Hovde Is All In With Mitt!

We all know the story of how Mitt Romney illegally put his family dog, Seamus, on the top of his car for a 12 hour ride on family vacation. Well Washington DC resident and current Wisconsin republican senatorial frontrunner Eric Hovde is angling for Mitt Romney's endorsement.

 H/T Tony Galli and WKOW:
Hovde cited for ignoring boating safety Republican U.S. Senate candidate Eric Hovde was cited by a Dane County sheriff’s deputy for allowing his daughter and a dog to be pulled behind his boat, without taking necessary safety precautions.

According to the citation, Hovde was pulling his daughter and a dog in a tube behind his boat June 24, without having a safety observer aboard the boat. Authorities said Hovde told deputies he knew an observer was needed.

The citation case remains open.

Key sentence there:

Hovde told the deputies that he knew an observer was needed! 

Which means that in a year he is trying to buy a US Senate seat while vacationing in Wisconsin, he felt that the laws do not apply to him.  If he is such a person of privilege that he feels no laws apply to him now, how would he govern as a Senator?

 Next thing you know, his company will be illegally paying him back all the money he spent to get elected AFTER the election!  I can see it now, he is just arrogant enough to answer, when asked,

"It's a private business. I've complied with all the disclosure laws, and I don't have to explain it any further to someone like you."

Nah no one is that arrogant!

However it is very disturbing that when he should be minding his P's and Q's while running for a high profile public office, Hovde could care less about the laws and does as he pleases when and where he pleases!    Hardly the character qualities of someone who we would hire to represent all 5.7 million Wisconsinites.

It is downright embarrassing actually!   

Let's make sure Eric Hovde is unable to buy a Wisconsin Senate seat and give to the only person in this race who actually has ethics and morals!  Tammy Baldwin

Finally, is it republicans that hate dogs or just sons of privilege?  


  1. Stupid rich kids unite! What kind of jag doesn't have a spotter when you're tuning with your kid?

    And I wouldn't be shocked if he does have a RoJo-style company bonus kickback to pay for his campaign expenses. Good catch Jeff, and pound on this point. Let's see if Wisconsin has learned anything in the last 2 years.

  2. speaking of rojo, whatever will he do if hovde,who's spent 20 years in d.c. wins? rojo considered it a big plus for himself to have never been to d.c.


    Yessireeeebob..... Hovde is one wealthy sunavabich.....
