Big October Surprise For KS-3 Republican Kevin Yoder: He Refused To Take A Breathalyzer Test In 2009

Amazing that this shocking, shocking story comes out right now…
His opponent’s  campaign manager Matt Sinovic, calls Yoder’s “irresponsible actions”, ” inexcusable”:

His lies in attempt to cover up these facts are an insult to the voters of the 3rd District,” Sinovic said.

Let’s backtrack and find out what happened:

Yoder, driving a 2002 Lexus, was pulled over on Kansas Highway 10 east of Lawrence by a Kansas Highway Patrol trooper at 2:31 a.m. Feb. 8, 2009, according to Branson.

He was given a ticket for going 80 mph in a 70 mph zone and for refusing to submit to the preliminary breath test. It appears he was given a citation at the scene and not taken into custody.

Alissa McCurley, a spokesperson for Yoder, said, “He was issued a speeding ticket and then asked to take a preliminary Breathalyzer test. He declined because he had passed the sobriety test. Kevin was not driving under the influence. He paid the fine for one citation, the other was dismissed.”

And that concludes KS district-3, Keven Yoder’s October surprise.

I’m afraid there is no other choice for KS-3 voters than to vote for Stephane Moore, the wife of retiring incumbent, Dennis Moore, whose great command of the health care  issue was on display  just a couple of weeks ago:

Clinton: I almost Gag When I Hear Republicans Calling Democrats Big Spenders…Quasi Socialists


Judging from the videos of his latest campaign rally appearances, Slick Willie, ever the snake-oil salesman, had the drones eating out of his hand. Yes, there are actually people out there who believe this half-baked propaganda.

The Politico reports that  Clinton says he’s  “disturbed and ticked off” by what he’s seeing in the midterm election campaign.

Speaking at a rally for 28-term incumbent Rep. John Dingell (D-Mich.) Sunday, Clinton said argued “right-wing rhetoric” against government spending does not accurately frame how Democrats have tried to aid a country still reeling from a recession, and showed frustration that the attacks against Democrats seems to have stuck.

“I almost gag when I hear these Republicans lambasting the president and the Democrats in Congress, ‘Oh, they’re such big spenders, they’re just crazy, they’re quasi-socialist,’” he said during the rally at the University of Michigan. “I have a simple question: Who’s the last president to give you a balanced budget?

“I like all this enthusiasm, but frankly there are a few things about this election that have gotten me somewhere between disturbed and ticked off,” he added.

What he doesn’t tell them is that the last President to have a balanced budget had a Republican congress led by Newt Gingrich, who did all the heavy lifting. He just happened to be there when it happened.

I almost gag when I read that the national debt has increased $5 trillion since Speaker Pelosi took over the Speakership in Jan. 2007. Especially gag-inducing is the fact that she had vowed that there would be no new deficit spending. Her “left-wing rhetoric against government spending” turned out to have an expiration date of about 3 days.

When Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) gave her inaugural address as speaker of the House in 2007, she vowed there would be “no new deficit spending.” Since that day, the national debt has increased by $5 trillion, according to the U.S. Treasury Department.

“After years of historic deficits, this 110th Congress will commit itself to a higher standard: Pay as you go, no new deficit spending,” Pelosi said in her speech from the speaker’s podium. “Our new America will provide unlimited opportunity for future generations, not burden them with mountains of debt.”

Pelosi has served as speaker in the 110th and 111th Congresses.

At the close of business on Jan. 4, 2007, Pelosi’s first day as speaker, the national debt was $8,670,596,242,973.04 (8.67 trillion), according to the Bureau of the Public Debt, a division of the U.S. Treasury Department.  At the close of business on Oct. 22, it stood at $13,667,983,325,978.31 (13.67 trillion), an increase of 4,997,387,083,005.27 (or approximately $5 trillion).

You would think the former President would stay away from this Dem trainwreck in progress and leave what’s left of his dignity intact.

Guess not.

New Ad: Barney Frank And The Sub-Prime Disaster

This is a campaign ad that needed to be made:

“Betrayed Our Trust” needs to air on MA  TV and radio stations from now until November 2nd, but funds are needed in order to do that:… —DONATE AT LINK at left to put ad on air. Please help us put this ad on the air to voters who can retire him from the House of Representatives once and for all. Massachusetts is one of only 15 states that does not permit early voting. So this ad can influence every single voter right up to Nov 2nd!

BARNEY FRANK IS ON THE ROPES. His lead has dwindled into single digits against a very strong opponent, Marine and businessman Sean Bielat. Yet polls show many voters in his district are not aware of his pivotal role in the collapse of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and the collapse of the U.S. housing market which resulted. Thousands of his constituents need to know how Frank systematically blocked reform of Fannie and Freddie that led to financial losses or foreclosure for their families or neighbors.

Video: Jacob Turk On The Chris Stigall Radio Show

Republican, Jacob Turk recently appeared on KCMO’s Chris Stigall Show, where he discussed his campaign to unseat Emanuel Cleaver in district 5, MO.

Turk, who’s only trailing Cleaver by single digits, is finally running a television ad, but he needs money to keep it on the air. Throw him some bucks, if you can. Cleaver needs to be sent packing.
