Get to Know Adam Kinzinger by his Voting Record

Adam Kinzinger, a freshman Republican Tea-Party Congressman in the Illinois 16th District, had been swept in office on the wave of the Tea-Party craze. Taken under the wing of Eric Cantor (VA-7) and anointed a “Young Gun” of the Republican Party.  So, who is this man being groomed as a long-term playmaker for the GOP? Some analysts have calculated Kinzinger to have only a ninth-grade speaking level, but I’m more concerned with getting to know him by what he has done for his constituents from his voting record.

Scheming Rove: Show Him the Money!

Karl Rove is undeserving of a speck of respect. This man has no integrity and is a coy, manipulative, scheming man. George W. Bush has called Karl Rove “The Architect”. While I have to hand it to Rove, he does seem to be capable of running campaigns- no matter how dirty he has to get or how low he must stoop. Prior to Rove’s time at the White House, he was a Republican political consultant and strategist. He worked on many notable campaigns.

Mark Kirk is bad for Illinois

Mark Kirk (R, IL-10) is currently a member of the House of Representatives. Alexi Giannoulias (D) is currently the Illinois State Treasurer. These two men are battling it out for Barack Obama's old Senate seat. While both of these candidates leave much to desire, I plan on giving Giannoulias my vote. Here's why: Mark Kirk has shown us that he can not be trusted. He has lied about serving in Iraq. In 2003, Kirk lied on the House floor stating: "The last time I was in Iraq, I was in uniform flying at 20,000 feet and the Iraqi Air Defense Network was shooting at us." Well, no, actually that's not true. It never happened. I feel that by claiming that he was a "veteran of Operation Desert Storm" he not only lied, but tried to get respect and honor that he did not earn. Kirk has falsely claimed to have won the U.S. Navy's intelligence officer of the year award, falsely claimed to "command the war room in the Pentagon", his involvement in Kosovo and his time as a teacher.
