From Karl Denninger in “The Market Ticker”.
From The Hill:
Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) blasted “tea party” protests yesterday, labeling the activities “despicable” and shameful.”
“The ‘tea parties’ being held today by groups of right-wing activists, and fueled by FOX News Channel, are an effort to mislead the public about the Obama economic plan that cuts taxes for 95 percent of Americans and creates 3.5 million jobs,” Schakowsky said in a statement.
I’ll tell you what’s despicable and shameful. Right here:
CHICAGO (AP) — The husband of an Illinois congresswoman pleaded guilty Wednesday to tax violations and bank fraud for writing rubber checks and failing to collect withholding tax from an employee.
Robert Creamer, a political consultant married to four-term U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky, could face four years in prison on the two felony counts when he is sentenced Dec. 21.
Creamer, 58, a prominent Chicago political consultant, was accused of swindling nine financial institutions of at least $2.3 million while he ran a public interest group in the 1990s.
This is how Washington DC defines “despicable”:
Exercising one’s First Amendment Rights.
This is how Washington DC defines “acceptable”:
Committing a FELONY (to which one pleads guilty rather than face what must have been overwhelming evidence in open court) by swindling people out of $2.3 million dollars as the spouse of a United States Representative.
So, let me repeat this again: If you are extremely concerned about the way Congress is pissing away the tax dollars of a generation yet unborn and worried about what this portends for the future, you are “shameful and despicable” (and somehow a member of Fox News and/or a Right Wing Activist.
If you steal AT LEAST $2.3 million and commit tax fraud, then you are a family member.
Perhaps she needs to pull her head out of her ass and take a look around for herself.
Look, dumbass, I’m PROUD to be a volunteer right wing activist out here attending tea parties with like-minded people. Your husband is a thief and a tax cheat so don’t even try to get on a moral high horse with me.
