The woes of Wu

by NW Spotlight

The meltdown of Democratic U.S. Representative David Wu continues. His tiger suit picture made “Photo of the Day” in The Atlantic, the Associated Press reported yesterday that Rep. Wu accepted prescription drugs from a campaign donor last October – drugs that have been identified as oxycodone (an opioid like heroin) by other news sources, and an article in today’s Willamette Week also brings back up the 1976 attempted rape allegations made against Wu while he was a Stanford undergraduate.

The Oregonian reported YESTERDAY that Rep. Wu’s campaign was fined LAST OCTOBER for violating Oregon law by not having workers’ compensation insurance over much of the past three years.

Voters across Congressional District 1 are still frustrated by the complete failure of the media to report any of this prior to the election. Instead, papers like The Oregonian ran puff pieces for David Wu while refusing to accept editorials from his opponent.

It is good to see the media on the job now.

    Poor reflection on the electorate who know Wu is Woe, and not just now; But elect him anyways only because he has a D next to his name.

  • Robert Collins

    To be fair, it is worth noting that the Oregonian endorsed Rob Cornilles over David Wu in the general election, despite the “puff” pieces.

    • conservatively speaking

      Partner believes Wu’s staff committed a criminal act by not exposing him sooner.
      Methinks the DNC carried a lot of affluence in keeping it under wraps until after the election, ass well.

    • Jonesjr

      “To be fair” the Hillsboro Argus endorsed Wu for his 10 years of “experience”, also for being chairman of a House sub-committee,while knowing full well the R’s were going to win the majority.

  • Brodhead

    I guess Rob Cornilles will meet with Kevin McCarthy of the NRCC at RINOFEST 2011 (Dorchester) in order to get his marching orders. It seems per “The Hill”, Rob Cornilles takes his orders from the NRCC and not local Oregonians!

    ——————————————————————————-

    Rachel Lucas, the Washington County GOP chairwoman, said there’s been “a lot of buzz” about Cornilles running again. “I personally would hope that he does and he’s in a good position to do so,” she said.

    Cornilles said he’s not sure whether he’ll challenge Wu again in 2012.

    “I won’t deny that I’m getting a lot of encouragement,” said Cornilles, although he noted the National Republican Congressional Committee has yet to contact him. “But my decision will be based on my family, certainly my business and also the way that the district is made up [after redistricting]. There’s a lot of moving parts right now
    ———————————————————————————

    It seems that any donations made to the Oregon Republican party would be defacto support money for Rob Cornilles’s camapign.

    I have to wonder about a candidate that takes his orders from the NRCC! Especially since they are soft on deficits, and strong on bankrupting America, and our children’s future!!!

    Personally, if David Wu resigns, I would be looking to support Doug Keller!!!Doug keller is a decorated Anapolis graduate who has served in war. Cornilles is a glorifed ticket salesman!

      Appears Doug Keller or Rob Cornilles would face stiff difficulty considering what the following ‘archetypal’ 1st Congressional District Wu-Aid drinker says in the fish wrapper, Feb 24:
      “For the past 12 years I have followed Rep. David Wu’s highly intelligent and capable work as my congressman. I have attended many of his town hall meetings, at which he has always provided frank, reasoned and informative responses to constituent questions.

      Last September I attended a public debate between Wu and his opponent. The room was packed with supporters of Wu’s opponent. As always, Wu demonstrated a deep understanding of the issues, despite repeated raucous interruptions by his opponent’s supporters. His opponent’s responses, on the other hand, were naive and revealed no understanding of the important issues facing our nation.

      Wu has provided exceptional representation for residents of the 1st Congressional District. That, I expect, is why they consistently re-elect him.

  • PLS

    Anyone that took the time to investigate Wu’s voting record and history would not have voted for him. Too bad we have such a misinformed/misled group of voters in our District.

    “Wu is me…”

    Many politicians attempt rape, steal money, lie, cheat, break campaign laws, etc. Many of them do this routinely, so why are we picking on this man, who has done so much to help the little people of Oregon??
    I say we stick up for this man and support him in his time of need.
    Plus, everyone does drugs of some kind.
    Why deprive this man of what is his personal enjoyment and that does not hurt anyone (well, except maybe the attempted rape, but who really knows)?
    I would vote for him again. He is a good, strong, sane man with a few minor personal problems.
    Let a sleeping dog lie.
    Please.

    Someday you might be like Wu,
    and not know whatever you do.
    And you would like a little slack,
    and not be stabbed right in the back.
    So let him go and release his inner self,
    Roll nude in the snow,
    don’t worry about his health.
    The important fact is easily seen.
    Who cares how he acts?
    He’s doing his thing.

    And these idiot lefty newspapers are wondering why their subscriptions are tanking. Even the choir they’re preaching to can only handle so much blatant propaganda. Sometimes even “progressives” (hah) want a little bit of truth, not often, but sometimes.
