Good riddance: Corruptocrat Dem. Alan Mollohan defeated

What was I saying the other day? Yeah: The ballot box is the ultimate sanitizer. It’s working for entrenched Beltway Republicans like Bob Bennett. And it’s working for entrenched Democrat corruptocrats like Rep. Alan Mollohan, who was defeated in his primary race tonight.

DLTDHYOTWO:

West Virginia Democratic Rep. Alan Mollohan lost his bid for a 15th term tonight at the hands of state Sen. Mike Oliverio, a defeat that further affirms the anti-incumbent sentiment coursing through the country.

Mollohan hadn’t faced a serious primary fight in more than a decade and was seen in some circles as unbeatable given that the 1st district seat had been in his family since 1968. (His father held it from 1968-1982 before handing it off to the son.)

But, Oliverio, who served a single term in the state House of Delegates before being elected to the state Senate in 1994, ran hard against Mollohan’s entrenched incumbent status and the lingering whiff of ethics problems that had dogged the Congressman for years.

The race has gotten very nasty over its final weeks with Oliverio referring to Mollohan as “one of the most corrupt members of Congress” and the incumbent retorting that his opponent is “lying” and “spreading right-wing smears”.

His fellow Democrats refused to do anything about him. The crooked DOJ dropped its federal probe of his shady activities.

But West Virginians took matters into their own hands and sent their message loud and clear:

It’s the Culture of Corruption, stupid. If Washington won’t hold these lowlifes accountable, voters will.

They’re doing the job Nancy Pelosi won’t do: Cleaning House!
