Yet again we have a Democrat pol violating the law. This time she – House Member Eleanor Holmes Norton – is calling, evidently most likely on a government line – soliciting a contribution from an interested party in her geography, in the area in which her committee and subcommittee work and pass legislation.
And she either is SO STUPID she doesn’t know that leaving a voicemail with an illegal request is, um …DUMB, or she feels so entitled that she just doesn’t care about the law. I really can’t tell which it is and will leave the decision up to you.
It is illegal to solicit funds from government offices and telephones. It is illegal to… well, just about everything she said was illegal…. you can read the link and listen to her voicemail.
Oh, yeah… it is becoming more and more difficult not to notice something… uh… unique? … standard? consistent? … about many of the ethics charges we’ve been hearing about over the past several months… Let’s see…. what do Rangle, Waters, Norton, Johnson, … have in-common? What do these four and Jefferson – the guy with $90 grand in his freezer…have in-common; what TWO things, as a matter of fact?
Hint ALL EIGHT Congressmembers under ethics investigation by a Democraat-controlled Congress….. share two things: They are Democrats and they are members of the Congressional Black Caucus.
Is there a special feeling of, oh… I don’t know… entitlement … maybe going on here?
Maybe the CBC can help us out in explaining this?
