Ken Calvert Climbs Another Notch on the Hypocrisy Scale
It turns out Representative Ken Calvert's hypocrisy streak is more than just a passing fad - it's a regular occurrence.
Despite the fact that Calvert opposed the bill to fund the nation's energy and water infrastructure, he had no problem stuffing in 10 of his own projects to the tune of nearly $6 million.
"Congressman Ken Calvert's hypocrisy continues to reach new lows. His do-one-thing, say-another approach means Calvert opposes legislation while pushing to include local projects," said Andy Stone, Western Regional Press Secretary for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. "Fortunately, Ken Calvert's constituents see right through this thinly veiled hypocrisy."
Representative Calvert voted against the Energy and Water Appropriations Bill. [HR 3183, Vote #592, 7/17/09]
