Now let me get this straight. US Representative Jay C. Kim, a Southern Californian Republican, is running for re-election while wearing a court ordered ankle bracelet and under house arrest in Washington D.C. after pleading guilty to 10 misdemeanor counts of accepting $250,000 in illegal campaign contributions. And yet this guy is still determined to represent his district. I can only say: Hooray! This is exactly the kind of warrior we need more of in Congress. Someone who will fight for what he believes. Not another of these liberal wimps who fold up and blow away after a few convictions. A real role model for kids. It's about time we teach our children that no matter what they got on you; never give up. When the going gets tough, the tough decline all media requests. This brave American hero may be hobbled by some liberal judge's ankle bracelet, but he's still nimble enough to fight for the most basics tenets of our great country: putting himself in a position to solicit more illegal contributions to pay off his fine. We can only hope the good people of Orange, San Bernadino, and Los Angeles Counties in the 41st District of California realize what a good thing they have going and re-elect Jay Kim back where he belongs: in the US House of Representatives.
