  • U.S. "Friends" Like Wexler, Obama Play Israel for the Fool

    Former US congressman Robert Wexler is a man worth listening to. Wexler served as then-senator Barack Obama’s chief booster in the American Jewish community during the 2008 presidential campaign. He appeared everywhere and said anything to convince the American Jewish community that the same man who sat in the church pews listening to Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s anti-Semitic vitriol for two decades, and listed among his closest friends and associates a host of Israel-haters as well as former terrorists, was the greatest friend Israel could ever have. Once Obama was elected, Wexler continued to serve as his Jewish shill. Wexler traveled...

    SNIPPET: "BOCA RATON, Fla., April 13 (UPI) -- Voters elected Democrat Ted Deutch Tuesday to fill out the term of retired U.S. Rep. Robert Wexler, D-Fla., election returns indicated. Deutch, who campaigned as a supporter of healthcare reform legislation and of President Barack Obama, easily defeated Republican Ed Lynch and an unaffiliated candidate. Lynch conceded before 10 p.m. before all precincts reported, The Palm Beach Post reported."

    Florida state Sen. Ted Deutch (D) has won the special election to replace former Rep. Robert Wexler (D-Fla.). Deutch had about 61 percent of the vote with more than half of precincts reporting, while Republican contractor Ed Lynch was taking about 36 percent of the vote. The race has been called by AP. Deutch was the heavy favorite heading into Tuesday night in a strongly Democratic district. Republicans didn't do much to contest the race. Wexler resigned in late 2009 to head up a Middle East think tank.

    As of now, 10:15 PM DST, polls are closed for more than three hours in Florida where voters had voted to fill a vacant seat of a long-serving retiring Democrat Congressman in District 14. But apparently, both sides slept deep: as of the current count, less than 14,000 people voted in Broward County, a Democratic strong-hold which is one of the two Counties of the 19’Th district. The Democrat has now in total 7,342 votes, vs. 5,837 for the Republican. We still need to get results from Palm Beach County, and the final results for the night too. I get...

  • It’s election day in congressional District 19

    Voters in congressional District 19 today will choose a replacement for U.S. Rep. Robert Wexler, the Democrat who stepped down in January to head a Middle East think tank. Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The district has more than twice as many Democrats as Republicans and voted 65 percent for Barack Obama in 2008. That makes Ted Deutch, a state Senator from Boca Raton, the heavy favorite. But Republican Ed Lynch hopes to ride voter dislike for the new Democratic health care law to an upset victory. And independent candidate Jim McCormick hopes enough voters are...

    Dick Morris has endorsed Ed Lynch on Sean Hannity’s tv show because he knows this election is the first national referendum on Obamacare. Tuesday can be just another day or a great celebration because we have beaten a Marxist Democrat in the old seat of former Congressman Robert Wexler, a very Marxist Democrat. How Tuesday turns out is up to us; the half of America that actually gets it and wants to save our nation. On Tuesday April 13 there will be a special election in the 19th Congressional District of Florida. Our candidate is Ed Lynch a young strong...

    American Daily Review ^ | 02/04/10 | Yomin Postelnik
    Ed Lynch isn’t just a Republican candidate with the only upcoming special election in the nation. Ed Lynch is as a man whose personal example embodies the very best of the Republican Party. Lynch is no ordinary candidate. After all, what candidate, two weeks before a primary vote, decides to leave his district in favor of leading a rescue mission in Haiti? But that episode, more than any other, demonstrates what Ed Lynch is all about. His choice to save lives rather than campaign is emblematic of Lynch’s life history. As a general contractor, Lynch won a construction bid to...
  • Pelosi Has 218 Votes Only Through February

    IBD's Capital Hill ^ | 1/25/2010 | David Hogberg
    Beginning March 1, Speaker Nancy Pelosi may fall below the 218 votes she needs to pass health care reform. The House health bill got 220 votes. But Rep. Robert Wexler, D-Fla., has retired. Joseph Cao, R-La., the lone Republican voting “yes”, says he won’t support the final package. And on Feb. 28, Rep. Neal Abercrombie, D-Hawaii, retires to focus on running for governor. That brings Pelosi to 217, assuming there are no other changes. The soonest Pelosi would be back up to 218 would be April 14, one day after the special election to fill Wexler’s seat.

    An honest headline would read, “Lynch in a walkover: TKO’s Wexler.” In boxing terms conservative Republican Ed Lynch has scored a TKO walkover victory against soon to be former Congressman Robert Wexler (D) Fla 19th CD. Lynch’s courage and tenacity convinced the FBI to investigate Wexler for multiple violations of federal laws and finally forced Wexler to slither away rather than have investigators prove he doesn’t live in Florida let alone his district. Lynch’s campaign commented that, “For all practical purposes, Wexler quit representing his constituents and stopped carrying out the real responsibilities of a Congressman long before his resignation…...

Wexler said today he will step down in January to become the executive director of the Center for Middle East Peace and Economic Cooperation, a Washington-based non-profit that describes itself as advocating for "the peace that Israelis and Arabs seek."

    TALLAHASSEE, FL -- Gov. Charlie Crist isn't declaring a state of emergency over the use of Chinese drywall in Florida just yet, but he is asking for federal help to study the controversial building material. The drywall, imported from China during the building boom of 2002 to 2006, has been blamed for foul odors, corroded copper pipes and wires, and respiratory problems. On Thursday, U.S. Rep. Robert Wexler, D- Boca Raton, asked Crist to make the emergency declaration for Florida, where thousands of homes may have been impacted by the material, so residents could get funds from the Federal Emergency...

All the reports removed the firm Newbridge Securities as the corporation from which funds were received to one of several other companies including; West Park Capital, Inc., Capital Gains Consultants, Inc., Catamount Capital Management, and Capital Gains Real Estate Consultants, Inc. among others. Several of these companies had been out of business when the reports listed that the stated funds had been paid. On July 25th, 2008, two days after Wexler’s Congressional Committee began...

    .....“I never thought I’d have to say this to an audience, but please behave,’’ moderate Elissa Harvey implored while the audience at the Coral Springs Center for The Arts blistered U.S. Rep. Robert Wexler, D-Boca Raton. Wexler had the audacity to blame years of Republican deregulation for today’s economic woes, something that didn’t play with this audience. Wexler was joined on stage by Republican Challenger Ed Lynch and Independent Ben Graber, who are seeking his 19th Congressional District seat. Lynch and Graber took turns ripping Wexler for what they called a “culture of corruption’’ in Washington, D.C. during Wexler’s 12-year...

    Former state representative and Broward county commissioner Ben Graber is blasting U.S. Rep. Robert Wexler, D-Boca Raton, as an "embarrassment to Jews.'' Graber , son of Holocaust survivors, is challenging Wexler in congressional District 19, and is running as an independent candidate. He took issue with Wexler for dissing Sen. John McCain's vice presidential pick, Sarah Palin, the governor of Alaska. According to Graber: "Wexler immediately condemned her as a supporter of a Nazi sympathizer because she wore a Pat Buchanan button ... when he visited her town.'' Graber said Wexler's "behavior'' is "not only embarrassing to the Jews, but...

"John McCain's decision to select a vice presidential running mate that endorsed Pat Buchanan for president in 2000 is a direct affront to all Jewish Americans," said a statement by Wexler.
