Can you imagine what they would be saying if DEMOCRATS had done this? From MSNBC's Countdown with Keith Olbermann:

So...the Congressman for West Michigan worked together with the George Bush adminstration to make information about how to make nuclear weapons available to - among other people - terrorists. Why? To help make Republicans (and the Iraq War) more popular again! That's just wonderful. I'm sure all of Rep. Hoekstra's constituents in Holland, Ludington, Manistee, and elsewhere are just beaming with pride (snark).

Incidentally, you won't find anything about the nuclear imbroglio on Rep. Hoekstra's website. But you will find a press release about John Kerry's "botched joke". Nice priorities.

Here is the New York Times article mentioned in the Olbermann piece. Also more from Think Progress.

The valiant Dem challenger to U.S. Rep. Hoekstra is Kimon Kotos. Visit his website here.

Two Manistee Dems(Lisa Hamilton and John Kudalski) had a chance to confront our Rep. Hoekstra yesterday when they boldly walked into Republican Headquarters which is a few doors down from Democratic Headquarters on River Street in downtown Manistee. He pleaded ignorance, then blamed the liberal news media. I wish I could have been there to watch him squirm.

The end of the human race will be that it will eventually die of civilization.

This has to be some kind of criminal neglect or border on treason.

Thanks Matt
Thanx Matt for once again doing your best to inform the public on just who this guy really is.  At the Kotos campaign we are working very late into the night, every night to defeat this guy.  It is 1:30am as I write this.

The good news is that our email has been full of comments and support from accross the country.  We are recieving campaign donations through our website (recently updated and upgraded).  People are fed up with the Republicans and the likes of Pete Hoekstra.

Anyone who has seen "Iraq for Sale" should be sickened to know that Pete Hoekstra is up to his eyeballs in that despicable enterprise.

The local media is not helping much and we are in touch with the national media trying to get Kimon a national interview on Wolf Blitzer or Chris Matthews or Kieth Olbermann, Tim Russert or George Stephanopolis if anyone can help it would be much appreciated.

I can be reached by email at kotosforcongress@hotmail.com
all donations to the campaign will be used to our best ability to retire Pete Hoekstra from the House of Representatives and replace him with a real person, Kimon Kotos... Thank you Matt and all who read this for your continued support.

I was with Debbie Stabenow at the CIO hall in Muskegon tonight, she is really a charming and friendly lady.  I spoke to her about the war profiteering in Iraq and if we are going to do anything about Halliburton, KBR, Bechtel, etc. and the politicians in our government who are involved in the profiteering (like Hoekstra) and she assured me that when the Dems return to power and we get subpoena power the Dems would put a stop to it and hold those responsible to account.

Just thought you might like to know.

Mike Rogers himself sits on the House Intel. Committee. BTW I talked with a guy who is a staunch card carrying Republican who is voting for Jim Marcinkowski.  He has since gone to everyone of his neighbors with Rogers signs in their yard persuading them to not vote for Mikey.  Maybe Mike should have thought about his constituency before accepting abrhamoff, delay, nay, etc.  money as only greedy Republicans with high moral standards, which include but are not limited to, participating in acts such as playing hide the soap with a male prostitute and using various drugs such as meth.  He can kiss my ( I ) as far as I'm concerned.
