On Donald Trump
On April 5, Newsmax, the far-right news service that appears to have adopted WV Congressman Alex Mooney, recently featured his views on the Trump indictment:
If they can do this to President Donald Trump, they can do this to my constituents. Anybody in West Virginia can be witch-hunted like this. You are not safe.
I think the Congressman is onto to something -- who among us has not falsified business records to coverup our involvement with a porn star?
Newsmax, also recently featured another Mooney article: this time about his endorsement from a gun rights organization:
Gun Owners of America has announced its endorsement of Alex Mooney, a Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate in West Virginia, saying he is "just the kind of principled, pro-Second Amendment person we need."
Yes, I’m sure he is. (By the way, I could not find any comment or tweet from the congressman on the recent gun attacks.)
The congressman is also keeping busy introducing legislation that is not a major concern to his constituency and, in all likelihood, not going anywhere:
The Images Act:
And the Congressman is still interested in returning the U.S. to the Gold Standard. This is Mooney’s third attempt on this one:
And what is the likely Democratic candidate doing?
Touring the Ukraine with Brad Paisley:
While his staff serves his constituents back home:
Just a thought: if the WV senate contest comes down to Mooney vs. Manchin, my money will be on Manchin.
