Exposed this week in a new book called “This Town” authored by New York Times reporter Mark Leibovich (article) is the revelation that since 2010, taxpayer-funded White House staff have been resorting to Chicago-style tactics to try and smear me.
Top Obama political operative and two-time Campaign Manager David Plouffe made media appearances last month in which he focused on making personal attacks against me in a desperate effort to discredit the work I am doing, hoping their attacks will get me to back down from my constitutional obligations to pursue oversight over this Administration.
Their poor attempts to draw attention away from the mounting scandals occurring inside Barack Obama’s “most transparent” Administration in history will not work. I am more committed than ever to my belief that government must be held accountable to taxpayers.
The Obama Administration has repeatedly broken its promise to be the most transparent government in history, and in fact it’s been the work of the Republican majority in Congress that has uncovered the truth about scandals ranging from ACORN and Fast and Furious to the cover-up of Benghazi and the administrations attack on conservatives and on media outlets including Fox News and the Associated Press.
Next year, Barack Obama is going to ask the American people for a majority in Congress so he can defeat Republican oversight efforts and pass the remainder of his government takeover agenda.
Obama’s top aides and allies will continue this smear campaign against me. They are not going to stop as long as we keep pursuing the truth. I’m asking you to stand with me right now against this outrage and these Chicago-style tactics. What’s more important, I’m asking you to stand with me against Barack Obama’s attempt to defeat the Republican majority in Congress next year.
Any amount will make a difference. Whether its$5, $50, $500 or $5000, your support and the contributions of millions of activists like you are essential to fight the Obama campaign machine and defeat the Democrats efforts to takeover.
Please don’t wait, I need you to join me in this fight today.
Congressman Darrell Issa
ISSA PAC, Honorary Chairman
P.S.: Obama’s top aides and allies believe they can hide from the truth and distract the American people by smearing me. I’m asking you to stand with me right now against this outrage.
