Please allow me to introduce you to Texas Congressidiot Steve Stockman.
This is not Steve’s first time to serve in congress representing Texas. He was elected for one term in 1994 and promptly defeated for what the Beaumont Enterprise described …
Stockman’s two years in Congress were marked by weirdness, such as an article in Guns & Ammo magazine that appeared under his byline in which he suggested the then-new Clinton administration raided the Branch Davidian compound in Waco on April 19, 1993, to justify a ban on assault weapons.
Oddly, Stockman said this immediately after the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City.
Stockman spent some time being a vagrant until he found Jesus at the Southern Baptist Church and claims, in his own words, that the reason he lost the election in 1996 was because he “had a birthday, two federal elections, and a wedding anniversary, all within 30 days.”
If you go to Stockman’s website, you’ll discover that President Obama has declared war on Texas.
So, Texas sent Weird Steve back to congress. Before he even packs his bags, the FEC blew the whistle. (It opens in a pdf) It seems that Steve’s contributions are in excess of the limit for individuals or groups, and that he failed to file true and honest timely accounting of contributions just prior to the election.
I am certain this was caused by Obama, the Branch Davidians, Hillary Clinton, the Federal Reserve, and a couple of birthdays, but it’s still an ethics violation.
Now I know you wish I’d quit typing and telling you about Weird Steve, but Steve’s from East Texas and has some work to do to rise to the Louie Gohmert level of nincompoopism.
He’s got a good start.
Freshman Republican Rep. Steve Stockman (Texas) on Monday said he would “seek to thwart” executive action by President Obama in regard to gun laws by any means necessary, even if it means “filing articles of impeachment.”
And to think there are some people who had placed five dollars cash American money bets that Weird Steve would call for impeachment by March. It took him less than two weeks and now I owe five bucks to Alfredo over at the Dairy Queen. Dammit.
Thanks to everybody and their Aunt Mable for the heads up.
