Amazing but true: Upstate New York asshat Jack Davis, once a Democrat asshat (he’s run for Congress three times as a Democrat and lost each time), is now taking his unique brand of idiocy to what you might expect would be the warm embrace of the GOP/Tea partiers, but that’s not been the case. Apparently Davis, who is running in the special election to replace scandalized Republican Craigslist tranny-chaser, Chris Lee, is too much of an asshole even for the folks who gave us Carl Paladino!
According to the Buffalo News:
Congressional candidate Jack Davis shocked local Republican leaders in a recent interview when he suggested that Latino farmworkers be deported—and that African-Americans from the inner city be bused to farm country to pick the crops.
Several sources who were in the Feb. 20 endorsement interview with Davis confirmed his comments, which echo those he made to the Tonawanda News in 2008, when he said: “We have a huge unemployment problem with black youth in our cities. Put them on buses, take them out there [to the farms] and pay them a decent wage; they will work.”
When Davis repeated those sentiments in the recent interview, the Republican leaders—who later delivered the party endorsement for the vacant seat in the 26th Congressional District to Assemblywoman Jane L. Corwin of Clarence—said they couldn’t believe what they were hearing.
“I was thunderstruck,” said Amherst GOP Chairman Marshall Wood. “Maybe in 1860 that might have been seen by some as an appropriate comment, but not now.”
When asked his controversial comments prior to a campaign event Davis replied: “It’s politics.” Rim-shot please!
Obviously, Davis has an ice cube’s chance in Hell of winning the seat. One of his challengers, Assemblywoman Jane Corwin has been given the endorsement of the state GOP, the Conservative Party and the Independence Party, and so will have three spots on the ballet.
(And speaking of idiocy, the GOP doesn’t have the market cornered: two prominent Democrats in Michigan, Michael McGuinness, former chairman of the Oakland County Democratic Party, and Jason Bauer, former operations director for the Oakland County Democratic Party have been indicted on felony charges for their amateur hour “creation” of two fake Tea party candidates. They forged signatures and everything! One of the pair falsely notarized petitions for a dozen statewide candidates! HOW in the world did these morons expect this would go unnoticed? The county prosecutor is a Democrat, so this ain’t a partisan hit job. These two need a long spell in the pokey to reflect on what they did to themselves, their political party and to their families’ future. I shook my head in disbelief when I read about this. It’s far worse than anything James O’Keefe has done, if you ask me.)
