PA-07: Curt Weldon's Messiah

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.
