WHY DOESN'T JACK WANT TO DEBATE? REASON NUMBER 19: HE DOESN'T WANT ANYONE TO KNOW HE'S TRIED TO TAKE A $50,000 BRIBE FROM AN UDERCOVER AGENT FOR THE FBI
Wednesday, October 18, 2006
(MONONGAHELA, October 18) -- Washington County Commissioner and Pennsylvania 12th district Republican Congressional nominee Diana Irey -- responding to Jack Murtha's refusal to meet with her to debate the issues, despite newspaper editorials urging him to debate, a League of Women Voters offer to host and sponsor a debate, and local television stations' offer to air the debate -- today released this statement:
"Monday we began our 21-part series, 'Why doesn't Jack want to debate?' wherein I suggest 21 reasons Jack Murtha might be refusing to debate me in public.
"Today I offer reason number 19 Jack Murtha doesn't want to debate me: because HE DOESN'T WANT ANYONE TO KNOW HE TRIED TO TAKE A $50,000 BRIBE FROM AN UNDERCOVER AGENT FOR THE FBI.
"Check it out for yourself -- go watch the FBI ABSCAM surveillance video of Jack Murtha asking the undercover FBI agent 'is that okay, Tony?' when his middleman, Howard Criden, informs the FBI agent that 'John says that it is okay for you to give me what's in that drawer' -- a clear reference to the $50,000 cash bribe sitting in the FBI agent's desk drawer.
You can see the video here and you can read the transcript here.
For those keeping score, here's the running scorecard:
21 REASONS JACK DOESN'T WANT TO DEBATE: HE DOESN'T WANT ANYONE TO KNOW:
21. He has voted himself 12 straight pay raises.
20. He has voted to raise his own pay from $42,500/yr to $165,500/yr.
19. He tried to take a $50,000 cash bribe from an undercover agent for the FBI.
-- 30 --
Paid for by Diana Irey for Congress
He dosen't want anyone to know; He exchanged emails with Foley.
How does Murtha keep getting re-elected?
"How does Murtha keep getting re-elected?"
Evidently he has a lot of morons (Democraps) in his district.
Ya gotta give this woman one thing "She aint playing".
If only there were more Republicans with the courage to challenge their opponents with the truth.
Thankfully for America, Murtha finally has a challenger who is telling it like is. We have to do everything we can to help Diana Irey get her message out. If the voters in the 12th District really know who Jack Murtha is, it'll be Diana Irey by a landslide. And that's a fact, Jack.
As an American living in another state I'am totally for Diana Irey !!!! I Do Not like this jurk Murtha.
