What Others Are Saying About Minnick’s Attack Ads & Possible Motives Behind Them (Video)

with one comment

By Bill Hurst, Does Walt Minnick, posing as a conservative, with the front man John Foster, want to “foster” bigotry; or are the attach ads to give Minnick a place to hide his airbrushed version of his past and his Congressional voting record ?

In previous articles I have demonstrated flaws in Minick’s version of his real past and voting history during his tenure in Congress. He has conveniently manipulated the truth about both of these seemingly controversial subjects in his authentic life history and his first term in Congress, representing Idaho’s 1st Congressional District.  This article attempts to reveal a few of his “airbrushed” versions of himself and the more exact account, which is not widely known by both political parties and chiefly by the constituency that he represents; Read Here: Will The Real Walt Minnick Stand Up!(Click Here for Full Story)

The Walt Minnick You Don’t Know

In the glossy version, Walt worked in the Nixon White House on drug policy and he did—with a budget that, under his watch, ballooned to over 13 times what it was when he began. But even though he requested and received a letter from the Watergate Special Prosecutor confirming he was never a target of the investigation, multiple sources place Minnick, at least temporarily, in the Special Investigations Unit. Known as the “Plumbers,” this brainchild of Nixon was tasked with preventing leaks of classified information and carrying out covert operations against his political enemies. Led by Minnick’s boss, Egil Krogh, who would eventually plead guilty and spend time in prison, the Plumbers were the nucleus of illegal activity that would ultimately lead to the downfall of the administration.
In the postcard version, Walt “resigned in protest” after the Saturday Night Massacre (when Nixon fired Watergate special prosecutor Archibald Cox). It’s not clear when Minnick actually decided to resign, let alone whether he “resigned in protest,” but if he was protesting, it wasn’t very loudly. He stuck around for at least three months after that October Saturday of 1973. The truth doesn’t fit as nicely on an airbrushed postcard but to understand Walt Minnick’s grainy past you have to start at the beginning.

Washington Post:

It isn’t every day that Democrats target Latino challengers with nasty anti-immigrant ads, but these are apparently desperate times for certain embattled Dems.
Check out this remarkably vicious new ad from Blue Dog Dem Walt Minnick of Idaho, claiming that illegal immigration is “good business” for his Republican challenger, Raul Labrador,

The national democrats have been told by their strategists that the only chance they have of win in November is to make the elections as local as possible by going personally negative and doing so very aggressively. For someone who claims to be so “independent”, seems like he is taking his marching orders right from the Pelosi machine.
