Wonder what you would find if you frisked Republican Dede Scozzafava?
Answer: She’s a liberal at heart.
A lot of conservative blogs have been going bananas over this subject while I haven’t really mentioned it. It’s a fascinating situation for everyone that enjoys politics. For those of you who aren’t informed on this subject, there is a special election being held tomorrow (November 3, 2009) in New York’s 23rd congressional district. Republican John McHugh resigned to become the United States Secretary of the Army and soon a successor will be elected to replace him.
Dede Scozzafava, a moderate Republican, was chosen by the local GOP to run against Democrat Bill Owens. Unfortunately for Ms. Scozzafava, many conservatives studied her record and found out she seems to be awfully liberal to wear the Republican brand. Check it out: Video 1 | Video 2
After Ms. Scozzafava received heat from true conservatives, growing support for the conservative independent, Doug Hoffman, began to skyrocket! Big names like Sarah Palin and Tim Pawlenty jumped on board Hoffman’s bandwagon to lend their endorsements. Needless to say, Dede Scozzafava ended up canceling her campaign due to her decreasing support and put a ‘W’ in the win column for true conservatives. Victory!
Turns out, after dropping out of the race, Ms. Scozzafava is now endorsing the Democrat candidate Bill Owens! Shocker:
One day after she suspended her own campaign and declined to publicly endorse either of her opponents, Republican Assemblywoman Dede Scozzafava has formally announced her support for Democratic candidate Bill Owens.
Hey Ms. Scozzafava, could you be more of a traitor? Yup:
In addition, her labor leader husband, Ron McDougall, issued a late-night endorsement of Owens via a statement released by the AFL -CIO, which signaled the start of a labor wave moving from Scozzafava’s camp to Owens’ side. This could prove critical when it comes to the GOTV effort.
This woman is a joke. She’s a donkey hiding in an elephant’s clothing. Talk about doing whatever it takes to get elected. The GOP leaders who handpicked her to replace John McHugh should resign or be immediately replaced! They only wasted $900,000 of donation money… No biggie! Pff, no excuses.
Side-Note: According to Public Policy Polling, Doug Hoffman is leading 51% while Bill Owens is currently at 34%. Ouch!
Go Doug Hoffman!
Dede Scozzafava now appearing at Democratic candidate Bill Owen’s rallies:
On Sunday, at an Owens campaign event at the Veterans of Foreign Wars hall on Gouverneur Street, Mr. Owens and Ms. Scozzafava talked politics during their meeting. She warned him to avoid the “hateful and divisive” tactics she said were used by her Conservative opponent.
Did I mention that Ms. Scozzafava is a joke and a disgrace to the Republican Party??? Oh yeah, I believe I did. Oh well… Doesn’t hurt reminding people.
