Rehberg Abusing Taxpayer Money

Shares

The Montana Democratic Party has issued an official complaint against Congressman Rehberg for abusing taxpayer money.

Recently, Representative Rehberg’s congressional office sent out this mailer. A quick glance and it’s pretty clear that tax payer money should not have been used to print and mail Rehberg’s response to this campaign.

Maybe Developer Denny was just trying to get creative since he keeps losing the fundraising battle to Sen. Tester.

Really?????

http://clerk.house.gov/public_disc/franked.aspx

In accordance with House Rule 24, Members must submit a sample or a description of the contents of mass mailings to the House Commission on Congressional Mailing Standards and obtain the approval of the commission before the mass mailing can be sent. Copies of materials approved by and filed with this Commission are available.

So the Dems on the Commission objected to Rehberg’s mailing and advised accordingly? This is such a non-issue. Perhaps the “outraged” Montana Dems should have a word with their DC counterparts to ensure they are all on the same page.

Oh, I see now. Dennis sent out a lying mailer at tax-payer expense , but it’s all okay because his Republicant buddies agreed that he could waste our money on lies. That makes perfect sense. Austerity for thee but not for me, biahtches!

Rob; it’s hysterical that you would mention “biatches!” Several months back House Dems sent out a taxpayer funded “mailer” accusing R’s of attempting to end Medicare. In fact Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, the current DNC chair, said in her mailer: http://shark-tank.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/DWS-2_Page_2.jpg

As you said, “Austerity for thee but not for me?” Was it ok for DWS’ buddies to agree she could waste our money on partisan demagoguery?

For Dems to cry foul over Rehberg’s mailing is comical hypocrisy.

Wrong on many levels, Craig. The hypocrisy lies with you. 1) DWS’s mailing was specifically about policy, not campaign. 2) There were no lies in the Dem mailing. There are in Rehburp’s. 3) YOU are the one who argued that it’s okay for Republicants to agree with a mailing, but if those in control of the House (Republicants) agree with a DWS mailing, it’s somehow my bad? WRONG! The House Commission on Congressional Mailing Standards is controlled by GOoPers. Do tell how Debbie got her insidious mailing passed by those … 4) And this is the biggie. Debbie Wassermann-Schultz hasn’t… Read more »

Rob, you are wrong on all accounts. FactCheck called out DWS and Obama over their claims. See: http://www.factcheck.org/2011/05/dnc-chair-throws-truth-to-wolves/ and http://factcheck.org/2011/04/factchecking-obamas-budget-speech/

Here is another page from her mailer: http://shark-tank.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/DWS-2_Page_31.jpg

This was political and not informative. To argue otherwise, is well….

Again, all of this is a non-issue. For Dems to scream foul is hilarious after their political franking antics.

This is a joke post, right?

Cause if it isn’t you guys are living in Opposite World.

In Opposite World you ignore the trillions wasted on so called “shovel ready jobs”, Freddie and Fannie, Soylndra, Fast and Furious.

In Opposite world the PO is an efficient way to deliver mail. HC bureaucracies will save us money.

A well none conservative commentator once said, “When Libs loose power they become looney”.

Looney indeed.

You may be wrong about everything, but you are likeable. That’s one thing in your favor. I’ll stop there though. It doesn’t get better.

The Post Office is an efficient way to deliver mail. I can’t wait to listen to the howls of outrage from conservatives when they have to pay $5-$10 to send a piece of mail.

And the stimulus did work. It probably prevented us from slipping into a much deeper recession.

But you probably didn’t hear either of those things on Fox News.

It ain’t the first time Denny has pushed the franking envelope:

And it isn’t the first time that Craig has been carrying water for Denny on this issue. Bizarrely enough, he’s been doing it since at least 2006.

If you can’t see the hypocrisy of a self-proclaimed champion of small government sending these government-funded political ads to the constituents who pay for them, it’s pretty hard to imagine you’ll ever be able to look at Rehberg’s actions with anything resembling a critical eye.

I have been there before. Its not as easy an answer as you think it could be, it is something that you will need to sit down and work out for yourself over over some time.

This is a different sort of opinion that many people don’t usually talk about. Generally when I come across these sort of things I like to post them on Digg. Although this time I’m not sure if this would be best for the users. I’ll take a look around your site though and submit something else.

Depending on yourself to make the decisions can really be upsetting and frustrating. It takes years to build confidence. Its not the sort of thing that simply just happens.
