Breitbart: Listen to Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton Trolling for Funds

» Shock Audio: Facing ‘Obligations’ From Leadership, Democrat Congresswoman Leaves Voicemail for Lobbyist Cash – Big Government.

Congresscritters are being pressured to obtain campaign funds for their beleaguered fellows in vulnerable elections this fall.  Such is the pressure coming down from Pelosi, that Eleanor Holmes Norton left the following  (probably illegal)  voicemail with a lobbyist and past contributor.

This is, uh, Eleanor Norton, Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton. Uh, I noticed that you have given to uh, other colleagues on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. I am a, um, Senior Member, a twenty year veteran and am Chair of the Sub-committee on Economic Development, Public Buildings and Emergency Management. I’m handling the largest economic development project in the United States now, the Homeland Security Compound of three buildings being built on the uh, old St. Elizabeth’s hospital site in the District of Columbia along with uh, fifteen other, uh, sites here for, that are part of the stimulus .

I was, frankly, uh, uh, surprised to see that we don’t have a record, so far as I can tell, of your having given to me despite my uh, long and deep uh, work. In fact, it’s been my major work, uh, on the committee and sub-committee it’s been essentially in your sector.

I am, I’m simply candidly calling to ask for a contribution. As the senior member of the um, committee and a sub-committee chair, we have (chuckles) obligations to raise, uh funds. And, I think it must have been me who hasn’t, frankly, uh, done my homework to ask for a contribution earlier. So I’m trying to make up for it by asking for one now, when we particularly, uh, need, uh contributions, particularly those of us who have the seniority and chairmanships and are in a position to raise the funds.

I’m asking you to give to Citizens for Eleanor Holmes Norton, PO Box 70626, DC, 20024. I’ll send you a follow-up note with appreciation for having heard me out. Thanks again.

It’s illegal to imply or connect favors or penalties -coming from congress-  to campaign donations, as has been done in this telephone message.

Thanks to Andrew Breitbart and the kind contributor of the recorded voice mail, which can be heard at Big Government.

Free Health Care When? and Yes, Free Viagra for Sex Offenders

Health care overhaul spawns mass confusion for public | McClatchy.

Above linked is an address of public  misunderstandings about the scope and the time frame of implementation for Obamacare.

Unmentioned in the article are hospitals which were diverting patients, and on  critical census status  in the week after obamacare passed, due to this little misunderstanding about Obamacare.

Such is the degree to which the supporters of Obamacare understood what they were supporting.

According to Rollcall, the Congressional Research Service has confirmed that sex offenders and rapists will have access to tax payer funded Viagra and other sex performance enhancers under the current Obamacare plan.

Republican Senator Tom Coburn had offered an amendment to allow democrats a way out of this embarrassing situation.  Apparently fearing a backlash from their associates and constituency, the democrats declined to pass the Coburn sponsored amendment to eliminate coverage of Viagra for known sex offenders.

Dems support buying viagra for sex offenders

Tom Coburn opened the trap and the Senate Dems jumped right in.

An amendment to the health care bill was introduced to stop any funding for Viagra and like drugs for sex offenders, rapists, and pedophiles.

The dems, claiming this amendment to be a mockery of the senate and themselves, did exactly as was expected, and voted against it… thus supporting the funding of erectile dysfunction treatments for sex offenders.

The Amendment was defeated 57 – 42.

T shirts, commercials, bumper stickers and ads are forthcoming, to celebrate this pavlovian response.

Kantor sez- quit whining for political gain, Dems

The House minority Whip, Eric Kantor, who is accustomed to real threats,  and whose campaign office apparently got a bullet through the window, told the Dems to quit pretending they’re the only ones who get threats.

The nutty left has become  increasingly Jew-hating, in the template of 1930s.  This reversal of attitude, likely comes after the massive infusion of funding and influence from the Middle e=East. – Cantor Says Campaign Office Was Shot At, Accuses Dems of Exploiting Threats.

One of the Dems,  was crying about a coffin placed in his yard to represent the patients who would die as a result of Obama-care.
