Today’s USA Today cover has a picture of New Hampshire U.S. Senate Seat candidate Kelly Ayotte . . . along with her Mr. Mom hubby taking care of the kiddies, which is sad in and of itself. (Dude surrendered his man card at the door.) The article is about at-risk Democrats on the defense from Republican candidates in the 2010 mid-term elections. But Ayotte is exactly the kind of Republican we DON’T need.
The Republican Ayotte–who refuses to take hubby Joe Daley’s name–is mildly attractive and claims to be a conservative in her campaign seeking Judd Gregg’s U.S. Senate Seat. Don’t believe the hype.
As I noted back in 2005, Ayotte, New Hampshire’s Attorney General, was typically spineless and aided and abetted the illegal alien invasion. She was one of those mostly liberal local and state politicians who refused to enforce immigration laws and stopped police from doing so. Ayotte forbade state police from enforcing trespassing laws against illegal aliens and using them to take the aliens off the street.
New Hampshire’s cowardly attorney general Kelly Ayotte refused to appeal trespassing charges against illegal immigrants. The charges were used by local police chiefs frustrated by zero federal enforcement of immigration laws by [then Homeland Security chief Michael] Chertoff. Ayotte also instructed New Hampshire police chiefs not to use the trespassing laws to take undocumented workers off the street. Remember Ayotte’s wimpishness in any of her future runs for office.
Ayotte is now presenting herself as a conservative and tea party style candidate. That’s baloney. She’s a career politician who did the wrong things while in office. Don’t give her a chance to repeat those wrong things in the U.S. Senate.
Kelly Ayotte is part of the problem, not the solution. Oh, and if she fails in the Republican primary, maybe her five-year-old daughter Katherine and two-year-old son will finally have a mom . . . a mom whose name isn’t Joe.
