DARRELL ISSA: Must have the precious (campaign contributions).
GOLLUM: They (Democrats) stole it from us!
House oversight committee chairman Darrell Issa has launched an investigation into why the WWII memorial and other open-air monuments have been shut down.Let me guess: Congressman Issa got a mouthful from Congressman Randy Neugebauer?
“These properties belong to the American people. They do not belong to a Political party. There is no reason to ever shut those folks out from that,” said Representative Mike Kelly in an emotional speech…
Issa’s investigation is at its preliminary stages, Frederick Hill, his spokesman, said. But his committee will be exploring whether decisions were made to close monuments and other attractions for political reasons, potentially as a means of worsening the pain of a shutdown to increase political pressure on House Republicans.
Let's go down the list of Issa's initiatives:
Contraception "Hearing" (where Sandra Fluke was shut out)
Fast & Furious "Investigation"
Postal Service "Reform"
And now the National Parks Service. Lovely.
This comes after Issa blew up at a reporter as covered by CBS News (moment comes at 0:54 point in video):
Then on CNN recently in a tense exchange:
And then per the NY Times, Issa gets snappy once again:
During the lockdown, the police permitted some members of Congress to walk through the underground tunnel that connects the Capitol to the Senate office buildings.Issa's not doing too good these days. Which means, we start doing voter registration drives in CA-49 ASAP.
At one point, Representative Darrell Issa, Republican of California, snapped at the police guarding the entrance to the tunnel, “Let me past, I am going through,” as he walked at a fast clip back toward the Capitol.
The current Democratic challenger to Darrell Issa is Dave Peiser and here is his contact information:
Here's Peiser's information.
Dave Peiser for Congress: http://peiserforcongress.com/The website still needs more updating and we still need to know where Peiser stands so if you desire to have another candidate and want to fire up the base in CA-49, start contacting the CA State Democratic Party and the San Diego County Democratic Party to see about getting additional candidates to run in the primary against Darrell Issa.
