I am sure most, if not all, of you have now read about the very serious ethical and legal questions surrounding Congressman Tim Bishop and his shady fundraising practices.
The fact that Newsday, other local newspapers, and the leading non-partisan ethics group in Washington are all calling for an investigation into Congressman Bishop, suggesting he may have even broken the law, speaks volumes.
Congressman Bishop’s attempts to blame others for his own actions – going so far as to claim that the allegations are somehow an attack on his family – reek of desperation.
If this whole sordid tale teaches us anything, it’s that the career politicians who have made a mess of Washington simply cannot be the ones trusted to clean it up.
We need to change Congress. And we can start by changing our Congressman.
Last week, I made the 2nd stop on my 10-week tour of Long Island small businesses and stopped at Johnny’s Burgers in Centereach. In addition to getting a great burger, I also had the privilege of meeting and talking with Anthony and Gina DeLuca, who took a risk and started this business in 2010.
I am running for Congress for people like the DeLuca’s – a middle-class, Long Island family who had the courage to dream big and take a risk.
My 10-point plan, which I encourage you all to read a www.Randy2012.com/jobsplan, outlines real solutions to the problems we face. My plan will foster a climate of job creation, boost small businesses, attract new jobs to Long Island and help to transform our local economy for the future.
As the father of two children under the age 6, my wife and I are deeply concerned about what awaits them in the future. On the campaign trail, one of the chief concerns I hear from parents and grandparents is the lack of jobs for their children and grandchildren here on Long Island. I couldn’t agree with them more.
With your support, I will work with common-sense people on both sides of the aisle in Congress to clean up the mess we have now and build a brighter future for Long Island and our country.
