The Southern Arizona Sting…check it out!
Next time you see a quote from Gabby Giffords look closely at who it actually comes from. It seems Gabby is missing in action which is a good campaign strategy for her. When Scarpinato (Star) calls and quotes a member of the campaign staff, they have deniability. The other side of the coin is if Gabby says nothing and does nothing she cannot make a mistake. If you remember, in the 2006 election Gabby always had a surrogate speak for her when debating her Republican rival.
She will not be able to play that game with Tim Bee or his Campaign Manager Meg Econ. I predict you will not see Gabby debate Tim Bee because of her poor performance record in these types of encounters. Speaking of a poor record I just came across Gabby’s voting record (identical to Pelosi’s) as it applies to oil and gas prices. More to come……………………
Giffords voted to exempt members of Congress from paying back their college student loans, but voted against giving active duty military persons an interest break on their student loans. This, from a Congresswomen who says she is doing all she can for her military constituents. (Roll Call 612, July 11, 2007 and Roll Call 31, January 17, 2007).
We have known for quite a while about Gifford’s blatant abuse of the franking privilege extended to Congress but the current eye opening revelation by “The Star Newspapers” Daniel Scarpinato shows Gifford’s and her handlers have no shame. According to federal disclosure statements Gifford’s beautiful, glossy. color campaign brochures that she sent out cost the taxpayers one quarter million dollars to print and mail. She has reached the status of number “1” in spending taxpayer dollars for mailing in all of Congress.
Gabby and her team have no respect for hard earned taxpayer dollars and must feel it is their duty to spend the money in shameless self promotion. We demand that she pay back the public funds she used and replace them with her campaign funds which she should have used to begin with. Gabby, one quarter of a million dollars would pay for a lot of meals on wheels for our seniors.
