And Joe Manchin of WV may have some issues of his own, in the form of new Grand Jury subpoenas.

MarkO

I remember little Billy Clinton scolding us and claiming he had to get back to the people's business. Harry was just too busy to pay attention to the small stuff.

Extraneus

But for Reid, we’d be in world-wide depression.

MarkO

Well, I'm depressed. Why not everyone else?

Melinda Romanoff

MarkO-

Get un-depressed..

Clarice

Pajamas Media says Boxer's in trouble too for failing ro list a million dollar home as an asset and never mentioning 7 countrywide mortgages.

bunkerbuster

That's gotta be the most impotent October surprise ever...

MarkO

Melinda to the rescue.

Melinda Romanoff

Spicoli wakes!

Army of Davids

Barbara Boxer...Chair of the Senate Ethics Committee may have ethics challenges of her own.

Danube of Thought

Then there's AG Conway in Kentucky tipping his brother to a drug investigation.

Danube of Thought

Minus 15 at Raz today.

hit and run

Libs http://www.nytimes.com/2010/10/24/us/politics/24cable.html>outrageously outraged that Republicans are given a fund raising platform on Fox News. MSNBC president says they don't do that on his channel:

Phil Griffin, the president of MSNBC, and others strenuously object to the idea that Fox and MSNBC are opposite sides of the same coin. “Show me an example of us fund-raising,” he said in a recent interview.

So Phil issues the challenge . . . and http://johnnydollar.us/files/101024challenge.php>Johnny Dollar accepts.

You won't be surprised by Johnny Dollar's findings,but maybe Phil will be.

The difference is no one watches Schultz, except Hoft and Newsbusters, so it's the 'tree falling in the forest' problem

Dave (in MA)

In a lame attempt at a local October Surprise, the Globe is http://www.boston.com/news/politics/articles/2010/10/26/treasurer_candidate_polito_has_the_edge_on_low_number_sox_plates/?page=1>going after Rep. Karyn Polito (R-Shrewsbury) because a lot of low-numbered Red Sox license plates went to her family, friends and supporters.

She filed a bill to have the Registry of Motor Vehicles issue a Red Sox plate with proceeds from a special surcharge going to the Jimmy Fund, but the Registry requires at least 1500 orders before they'll issue a special plate, so she asked her circle of family and friends for help. !!!Oh NOES!!!

Good move, attack a candidate for getting people to support an anti-cancer charity drive too early. That's a winner right there.
(The 'R' is not a typo. We actually have a few of those in MA.)

Steve

THANK YOU for posting this!

I really like your blog!!

Tom Bowler

Speaking of October surprises, take a look at this supposedly brutal head stomping by Rand Paul supporters and tell me if you think it wasn't staged. The victim, Lauren Valle, smirks almost as happily talking about it afterward as NPR CEO Vivian Schiller did when she said Juan Williams needed to keep his feelings between him and his psychiatrist.

I don't believe it's real.

maryrose

I agree Tom. This is to counteract the true fact that Conway covered for his brother twice by tipping him off that the police were on his trail for drug abuse.

Dave (in MA)
I don't believe it's real.
Either way, they should locate and prosecute the offender. If it was staged, even better.
Jim Ryan

Obama is coming here (Charlottesville) to try to save Perriello by GOTV amongst those Dem drones who "don't really follow politics." It will work because there are drones here who will now vote Tuesday because Zero is so cool and came visit them.

Robert Hurt is ahead a few points. This is going to be a nail biter of a cliff hanger.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

Via Instapundit:

SUSPICIONS OF FRAUD IN NEVADA: “Voter Joyce Ferrara said when they went to vote for Republican Sharron Angle, her Democratic opponent, Sen. Harry Reid’s name was already checked. Ferrara said she wasn’t alone in her voting experience. She said her husband and several others voting at the same time all had the same thing happen.”
maryrose

Jim Ryan:
Let's hope Obama proves to be his usual"Kiss Of Death " to the campaign of Perriello. Wasn't this race a cliffhanger, recount one in 2006?

NK

THIS is a big EFFIN DEAL if Reid had pals lean on the Feds not to indict his 'aide'. If this is just another Immigration scam, the scandal there is that we treat our immigration laws with such contempt that it's not a big deal.

Jim Ryan

Yes, maryrose, the Obama tide unseated the longstanding Cong Goode (R) in 2008. Now Perriello is coasting on incumbency.

Janet the tea-vangelist!

Totally agree NK.

Frau Skandal

Having Baba Boxer on the Select Committee on Ethics is rich, she the Queen of Senate the House Banking Scandal.

Frau Skandal

Arghhhh... Queen of the House banking scandal. Who knows, she may have already worked on something in the Senate.

Rob Crawford

Bubu's the resident expert on impotence, so we should listen to him on the Reid story.

daddy

Steve,

Tell you what. I am glad you really like our Blog as you've told us before, but after posting the exact same phrase 300 'effing times, do you think you could either shut up or change your robot's verbiage?

glenda

daddy...

how are things in your backyard? Have the un-enlightened come back from the dark side (Murkowhatever)?

Melinda Romanoff

Big Gov't drops another one in.

O'Keefe has tapes of a union official talking about voter fraud.

Pretty damning stuff.

Pagar

"Either way, they should locate and prosecute the offender. "

Over at Legal Insurrection, William Jacobsen has a good followup on the Gulf of Paducah incident.

"Indeed, the mainstream media has refused even to report about how Congressman Maurice Hinchey recently assaulted a reporter who was asking questions about Hinchey's possible conflicts of interest."

rse

Apparently Sandra Day O'Connor is making robocalls in support of some Nevada ballot initiative on how they pick judges.

Plus she was the deciding vote today on the 9th Circuit throwing out Arizona's voter ID law.

Apparently the perjury penalties are deemed sufficient protection.

Paul volunteer ordered to court for scuffle

The volunteer with Rand Paul's Republican U.S. Senate campaign who stepped on the head of a liberal activist and pinned her face to the concrete said Tuesday the scuffle was not as bad as it looked on video and blamed police for not intervening.

"I'm sorry that it came to that, and I apologize if it appeared overly forceful, but I was concerned about Rand's safety," Tim Profitt told The Associated Press.

A judge will decide whether Profitt should face criminal charges.

HT Althouse.

The Paul campaign banned the volunteer from future events and a judge will determine whether to proceed with charges.
