3 GOP Congressional Candidates decry Aaron Walker SWATTING on conference call

Today along with sev­eral other blog­gers I was on a con­fer­ence call with three con­gres­sional can­di­dates in Massachusetts

Jon Gol­nik who is run­ning in the 3rd dis­trict (my new dis­trict) Jeff Semon run­ning in the 5th dis­trict (who appeared on my radio show a few weeks ago) and Chris Shel­don run­ning in the 9th district.

They answered ques­tions on Mul­ti­ple Sub­jects on Oba­macare, on their pri­mary oppo­nents, on Term lim­its (Inter­est­ing con­trast there Jeff Semon is for them, Jon Gol­nik is against not lik­ing to fid­dle with the con­sti­tu­tion and Chris Shel­don say­ing he would vote for such a bill but won’t uni­lat­er­ally term limit him­self with­out a law)

When the time for my ques­tion came I men­tioned the Aaron Walker Swat­ting ask­ing if they would sign onto sen­a­tor Cham­b­liss’ let­ter if elected and would sup­port a new such let­ter assum­ing a pres­i­dent Rom­ney won. Their answers were notable in sev­eral ways.

Firstly they all knew about the issue. That might not seem odd but in the last 48 hours I’ve talked to more than a dozen offices of house and sen­ate mem­bers for com­ment and the major­ity of the offices I spoke to had no idea what SWAT­TING was, yet all three of these poten­tial con­gress­men knew about the issue and spoke forcibly on the subject

Mr Semon not only said he would sign but declared it “sad” that it would be nec­es­sary to press the Attor­ney Gen­eral to inves­ti­gate such law­break­ing. Mr. Shel­don agreed say­ing ” the ques­tion but strongly objected Mr. Gol­nik say­ing he would sign, Mr. Shel­don called the SWAT­TINGS “out­ra­geous” object­ing to any attempt to intim­i­date mem­bers of the press includ­ing blog­gers. Mr. Gol­nik agreed with both of his compatriots.

How is it that these three men knew about this issue with­out prompt­ing when in office after office senator’s staff’s needed the sit­u­a­tion explained?

Per­haps that’s one of the rea­sons why the GOP is feel­ing its oats in Mass­a­chu­setts. The National GOP is putting 2.2 mil­lion dol­lars into ads for house races on Mass­a­chu­setts TV.

Run that through your head a sec­ond in a year when Democ­rats can’t even pay for their own con­ven­tion, a year when the pres­i­dent is reduced to beg­ging newly weds for a share of their dowry and birth­day money the GOP finds their prospects good enough to put 2.2 mill into the pot in Massachusetts.

As Chris Shel­don put it: “It’s telling, Obama rec­og­nizes he is in trou­ble and they are dou­bling down” and Jeff Semon noted that this is not their fathers or grand­fa­thers demo­c­ra­tic party and Jon Gol­nik says that with 55% unen­rolled in his dis­trict it will be jobs jobs jobs.

If this is where we are today then the Democ­rats have a nasty sur­prise in store for them.

Today along with several other bloggers I was on a conference call with three congressional candidates in Massachusetts

Jon Golnik who is running in the 3rd district (my new district) Jeff Semon running in the 5th district (who appeared on my radio show a few weeks ago) and Chris Sheldon running in the 9th district.

They answered questions on Multiple Subjects on Obamacare, on their primary opponents, on Term limits (Interesting contrast there Jeff Semon is for them, Jon Golnik is against not liking to fiddle with the constitution and Chris Sheldon saying he would vote for such a bill but won’t unilaterally term limit himself without a law)

When the time for my question came I mentioned the Aaron Walker Swatting asking if they would sign onto senator Chambliss’ letter if elected and would support a new such letter assuming a president Romney won. Their answers were notable in several ways.

Firstly they all knew about the issue. That might not seem odd but in the last 48 hours I’ve talked to more than a dozen offices of house and senate members for comment and the majority of the offices I spoke to had no idea what SWATTING was, yet all three of these potential congressmen knew about the issue and spoke forcibly on the subject

Mr Semon not only said he would sign but declared it “sad” that it would be necessary to press the Attorney General to investigate such lawbreaking. Mr. Sheldon agreed saying ” the question but strongly objected Mr. Golnik saying he would sign, Mr. Sheldon called the SWATTINGS “outrageous” objecting to any attempt to intimidate members of the press including bloggers. Mr. Golnik agreed with both of his compatriots.

How is it that these three men knew about this issue without prompting when in office after office senator’s staff’s needed the situation explained?

Perhaps that’s one of the reasons why the GOP is feeling its oats in Massachusetts. The National GOP is putting 2.2 million dollars into ads for house races on Massachusetts TV.

Run that through your head a second in a year when Democrats can’t even pay for their own convention, a year when the president is reduced to begging newly weds for a share of their dowry and birthday money the GOP finds their prospects good enough to put 2.2 mill into the pot in Massachusetts.

As Chris Sheldon put it: “It’s telling, Obama recognizes he is in trouble and they are doubling down” and Jeff Semon noted that this is not their fathers or grandfathers democratic party and Jon Golnik says that with 55% unenrolled in his district it will be jobs jobs jobs.

If this is where we are today then the Democrats have a nasty surprise in store for them.
