This election year has become just too gross, thanks to the Democrats and their ‘do anything for power’ madness. Even Bill Clinton has fallen back into the sewer. We learned last night that Bill Clinton was once again President Obama’s emissary to try and convince (bribe with some other job) a democrat candidate to leave an election race. This time, Clinton tried to convince the only Democrat in the Florida Senate race to bow out and make room for the lifetime Republican turned mercenary pol:
In an appearance on Fox news Thursday night Republican-turned-independent Senate candidate, Florida Gov. Charlie Crist said he spoke with Rep. Kendrick Meek and “several people” at the White House about having Meek step out of the race.
Crist would not specify to whom he spoke at the White House, but he did say he spoke to Meek about the possible shift and that Meek was “considering it.”
For this to work you have to have a conspiracy. Meek as to get something to get out of the race, and Crist needs to commit to caucusing with the Democrats if he wins – usually for something in return. And Obama holds all the power to bestow the gifts.
This is not Clinton’s first run as briber-in-chief. He was also the water boy for Obama’s efforts to get Joe Sestak out of the primary against Arlen Specter. Another disgusting exclamation point to a sadly enlightening election cycle. More here and here.
Time to clean out DC and start over with better people. And let’s leave the choice of representation to the voters. One thing is clear, we need much stronger laws regarding election manipulation.
