(Originally posted January 4, 2010) Here is a selection of articles about Rep Neil Abercrombie (D-HI), leading Democrat candidate for Governor. Certain patterns emerge from reading them:
1) Pay-for-play politics with military contractors and other contributors
2) Efforts to organize dependency groups controlled by political cronies and put them in control of "land and assets" (Akaka Bill)
3) Efforts to undermine the traditional family and marriage, and efforts to extend "hate crimes' protection to pedophiles
4) Consistent support for socialized medicine, Carbon Tax and other tax increases.
5) Consistent opposition to Israel and advocacy on behalf of the foreign policy interests of Islamist terrorist groups.
The first article is from 2006, the rest are in chronological order starting at the beginning of 2009.
