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’s Lies, Subterfuges & Disruptions Will Not Get Him Reelected

with 2 comments

By Bill Hurst,  Minnick‘s,  campaign is using the same old lies mixed with the new ones! These packaged lies are then blended with subterfuges and topped off with the usual bag of disruptions.

Minnick’s campaign is so desperate that they have pulled out all the stops.  Walt Minnick, has not accomplished much during his two-year tenure as Idaho’s Congressman from the 1st CD. Trying to hide this fact, Minnick is slamming Raul Labrador with another barrage of lies and dirty tricks.

Mr. Minnick, tear down the wall of deceit and show yourself! Idahoans are disgusted and not amused by your child like behavior. On second thought Mr. Minnick keep it up because you are losing the Congressional race for Idaho’s 1st Congressional District.

Let’s get a few things straight Walt:

1) You did not serve in Vietnam you were in a cushy Pentagon job while my older friends were fighting, dying, and wounded by enemy fire.

2) You have saddled future generations of Idahoans with dept and higher taxes.

3) You do not want to repeal Obamacare. You would rather burden small business to the point of bankruptcy.

4) You are pro-abortion and care less about unborn human beings.

 

Why would anyone want to vote for Walt Minnick when he is going to vote more liberal in his second term and counter the conservative vote of Idaho’s other Congressman?

Walt to you and your sleazy campaign: Labrador supporters will not be denied a victory! They will prevail! They will not be denied! What you see on the horizon is Raul Labrador defeating you!

Minnick: Wanted Political Opportunist! Mike Johnson Gets Job!

with 5 comments

By Bill Hurst, Walt Minnick, posing as a conservative, needed to give some credibility to his felonious attack ads against Raul Labrador. The attack ads falsely accuse Labrador as favoring illegal immigration and profiting from illegal activity. So Minnick recruits political opportunist Mike Johnson. Johnson has ridden the coat tails of the Idaho Republican party for years.

Johnson’s first civil servant job was as a deputy coroner in the early 70’s for Ada County. Then he was a “part-time” boat cop for Ada County. He had some connections up in the little sleepy area of Boise County and secured a place as a “full-time” Deputy Sheriff in the mid 1970’s. This was for a very brief time.

Back to Ada County where in 1978 he was able to run unopposed as that counties elected Coroner; this position was also secured by his friends in the Republican Party.  In 1984 Mike had an opportunity to run unopposed as an Ada County Commissioner. When Johnson was up for re-election this time he drew an opponent and lost his bid for commissioner.

This will be a good place to regress a little and tell you why Mike was able to hop around and never really had to work through the ranks. Mr. Johnson has always tried to situate himself, not for a job, but for a “position.”   Mike has relatives and friends in high places, people including  high-ranking state and federal government officials to judges.

Johnson then manipulated his way into an appointment by President George H.W. Bush as the U.S. Marshal for Idaho. His tenure with the Marshal’s Service was marred by his debacle of Ruby Ridge in Northern Idaho. See Mike really was not much of a peace officer as he had very little experience in law enforcement.

Former Canyon County Sheriff George Nourse stated,

Mike never did complete Idaho Post Academy nor did he ever have any advance law-enforcement training. Yes, Mike Johnson was always looking for a cushy job he never has had a real law-enforcement career!   Johnson working for the Marshal’s service had nothing to do with illegal immigration, no immigration enforcement, no transport of illegals.

Nourse expanded,

As a matter of fact most of the Marshal work that he was in charge of was serving Federal civil subpoenas.”

As Mike quietly slips out of the Marshal’s Service and into the top baggage cop at the Boise Airport.  This came even after objections from Chiefs of Police and Sheriffs around the State of Idaho. This was because Johnson was not a “certified” police officer. There was also scandal at the Boise Airport and Johnson slipped out unscathed.

Is this the best Minnick can scrape up is someone with a less than stellar law-enforcement career?  To me it speaks volumes of the type of campaign and congressman Walt Minnick really is. Again I say… Will The Real Walt Minnick Stand Up!:

Mike Johnson Political Gigolo!

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.
