The REAL Story Behind the Toricelli Scandal
So Bob Toricelli is stepping down, and the Democrats are going to have to go through all sorts of illegal manipulations and court procedures to attempt to bypass New Jersey LAW in order to find someone who can beat the Republican candidate. That is a big story, but here is the real scandal:
Seven days ago, our esteemed Senate Majority Leader was in New Jersey, telling us to look beyond Toricelli’s past, and vote for him. That’s right, even though no new charges have surfaced and Mr. Toricelli has never served a day in jail or even been charged with a crime, he is so ethically tainted that he can not run for office. However, as Tom Daschle has NO ethics whatsoever, it is no big deal for him to publicly lie to voters that Mr. Toricelli is what is right for America:
Mr. Daschle urged New Jerseyans today to look beyond Mr. Torricelli’s ethical problems, however, because he said the stakes of the election were so steep.
“What America looks like in the years ahead will depend on the battles we fight right there on the Senate floor,” Mr. Daschle said. “And we have never had a race in which there was more at stake than what is happening right now.”
That is right. The day before Daschle accuses the President of politicizing the war on Iraq (an unfounded charge which we all know is based on intentionally mis-interpreted quotes from Bush), he is telling us that POLITICAL CONTROL OF THE SENATE is so important, we should disregard ethics. Remember, nothing has changed- no new charges have been brought against Toricelli- he is the SAME man Daschle was stumping for last week.
A fine party you Democrats run. Are you guys trying to help Clinton’s legacy by comparison? Meanwhile, Bonior and McDermott are in Iraq essentially committing treason.
On election day, everyone should ask themselves, why on earth should I trust these Democrats with my future, my wealth, and my security?
*** Update ***
Reader H. W. claims that something has changed- there is a new document being released. That may be true, but that is not my point. Nothing has changed about Toricelli, the man. He was a sewer trout last week, and he remains a pilfering egotist today. The nature of the man is still the same- he is scum. What has really changed are the polls numbers, and thus, the Democrats approach. Who needs a moral compass when you have a pollster?
