RedState Radio: Diana Irey
By Erick Posted in Podcasts — Comments (8) / Email this page » / Leave a comment »
Last year, few people expected that Rep. John Murtha could be seriously challenged. A popular, but corrupt, Pennsylvania Congressman, Murtha stepped out to become the most forceful Democrat objecting to the War on Terror -- calling for total retreat and surrender.
Murtha began accusing American soldiers of savage butchery in Iraq, going so far as to label our men and women in uniform as war criminals.
Enter Diana Irey. A Commissioner in Washington County, Irey took on Murtha when few said anyone could topple him and she has proven to be a hit. Troops in Iraq have been sending home campaign contributions to Diana Irey to show their support for her and their outrage at John Murtha.
Commissioner Irey talked earlier today with Academic Elephant about her campaign, her goals once she is in Congress, and about corruption charges John Murtha has leveled against her (irony knows no bounds with John "I'll take your bribe" Murtha).
