The McCall Issue

Today's Examiner column deals with Republicans' potential problems in Senate District 17 should the controversial A.J. McCall be elected:

McCall has a history of sleaze and was once arrested after allegedly attempting to force a woman into his van in a Wal-Mart parking lot...

It is also slowly coming to light that some of McCall's so-called "endorsements" may not all be on the up-and-up, and that McCall may have asked a few people for endorsements saying that he was running for office, but not elaborating on which one and against whom. Hence, when the time came for McCall to announce, he could roll out a "list of endorsements" that is a mile long. Since the McCalls have given a ton of money to Republican legislative candidates over the years, it is unlikely that we'll see any endorsement errors of half-truths corrected. A quiet form of blackmail, perhaps?

With majorities, it seems, come the inevitable baggage of power.

"Magoo" McCall (yep, that was his name growing up!) has lots and lots of skeletons in his closet. Some of them quirks and some of them outright crimes. Wiretapping, attempted kidnapping and a host of others - amazing what family money payouts can do to shut down any criminal charges. Someone should ask him why he runs the A/C repair department of his family business (there's a whole 'nother nest of crooks)instead of practicing law. Scratch the surface on ole' Magoo and you'll find a whole mess of crazy!

I am doubting the Republican party more and more. In the State House and Senate our Republican leaders are showing less than conservative values by
supporting and endorsing the wrong type of candidate just to get a majority. I know McCalls endrosements are questioned here-my point is we are starting to move away from being true conservatives who walk the walk.
