Those wacky Republicans, they just can't seem to stay out of trouble. Via the OC Weekly:

Costa Mesa Congressman Dana Rohrabacher gave his wife more than 50 percent of the campaign contributions he raised mostly from corporate sources during July, August and September, according to recently filed records at the Federal Election Commission (FEC) in Washington.

Guess how much Rhonda Rohrabacher has managed to get from the hubby in since '06? More than a quarter of a million dollars.

And guess where the money came from? Hint: It's in the opening paragraph. That's right, corporations!  "Corporate entities--especially defense and space-exploration companies--that financially benefit from Rohrabacher's D.C. maneuverings."

D'oh!

And while we all occupied poverty, guess what Rhonda got? 40 percent in raises.

P.S. Rep. Anti-Government (Schmuck-CA) is running for his 25th and 26th years in, yes, government.

    Rohrabacher is another GOPer, converted to a GOPBagger, that is smelly and dirty, just like Issa.

    I have a question about the source article, if you know  (not that it has any bearing on the heinousness of Rohrabacher's actions) ..... the article states that "Rohrabacher's Democratic Party challenger, Jay Shah, has
    more than two dozen spelling and grammar errors on his campaign homepage
    along with zero contributions, the 12-term congressman from a
    historically solid Republican district pays his wife about $4,000 a
    month under the ruse that he needs a full-time campaign manager."  I looked up Jay Shah (and yes his website is a COMPLETE mess - I dunno how he expects to get contributions or votes with that) - but Shah is running in the 47th District, not the 46th which Rohrabacher currently represents.  As a matter of fact, according to the there are FOUR Democrats currently in the race to get on the ticket in the 46th.  Has Rohrabacher been redistricted into the 47th - and, if the 47th is a new district, why aren't the Dems paying attention to laying claim to it?  Thanks! :)
