I've been watching Rob Cornilles' schtick against Suzanne Bonamici from here in Bozeman, MT, where I live in retirement to be close to my granddaughters. Trust me when I say the odor of Rob's candidacy has wafted all the way to these parts.
I teed off on this little poser at my modest shop, The Les AuCoin Blog, this morning for one reason. Having represented Oregon 1st Congressional District for 18 years, I want to help frog-walk this fibbing flip-flopper right out of contention.
Besides the stuff you'll find at my place, last Sunday's KATU-TV debate between the candidates made these things crystal clear: Bonamici is against Citizens United's unlimited, undisclosed corporate campaign spending and Cornilles is not; Bonamici will be a target of a tsunami of such spending and Cornilles will not; Bonamici will work to end Bush tax cuts for the 1% and Cornilles will not; Bonamici--in the tradition of the progressive First District--will oppose the Tea Party and Cornilles will not.
Wayne Morse said the following to me on my way to taking this seat in Congress for the Democrats for the first time since statehood. He said, "Young man, always remember who you are. The man (sic) who can't is truly dangerous."
Bonamici knows who she is, and she's exceptional. If you read my blog, you'll see, once again, that Cornilles is a little man who is happy to be whoever he thinks he needs to be. I'm going to do what I can from here to stop him, because Wayne Morse is watching. Question: what will you do?
