Meet Representative Darrell Issa (R-CA). Rep. Issa's 49th district is in the San Diego area. He is the Ranking Minority Member (Republican) on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
Today, Mr. Issa sent an open letter to Rahm Emanuel, Obama's Chief of Staff. The letter is an open challenge to Emanuel about his attempted strongarm intimidation of Republican members of the House and Senate who are questioning the effectiveness of Obama's porkulus plan in public. Specifically, Sen. John Kyl (R-AZ) raised questions about the porkulus' benefit to the economy this past Sunday on the morning TV talk shows. Following Kyl's comments, an orchestrated letter campaign was put forth by Emanuel, where the Governor of Arizona was hit by letters from multiple Cabinet Secretaries - letters of a threatening nature.
Here is a direct link to the letter, which in no uncertain terms tells Emanuel to stick his Chicago thug politics up his ass.
Thank you, Representative Issa.
Update - As of today, Aug. 14, no answer has been forthcoming from Emanuel or any of his cronies in the White House. How predictable ....
