Republicans allege two members of Michigan's Stryker family may have links to a fraud case in South Dakota involving Medicare and the Stryker Corp.

Stryker is a medical products company.

Jon Stryker has contributed to groups protecting gay rights.

Anti-gay rights U.S. Sen. Wayne Allard, R-Colo., has called for an investigation into the fraud case to see if it extends further...

The fraud case reportedly involves a medical clinic in South Dakota and the Stryker Corp. aggreeing to repay Medicare $345,000.

The government says the clinic took money from the Stryker Corp. in exchange for using the company's orthopedic products.

Jon and Patricia Stryker, siblings, are political activists known for giving millions of dollars to Democratic causes in Michigan.

Republicans are now urging Democrats to give back possibly "tainted" donations from the Stryker family.

Angie Paccione has some real issues with Bankruptcy and fraud

Thats what I've gathered by watching the TV ads.

Marilyn Musgrave will probably survive. It's the vacant 5th. (Hefley) district I'm growing concerned about. Colorado Springs shouldn't be competitive.

Yes, it is pretty sad when a conservative city like Colorado Springs can't have a safe Republican seat.

Marilyn Musgrave should also win big, but Moveon.org has been putting up BIG money against her since before the last election. About four months ago I started receiving calls from a very conservative "sounding" organization,Coloradans for Life, blasting Mrs. Musgrave and distorting her record. I was surprised how early in the campaign they started and I received on average one call a week for about 6 weeks.

Marilyn Musgrave is my representative and she deserves to be reelected!

Look, there is one, and only one, reason the Democrats are winning in CO. Special interest money that supports these efforts.

Republicans faced this in 2004. It appears to be no different now. The only mystery is whether or not CO Republicans have attracted enough money to counter it.

"I don't know how he won the election!

I didn't vote for him, and no one I know voted for him, either!"

Thanks for the ping.

Just another one of Pelosi's honest homosexual predators in action.
