He got lit up for being #9 on the top ten list of Farm Welfare recipients in Northern California by the Redding Record Searchlight and Ryan Sabalow.
His response? “This guy is a paid mudslinger,” LaMalfa said of Park…
LOL! Last September – LaMalfa got caught with his fingers in the CRP Proxy cookie jar and his response was to call people to tell them it didn’t matter that their proxies ended up in the hands of Bay Area Moderates because the proxies weren’t voted!
Now it’s nothing to see here – the guy pointing it out gets paid for his work!!!
Sam Annestad’s crew avoided commenting in the article on the $4.7 million haul of taxpayer money Doug LaMalfa has made. Then, later forwarded some news clippings of their own that prove the point of the graphic – Doug LaMalfa is #9 on the welfare list!
In opposition to the measured approach of Aanestad, Colonel Pete Stiglich came out and ripped in to LaMalfa…
Stiglich said it’s hypocritical for a fellow Republican to receive federal farm aid, especially because LaMalfa has billed himself as a leader in the fight against expensive government entitlement programs.
“When it meets his personal interest, it’s not a big entitlement,” Stiglich said.
Therein lies the rub. This is the primary issue with Doug LaMalfa – Conservative to your face and liberal behind your back.
