Little Lord Pomeroy gets another free pass. It may not be valid in November, though.

Yes, let’s ignore the findings of an authoritative committee. Let’s just assume he’s guilty because we disagree with his politics.
…On that note, it’s about time DeLay’s trial moves forward. That pile of steaming feces should rot in jail.

The ethics committee is bipartisan. Just so we’re all clear, here, that means both Republicans and Democrats are members.

Interesting – for some reason I never thought I would see Pomeroy and ethics in the same sentence. Not Pelosi’s lapdog

I just love how mature you Republicans can be.

Berg sure lost some fodder with that decision.

The guy with the biggest splat of “egg-in-the-face” is that foolish Republican Director Jones who crowed back in June about “counting down” the Ethics Committee inquiry — only to be sitting now in Bismarck with a whole lot of nothing to show for his bombast. As Grandma says, the Ethics Committee is made up of Democrats and Republicans, and anyone who questions the formal exoneration that Earl Pomeroy has now received has zero credibility.

The decision comes too little too late for Mr. Pomeroy.
Earl has resorted to throwing every bit of mud he can at Rick Berg and hope some of it sticks. In typical Democratic fashion, of course. Pomeroy doesn’t even have the decency, let alone the courage, to face Berg in a debate.
Earl’s attack ads are full of completely bogus claims. Yes, Berg has been in the Legislature for 28 years. However, when Pomeroy fails to mention that North Dakota legislators serve on a very part-time basis; and they are only in session for 80 legislative days every two years. Otherwise, they are ordinary people just like our friends and neighbors and most all of them have careers outside of the Legislature. Legislative service in North Dakota is a privilege.
I think Earl has finally reached the end of the line. Come Nov. 2nd, North Dakotans will remember how he votes with Nancy Pelosi 97 percent of the time.
