Well he did give an answer and it came graphically from baby bother, branded now in my mind as the image of Pontius Pilate, too busy washing hands to help right now.
King, a Land O' Lakes Republican, is the underdog candidate running against Brown-Waite, R-Brooksville, in the 5th Congressional District. King filed a complaint last week alleging the federal law aimed at keeping patients' medical information confidential, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, was violated during the preparation and presentation of an informational hearing about veterans' health care at the James A. Haley VA Medical Center in Tampa.
But wait. There's a problem with King attacking her on any of those issues. It seems his platform is even more conservative than Brown-Waite's. Other than billing himself as the "true" conservative," his issues are her issues.
So, perhaps it will be up to King to point out where Brown-Waite has not toed the party's conservative line. In that case, he'll have to bring up her support of embryonic stem cell research and her opposition to the House's intervention in the Terri Schiavo controversy. Heck, he even might need to pin her down on abortion, an issue that has been a moving target for her over the years.
