    The mayor of a southeastern Ohio town has resigned over accusations that she repeatedly called a gay police officer “queer” in front of his colleagues and created a hostile work environment. Jackie Welker, council president in the Village of Pomeroy, tells The Associated Press that 78-year-old Mayor Mary McAngus submitted a letter of resignation Saturday. …

    Desperate to defend his out-of-touch Washington to voters in North Dakota, incumbent Democrat Earl Pomeroy has taken up a misinformation campaign in an attempt to salvage his prospects for reelection.  But the people of North Dakota aren’t easy to fool.  While Pomeroy has been spinning his party-line votes for the Obama/Pelosi agenda, which include trillions in new and spending and increasing the debt limit to record and unsustainable highs, his constituents have had to live with the consequences of his actions.  In one example that shows Pomeroy doesn’t represent the values of North Dakota any more, it turns out that...

    With less than two weeks until Election Day, Republican challenger Rick Berg has moved to a 10-point lead over longtime Democratic Congressman Earl Pomeroy in the race for North Dakota’s only seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in North Dakota shows Berg with 52% support. Pomeroy, a member of the House since 1993, picks up 42% support. One percent (1%) favor some other candidate in the race, and five percent (5%) are undecided.

    Dem Rep. Earl Pomeroy, who voted with Pelosi 97% of the time, is now running a pro-Bush ad in North Dakota. We’ve seen plenty of Democrats in tight races trying to distance themselves from President Obama. But one Democrat, North Dakota’s Rep. Earl Pomeroy, is taking this a step farther by actually embracing President George W. Bush. Pomeroy is locked in what’s shaping up to be the toughest contest of his 17-year House career. He faces GOP state Rep. Rick Berg…

    We’ve seen plenty of Democrats in tight races trying to distance themselves from President Obama. But one Democrat, North Dakota's Rep. Earl Pomeroy, is taking this a step farther by actually embracing President George W. Bush. Pomeroy is locked in what’s shaping up to be the toughest contest of his 17-year House career. He faces GOP state Rep. Rick Berg. In one his first ads this cycle, Pomeroy highlighted his vote against cap-and-trade. "No. I told the president and Congressional leaders no, on cap-and-trade legislation which would raise our electric rates and cost us energy jobs,” says Pomeroy in the...

    Grand Forks Herald ^ | 15 September 2010 | Ryan Johnson
    A Democratic committee’s decision to pull advertising money it planned to spend in North Dakota has state Republicans claiming Rep. Earl Pomeroy was “cut loose” after months of running behind Republican challenger Rick Berg in the polls. But that’s “absolutely not” the case, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee spokeswoman Jennifer Crider said, and the group remains committed to help Pomeroy as he vies for a 10th term in the U.S. House.

    National Legal & Policy Center ^ | August 27, 2010 | Carl Horowitz
      Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation, like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, is a case of "too big to fail." At least a number of members of Congress see it that way. And they are planning a push for legislation designed to shore up underfunded multiemployer private-sector pension funds whose result could put taxpayers on the hook for billions, if not tens of billions, of dollars. Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pa., and Reps. Earl Pomeroy, D-N.D., and Pat Tiberi, R-Ohio, the driving forces behind this measure, seek to shift the primary responsibility of keeping pensions adequately funded from unions and unionized...
  • Bobby Bailout: Casey to Put Taxpayers on Hook for Teamsters’ Shenanigans

    Sen. Robert Casey (D., Pa.) and Rep. Earl Pomeroy (D., N.D.) are pushing legislation that would commit taxpayers’ dollars to bailing out the Teamsters’ retirement pension fund. The financial crisis and the Great Recession may have upset your retirement plans, but that’s not reason that politically connected union thugs have to share the pain. Here’s the deal, as former Department of Labor official Vincent Vernuccio, now an analyst at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, tells Exchequer: Under the Democrats’ plan, the U.S. Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp., which is basically a pension-insurance fund run by the federal government, would be able to...

    Republican Rick Berg has moved past the 50% mark in support against incumbent Democratic Congressman Earl Pomeroy in North Dakota’s race for U.S. House of Representatives. The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Berg picking up 52% support to Pomeroy’s 43%. Only two percent (2%) would vote for some other candidate, and three percent (3%) are undecided. While the new results are similar to those found March just after Pomeroy's vote for the national health care bill, the race was much closer last month, when Berg held a slim 49% to 45% edge. In February, Berg...

    North and South Dakota will make an interesting case study for those pundits who insist that Democrats who voted for ObamaCare will fare better at the polls. The at-large representative in North Dakota is Democrat Earl Pomeroy, who voted for both health care bills. The latest Rasmussen poll has him trailing state legislator Rick Berg, 51%-44%. Pomeroy appears to have been in trouble since he voted for ObamaCare last November.

    Democratic Congressman Earl Pomeroy’s vote Sunday for President Obama’s national health care plan seems to have had little impact so far on North Dakota’s U.S. House race. A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely voters in the state, taken Tuesday night, shows Republican Rick Berg leading Pomeroy by seven points, 51% to 44%. Just one percent (1%) prefer some other candidate in the race, and four percent (4%) are undecided. Last month, in Rasmussen Reports’ first Election 2010 survey of the race, Berg led Pomeroy by six, 46% to 40%. Incumbents who earn less than 50% of the vote...

    The Vote: Conned by the promise of an ephemeral executive order, the last holdouts cave and ObamaCare advances. It doesn't add a single doctor or hospital room, but needs 17,000 new IRS agents to enforce it. Congressman Bart Stupak, D-Mich., spent months spelling out in minute detail how the Senate version of the health care overhaul permitted federal funding of abortion through its failure to expressly prohibit it. In the end, he cashed in his principles for an unenforceable executive order that is trumped by the Senate bill he voted to pass. An executive order is not the law of...

    Longtime state Rep. Rick Berg (R) will be North Dakota Republican's standard bearer in the race against Rep. Earl Pomeroy (D-N.D.). The state party endorsed Berg over Kevin Cramer, chairman of the North Dakota Public Service Commission, and two other GOP contenders at its convention in Grand Forks, N.D. on Saturday afternoon. Cramer, Berg's main rival for the nomination, has already said he would not run in the primary if he did not win the party endorsement. Berg, the former state House Majority Leader, led Pomeroy in Rasmussen Reports poll conducted in early February, which may have helped him convince...

    WASHINGTON — Bye bye, Cornhusker Kickback. Hello, special treatment for Tennessee and North Dakota. Democrats unveiling revisions Thursday to their health care overhaul bill decided to kill the extra $100 million in Medicaid funds for Nebraska that has become a symbol of backdoor deal making. But the 153 pages of changes to the massive health care package include extra money for hospitals in Tennessee that serve large numbers of low-income patients. And though the bill would revamp the nation’s student loan system to make the government the only lender, one bank — the state-owned Bank of North Dakota — would...

    The Hill ^ | 1/8/10 | Ben Geman
    Rep. Earl Pomeroy (D-N.D.) is floating legislation to block what he calls “boneheaded” EPA proposals to regulate greenhouse gas emissions under its current Clean Air Act powers. Pomeroy said his plan is aimed at shielding North Dakota residents from electricity rate hikes and protecting coal-related jobs in the state. The bill joins several GOP efforts to block the agency’s planned emissions rules. Pomeroy, who is in his ninth term, introduced the bill in mid-December but touted the measure in a Friday press release. It comes at an unsettled time politically in the conservative state following Sen. Byron Dorgan’s (D-N.D.) surprise...

    If you needed more confirmation that entrenched, nine-term incumbent Earl Pomeroy is in a lot of trouble in the upcoming election year (after ignoring his constituents and casting a vote for an unpopular health care bill this last year, among other things) I have the line on some private polling that shows Pomeroy floundering even against an unnamed opponent. I can’t name the source of this poll, so I know you’ll all take it with a grain of salt, but right now Rep. Pomeroy is losing 50 - 42 to “other” in the polling I saw.

The new 30-second spots hit Democratic Reps. Earl Pomeroy of North Dakota, Vic Snyder of Arkansas and John M. Spratt Jr. of South Carolina for their votes by using the words of fellow Democratic legislators who opposed the legislation. Among the statements the NRCC uses in it' new ad against Pomeroy is one released by the office of Rep. Dan Boren, D-Okla., when he announced he...

    The DUmmies are going rabid, foaming at the mouth, over the Blue Dog Democrats spoiling their precious "public option"! And they lump Pelosi and even Obama in with the Blue Dogs! The DUmmies are all upset because the Pelosi Obamacare bill is not QUITE as full-blown socialist as they would like--even though it would go WAY far to the left. And the dreaded Blue Dogs? Many of them have turned out to be nothing more than Nancy's neutered puppies. They have rolled over and played dead. Take, for example, erstwhile "Blue Dog" Rep. Earl Pomeroy (D-ND). He has finally...

The Democratic congressman was approached by a group called Grassroots America last week as he was walking the streets of Washington, D.C. As he talked on a mobile phone, two women approached him and asked him about impeaching Bush, giving statistics of people who approve of the idea. As a camera rolled, Pomeroy is shown to be clearly agitated by their questions. “Most of the people I represent think that’s (impeachment) a horrible idea. I’m...

    Congressman Earl Pomeroy says Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean overstepped his bounds with recent comments about the war in Iraq. Dean earlier this week likened Iraq to Vietnam and said, "The idea that the United States is going to win the war in Iraq is just plain wrong." Pomeroy says Dean wasn't representing Democrats like him when he discussed the war. He says Dean should focus on the nuts and bolts of winning elections. Dean later said his assertion that the U.S. can't win the war was reported "a little out of context" -- and that Democrats believe a new...
