U.S. House Democrat Majority Leader was in Kansas trying to prop up Nancy Boyda. Boyda, who once claimed "independence" from the Democrat leadership must feel she's in enough election trouble 14 months out to call in the majority leader.
It's a risky strategy. First, she's going back on her word not to accept help from national Democrat leaders. Next, the Democrat Congressional majority has about a 20% approval rating. Not only are the flip-flopping and bad ratings a problem, but Hoyer has an ethics problem. Hoyer's new Chief of Staff is a former lobbyist who once gave a below market loan to a Democrat Congressman, allegedly in exchange for support of a piece of legislation.
The Kansas press continues to give her a pass on her regular inconsistencies . . . Boyda has raised thousands of PAC dollars from Democrat leadership PACs as well as thousands in contributions from DC lobbyists, yet she's been allowed to claim "independence" from DC without public challenge from the lemmings in the Kansas media. Hoyer comes to town for her and apparently not one reporter raised a question about why she would bring him to Kansas if she was so "independent."
Let's face it, Boyda looks to get a free pass from the media . . . much like "do-nothing Dennis" in the 3rd CD.
Dedicated to the proposition that Nancy Boyda is a one termer.
