DCCC Invested $3.3 Million in Rape-Redefining Democrats

By: Friday February 4, 2011 12:30 pm

HR3 – “The No Taxpayer Money for Abortion Act” – is a vile piece of legislation by its title alone. That the bill contained, until yesterday, a provision to redefine rape as “forcible” rape was even more insidious. In a Republican-controlled House, it’s not shocking to see this kind of medieval treatment of women become a priority over, you know, job creation. But let’s focus on the Democrats involved in this travesty. A look at the DCCC’s contributions to and on behalf of the 10 Democratic co-sponsors of HR3 show the committee spent a whopping $3,379,322.85 to keep these members in office – in 2010 alone.

Mark Critz, in his first TV ad, is basically telling voters that Democrats aren’t to be trusted and they shouldn’t hold the seat. He contrasts an ad put up by Republicans saying that Critz would vote the “liberal agenda” in Congress by saying “That ad’s not true. I opposed the health care bill. And I’m pro-life, and pro-gun. That’s not liberal.”

DCCC Pushes DC Insiders in Upcoming Special Elections

By: Tuesday April 6, 2010 9:45 am

Most of the DCCC’s actions can usually be explained by their desire to keep a congressional seat at all costs. But I frankly can’t come up with any good reason why they’re doing this.
