More Politrix from Demos

Can that be the increasingly pungent odor of desperation emanating from the Republican challenger's camp?

Here's a guy, his third time out for the same nomination, who three months ago hit the deck running full bore at the GOP designee on his alleged support for Obamacare, is now on his heels flailing away at information he wishes wasn't "out there."

We're seven weeks away from the Republican prinary and I'm already tired of the Demos giant post card mailings and the Demos automated 'phone calls!

But they do provide grist for the OtBB mill...

I find it comforting to know that Demos "can't stand Nancy Pelosi" as we're on the same side of that issue.

But it's the people George is, quite literally, in bed with who have caused the candidate to be dubbed "the world’s first Pelosi Republican." Demos' wife Chrysa, his sister-in-law Eleni Tsakopoulos Kounalakis, and his father-in-law Angelo Tsakopoulos all have close personal ties to Demo­cratic Leader of the House Pelosi.

As Left-leaning FactCheck.org suggested in April, it's prob­ably more a Greek thing than one of political philosophy.

But "I can't stand Nancy Pelosi?" That might cause some problems within the family.

On a separate issue, another recent Demos giant post card was nothing short of risible!

Wha-at? The Demos campaign has solicited endorsements for their candidate's conservatism from two of the biggest RINOs in New York State in the past 30 years!

Both the ex-Mayor and ex-Governor would be hard-pressed to cite any Conservative credentials of their own, so their support of Demos on that count is utterly fraudulent!

The one impressive thing I've noted about George Demos is that he has hair that would make actor Oliver Pratt envious!

Hair today, gone tomorrow probably sums up his future in this race.

Well, not tomorrow, but likely June 25th.

Demos and the Hatch Act.

You know, Peter, you're on the road to doing the near impossible, making George Demos a sympathetic character.

You tried to rat Demos out for the money, and came up empty. You've been waging this personal jihad against him ever since, and you don't care how you do it.
  1. The Hatch Art of 1939 has been amended a number of times, most recently in 1993 under Clinton and again in 2012 under Obama, effectively softening the restrictions it initially imposed.
  2. Get some professional help.
I'd enjoy seeing someone like Demos squirm, but bring genuine something to the party next time.

The 1993 Amendment did not allow for federal employee’s to run for office. It allowed them to take part in partisan politics but that did not mean run for office.

In 1993, legislation was passed that substantially amended the Hatch Act. The Hatch Act Reform Amendments of 1993 permit most Federal employees to take an active part in partisan political management and partisan political campaigns. While Federal employees are still prohibited from seeking public office in partisan elections, most employees are free to work, while off duty, on the partisan campaigns of the candidates of their choice.

[sigh!]

Peter, you took your shot and went up in flames. Despite my abiding distrust of and distaste for George Demos, you get no sympathy here. Begone!
