PA-07: Curt Weldon's Messiah

Via Swing State Project (link to SSP if you are cross posting, not MyDD). After repeatedly denying it ever happened, Curt Weldon finally admitted that he attended, spoke at and organized an event that declared Sun Myung Moon to be "humanity's Savior, Messiah, Returning Lord and True Parent."Really:Weldon spoke at the coronation of Sun Myung Moon"as humanity's Savior, Messiah, Returning Lord and True Parent", on March 23, 2004. His office originally vehemently denied his attendance, then when he was revealed to be a co-chair organizer of the event[3] claimed that he had intended to attend but could not because of a scheduling conflict; then when a photo surfaced of him speaking at the event while standing next to a lifesize photo of him pinning a Unification Church medal on Moammar Al Qadhafi, stated that he had left immediately after the speech and had no knowledge of what else went on. Here the photo of Weldon rewarding Qadhafi:



And remember, just yesterday Weldon lashed out at Admiral Joe Sestak's cancer stricken, four year old daughter.

Curt Weldon is insane--and I'm not even going into the Able Danger stuff here, or the nepotism surrounding his daughter's consulting firm, or who knows what else. And oh yeah, Curt Weldon also occupies the PA-07, which is the 8th most Democratic district held by a Republican, with a partisan voting index of +3.6 Dem. In fact, this is district is so Democratic, that in 2005, Weldon's opponent, Paul Scholes, scored over 41% of the vote here despite only $25K raised and 90 days to campaign. Sestak, who has more money than Weldon, is going to receive 41%+ by default, and that is assuming that 2006 is just as Republican as 2004. This district is actually more Democratic than either the PA-06 or the PA-08.

Weldon has to go down. Back in the late 1990's, I lived in that district for almost a year. Just thinking about that gives me the creeps.

That's ALSO the photo of Weldon speaking at the "coronation" of Moon. It's a great double photo - busted with Moon AND Kaddafi.

Re: PA-07: Curt Weldon's Messiah

Pardon my language, but this Weldon guy sure is an ugly-looking motherfucker.

Annnnnd

at least in my POV, Moon is an anti-christ (in it's typical definition).

(Anti-Christ meaning someone who tries to replace Christ, not in the "Revelation" sense either)

PA-07's demographics

If I'm not mistaken, it's less Democratic by about 1% than 08, but more Democratic than 06. Of course, I'm looking at 2000 Gore numbers, and am unsure of how it does in other types of races, but clearly after these events and a very strong candidate in a democratic-leaning district, we should make this a HUGE pick-up opportunity.

Here's another photo of Crazy Curt giving a plaque or gift to Qaddafy.

Re: PA-07: Curt Weldon's Messiah

BTW,

None other than Cong. Harold E. Ford attended that litle soiree with Weldon. Among others.

So we better be careful about this.

Re: PA-07: Curt Weldon's Messiah

Although, Rep. Ford says he was erroneously listed on the program and didn't attend.

Re: PA-07: Curt Weldon's Messiah

Anyone else notice Weldon's eerie resemblance to Peter Griffin (from Family Guy)?

Re: PA-07: Curt Weldon's Messiah

I grew up live in Curt Weldon's district (it used to be Bob Edgar's).  I think this is the first time he's ever been mentioned outside of Delaware County.  Of all the Reps who've served as long, he's got to be one of the most anonymous.
