Connecticut Democrats Vote 'No Confidence' in Dodd

I can’t say I blame them; it’s hard to have confidence in a crook.

WHEREAS Senator Dodd has violated either in fact or in appearance or both, in the several ways herein elaborated, the trust placed in him by his constituents,

THEREFORE We the members of the Kent Democratic Town Committee conclude that it is the legitimate responsibility of the people to intervene and to reject those political representatives who have become enamored with achieving and maintaining their own position and power at the expense of the citizens,

WE RESOLVE that Senator Dodd does not deserve our support, and that through his pattern of behavior, he has become a symbol of what is wrong with our electoral system and deserves our vote of NO CONFIDENCE.

It’s refreshing to know that there are some Democrats willing to police their own – the way Republicans have done with Duke Cunningham, Bob Ney, Larry Craig, and others. It’s unfortunate that this is just one small town in Connecticut, and they’re only concerned with Dodd. Still, it’s a start. Maybe the Democrats will eventually get around to doing something about Charlie Rangel, John and Monica Conyers, Alan Mollohan, John Murtha, Pete Visclosky, Dick Durbin, Harry Reid, Jim McDermott, Jim Moran, Bill Richardson, and others.
