The McCall IssueToday'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.
