DCCC Releases New Ad on Pete Olson Being Investigated for Voter Fraud (TX-22)

Come Clean Pete!

DCCC Press:

The DCCC released a new television advertisement today on Republican candidate Pete Olson (TX-22) being investigated for voter fraud. A Virginia Prosecutor recently opened an investigation into Pete Olson's voter fraud, which was committed when Olson voted in two states in 2003.

"Texas voters deserve to know the truth about Pete Olson's apparent disregard for the law," said Kyra Jennings, Southern Regional Press Secretary for the DCCC. "After turning the page on the corruption of Tom DeLay, the last thing the people of Texas' 22nd District need is Pete Olson, another politician who is under criminal investigation."

A fetus with a flag?

I kid you not. Susan has the scoop on a really creeeeeeeepy yard sign in Houston.

Alcohol, pickup trucks, children and stealin' Obama sign parents

Now that's the small town republican way...
The Sheriff's Office reported Wolf's wife and four children were in the truck when he allegedly took the Obama signs.

Deputies said when they found Wolf's truck near Hiemstra's house, the stolen election signs were clearly visible in the back and the family was still inside. Deputies said when he was asked why he would take the election signs, Wolf said he "thought it would be funny."

Deputies say alcohol also is suspected to be a factor in the thefts.
Sounds a little like Fort Bend County , Texas...

I guess you can't blame them...just take a look at their role model.

Dispicable pro-life ad

I just received this ad from The Valley Morning Star in Harlingen, Texas. I hardly think Jesus would want to be in the same company as Sarah Palin. And what the fudge is up with the Catholic church?

My Pop, a life long Catholic is none too pleased!

Texas Farm Bureau today endorsed Rep. Nick Lampson

The Texas Farm Bureau today endorsed Rep. Nick Lampson (D-Stafford) in his re-election bid for the House of Representatives.

The endorsement came during a midday press conference in a cotton field near the Fort Bend community of Beasley. Jerry Reynolds, president of the Fort Bend County Farm Bureau, said the organization chose to support Lampson because of his record of effectiveness, seniority in Congress and commitment to Texas and agriculture.

“Nick Lampson has been an outstanding congressman for the 22nd District,” Reynolds said. “He understands the issues that are important to the farm and ranch families of southeast Texas. Those of us involved in agriculture know we have a friend in Washington in Nick Lampson.”
