CA-44: Ken Calvert — Portrait of a Hypocrite

We can’t forgive what occurred between the President and Lewinsky.

Those are the 1998 words of my representative in Congress, Ken Calvert, member of the Christian Coalition and co-chair to the Congressional Caucus to Fight and Control Methamphetamine.

It’s interesting Calvert would make such a statement, considering that in 1993, Corona police found him in his car with a prostitute’s head in his lap. According to the police report, Calvert was “placing his penis in his unzipped dress slacks.” The prostitute, Lorena Linberg, was a heroin and methadone user.


Fortunately the people in my district are seeing the light. Republicans now outnumber Democrats here by less than 11%, and we have a great candidate running against Calvert: Bill Hedrick.

    Hey Gila, I linked to your last Calvert post last night when I – at the request of Hedrick’s folks – posted Hedrick’s touching essay on the return of his son from Iraq. Just sayin’.

    From Gila: I noticed that, Vern, and thanks. Click here for Vern’s post.

    One Republican who has been pretty tough on Calvert is Allan Bartlett from Powder Blue Report. He made Calvert a charter member of the “Looking for Love in All the Wrong Places” Caucus, along with Former Rep. Mark Foley, Sen. Larry Craig & Sen. David Vitter.
