Did Dems Buy Cap and Trade Votes? -Rep. Issa Calls Rahm a THUG

Did Dems Buy Cap and Trade Votes? – HUMAN EVENTS: “

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), the ranking Republican on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform sent a letter yesterday to Emanuel, calling a thug a thug.

“While this type of scare tactic may work In Chicago, it will not work to intimidate me or other Members of the United States Congress,” Issa said in the letter. “I and others have dared to bring these facts to the attention of President Obama, the Congress and the American people. You’ve unfortunately reacted by once again resorting to the playbook of the Chicago political machine.”

According to Politico last month, Emanuel “launched a coordinated effort to jam” Sen. Kyl and other Administration critics… “[A]fter seeing Kyl and House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA.) again paint the legislation as a failure on Sunday talk shows, White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel directed that the letters from the Cabinet secretaries be sent to [Governor] Brewer, according to two administration officials.”

“The fact that the letters were coordinated by you to maximize the level of intimidation is supported by the timing, structure, and content of each letter,” Issa said. “Not only were the four letters all sent the day following Sen. Kyl’s remarks, but they were also remarkably similar in tone and sentence structure.””
