Congressman Rohrabacher can’t seem to follow the rules

So what is wrong with this invitiation?

Still not sure? Check out Congressman Rohrabacher’s Official Congressional Website HERE.

The email uses the same banner as his official website, including the photos and Congressional Seal. None of these materials may be used for political purposes. Further down in the actual email, you will find a direct link to the official website. Clearly the disclaimer that the invitation is not printed at government expense requires a bit of creative liscense. The banner and photos on Rohrabacher’s official website were most certainly paid for with government funds.

But I guess we really shouldn’t be surprised at his failure to hold up to that promise of “not printed at government expense.” When Rohrabacher ran for Congress 22 years ago he ran on a platform of term limits. I believe he said he would only serve 6 years. But then again, it’s okay to do it if you’re a Republican.

    Did Dana go overboard? Absolutely not. Didn’t Tim Geithner and Dashle fail to pay taxes before they got caught? Yes and That’s illegal. This invitation is nothing. So Chris, stop your imagination.

    Slatemag – Dana does not need you to defend him, he has enough problems. I wonder how he feels about you comparing him to Geithner and Dashle though! :-)

    Slatemag,

    I didn’t make the rules. Rohrabacher has been in Congress long enough to know better. While this is probably simply the sloppy work of a campaign consultant, Rohrabacher is ultimately responsible.

    And what exactly do you think I have imagined here?

    Interesting to note that on the invitation, the address for Rohrabacher’s re-election committee is in suburban Washington, DC and not within the district he purports to represent. Also interesting that the phone numbers are not Virginia numbers; area code 202 is Washington, DC. Lastly, let’s remember that Erik Prince is the owner of Blackwater, now called Xe.

      Good catch Bill on who Erik Prince is. I did not know that.
