True enemy of gun owners’ rights according to NRA recap of voting record
An open-borders kinda guy who apparently has done NOTHING to prevent illegals from running havoc with our tax dollars. U.S. Border Control "0" rating.
Americans for Immigration Control "0" rating.
English First " F" rating. A true enemy of gun owner's rights.
NOW, HE WANTS TO LIMIT THE RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH! WANTS TO REGULATE NEWSPAPERS, MAGAZINES, NARAL, NRA, SIERRA CLUB, etc.....and, the MassGOP still doesn't bother to run anyone against this ultra-liberal. Something is wrong with the MassGOP....
Congress: MASS. 3rd Congressional District (North Central Mass)
Tsongas is a liberal extremist. Elected in 2007 because her husband held the office and died. Ran on his name, similar in fashion to the prior (and perhaps future) Kennedy reign.
2012_JANUARY: Website features Niki with liberal Elizabeth Warren. Niki endorses Warren for Senate.
From "OnTheIssues.org: Tsongas has benefited from third-party groups advertising on her behalf. EMILY’s List, which supports female Democratic candidates who support abortion rights, spent $125,000 on radio ads in the region linking Ogonowski with Bush.
Ratings based on website postings, questionnaire submission, and personal observance by multiple VCV members, , as well as the Talk 1200 debate.
*Says that while he is personally for one-man, one-woman for marriage, he does not believe the fed. govt. should be involved at all (constitution), so we encourage you to read his extensive comments to better understand his position on not voting on this issue. -Editor.
See the radio broadcasts from the JEFF KATZ show.
Seems she is MORE THAN HAPPY to run fundraisers at OBAMA and other ultra-left radical left Democrat supporter's households. Has not ruled out, and apparently has done or is doing several. More to be posted.
She registered as a REPUBLICAN in 2011 after spending most of her life as a DEMOCRAT.
She calls herself a "SOCIAL LIBERAL" but also believes in taxpayer funding for abortion, to help out poor people. Taxpayer money to pay for abortions, is not exactly Fiscal Conservatism either, nor small govt. So, she's a NO on most things.
Edorsed by Bill Weld (the same guy who endorsed Democrat B. Obama).
From candidate's website: I am pro-choice and support gay rights. I strongly support the Second Amendment, however *we are
awaiting completion of survey as public statements do not match website claims

Congress: MASS. 6th Congressional District (North East)
Talk 1200 Talk Show Host Jeff Katz calls Mr. Tierney "Pockets Tierney" for being "married to the mob."
Tierney: A long-term incumbent staunch on raising taxes and limiting individual choice.
John Tierney : "F-Grade: True enemy of gun owners’ rights. A consistent anti-gun candidate who always opposes gun owners’ rights and/or actively leads anti-gun legislative efforts, or sponsors
Gets kinda sick that this guy's family/wife can launder $8million, plead guilty, and Tierney acts like Reinhold in Casablanca "shocked that there's gambling going on in this establishment" while being handed his winnings..... sad, all too sad.

Adam is also a proud volunteer with the Big Brothers and Big Sisters Association of Cape Cod where he has been a mentor for nearly five years. At 21, Adam became the youngest person elected to the Board of Selectmen in the Town of Sandwich, where he later became Vice Chairman of the Board. Many of Adam’s neighbors on the Cape also remember him from The Adam Show, a local television show he produced to shed light on issues affecting Massachusetts and the local Cape communities.

Concern is noted.

Well, with incumbents, VOTES speak loud, but with "challengers",
picking through the mud can get murky at times.
