I heard Jack & Ben talking about Marty Seifert today on Up and At ‘em and remembered how much I had written about Seifert during the 2010 campaign. Oh the memories. Like The Midwest Cap & Trade bill Seifert said was “a good bill” and urged his colleagues to support.
Seems someone has possibly done a little internet clean up of past digressions that would sink a Republican candidate in 2014 now that we have a much more informed and far less gullible Republican party electorate than we did in 2002 & 2006. The video of his passionate House floor speech is now marked “private”.
Possibly another indicator that Mr. Seifert didn’t make the decision to get into the race AFTER the recent straw poll and maybe, just maybe, he isn’t being entirely truthful.
