Pete Starkís non-apology apology
SFGate: Token Conservative ^ | 4/18/12 | Debra J. Saunders

Posted on 04/18/2012 5:05:33 PM PDT by SmithL

Pete Stark’s political consultant Alex Tourk sent out this email today to apologize to Alameda County Deputy District Attorney Eric Swalwell. Stark’s bad, as The Chronicle’s Carla Marinucci reported: He accused Swalwell, who serves on the Dublin city council, of accepting “hundreds of thousands” in bribes — even though Stark could not substantiate the charge.

Here’s the statement:

“I misspoke the other evening when I made allegations against my opponent for taking bribes and for that I apologize.  
Yet I do have concerns about my opponent’s behavior. . . .
“Stark gives bumbling, dyspeptic old fools who say stupid things a bad name.”

Is this the original Pete Stark; or is it his son? Seems like if he’s the original, he would have been on life support the last 15-20 years.

Nice job of Stark’s constituents of keeping that arrogant, atheist old POS in Congress.

It’s a safely Dem district, so I’m glad it elects someone who makes his party look bad.

As long as his district re-elects this embarassment, they are certifiable lunatic libs. And they can save the psychologists’ fees.
