Supervisor: Paul Ryan campaign event, "a highly inappropriate use of hangar space," violated county rules


One might conclude that Paul Ryan felt "entitled" to break a few county rules when he held a rally for thousands in a local airport hangar in Wisconsin.

Via JS Online:

A Nov. 5 rally for Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan at a county-owned Mitchell International Airport hangar violated county rules and lease terms for the firm that rents the space, a county supervisor said Wednesday.

Supervisor Patricia Jursik called Ryan's election eve rally "a highly inappropriate use of hangar space." She said the rally violated the county's hangar lease with Sterling Aviation, where Ryan spoke to more than 2,000 supporters.

"It turned that hangar into a big convention hall," Jursik said in an interview.

He also caused traffic jams and violated the county ethics ordinance, but who's counting?

In case anyone is wondering, Supervisor Jursik is an independent, so this wasn't about politics.

The airport manager said Ryan was originally given approval because they thought it would be nothing more than a landing and takeoff, as other national candidates have done. But it turned into something bigger and "inappropriate," you know, kind of like the Romney-Ryan campaign.


Press Release: FBI raids GOP corporate "Airport to Nowhere"


Yesterday I posted something I hope will make the rounds, "FBI raids CA corporate, taxpayer-funded airport offices. 'Is this the House GOP’s Solyndra?'” in which I wrote:

FBI agents and other law enforcement officers raided an airport out here in SoCal, specifically, in San Bernardino. They poked around storage units and Scot Spencer’s home and offices. Spencer is a convicted felon who got a couple of no-bid contracts four years ago to build the airport.

Republican Rep. Jerry Lewis helped push through congressional earmarks and other federal money that funded the corporate airport project to the tune of over $100 million. Yet, oddly, Darrell Issa, who likes to refer to himself as the "oversight cop", isn't investigating this, because he's way too busy chasing his tail, and our president, over the Solyndra non-scandal.

Here is a screen grab of a press release about that raid from one of the county supervisors:

Airport officials had said that commercial passenger planes would be able to use the airport, but so far, only those corporate jets that we've heard so much about have enjoyed that convenience.

Welcome to Planet GOP Hypocrisy.

Let's hope this story has legs.
