Alex “Maryland” Mooney Named Hand-Picked Darling of Washington Republicans


Today Washington Republicans named Alex “Maryland” Mooney as one of their hand-picked darlings to join the most reviled club in America: their Congress. Maryland Mooney was promoted to “contender” in the “Young Gun” dog-and-pony show by pledging to continue this Congress’s out-of-whack priorities that put special interests and the ultra-wealthy ahead of middle class families.

“It’s no surprise that Washington Republicans and out-of-state billionaires are clamoring for Alex ‘Maryland’ Mooney to join their club: he has pledged to prop up their out-of-touch agenda that stacks the deck for the ultra-wealthy and special interests at the expense of West Virginia’s working families,” said David Bergstein of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “Luckily for the people of West Virginia, Washington special interests and their billionaire cronies don’t get to pick their representative -- ‎ the voters do, and they will make clear this fall that they don’t want to send a carpet bagger like Maryland Mooney to Washington to be another rubber stamp for this reviled Congress that hurts the middle class.”
