Joe Biden Attacks Pete Buttigieg In New Ad, Buttigieg Camp Hits Back

Joe Biden Attacks Pete Buttigieg In New Ad, Buttigieg Camp Hits Back

Joe Bidens’ campaign released a attack ad about Pete Buttigieg and his accomplishments as mayor of South Bend, Indiana, as compared to Biden’s former Vice President record on national policy.

Via The Insider:

Both Vice President Biden and former Mayor Pete Buttigieg have taken on tough fights,” the ad voiceover says. “Under threat of a nuclear Iran, Joe Biden helped to negotiate the Iran deal. And under threat of disappearing pets, Buttigieg negotiated lighter licensing regulations on pet chip scanners.

The ad continues: “We’re electing a President. What you’ve done matters.” When President Obama called on him, Joe Biden helped lead the passage of the Affordable Care Act. And when park goers called on Pete Buttigieg, he installed decorative lights under bridges, giving citizens of South Bend colorfully illuminated rivers.”

Pete Buttigiegs’ campaign responded:

At this moment, the American people are crying out for something completely different from this classic Washington-style of politics.

While Washington politics trivializes what goes on in communities like South Bend, South Bend residents who now have better jobs, rising income, and new life in their city don’t think their lives are a Washington politician’s punchline.

Pete’s on-the-ground experience as mayor, turning around a Midwestern industrial city, is exactly why he is running for president.

The vice president’s decision to run this ad speaks more to where he currently stands in this race than it does about Pete’s perspective as a mayor and veteran.

Joe Biden seems to forget that he once said: “I’ve never had an interest in being mayor. That’s a real job. You have to produce. That is why I have been a senator for 36 years.” March 29, 2012

LGBT Weekly Publisher Stampp Corbin Accused of Fraud To Help Embattled San Diego Mayor

Stampp Cobin accused of Fraud

LGBT Weekly publisher Stampp Corbin is being accused of filing a fraudulent recall notice in an effort to keep in office San Diego’s embattled Mayor Bob Filner, who faces allegations of sexual harrasment.  The case against Filner has been brewing since mid-July, when a former member of his administration, Donna Frye, told a news conference there were serious accusations that Filner mistreated women.  Since then six other women have stepped forward accusing Filner of sexual harrasment.

Corbin, who has a history of strong support and close involvement with Filner, surprised the San Diego political world on Thursday, July 25, when he was the first to initiate a recall notice against Filner via a classified ad in the UT San Diego. But many say its a political ploy to actually keep Filner in office.  By triggering the recall process Corbin appears to be taking time away from organizers to mount a proper campaign. And it calls into question whether another recall effort led by land-use consultant Michael Pallamary, who has given Filner until yesterday, July 29, to resign or face a recall petition, can now go forward.

Further complicating matters, Corbin has announced that he will not mount a funded campaign with paid campaign staff to collect signatures, and instead will simply make a copy of the petition available to anyone who stops by his office at LGBT Weekly.

Observers say the biggest risk is that Corbin could walk into the City Clerk’s Office any day with a few signatures, and get the petition rejected automatically. Such a rejection by the City would guarantee six extra months in office for Filner, as city rules prohibit filing of recall petitions against a city official if a petition has failed within the past six months.

According to one  longtime Republican political activist who is friends with Corbin ,  she said they has spoken several times last week and she is convinced that Corbin is playing “Chicago-style politics.”

“He bragged to me that it would be a way to stop the group getting ready to file” their own recall drive, Jester told the UT San Diego. “He said, ‘It occurred to me that it would derail the other group.’”

Corbin has denied the accusations but told 10News San Diego that he did indeed make the statements but was not being serious..

“When you’re two leaders and on opposite sides of the issue and you’re friends, you often make jokes,” said Corbin. “You often make jokes and be inappropriate because it’s fun!”

Michael Pallamary who also wants to mount a recall petition against Filner has given Corbin 24 hours to drop his campaign or he would file a complaint with the District Attorney’s Office, charging him with violations of the state elections code.

Last Friday, The San Diego LGBT Community Center’s board of directors went on record demanding Filner’s resignation and the San Diego Democrats for Equality issued the same demand on Thursday, along with the San Diego Democratic Party and Debbie Wasserman Shultz of the National Democratic Party.

Houston TX’s Manuel Rodriguez Jr: Don’t Vote for My Opponent, He MIGHT Be GAY!

 I hate messing with Texas.  (Oh who am I kidding, no I don’t and they make it so damn easy!)

Case in point  Manuel Rodriguez, Jr a trustee of the Houston Independent School District who’s running on a platform of hate and bigotry to keep his elected seat from challenger Ranino Fonseca by publicizing that Fonseca MIGHT be gay. 

A flyer made by Rodriguez says that voters should not vote for his opponent because of his history of advocating for LGBT people, and his endorsement by the Houston GLBT Political Caucus. A recently printed flyer also suggests that Fonseca being 52 and unmarried is a reason that Houstonians should not trust him to make decisions affecting children, and points out that he has a “male partner.”

Now it looks like Rodriguez’s anti-gay re-election platform is blowing up in his face.  Other HISD Trustees have joined in the chorus of people speaking out against the  flyer. “I denounce the reprehensible, mean-spirited, bigoted mailer that was sent out in the HISD, District III race,” Trustee Juliet Katherine Stipeche said via her Facebook wall. “I ask my colleagues to maintain and uphold HISD’s total non-discrimination policy and treat every person, including other candidates, with dignity and respect. Let us embrace diversity and equality and treat every person as we would like ourselves to be treated ”

The GLBT caucus is urging people to contact the editorial board of the Houston Chronicle to encourage them to rescind their endorsement of Rodriquez in light of his campaign tactics

Six Congressional Democrats Calli For Weiner’s Resignation – They Are The Ones Who Should Resign

So far six lilly-livered, GOP ass kissing congressional Democrats have called for  Congressman Anthony Weiner (D-New York) to resign over the “scandalous” and “lewd” pictures that Weiner sent over Twitter.

Never mind that Senator David Vitter (R-Louisiana), slept with hookers, won re-election and remains in office, is holding a $2,500-a-person fundraiser tonight and despite the fact that Weiner had no physical contact with these women, and in fact, did not commit adultery. Weiner’s actions are inappropriate but Vitter’s was illegal

But come on now does Anthony Weiner’s (MIGHTY) dick pic really live up to say the scandal of John Ensign?

And as for the 6 GOP asskissing “so called” Democrats listed below.  YOU are the ones who should be ashamed of yourself by pandering to the Right and not standing up for one of the best and most forceful members of the House that you have.  You six are prime examples of exactly whats wrong with the Democratic party.

1.Senator David Pryor of Arkansas
2.Congressman Mike Ross of Arkansas
3.Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz of Pennsylvania
4.Congressman Mike Michaud of Maine
5.Congresswoman Niki Tsongas of Massachusetts
6.Congressman Joe Donnelly of Indiana

The Republicans may suck but they stand together.  And that’s why they always win over you.  And since you all seem to be so out of the loop as to not understand this,  not only is the Tea Party the reason that the Democrats lost so many seats in 2010.  It was also because we, your voters stayed home because we are so DISGUSTED with you as a political party. 

And that disgust is continuing to this day

Good Luck in 2012

Weasel like Rand Paul Kentucky Senate candidate Rand Paul appeared on Fox News today where he was interviewed by some blond bimbo and refused to condemn a head-stomping attack last night on a female MoveOn activist by one of his supporters outside a debate in Lexington, calling it a “bit of a crowd control problem.” While Ms. Newshack Bimbo called “it a bit of a scuffle.”

Lexington, Kentucky Rand Paul Supporter Attacks and Stomps On Womans Head From MoveOn.org – Do You Know The Attacker?

Last night in a scene that could have been out of “American History X” during the Kentucky Senatorial debate  supporters of Republican Tea Party candidate Rand Paul was captured by a local news affiliate attacking and literally stomping the head of a member of MoveOn.org.

Lauren Valle, went to the hospital after explaining what had happened to local press. As of 11:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time she remained there, according to another MoveOn official. According to a local Fox station, Valle had attempted to approach Paul before the debate

The video of the attack showsValerie attacked and dragged to the pavement by her red sweater. Once on the ground a man wearing white sneakers stomps down on her head while people scream “get the cops”

Lexington Police Department, Lt. Edward Hart, says that as off 12:30 a.m. Eastern Standard Time they have not yet identified the man captured on video stomping the head of the MoveOn volunteer. Hart said that the department would be reviewing news footage of the incident and that they “are hoping someone can identify who the person is.” Until then, he said, it is a “pending investigation.”

I know the picture quality of the attacker above right is not that great and comes from the screen cap of the video news report.  But if you recognize or know this man PLEASE contact The Lexington. KY police Department at (859) 258-3600 or contact me via my email located in the upper right hand corner of this page under “TIPS”

No matter what side you are on violence and intolerance like this should nopt be allowed or encourged and those who do it must be held accountable.

Republican North Carolina State Representative Larry Brown Sernds Out Anti-Gay Email Calling Gays ‘Queers’ And ‘Fruitloops’

Republican North Carolina State Representaive Larry Brown sent his fellow House Republicans an e-mail last week where he referred to gays as “queers” and “fruitloops.”
Brown was responding to an e-mail House Minority Leader Paul Stam of Apex sent to members of his caucus about House Speaker Joe Hackney getting an award from the Equality NC Foundation, a gay-rights group. Brown congratulated  Hackney on getting an award from the gay Foundation: writing  “I hope all the queers are thrilled to see him. I am sure there will be a couple legislative fruitloops there in the audience”

Brown sent the email to over 60 people.

You know whats really infuriating about this?  If the fat good old boy bigot replaced “queers” or “fruitloops” with the n-word or anti-Semitic reference he’d be out of a job or facing some very serious shit. But just because they are anti-gay references, he could possibly get away with it even without apologizing.

So lets all contact this pathetic excuse for a human being and Larry “Bud” Mehlman lookalike hillbilly and let him know that he sucks.
