smeared my children with anonymous phone calls, negative fliers and lies. I've never had a problem standing up for what I believe regardless of party, and I'm willing to defend it. But when you attack my family to promote yourself, when you lie and deceive to advance yourself, it's wrong, and you know it. I'm John Sweeney and I approve this message, on behalf of my family" (Hotline sources, 10/22).
The kind of Congressman who whines like a little bitch, gets the endorsement of drunk college kids and an adulterous former mayor. You know, the man who abandoned his wife and children for his second mistress?
Speaks to character for me.
