Luke Esser fucks pigs

Luke Esser fucks pigs

I’ve just faxed the complaint above to the Legislative Ethics Board, and if you think this is over the top or in poor taste, I’d just like to point out in my own defense that I never once mentioned the gender of the pigs in question. (Although believe you me, I’ve heard rumors…)

Am I unfairly casting aspersions? Well, go check out Darryl’s post on Hominid Views about the lying piece of shit robo-call he received on behalf of state Sen. Luke Esser:

Recording: An ethics investigation has been opened against Rodney Tom. Rodney Tom took compensation for days he didn’t work. Rodney Tom has one of the worse attendance records in the legislature. Rodney Tom has missed 84 votes. Again, Rodney Tom is being investigated for ethics violations.

In fact, Rodney Tom is not under any sort of investigation, ethics or otherwise, and Esser knows it. What the robo-call refers to is an informal complaint filed by Esser buddy, contributor and former roommate George Aiton — a complaint that served as the direct inspiration for my own malicious missive. (Go check it out.) All I’m doing is following their lead to its logical conclusion.

Apparently, Esser and Aiton’s idea of “common decency” consists of filing a frivolous complaint against one’s opponent, and then dishonestly inflating it into a full-blown Ethics Board investigation. I know such dirty tricks aren’t unusual for Luke Esser or the WA state GOP, but it speaks volumes to his sense of propriety.

UPDATE:
If you’ve got the money to put into an IE on a robo-call in the 48th LD, feel free to use this script:

Recording: An ethics investigation has been opened against Luke Esser. Luke Esser fucked pigs. Luke Esser is one of the worst pig fuckers in the legislature. Luke Esser has fucked 84 pigs. Again, Luke Esser is being investigated for ethics violations.

I suppose it’s pretty damn low and dishonest to accuse Esser of fucking pigs, but well… somebody did file a complaint accusing him of such, so I guess it’s, um, kosher.

UPDATE, UPDATE:
For those of my readers who are too dimwitted, dense or self-righteously prudish to appreciate this post, I believe this brief dissertation on political parody might be enlightening.

UPDATE, UPDATE, UPDATE:
For your listening pleasure, a recording of Luke Esser’s lying robo-call attacking Rodney Tom. Anybody up for recording my script above?

    Rep. Toby Nixon spews:

    Neither Aiton’s letter nor Goldy’s letter is a formal “complaint” to the Legislative Ethics Board, and an investigation is not started on the basis of such a letter alone. Before an actual investigation can be started, the form at http://www1.leg.wa.gov/documents/leb/complain.pdf must be completed, signed, and submitted — and by signing that form the complainant also signs the following statement:

    I certify and swear, under oath, that the facts set forth in this statement are true and correct to the best of my knowledge, information, and belief. *RCW 9A.72.040 provides that: “(1) A person is guilty of false swearing if he makes a false statement, which he knows to be false, under an oath required or authorized by law. (2) False swearing is a misdemeanor.”

    I’d suggest that Goldy not re-submit his “complaint” on that form. ;-)

    It is my understanding, based on a press release sent out by the KCGOP on October 11, that an actual ethics complaint has been filed. Here’s the text of that release:

    Ethics Complaint Filed Against Rep. Rodney Tom

    Bellevue – King County Republican Party Chairman Michael Young released the following statement today:

    Yesterday a complaint was filed with the Legislative Ethics Board in Olympia alleging that Rep. Rodney Tom requested and accepted per diem compensation on days when he was not in Olympia and missed a total of 94 votes, one of the worst attendance records in the Legislature. Rep. Tom’s terrible voting record is bad enough, but intentionally skipping days of work while taking additional compensation, which is intended to be a reimbursement for meals and lodging expenses while working, constitutes a serious breach of the public trust and should be thoroughly investigated.

    Thus, the robocall may in fact be technically accurate and an investigation underway. I don’t feel any better about it because of that, however.

    Can you back up your murder charges with examples? Yeah, yeah, I know you’re gonna say “Vince Foster.” Never mind that investigations by several police agencies and the D.C. coroner all independently concluded that Foster committed suicide and there was no evidence of foul play; wingnut liars never let facts get in the way of polemics.

Mayor Rudy Clay said the overtime budget has already been drained. “We just ran out of money,” he said. Source corrected by LComStaff to conform to site style. Dateline reinserted

    Meanwhile, elected officials continue to get paid their exhorbatant salaries and bloated city worker pensions and healthcare programs which Joe Taxpayer has to bend over to pay for these selfish greedy people.

    Nearby Calumet City, IL just voted themselves free healthcare for life after 5 years service. [Typical black Democrat Hillary Village. Not a Republican around for miles!! Lots of drugs, crime, and corruption. Atlas has Shrugged!]

    “Thus, the robocall may in fact be technically accurate and an investigation underway. I don’t feel any better about it because of that, however.”

    As I mentioned in my post, Mike O’Connell, the person who initiates the investigations for the Legislative Ethics Board, told me yesterday that no investigation exists, nor will an investiation be started until he receives a complaint.

    So Esser’s robocall is incorrect. There is no investigation started or pending.

    North Korea declared today that U.N. sanctions are “a declaration of war.” This rhetoric is typical of the paranoid commie regime’s hyperventilating, wing-flapping bluster. Meanwhile, Condi Rice is headed toward Asia to negotiate with other countries about implementing the sanctions.

    Hey, that’s a remarkable statement coming from a member of the Bushie neocon cabal who think the U.N. is irrelevant, bray against the “axis of evil,” and want to solve all the world’s problems with military force. Whatever happened to good ol’ imperialist intervention? Showing the flag? Sailing the fleet?

    I seriously doubt that Bush, Rice & Associates suddenly had an epiphany and realized the U.N. is good for something after all. More likely, this is a case of cluck-cluck-cluck.

    Goldie, I am deeply, deeply offended by the attention you call to the gender of the pigs involved in sexual relations with Mr. Esser. I think that when two of god’s creatures are involved in a loving and consentual reltionship that the relative sexes of the participants is not important. What is deeply troubling, and a point that you seem to have missed is that the average lifespan of the domestic pig is 10 years. This means that it is highly unlikely that all of the objects of Mr. Ellis’ desire were above the age of consent.

    I disagree. The media has taken to ignoring dirty tricks like these because, you know… Republicans will be Republicans. Meanwhile, somebody like Darcy Burner dares call Dave Reichert on his lies, and it provokes a full page editorial attack from the Times. Sometimes satire, no matter how extreme, is our only tool.

    102 — It’s very rare that a floor vote will be taken while a committee is meeting. However, in the closing days of the session, it is quite common for legislators to be involved in negotiations on key bills while floor votes are being taken on the hundreds of mundane housekeeping bills the legislature passes every year.

    121 — Has anyone actually asked Rodney why he was absent for those few days? If you asked any of the other legislators, they’d have a simple and plain explanation. I can point to just about every other legislator with a high count of missed votes and tell you what was happening in their life, but I don’t remember Rodney explaining where he was.

    Darryl @ 118

    Actually, Rodney Tom switched parties right after the close of the legislative session in 2006. Presumably, he had a very good reason for being absent those four days during April 2005. As Toby Nixon points out, state legislators rarely ever play “hookey”. And when they do, it is usually a compelling reason. It is a relatively short and intense session (105 days odd years, 60 days even years), and nearly all of them are there on any given day and any given vote of the session.

    Full-time legislatures, such as the U.S. Congress have much spottier attendance and voting records. Especially on Mondays and Fridays.

    Our PDC laws in Washington also reflect the serious and intensity of the legislative session. State legislators are banned from raising money during legislative sessions (and also for 30 days before and after regular sessions). Some of the reasoning is to protect the legislative process from the influence of money (well they tried at least!). But it also tries to ensure that legislators aren’t spending their time trying to fundraise during the session, and focus on their business.

    Toby,

    Many thanks for the figures for all Reps. That would have taken many hours to do from the house web pages. In looking at Rodney Tom’s record of votes (which show the day of the session each vote is taken on), I estimated he missed about 6 days total in the last four years. Most of them were in 2005. I also believe he made every vote in 2006.

    I’ve heard rumors that the difference in Tom’s 2005 to 2006 record is the result of the positive influences of becoming a Democrat. I’m skeptical about the claim, but that’s what they’re saying…. :-)

    Darryl @ 85

    Sorry for not checking your post first, and thanks for checking with Mike O’Connell. He is most definitely the authority on whether or not an investigation is in progress.

    I note that in your posting you said that it was tough to find out how many votes people had missed. It’s really not that hard if you have the database of votes (which I do on my computer at home). To make it easier, WashingtonVotes.org has it readily available at http://www.washingtonvotes.org/MissedVotes.aspx. I took their listing for the 2005-2006 biennium and sorted it by number of votes missed. The sorted list appears below. Note that Rep. Tom is 22nd out of 147 legislators. There are explanations and stories for just about every one of these high missed-vote counts — either the member was ill (in some cases very seriously so), or a family member was ill, or their spouse was delivering a baby, or they’re in leadership and spending a lot of time negotiating budgets and such with the governor. One cannot assume that missing a bunch of votes means one was slacking off, playing golf or in the company of swine. In my case, the three votes I missed in 2005 (the only three votes I’ve missed in five years in the legislature) were on a very rare Sunday morning session of the legislature,; I absolutely had to be present in church that morning, and got down to Olympia shortly after noon.

    “Barelli if you’re a Christian then YOU are the enemy. As to your alleged military experience, fine. I served in Nam myself. It’s not relevant in any way.”

    Nice to see that the battle lines are drawn. From your perspective, ALL Christians are the enemy. If ANY of us vote according to your wishes, it is only because you have tricked us into doing so.

    “So you Johnboy are the enemy. Hopefully, we’ll flush you out soonand be done with your deception. And when we win in Nov, it won’t be thanks to you. It will be in spite of you.”

    Ah, but you won’t win in November. We will. I’m helping out a couple of honest Democrats, and it looks like they’ll both win. It wouldn’t bother me if they were some other religion, but it happens that they are both Christian. One of them even goes to my church.

    It’s interesting that you seem to be going out of your way to alienate folks that are voting Democrat. You declare large segments of us (perhaps the largest single group of us) to be “the enemy”. It’s as if you want to keep us from being Democrats. You seem to want all Christians that are Democrats to stay home. Let’s face it, your words are not going to discourage Republican Christians, but are aimed at Democrat Christians like me.

    You are the folks that the right wing point at when saying that Democrats are anti-Christian. Personally, I think you’re a Republican troll, putting up talking points for the Republicans to use in trying to convince us that the left is a “tool of the Devil”. Sorry, it won’t work.

    Yes, I am your enemy. People who speak the truth are always the enemy of liars, cheats and hypocrites, regardless of the false labels you pick for yourselves.

    We Democrats are not stupid enough to believe that anyone claiming to be on our side is not simply trying to use us, the way the far-right has used the Republicans.

    So, I’m here promoting honesty and fair elections, you’re promoting cheating and doing “anything to win”. Next, you’ll start claiming that I’m really a Republican.

    I think the only honest thing you’ve said is that you’ll do anything to win. I’m not sure which side you’re actually working for, but if it is the Democrats, we neither need you nor want you, and there are a lot more of us than there are of you.

    Yes, you need to lie and cheat to win. First, you need to lie to us, and we aren’t buying it.

He’s not in my district, so it really isn’t my problem, but if you’ve got the data (rather than just the claims of another blog or his opponent) I’d like to see it.

    Apparently this has been checked, but my own source for that is just another blog, so it is somewhat suspect. Still, your side is making the claim (and calling voters to make the claim) that an investigation has been opened, so I would ask you to give a reference to that.

    I generally agree with the substance of your posts. I do not agree, however, that trashing Christians is either a principled or wise campaign strategy for Democrats to pursue. A great majority of Americans consider themselves Christian, even if their private behavior frequently fails to reflect any religious belief. Telling those people that our party doesn’t want them is, simply, suicidal. I, like John Barelli, am a church-going Christian. My religious beliefs have pushed me to the left side of the political spectrum–the Christian left has a long and proud history of involvement in progressive movements in this country, from the antislavery movement, to various antiwar movements, to the civil rights struggle, etc. The current crop of leaders of the “Christian right” blasphemes Christian principles, and should hardly be relied upon for anyone on the left to badmouth Christians. I agree with you that we’ve got a war on our hands with regard to taking down Republicans. Fighting amongst ourselves, though a longstanding tradition in our diverse party, does not make any sense at this time.

    So if a complaint was not filed against Rodney Tom, why all the fuss?”

    Actually, Goldy has stated that there has been no complaint filed, but the robo-call is telling folks that there is one. That is the essence of Goldy’s point.

    Some joker (and friend of Mr. Esser) writes a letter and then an anonymous outfit apparently working on behalf of Mr. Esser calls voters claiming that his opponent is under investigation by the ethics committee. This is done in the last few days of the campaign, when there isn’t time to rebut the charges.

    Goldy’s point seems to be that it would be equally legitimate for Mr. Tom to start a robo-call claiming that Mr. Esser is under investigation, for a somewhat more spectacular reason.

    I don’t recommend it. We’re the good guys, and we need to act that way. Honesty and integrity don’t always win in the short run, but over the long haul, they are better policies and the foundation for a more lasting and effective victory (as the Republicans are just beginning to find out).

    The problem with your complaint is not it’s substance but rather the vocabularly. I know you want to be deliberately crude for shock effect, but your “insinuations” could be more palatable to a wider audience if you were to tone it down.

    For example, you could say :

    “An ethics investigation has been opened against Luke Esser. Luke Esser had sexual relations with pigs. Of those in the legislature who have sexual reltions with pigs, Luke Esser is one of the worst. Luke Esser has had sexual relations 84 pigs. Again, Luke Esser is being investigated for ethics violations.”

    Then again, perhaps it is your intention to make it difficult to quote you directly in the media. And perhaps it is taking it too far to use language which could be interpreted has having oral sex with pigs rather than some kind of penetrative interaction.

It is very common practice to accept per diem for every day of the session — virtually every legislator does it except those who live within easy commuting distance of the capitol.

Or at least they think no one would, which is the same thing as far as they are concerned.

    That’s why they have Karl Rove and spin. They’re too chicken to just stand up and say in a normal voice “This is the plan we have for where we’d like to take the country.”

    It’s why I haven’t been able to vote for one for a while. I expect the people that work for me to have some brains and backbone.

    I have been saying forever that we need to play as dirty as they do if we’re going to win. We need to run our own push polls and robo – calls spreading lies about the wingers because if we don’t – they’ll steal another election.

    This is simply war – and until the Dems get that, we’ll get beaten time and again. The GOP is willing to do ANYTHING to win. Are we?

    I’m not so sure. He’s working very hard to keep the largest single group of Democrats from voting. If all the Christians in the Democratic Party were to decide to stay home in November, the Republicans would win in a landslide.

    Still, he could be one of ours. I have met a few Democrats that actually seem to think that way, and would rather lose than accept the possibility that Christians are not all covert followers of Pat Robertson.

    Their parents made them go to church, where they were told that they had to play nice and share their toys, and they never got over it.

    WASHINGTON – Movie actor Wesley Snipes was indicted Tuesday on eight counts of tax fraud accusing him of trying to cheat the government of $12 million in false refund claims.

    ADVERTISEMENT

    Snipes, 44, also failed to file tax returns for six years, according to an indictment unsealed in Tampa, Fla.

    Federal prosecutors said that Snipes fraudulently claimed refunds totaling nearly $12 million in 1996 and 1997 on income taxes already paid. The indictment also charged him with failure to file returns between 1999 and 2004. [………Do black Democrat have to pay taxes?

    Oct. 16 (Bloomberg) — Bono, the rock star and campaigner against Third World debt, is asking the Irish government to contribute more to Africa. At the same time, he’s reducing tax payments that could help fund that aid.

    After Ireland said it would scrap a break that lets musicians and artists avoid paying taxes on royalties, Bono and his U2 bandmates earlier this year moved their music publishing company to the Netherlands. The Dublin group, which Forbes estimates earned $110 million in 2005, will pay about 5 percent tax on their royalties, less than half the Irish rate. [……………..”Save the world!! Pay more taxes!!

    One day an 85-year-old man is taking a stroll around his hometown, which he has lived in for his whole life. As he sees the landmarks, homes, and streets from his youth, he starts reminiscing….

    “I remember helping build that bridge when I was 25. I worked hard on that. But people won’t call you ‘the bridge builder’ if you do that here. No, no, they don’t!”

    “I remember building that house over there when I was 30. But people won’t call you ‘the house builder’ if you do that. No, no they don’t!”

    “I remember building that tavern that I still lounge at when I was 35. If you do that people won’t call you ‘the tavern builder’ either. They sure won’t!”

    “The GOP is willing to do ANYTHING to win. Are we?”

    No. To adopt the tactics of the GOP is to become the GOP. I seen no advantage to replacing their lying, cheating, self-serving hypocrites with our lying, cheating, self-serving hypocrites.

    Interestingly enough, Democrats are, for the most part, running clean, honest campaigns and we’re winning. I realize that the Democrats that are winning are not the folks with the ultra-left agendas hidden behind false words that you might prefer, but the Democrats are winning this time.

    While I understand that from your perspective, I, along with most Democrats, are probably right-wing. After all, I’m Christian and I’ve served in the military. You’ve already told all of us what you think of Christians on several occasions.

    So, you may be right when you say that people with your ultra-far-left perspective will need to lie and cheat to gain any sort of power, because the first thing you need to do is to convince Democrats that you are really on our side.

    So, sorry RightEqualsStupid, but no, I decline to replace the far-right liars, cheats and self-serving hypocrites that somehow convinced the Republicans that they were on “their side” with folks like you that are trying to convince Democrats that you are on “our side”. Liars, cheats, and self-serving hypocrites need to be thrown out, regardless of the false labels you put on yourselves. We decline to become our enemy in order to defeat him.
