Clay Willing to Take One for the Democrat Team; Meanwhile Screwing African Americans in the Process

February 26th, 2009 by mopns · No Comments

So Congressman Clay wants to make sure there is a “full and accurate count” during the census. In Democrat speak, this of course means counting illegal aliens. Let me get this straight. Mr. Clay wants to make sure that illegals are counted next year so that it ultimately dilutes African American power as a voting block. Talk about taking one for the team! Way to go Lacy!

From CQ Politics:

“They need to be hands-on, very much involved in selecting the new census director as well as being actively involved and interested in the full and accurate count,” said Rep. William Lacy Clay , D-Mo., the caucus’ leading voice on the census and chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform panel with jurisdiction over the decennial count.

On Thursday, Clay and other members of the 42-member caucus are holding their first meeting with Obama at White House. The census is expected to be among the issues atop the agenda. Read more


CQ Politics: House Kills Move to Examine Campaign Contributions’ Links to Earmarks

House Democrats killed a resolution Wednesday that would have called for an ethics committee inquiry into the relationship between campaign contributions and earmarks.

Only two Republicans voted with the Democratic majority.

    I don’t see how you Republicans can complain with a straight face about Democrats “screwing African Americans,” especially here in Missouri! The way Republicans treated Sherman Parker in 2006 and Shamed Dogan in 2008 was shameless, pardon the pun. The Democrats (especially that punk Slay) aren’t good either but at least they can get black people jobs and get them elected. You will have a right to complain when the Missouri GOP elects more than one black Republican at a time which will probably be never!!
