Darrell Issa’s Long Criminal Record

I got the idea for this post from Jack Jodell at the Saturday Afternoon Post.  His June 23rd post gives a rundown of Darrell Issa’s long record of criminal charges and convictions.  And he makes the point that the mainstream “media” never mentions any of this.

I knew that Darrell Issa was once convicted of auto theft, but I didn’t know his police record went any further than that.  It does.  It’s a big ’un.  It includes auto theft, carrying a concealed weapon, and insurance fraud (or whatever the charge was; he faked the theft of his Mercedes Benz).

Sometime after that, Darrell Issa had an extremely suspicious fire in a building he owned.  The fire broke out right after he had tripled the value of the insurance he was carrying on the building.  Insurance investigators were suspicious but they couldn’t prove anything.

If you do a Google search for “Darrell Issa criminal record” all of the above-listed crimes come up, plus a whole lot more.  Check out some of the links.

On the other hand, if you do a Google search for “Eric Holder criminal record” you get Nada.  Jack Shit.  Bupkis.  Sure, you’ll find some links about Fast and Furious and the House’s ongoing witch hunt; and you’ll find a few rightwing bloggers spewing their retarded venom.

But you won’t find any criminal charges, much less any convictions.  Unlike Darrell Issa, Eric Holder was working hard and getting one degree after another instead of stealing cars and setting buildings on fire.

Kinda makes you wonder:  how does a convicted criminal — and all around dickwad — like Darrell Issa keep getting re-elected to the House?  And how did he get appointed to chair the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee?  That’s much too important a committee to be headed by a car thief and arsonist.

Did any of Issa's crimes involve people of color, or communists, or Muslims? No? Then what are you griping about?

So you write up a bunch of possible crimes but nothing were he has been actually proven guilty. Can you please reference the judgements and what courts made the judgments other than reference other internet articles with out any references.

I have been search but I cant find anything.

HELP ME REPLACE ISSA! I am a mother and grandmother in Darrell Issa's district. We're really the only one's that can do this. In our defense, we only just got him because of the new lines. Many in my community don't even know we have Issa. If you can offer any support by way of advice... I would love to hear it.

Loralie: What Jerry said. Other than that, I can't think of any advice. These congressional districts are pretty much self-contained and immune to nationwide public opinion. You could also contact your local Democratic party headquarters (or whichever party you're a member of) and see if they have any advice.

Good luck. Congress would be better off without that S#$%&!#$#!##.

just because obama hasn't been convicted doesn't mean he hasn't committed felony crimes and LOTS of them.
