These Are the Alternatives? - Part 5

Many of the Republicans candidates in the upcoming mid-term elections are VERY much to the right of the majority of this nation. It is only the economic mess created by the last administration and not fixed by the current administration that could possibly get any of these cave men and women elected...

"We need to phase Medicare and Social Security out."
Sharron Angle, Republican Senate candidate in Nevada

"There should not be [a federal minimum wage]. That is not within the scope or the powers that are given to the federal government."
Joe Miller, Republican Senate candidate in Alaska

"I am pro-life. I don't believe in the exceptions for rape or incest."
Ken Buck, Republican Senate candidate in Colorado

So This is The Alternative? - Part 4

Brad Zaun, who is running against Leonard Boswell (IA-03)

In 2001, Zaun had to be told by West Des Moines police to stay away from a former girlfriend who had accused him of harassing her. The woman called police to complain that Zaun showed up in the early morning hours and pounded on her windows. “Brad yelled from outside calling her slut and other names,” the police report states.

So This is The Alternative? - Part 3

Jeff Perry, who is running for the vacated MA 10 seat

In one case, Perry was the supervisor at the scene when the officer stuck his hand in a 14-year-old girl’s underwear, ostensibly searching for drugs. In the other, Perry accompanied the same officer to the house of a 16-year-old girl to tell her parents that she had voluntarily pulled down her pants to show she did not have any drugs.

Perry was a Wareham police sergeant in the early 1990’s

So This The Alternative? - Part 2

Tom Ganley, who is running against Rep. Betty Sutton (OH 13)

Last week we learned that a woman has filed a suit against Ganley for sexual assault and attempted rape. Ganley allegedly met with the woman, who was interested in volunteering for his U.S. Senate campaign and talking about her car payments, when he propositioned and sexually assaulted her in his private office.

So This The Alternative? - Part 1

Rich Iott who is running against Representative Marcy Kaptur (OH-09).

An election year already notable for its menagerie of extreme and unusual candidates can add another one: Rich Iott, the Republican nominee for Congress from Ohio's 9th District, and a Tea Party favorite, who for years donned a German Waffen SS uniform and participated in Nazi re-enactments.
