Minnick’s Campaign Desperate…Lashing Out In Vain! (Video)

with 3 comments

By Bill Hurst,  Minnick‘s campaign still strikes out with falsehoods, lies, attempts at character assassination,  misrepresentations and plain old childlike behavior! Then Minnick runs off and hides so he will not have to stand tall for his actions. Do we want this malcontent as our congressman?  Walt, Your attack dog Johnny Foster is doing a poor job! Your defeat will be at his feet and his feet alone!

Here is the latest on the Lopez case and Minnick’s attack ad:

From Raul Labrador’s Campaign:

October 28, Boise, ID – Walt Minnick’s flailing re-election campaign reached new lows in desperation today with an ad so wildly false and misleading the Labrador campaign has called for it to be taken down immediately.

Walt Minnick is asserting in his latest smear ad that Raul Labrador conspired to allow a criminal to flee the country so he wouldn’t have to face charges filed against him.

The real facts of the case are Raul Labrador represented a client named Carlos Lopez in 2001.  Carlos Lopez was arrested and subsequently charged with Misprison of Felony.  Upon his arrest it was determined by the INS that Carlos Lopez was in this country illegally.  Because of this, the INS placed an “Immigration Detainer” on him pending trial, which means that if he were released while awaiting trial the INS steps in and books them under their jurisdiction.

Former U.S. Attorney for Idaho Tom Moss:

I am speaking in my personal capacity and not on behalf of the US Attorney’s office or the Department of Justice.  My personal opinion after a review of the matter is that Mr. Labrador did nothing illegal or unethical. He was simply representing his client within the law and according to court procedures as allowed at that time, as I would expect any competent attorney to do. In my personal opinion the television ad is unfair in that it distorts the facts in a prejudicial manner.”

STATEMENT FROM J. KENT NYGAARD
INS Special Agent (Retired):

From 1987 until my retirement in 2005, I was an INS Special Agent assigned to the organized crime Drug Task Force. I was one of the case agents in a federal prosecution of approximately 26 defendants where Carlos Lopez was charged. He was very low level defendant who was charged as being present during the delivery of money from a prior drug deal.

 
Upon his arrest, I determined that he was from Mexico and in the country illegally. An INS detainer was placed with the U. S. Marshal’s Service. In a subsequent detention hearing, the U.S. Magistrate released Lopez on certain condition. The INS took custody of Lopez and afforded him due process as required by law. He was sent to a detention center where he was afforded a deportation hearing and I presume was deported.

 
Mr. Labrador defended his client in this matter as he was required to do under his oath and as expected by the prosecution. His actions in this case were in accordance with proper handling of a criminal case by a defense attorney.

 
Mr. Minnick’s characterizations of the events of this case are completely dishonest and misleading. His ad is intentionally deceiving and is simply character assassination.

 

From the IdahoReporter.com:

Minnick ad targets Labrador’s work helping an illegal immigrant

The latest television commercial from Congressman Walt Minnick follows a familiar theme in his campaign: criticizing Republican state Rep. Raul Labrador’s past work as an immigration attorney. The latest ad focuses on one specific case, accusing Labrador of helping an illegal immigrant facing drug charges escape prosecution.

Minnick Hyper-Critical Of Congressional Spending On Perks: Then Spends More Than His Counterparts (Video)

with 2 comments

By Bill Hurst, Minnick, posing as a conservative, has a history of criticizing during campaigns then turns around and does what he is critical of!

Let’s explore Minnick’s criticism of congressional spending on travel and franking privileges (the right of Senators and Representatives to send job-related mail without paying postage.)

In 2009 Minnick has spent almost $102,000.00 in travel related expenses. While Idaho’s other Representative has spent about $67,000 on travel. While campaigning for his run to represent Idaho’s 1st Congressional District, Minnick had concerns over the lack of accountability and transparency in the Federal Government.

From Minnick’s website

I believe our nation’s budgets should be balance, but am gravely concerned about the lack of fiscal accountability and responsibility in Washington D.C. We must go back to paying for what we spend, for the sake of our children and grandchildren.

Minnick states that we are all required to demand accountably for our tax dollars so that every penny is spent in the most cost-effective way. He went on to say that wasteful spending is the wrong approach to spending taxpayer dollars

Yes Walt, Let’s Stop The Spending  For Our Children Sake!

It seems like Minnick has taken his cue from Obama and his platform of openness and transparency in government. Well it was fine to say it to get elected, but the follow through lacks any semblance of reality. As a matter of fact it has gotten worse.

Here is what I said about Obama’s and the Democrats so-called transparency in my blog titled:

Pelosi’s Power Over So Called “Blue Dog” Democrats:Predicts Dems To Retain Control (video)

The Republicans have asked about transparency that Obama has promised to protect us from the evils of government. While spreading the rhetoric, Obama has let Pelosi work behind the proverbial “Oz Curtain.”  This allows Pelosi’s Congress to have the control over the committee chairman to concoct an array of free-enterprise busting bills behind the cloaked curtain. The new bill will be ceremoniously presented to the House floor and passed without the benefit of thought-provoking debate. This newly passed bill will be moved on down the street with haste and the “transparency” President Obama will put his rubber stamp on the new piece of liberal-socialistic law. This was undoubtedly what the endorsers of Obama’s “hope and change” were expecting.

I won’t go into a lot of detail myself about the franking privileges that Minnick has taken advantage of and will let the article from the IDAHOREPORTER.com speak to

Minnick used $150,000 in franking dollars in his first 15 months in office

that subject. I will however, comment on Minnick’s mailing on August 3rd of this year, Minnick used the congressional “franking” privilege to send 100,000 mailers to registered voters at a cost of $59,000. The postcard is headlined “Idaho Voting Laws Have Changed.” The 2010 Legislature passed a law, effective July 1, requiring voters to produce photo ID at the polls.

Minnick took the task on, to inform Idaho voters of something the State enacted. It appears that Minnick does not think that the media, county clerks, Secretary of States Office, the local political parties, will do an adequate job of informing local voters of the new ID requirement for voting!

From IDAHOREPORTER.com:

In 1996 when then-citizen Walt Minnick ran to unseat then-Sen. Larry Craig, Minnick took exception with Craig running as a “fiscal conservative” while using the congressional franking privileges to send out more than $132,000 worth of taxpayer-funded mailings to constituents. Minnick, during his first year in Congress, has used more than $150,000 for taxpayer dollars to frank, though his campaign spokesman points out that he has used that money for more direct forms of communication as well, such as telephone town hall meetings. Staffers for Minnick’s electoral opponent, Republican Raul Labrador, say that Minnick is using the franking privilege for political purposes.

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)

Let’s Take A Look At His History (video)

Politicalgame:

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.
