Hang This Around Nancy’s Neck

“The Hill” reports that Jon Corzine, “former CEO of MF Global, has given tens of thousands of dollars to the Democratic Party in recent months, putting Democratic lawmakers in awkward positions ahead of Corzine’s subpoenaed appearance before a House committee next week.”

Corzine has been involved in a multi-million dollar fraud case. Corzine was the Democrat governor of New Jersey and Senator. Let me repeat, Corzine is a Democrat.

MF Global, where Corzine had served as the chief executive, is missing an estimated $1.2 billion in customer funds.

Corzine gave $15,000 to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee on Sept. 28 and $30,800 to the Democratic National Committee in June.

While he has contributed to Democrats such as Reps. Rush Holt (D-N.J.), Frank Pallone (D-N.J.) and George Miller (D-Calif.), Corzine has become a political liability to his former allies on the Hill.

House Republicans are accusing Democrats of hypocrisy for not returning contributions from Corzine. Don’t just accuse Democrats, go after them. Get on the interview shows and ask how these donations are different from what Gingrich was accused of and later exonerated. Don’t let the liberal media get off the topic. Keep coming back to it. This is a start:

“Even as Democrats align themselves with the Occupy Movement, those same Democrats have amassed millions in financial contributions from Wall Street,” the GOP committee wrote in a press release last month.

“The fact that ‘Obama’s guy on Wall Street’ now faces possible criminal charges for the very behavior Democrats pretend to condemn exposes the Democrats’ hypocrisy.”

All the GOP needs to do is get the word out to the public. Hammer it day and night. Of course, the GOP needs to clean its own House. Hopefully we can help them do it in 2012.

In the meantime, it’s time the GOP turn the Newt lemons into political lemonade. Don’t back down. Don’t apologize. Don’t quit. Hammer . . . hammer . . . hammer. Fight . . .  fight . . . fight. Pin Corzine on Pelosi and her fellow Democrats.
