Schakowsky: Tea parties 'despicable'Submitted by northstar on Thu, 04/16/2009 - 20:40
Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) blasted "tea party" protests yesterday, labeling the activities "despicable" and shameful."
"The ‘tea parties’ being held today by groups of right-wing activists, and fueled by FOX News Channel, are an effort to mislead the public about the Obama economic plan that cuts taxes for 95 percent of Americans and creates 3.5 million jobs," Schakowsky said in a statement.
Great comments, one I like, but not verifiable is:
Schakowsky's hubby –Robert Creamer — was sentenced to five months in prison and eleven months of house arrest for bank fraud and tax violations. Schakowsky signed those returns for fradulant non-profits. That is "despicable" and shameful", but just your average Illinois Democrat!
