George LeMieux Takes Disgusting to a Whole New Level in Campaign E-Mail Bashing Connie Mack, Tea Party and Hooters

Soon to be ex- U. S.  Senator George LeMieux recently sent out a campaign email letter that shows everyone just why Mr. LeMieux will not stand a snowball’s chance in you-know-where of winning the Florida U.S. Senate seat in the 2012 elections.

He not only disgustingly piles on unwarranted personal attacks on Rep. Connie Mack in this nasty campaign letter, but also trashes Hooters restaurants and  grassroots Tea Party voters at the same time – whose support he will undoubtedly need to win the election.

First, let’s put the email out here for all to see, so Floridians can see for themselves just what a low-life Charlie Crist appointed, power-hungry piece of misguided elitist trash Mr. LeMieux turns out to be… in his own words. Of course, while these types of low life personal attack dogs are usually found in the fake democratic party of today, Mr. LeMieux shows he is not above taking pages out of the Democratic Attack Machine’s political playbook. He even uses a Liberal attack dog’s written words instead of his own to somehow try to hide behind the political activist at The Miami Herald, Frank Cerabino, who is  posing as a journalist. From the Elect George  LeMieux homepage:

Cerabino: Underachiever Connie Mack IV perfect for Senate seat. (emphasis mine)

To: U.S. Rep. Connie Mack IV

From: Cerabino Image Makeover ­Specialists Inc.

Subject: Tidying up your résumé

First of all, congratulations, Mr. Mack. You haven’t even officially declared yet to run for a Florida seat in the U.S. Senate and you’re already the front-runner in the polls. This is great news.

We here at CIMS can’t wait for the big announcement, because we feel that you embody everything that Floridians have come to expect as our representative in the highest legislative body in the land.

This is why we have volunteered our services to help you address some questions that might arise when nosy nellies start poking into your background.

It’s best to figure out good answers in advance.

So we have taken the liberty of fashioning responses that ought to appeal to the Republican base you have already dazzled.

Issue No. 1: Work experience.

Problem: Before trading on the name of your father (a U.S. senator) to begin your current career as a full-time servant of the people in 2001, the most meaningful employment you had was as a “special events coordinator” for a bunch of Hooters restaurants. Boiled down to its essence: You were the go-to guy for folks who wanted to have scantily clad waitresses appear at their events.

Solution: You will be effective in a Democratic-controlled Senate, because you already know what it’s like being surrounded by a bunch of boobs.

Issue No. 2: Education.

Problem: Despite being a legislator with a stated passion for education, you needed 6½ years to get an undergraduate degree in advertising, which you accomplished three months shy of your 26th birthday.

Solution: You’re not one of those educational “elites.” This will give you significant inroads with the tea party voters, who believe Ivy League educations and law-review honors are flaws.

Issue No. 3: Lawsuit trouble.

Problem: You once sued Ron Gant, an outfielder for the Atlanta Braves, for beating you up in a barroom fight.

Solution: It was not a frivolous lawsuit. The jury awarded you monetary damages.

So let’s try to set Mr. LeMieux’s intended message straight here shall we?

 Issue 1 –LeMieux and Cerbino trash Florida’s Hooters restaurant chain, because Rep.Connie Mack once worked for Hooters restaurants . Hooters restaurants are world famous for chicken wings, tailgate parties and a general all around place for friends to get together for good times and great food. HOA Restaurant Group, LLC is the Atlanta-based operator and franchiser of over 455 Hooters locations in 44 states in the US, Argentina, Aruba, Austria, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Columbia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, England, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Korea, Mexico, Paraguay, Panama, Peru, Philippines, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan and the Virgin Islands. The privately held corporation owns 160 units.

And in case Mr. LeMieux and his Liberal attack dog Mr. Cerabino are unaware of the facts about Florida’s much beloved Hooters restaurants, the very first Hooters restaurant was founded in Clearwater, Florida. And yes they have beautiful girls working there, as is the case of probably 99% of American restaurants in business today. So Rep. Connie Mack worked for Hooters over 20 years ago. Why is Hooters being trashed in an attack-ad posing as an op-ed in a Florida newspaper, by a U.S. Senator who is currently begging to remain in that appointed seat that was given to him by the biggest flake Florida has ever had the disgrace to call it’s Governor, Republican, turned Democrat turned Independent, Charlie Crist? Let’s hope every Floridian reading this takes the time to tell Mr. LeMieux and Mr. Cerbino just what they think of their bashing Florida’s very own Hooters restaurants.

 

 

Issue 2- Education- LeMieux and Cerabino tell us Rep. Mack took (gasp!) 6 ½ years to finish college! Then they use that statement to refer to Tea Party voters across America as some kind of uneducated neanderthals: “ You’re not one of those educational “elites.” This will give you significant inroads with the tea party voters, who believe Ivy League educations and law-review honors are flaws.”     Well considering the blatant ignorance concerning the rule of law that is being shown by Harvard law professor extraordinaire Barack Obama today, I suppose many people just might view a Harvard law degree as an award of ignorance instead of a degree in higher learning. When Harvard and other elitist Ivy league schools start actually start putting out real lawyers instead of Liberal politicians posing as law professors, we just might start taking a Harvard law degree seriously. Until then, it will remain nothing more than the joke of a law professor named Barack Hussein Obama. Clear enough? Tea Partiers do believe in higher education, one that actually translates into a career in the private sector workforce, not one that creates nothing more than fake liberal lawyers to be injected into our political system under the guise of being “scholarly.”

Issue 3 – Lawsuit (gasp!) trouble: Rep. Connie Mack got into a bar fight decades ago in which he was awarded damages. (so says Mr. Cerabino and Senator LeMieux)) An article from augusta.com reveals that, after eight hours of deliberations over two days, the jury found that Gant, who still lives in the Atlanta area, started the fight but was not responsible for injuries to Mack. And this tidbit of fact: – “A Cobb County State Court jury on Friday decided not to award any damages in a civil suit involving former Atlanta Braves outfielder Ron Gant.

The jury ruled that each side would have to pay its own attorneys’ fees.  Retract your lies Mr. Cerabino, and Mr. LeMieux owes Rep. Mack a public apology immediately.

Rep. Connie Mack jumped into the lead in all major polls before he even formally announced that he would be running for the Republican primary to take on the big Liberal debt-spender and current U.S. Senator Bill Nelson for his U. S. Senate seat in 2012. And then we see this nasty piece of slander put out by George LeMieux while hiding behind the journalistic skirt of the libelous liberal Mr. Cerabino, he of the far left rag known today as the Miami Herald. Shame on both of you!

2012 just can’t get here fast enough!

 

Florida Vote Fraud Will Not be Tolerated in 2012.

The State of Florida has new voting laws in place this year, and a few people have already been caught violating them a year before the 2012 elections. Apparently certain parts of our society down here in Florida are incapable of reading and understanding the new laws,( including a teacher) which are laid out in easy-to-read detail here.  One other question we might ask, is that if a person can not read the above-linked voting law, how in the world can they ever research the candidates and actually know whom to vote for today? When people have to be herded to register to vote like blind sheep, what does that say about their ability to cast informed and educated votes?  This is how unqualified politicians end up getting elected over other, sometimes better candidates, in our electoral system today. Uninformed voters are being manipulated by misinformation and soundbites on TV instead of actually voting for the candidate that will serve their constituents the best. The false rhetoric being spread about Florida’s new voter law suppressing certain groups of voters is a perfect example of voters being manipulated by misinformation.  This is also how we get career politicians that constantly trample our constitutional rights and the rule of law while being reelected over and over.  Senator Bill Nelson is one of those types of politicians, and  Connie Mack is going to see about changing that situation in the Florida U.S. Senate race in 2012.

Much to the dismay of the media and certain political operatives down here in Florida, the new voting laws do not in fact, suppress anyone’s opportunity to vote, as Senator Bill Nelson (D-Fl) is contending. The new laws were created to eliminate Acorn-style vote fraud and nothing more. The law changes the rules for voter registrations in that people who want to register hundreds or thousands of new voters,( such as this teacher does) must register with the supervisor of elections beforehand, and update them on their activities on a daily basis. This will prevent people from registering 10,000 new voters and holding them until the last minute, which in turn floods the system to the point where the state election employees can not make sure all of the newly registered voters are legit.  One teacher did just that in a previous Florida election, and held voter registrations some 6 months in a locker before turning them in. That practice will no longer be tolerated here in Florida.

The media here in Florida are also shamelessly giving Democrats a huge voice in falsely claiming that this new law will somehow suppress certain voter’s rights. The Democrats, being led by Sen. Nelson, even want the Department of Justice to interfere with the new voting laws. Florida and national Democrats are using the usual plethora of supposed victims in Seniors, youth and now even saying that the law somehow discriminates against the gay community! When people do a Google search on the new Florida voting law right now, they are inundated with false claims that the new law will somehow suppress voters of certain groups in a whopping 49 of the top 50 pages that come up in your browser window. Tell me that isn’t being manipulated there. Common sense lets folks read the above-linked law and see that bunch of bunk as the propaganda campaign by Democrats that it truly represents.

Of course the 99% Liberal media machines here in Florida now want to paint the supposed teacher who broke the new election laws as a victim of some grand Republican vote-suppressing conspiracy. The only thing she is a victim of here, is her own stupidity in not researching the new law before signing up school students to vote. This also explains how Obama captured a huge portion of the youth vote in 2008.  Dem-activist teachers have been filling their student’s heads with misinformation while corralling them to vote, such as this teacher has been doing when whining about the new voting laws in Florida. According to Democrats and their media puppets here in Florida, there was/is no proof of widespread vote fraud in Florida, and therefore no need for any laws to prevent it. Oh really?

The 2008 election year alone proves otherwise, and CDN believes in publishing the facts, not repeating the D.A.M. talking points loaded with misinformation and flat out lies. At ballotpedia we see the harsh reality of the need to protect the integrity of Florida’s voting system in the number of proven voter fraud cases in 2008 alone:  Pay attention folks, as you will not see this information being published by The St. Pete Times, Tampa Tribune or any other mainly Liberal-controlled media puppet organizations down here in Florida:

Nov 02, 2008 2000 people found in one Indiana county also in Florida in which The Journal Gazette compared the list of 222,000 active registered voters in Allen County with the list of more than 12 million registered voters in Florida and found that 2,172 registrations have the same first and last names, middle names or initials and the same birth dates and are listed as active, eligible voters in both places

Nov 01, 2008  Mentally-handicapped citizens illegally registered to vote in Florida in which In South Florida, a Collier woman states that her two mentally handicapped adult children have been registered to vote in an illegal act. Since her children (Michael, 19, and Jennifer, 32) are not able to read and write, or even tell you where they live, they did not register to vote by themselves, nor would they be competent to vote. Both of Griselle Gonzalez’ children live in the same adult group home in Broward County. According to a spokesman for the group home, the home registers its residents, however most of them will not vote. For those who require authorization from a guardian, written consent is obtained before registration can occur. Griselle Gonzales is the guardian of both of her children and denies ever giving authorization. She said “I don’t think they should be allowed to vote. I mean, especially not because I don’t want them to have the right to be a citizen, but because I don’t want somebody to chose for them.”

Oct 31, 2008 More dead people voting in Florida in which we see Chanel Nine News discovered 1,636 registered voters in Central Florida are dead. Although most of these people never show up to vote, a few of them did in the 2006 election. Marjorie Branch died in 2004, yet voted in the 2006 election.

Oct 29, 2008 Florida rolls contain dead people, felons, duplicates: With balloting well under way in the 2008 general election, the Sun Sentinel found more than 65,000 ineligible and duplicate voters on Florida’s registration rolls. These included at least 600 dead people, 32,000 voters registered more than once and more than 33,000 convicted felons who by law, should not be allowed to cast ballots.

And just this week, the FBI arrested 8 people in Florida for absentee ballot fraud as RedState.com reported here.

Looking at all of the above evidence, I believe it is safe to state that any politicians/political activists/media puppets in Florida that say we do not have a vote fraud problem ( in order to bash the new vote law) are simply spreading misinformation, or in denial of reality, take your pick.

The new Florida voting laws that are in effect as of September, 2011 are not hidden or inaccessible as many claim they are, and can be accessed right here for all to read:  New 2011 Florida Voting Laws. They are NOT as many people are claiming, designed to suppress certain voting groups.  Read the law.

Again, the new Florida voting law is in fact, designed to cut out Acorn-style voter fraud which has been proven to have corrupted our electoral process throughout America,  that resulting in the Acorn group being defunded by the United States Congress in late 2009. At the core of a true Democracy is the integrity of our electoral system, and this law takes the necessary steps to protect our right to hold fair elections. The only people objecting to the new Florida voting laws are simply the ones whom have gotten elected using illegal practices and shady get out the vote –  voter registration drives to get into or remain in office.  Instead of supporting a law designed to prevent the rampant vote fraud witnessed above that happened in Florida in 2008, they in fact want the DOJ to nullify the law. That right there should tell Floridians all they need to know about  how desperate Democrats are proving to be as we head into the 2012 elections.  Senator Bill Nelson can be seen in the above-linked article repeating the lie that the new law will somehow suppress certain groups of voters no less than 10 times without ever explaining just how he comes to that conclusion. No proof to back it up, just empty rhetoric and misinformation that flies in the face of the truth about the new voter laws in Florida:  They are  designed to prevent the rampant 2008 Acorn-style vote fraud, and protect the integrity of our electoral system, and nothing more.

 

Footnote: A 3 Judge federal court panel refused to speed up rendering a decision that involves the necessary preclearance needed for 4 disputed parts of the new law, yet the judges agreed the case should be expedited, just not as fast as the state had proposed. That decision means those sections at issue will not apply for the primary in five Tampa Bay-area and southwest Florida counties that are covered by the preclearance requirement. They are Collier, Hardee, Hendry, Hillsborough and Monroe.

Regardless of the rhetoric, Floridians still have until the new Jan. 31st GOP Primary election date to register and get ready to vote. Then we have a complete year to comply with the new law and register to vote.  If you are not competent enough to get registered to vote properly in the time-frame of a full year, maybe you shouldn’t be voting at all.  Get registered to vote ahead of time, make any changes in address or your political party today, and all of these falsehoods being told by Bill Nelson and the media puppets down here in Florida about the new Florida elections law are proven to be a bunch of bunk,  period. You can make those changes right from home  here.  It is easy to register yourself to vote in Florida and/or change your voter information. Florida voters, especially high school students, do not need political activist teachers to register them to vote.  Students?  The next time a teacher in Florida tries to register you to vote, tell them you are fully capable of  doing it yourself.  After all, it is your gerneration who will be straddled with the massive amounts of debt these politicians have heaped upon you for the past two decades. Right now as it stands, future generations of Americans now owe $15 trillion dollars of debt.  Become more than just a puppet-voter doing what a teacher or other political activist tells you, and become an informed voter while you still have the chance.  It is your future and freedom from a too big, too powerful government that hangs in the balance here.

2012 just can’t get here fast enough!

Rep. Connie Mack Shakes Up 2012 U.S Senate Race in Florida

It is now official: U.S. Congressman Connie Mack has entered the 2012 U.S Senate race to challenge incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson in Florida. Long-time heavily entrenched Democrat Nelson was leading by a wide margin in recent polling against what many considered to be a weak field of inexperienced Republicans with little to no name recognition up until this point, which currently includes Army Col. Mike McCalister, former state Rep. Adam Hasner, former Ruth’s Chris Steak House CEO Craig Miller and former Sen. George LeMieux.

Connie Mack has both name recognition and a wealth of experience serving in the Florida House of Representatives from 2000 – 2003 before being elected to the U.S. Congress in 2004. His father was also a former U.S. Senator. Mack is also a solid conservative who has has worked to support the free market system and reduce the size and scope of the federal government’s interference with our personal freedoms. Mack believes that the private sector, and not the government, creates new jobs, and he has been a vocal opponent of the countless financial sector bailouts, the failed stimulus plan and the Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac takeover. He has also been very vocal in calling for the repeal of Obama-care.

While Mack has the experience of a total of eleven years of being an elected official, he also carries the air of a true conservative fighting against the big government agenda of Senator Bill Nelson’s Liberal Democratic party. It will be very interesting to see how Floridians feel towards Rep. Mack’s U.S. Senate bid in the upcoming polls. The most recent Shark Tank Senate Republican Primary poll shows Adam Hasner leading with over 51%, Col Mike McCalister in second at 26.5% and current Senator George LeMieux at 15.8%.

Currently, Adam Hasner appears to have had the most support from the Republican party in Florida, even though Senator John McCain threw his early support behind the Charlie Crist re-make in George LeMieuz whom Crist appointed when he was Governor. Fill-in Senator LeMieux is fading and will not be a real contender in this primary. Connie Mack’s emergence will surely take some support from Hasner, while also cutting Col. Mike McCalister’s chances for election dramatically.

 Rep. Mack has a lifetime American Conservative Union rating of 93.3 percent and has been a prominent advocate for cutting federal spending. Mack spoke out against Arizona’s immigration law in 2010 which could prove problematic to many conservative Republican voters in Florida. In 2009, Mack also joined the misguided GOP establishment in supporting the Republican-turned-Independent-turned-Liberal Charlie Crist’s bid against eventual winner Marco Rubio in the 2010 U.S. Senate election.

Big Government Liberal Bill Nelson already has about $8 million dollars in his war chest for reelection, due in large part to his longtime connections with DC lobbyists and crony-capitalists that are at the very root of today’s massive national debt of $15 trillion dollars. Connie Mack’s conservative credentials should allow him to quickly raise enough cash to put up a stiff challenge for Bill Nelson’s current U.S. Senate seat in the upcoming elections, and as we saw in the 2010 mid-term elections, the candidate with the most money doesn’t guarantee them a win here in Florida. Should Mack defeat front-running Hasner in the primaries, then the 2012 Florida U.S. Senate race will simply come down to a choice of two candidates: Incumbent Senator Bill Nelson’s record of big government Liberal debt-spending vs. the solidly conservative Connie Mack’s message of a limited government that allows the free market system to enhance American freedom and prosperity for all.
