The Queen Bee of Democratic Party corruption, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, must be shedding big tears this morning after reading all the casualties among her foot soldiers in the Gang of 66 that she commands.
The electorate decided to clean the U.S. House of Representatives and concentrated in retiring some of their most corrupt Democratic Party members. They take cash in exchange for their anti-Cuba votes. Also, some of the equally corrupt Blue Dog Democrats went down in flames.
Here is an incomplete list:
Three Gang of 66 members wanted to be “promoted” to the U.S. Senate. Kendrick Meek in Florida barely got 19% of the vote. Brad Ellsworth in Indiana also wanted to go up to the Big Show. “Hold your horses!” the Hoosiers responded. Joe Sestak also wanted a promotion. Voters rejected him.
Allen Boyd, Ron Klein, John Spratt, Ike Skelton, Chet Edwards.
Two members of the Florida U.S. House Democratic delegation, who were not members of the original 2007 Gang of 66, but who signed a letter opposing the right of all Americans to travel to Cuba freely, Allan Grayson and Suzanne Kosmas, were also defeated.
