U.S. congressmen always tell us that they are looking out for our best interest and the overall best interest of the state that they represent. Some of the things that are happening as we near the midterm elections probably make many of us question their sincerity.
The race for Governorships and Senate seats is tight in a number of states around the country and some politicians are starting to let us see them sweat; not intentionally, of course. But under the circumstances they have not been able to disguise those unidentified droplets on their brows and neither have they been able to use the normal smoke and mirrors routine to distract us. They are too busy fighting for their political life!
Things have become so hot that some of them are resorting to tactics that they only use in emergency situations. A good example of this is what is happening in Kentucky in the race between Republican Senator Mitch McConnell and Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes. According to a report by Jason Easley in Politicus USA, Grimes – who is the current Kentucky Secretary of State, “is calling for a federal investigation into voter intimidation tactics that are being used by Sen. Mitch McConnell in Kentucky.” Stay tuned.
