Time to give

Mr. King, this is for you

Breaking Peter King Scandal -- Lies About Lobbyist Son!
by pontificator [Subscribe]
Fri Oct 27, 2006 at 10:16:54 AM PDT

We're all the way down to the wire, now, and Dave Mejias is poised to take out Peter King. He's two points down in the only non-partisan poll conducted in this race, and he's just been added to the DCCC's Red to Blue list, which means that internal polling shows this race can be won.

And Mejias is a hell of a candidate -- a fighter who's willing to take the offensive. Today, he is all over King's dishonesty regarding his access to his Lobbyist son:

Democratic congressional candidate David Mejias yesterday accused Rep. Peter King (R-Seaford) of lying about his son's role as a lobbyist for companies seeking to influence the House committee King chairs.

"Peter King has been caught in two lies," charged Mejias, a Nassau County legislator.
"He said his son is not a lobbyist, which he clearly is," Mejias said, citing a New York State lobbyist registration form.

And, Mejias charged, King said his son doesn't work with clients with business before him or his committee, but a video suggests he has.

"This is the very essence of the culture of corruption in Washington," Mejias said.

This race is winnable, and we have a candidate who is willing to work over the bloated incumbent with brass knuckes and a lead pipe. But nevertheless, he still massively outfunded, as challengers often are.

Therefore, I am going to ask one last time, on the last day the money will do any good, for you to give to Mejias's Actblue account HERE.

The asshole is really going down. All the way down. Can't you feel it? I know I can. Throw Peter King an anvil and give. That way, in 2007, we'll have no more of this!

Defeating him would be a good thing.

Pete King is an asshole, he needs to be unemployed. He has failed the district he serves and the state of New York. Unemployement would suit him well in the new Democratic New York.

I would also recommend FDL's Blue America Act Blue list if you want to fund more candidates.

Other races I have contributed to:

Kirsten Gillibrand (NY-20) $25.00
Victoria Wulsin (OH-02) $25.00
Angie Paccione (CO-04) $25.00
Blue America PAC
Patrick Murphy (PA-08) $25.00
Joseph Sestak Jr (PA-07) $25.00
