I also reported on how they have already started lying about and attacking Congressman Ford, yet will not allow any comments to be posted on their blog to rebut their lies and attacks.
It looks as though blogger Nathan Moore will stand beside his anti-first amendment view throughout the election. Speaking on why he will not allow dissenting opinion to be posted on his blog, Moore said:
"On a practical matter, I saw what resulted from the comments in the campaign blogs in the primary. For the most part, nothing was added to the discussion by having them active. This stance may change in the future, but for now, if you don’t like what we say, you can post on your blog or start your own. Or email me at nmoore-at-nathanmoorelaw.com."
Okay, just cut the crap. We all know why you will not allow any commentary on your blog other than your own--you are afraid someone will expose Bob Corker.
You are afraid someone will expose Bob Corker's huge character flaws. You are afraid that someone will expose that Bob Corker once hired illegal workers for his construction business. You are afraid that someone will expose the fact that Bob Corker has never lowered taxes in his life; yet raised them repeatedly. You are afraid that someone will expose that Bob Corker is pro-abortion. You are afraid someone will expose that Bob Corker supported the selling of our ports to the United Arab Emirates. You are afraid that someone will expose the fact that Bob Corker is endorsed by Big Oil and has took tens of thousands of dollars from them. You are afraid someone will expose that Bob Corker is a multi-millionaire, yet will not support raising the minimum wage. And you are afraid that someone will expose that Bob Corker oversaw Chattanooga's long term debt jump by 48% during his tenure as Mayor.
Simply put, you are afraid of the truth.
However, I guess I would be too if my candidate were a fraud.
Days of Congressional Inaction on Ethics
Above is the number of days that have passed since Jack Abramoff pleaded guilty to bribing Congressman.
It is also the number of days in which Congress has failed to pass an ethics reform bill that would limit private travel, ski and golf junkets, and would call for a full disclosure of expenses by lobbyists on members of Congress.
It is time for Congress to step up and pass an ethics reform bill that would do all of the above. In addition, it is time to end the pork barrel spending system as we know it and establish an independent ethics commission that would review ethics complaints against members of Congress.
I am proud Congressman Harold Ford Jr. is fighting for that reform!
