Doug Hoffman (C-N.Y.) Speaks To Glenn Beck
Glenn Beck interviewed Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman who is running for a U.S. House seat in New York state against a Democratic candidate and a liberal Republican candidate, Dede Scozzafava, who in the past has been endorsed by ACORN‘s political party, the Working Families Party.
The Republicans have put their support behind a candidate who is pro-choice, was for the stimulus, has accepted endorsements from ACORN, and also for the Working Families Party, but, hey, you know, she has a chance to win, so who cares, apparently. The Democrat is basically the same as the Republican.
Beck introduced Hoffman as “a true conservative candidate.”
Hoffman said he never thought he would get involved in politics, but ”quite frankly, I was fed up.” He said he was fed up with ”the out-of-control spending, taxes, government regulations on us and businesses, and I thought somebody had to step up and do something about it.”
Hoffman also said he “didn’t like the candidates that were chosen, and I thought that I should step up and say something about it.”
Elsewhere, political journalist Michael Barone described Scozzafava as “a pretty dodgy character from a Republican point of view.” Barone said
I mean, this is a woman who was endorsed by the Working Families Party, which is basically front for ACORN … As we’ve seen, it’s an organization whose organizations have systematically aided and abetted child prostitution, as reported in the videos that Fox News ran — that other networks were finally forced to run, that Andrew Breitbart put on the Big Government website. There is some reason for principled Republicans not to back the Republican nominee in a situation like that.
