The supposed Republican candidate for Congress in New York's 23rd congressional district, Assemblywoman "Dede" Scozzafava, is in the midst of a campaign spiraling out of control. Her campaign is just as liberal as the Democrat's campaign, she had a spy asking Conservative candidate Doug Hoffman questions the other week, disguised as a reporter, she is a sinking ship who is dragging down Republican hopes to keep the district in their hands, and she is even calling the police on Conservative bloggers.
Tonight, Dede Scozzafava, the Republican candidate for the November 3 special election in the 23rd congressional district, spoke to about 100 Republicans at the Lewis County GOP dinner at the Elks Lodge 1605. After a dinner of turkey, mashed potatoes, and stuffing, Scozzafava fended off criticism that she wasn't as conservative as third-party candidate Doug Hoffman and urged her supporters to vote for her in order to keep her Democratic opponent Bill Owens from serving as a rubber stamp for Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama's agenda in Washington. It was a fairly typical evening--until the speech ended and someone with Scozzafava's campaign called the police. On me.
The rest is a must read over at the Weekly Standard.
Not sure how Scozzafava could claim she is Conservative, considering she supports card check legislation which would make it easier for unions to threaten workers into unionization, she is as liberal as they come on social issues, she has no economic understanding as she supports the stimulus package, when all 178 (177 voted, one was late to the vote) Republicans in the House opposed it, has been supported by the ACORN associated "Working Families Party", etc. etc. etc.
Look, if the Republican party & Conservative activists want to retain the 23rd congressional district in Republican hands, they must elect Doug Hoffman to the United States Congress, as he is the only electable Republican in the election, he is the only Conservative candidate who the voters can resonate with, and he will caucus with the Republicans and the Republican Study Committee as well.
Does anyone find it interesting that Congressman John McHugh has not commented on this special election? While Congressman McHugh was not the most Conservative Republican in the House of Representatives, he does have a respectable 71% rating from the American Conservative Union, was a good pro-life Conservative, and opposes card check without question.
Scozzafava cannot even commit to staying in her own party, do we really want her handling literal life & death decisions in Washington D.C. to the future of our Nation? I don't think so, Doug Hoffman 09!
