Evans Deserves Respect
Without further ado, here is today's contribution from Guest Poster, YoungDem530
Recently in the crap bag we call the Dispatch our Congressman Lane Evans, D-Rock
Island, has been catching the brunt of this flaming bag of conservatism. The
fumes from the paper must have gotten Tom Getz, Rock Island County Republican
chairman, pretty high when he said that the village idiot Mark Baker could have
won if the alleged campaign finance slip-up would not have occurred.
While I don't claim to know the details of the incident I definitely do not think it
would have mattered, Congressman Evans has a strong hold on the 17th
congressional district and for good reason. Evans and his staff have been at the
forefront in the battle for the everyday citizen ranging from veteran's benefits
to helping seniors with their Social Security.
With the deceptive practice of politics that we see in the White House and leadership in both chambers of Congress, it is a breath of fresh air to see a politician that is genuinely concerned with people in his district and not the power that comes with the position.
The Quad Cities and the state of Illinois are lucky to have Congressman Evans. Lane Evans deserves the respect from both sides of the political spectrum including a certain crap-bag newspaper.
