GOP Appoints Scandal-Ridden Congressman

Representative Ken Calvert (R-CA) was appointed by Republican leaders to the coveted House Appropriations Committee to replace Congressman John Doolitte (R-CA), who is under an ethics investigation.  Unfortunately, Congressman Calvert has more ethical issues than the man he is replacing.  House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) was the decider in appointing the morally challenged Calvert to the position.

 

Ken CalvertTheir boy Calvert has a history of ethical issues.  He was investigated by the FBI recently for the enormous profit he made from the sale of his property after receiving federal funding to build a freeway interchange nearby.  He has a long history of using his position for personal financial gain.

 

Rep. Calvert was caught by police with a prostitute in his car in 1993.  By the looks of him, I assume he would have to pay for it.  He initially ignored the police and attempted to flee the scene.  Much like Bill Clinton, Calvert proceeded to publicly lie about it and cover up.  He was also named one of the "20 Most Corrupt Members of Congress" by the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics.

 

Fortunately his wife came to her senses and divorced him around the same time as his BJ in the car.  However, the moronic voters in the 44th District of California have not been as intelligent.  That particular district includes the cities of Riverside, Corona, Norco, San Clemente, and Rubidoux.   These voters have continued to re-elect Calvert to Congress.  He is currently in his seventh term.  He received 60% of the vote in the last election and has received as much as 74% of the vote in 2000.  How pathetic!

 

Even conservatives are disgusted by John Boehner's appointment of this scumbag to the House Appropriations Committee.  A leading conservative blog, RedState.com has already criticized the selection.

 

How on earth can we take the GOP seriously when they are led by the worst elements of their party.  Surely there are some decent Republican Congressmen among the 201 that are members of the House.  I know there is a lot of dirt, but how hard is it to pick a good one?
