    Ex-Rep. Paul Kanjorski, D-Pa., pens an op-ed in the New York Times today about the proper political response to this weekend's tragedy. I wholeheartedly support the former Congressman (Kanjorski lost his seat in November) when he argues that, following this weekend's shooting, Congressman need to remain open and accessible to the public. However, Kanjorski is rather hypocritical when he climbs up on his soapbox: We all lose an element of freedom when security considerations distance public officials from the people. Therefore, it is incumbent on all Americans to create an atmosphere of civility and respect in which political discourse can...
  • Defeated Veteran Democrat: ‘Taxes Are Going to Have to Go Up’

    Despite President Obama’s suggestion that he’s willing to compromise with Republicans to extend all the Bush tax cuts at least temporarily, not all Democrats are willing to follow him down that path. Amid a liberal backlash against the president, Rep. Paul Kanjorski, D-Pa., told us on ABC’s “Top Line” today that there isn’t “any way in the world” he would agree to extending the tax cuts for upper-income American – even if it’s only done so temporarily. “I would suspect most Democrats agreed with the president when he campaigned against allowing tax reductions for millionaires and billionaires -- took that...

    PAUL E. KANJORSKI YOU ARE FIRED!!! DAMN IT FEELS GOOD TO SAY THAT!Tuesday I stood at a poll for a guy I considered to be the best guy in any Pennsylvania race. Throughout the day I had many conversations with the folks coming in to vote. My primary goal was promotion of a candidate, the bonus for me was the various reasons, attitudes and personalities encountered through out the day. To breakdown the Scranton voters in Lackawanna County goes a little like this, people who knew, people who didn’t know, people who would vote Democrat no matter what, people who...
  • Hail Halperin: Calls Out Deutsch, Ford On Kanjorski Double-Standard

    That Donny Deutsch and Harold Ford, Jr. would jump to defend a Democrat who made a hideously impolitic remark, whereas they would have skewered a Republican saying the same thing, is altogether predictable. What's remarkable was that Mark Halperin called them out on it. It happened on Morning Joe today in the context of Dem PA Rep. Paul Kanjorski's comment yesterday that a housing bill he was advocating helped "good, average Americans" and not "minorities" or "defective people." Halperin was first to comment, and actually launched a pre-emptive strike against the double-standard, observing "this is one of those instances where...

    Rep. Paul Kanjorski (D-PA): "We're giving relief to people that I deal with in my office every day now unfortunately. But because of the longevity of this recession, these are people and they're not minorities and they're not defective and they're not all the things you'd like to insinuate that these programs [are] about, these are average, good American people."

    In the ongoing Wall Street Reform Conference Committee meeting Wednesday to merge the House and Senate versions of the recently-passed finance bills, Rep. Paul Kanjorski (D-Penn.) bemoaned the impact of the recession on his constituents. “We're giving relief to people that I deal with in my office every day now unfortunately. But because of the longevity of this recession, these are people -- and they're not minorities and they're not defective and they're not all the things you'd like to insinuate that these programs are about -- these are average, good American people,” Kanjorski states. Kanjorski, Chairman of the Financial...

    Rep. Paul Kanjorski, Chairman of the Financial Services Subcommittee, stated on CSPAN that the $550 billion electronic run on money market funds occurred on a Thursday “about September 15.” However, Thursday that week in 2008 was September 11. Was this just another coincidence? Is Kanjorski delusional? Then why hasn’t the Democratic leadership removed him as chairman of this important subcommittee? Or is he telling the truth? Can half a trillion dollars be withdrawn in two hours without collusion? Then why aren’t we demanding an investigation? Do we care? Or have we become sheep, waiting to be fleeced?

    Congressman Paul Kanjorski (D-PA) has been a fairly undistinguished member of the House of Representatives for nearly a quarter of a century. He is a career member of the Financial Services Committee who has made little or no name for himself since his first electoral victory, and has maintained incumbency through the funneling of pork back to his district. Even his Wikipedia entry says that Kanjorski "usually plays behind-the-scenes roles in the advocacy or defeat of legislation and steers appropriations money toward improving the infrastructure and economic needs of his district." “But [in] the temptation to want to win back...

    Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) questioned soon-to-be House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's, D-Calif., commitment to eradicating corruption with her endorsement of one of the most unethical members in Congress, Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., to be majority meader of the House of Representatives. Murtha was listed in CREW's report, "Beyond DeLay: The 20 Most Corrupt Members of Congress (and five to watch)." As reported in the study and by the news media, Murtha has been involved in a number of pay-to-play schemes involving former staffers and his brother, Robert "Kit" Murtha. Eight incumbents in CREW's report lost their races...
