Sen. Walsh cancels events, campaign mum
Associated Press, by Matt Voltz

Original Article

Posted By:Pete Stone, 8/6/2014 10:55:05 AM

HELENA, Mont. (AP) - Sen. John Walsh of Montana on Tuesday postponed at least two upcoming events in Bozeman, as his campaign declined to answer questions about whether he planned to remain in the U.S. Senate race amid allegations that he plagiarized a research paper. The Walsh campaign notified Gallatin County Democratic party members that he would not attend a backyard meet-and-greet hosted by Women for Walsh that was scheduled for Wednesday or a Friday talk on public lands at the county party´s new headquarters. The campaign did not give a reason why, said Billy McWilliams, a member of the Gallatin County

Comments:
The handwriting´s on the wall. The Democratic Party only has about ten more days to get another candidate´s name printed on the ballot if Walsh withdraws.

He got caught stealing. The support group should reorganize and be called... ´Women who want a dirty Walsh to come clean´.

Are all Democrats criminals?

Clarification: Walsh has five more days to withdraw, or else the Democrats can´t put another name on the November ballot. If he does withdraw, they have ten days to agree on a replacement.
The pressure is on. I bet Gov. Steve Bullock regrets having named Walsh to the Senate seat vacated by Max Baucus. Rumor has it that Reid and Obama were behind that.

In Montana, they at least take action to get rid of lying frauds. Why can´t the country do the same with lying frauds like Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Kerry, Gore, and both Clintons?

No. 4: Walsh was identified as a Democrat in the second sentence (where he notified the Gallatin County Democratic Party of the cancellation).
Besides, everybody and his dog in Montana know who and what John Walsh is.

#3: Yes, that´s what the law says, but just see Bob Torricelli in NJ. Same exact scenario. Busted, ratings dropped, backed out too late to be replaced, was replaced anyway and no one in NJ made a single stink and the Dems won.

Laws are for people other than Dems.

HELENA – Democratic Sen. John Walsh officially bowed out of the Montana U.S. Senate race Thursday in the wake of a plagiarism scandal that has bogged down his campaign over the past three weeks. In a statement issued Thursday afternoon Walsh said the 2007 research paper from his time at the U.S. Army War College "has become a distraction" from his campaign. Walsh was trailing Republican Congressman Steve Daines in the polls even before the New York Times revealed Walsh plagiarized significant portions of a 14-page paper required for his master´s degree.

HELENA -- U.S. Senator John Walsh (D-MT) has canceled campaign appearances, his political life on the verge of collapse in the wake of plagiarism revelations and his responses to them. So how did Montana Democrats get to a point where, three months before an election, the top of their ticket is the subject of newspaper editorials calling for him to drop out of the race to keep his Senate seat? Here´s a quick review. Former Montana governor Brian Schweitzer was widely expected to run for the seat that had been held since 1978 by Max Baucus - and which Democrats have held since

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false. We discover that lapses in

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner. Goldberg told O´Donnell, ´F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don´t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie,

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey.

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

The hawkish Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina says he is thinking about running for president in 2016. In an interview with Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard, the senator, running for re-election to the Senate this year, said: “If I get through my general election, if nobody steps up in the presidential mix, if nobody’s out there talking — me and McCain have been talking — I may just jump in to get to make these arguments,” Graham said. Graham, 59, also dismissed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, 43, as a presidential candidate, saying he is too young. “He’s a good

Speaking at a Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors event last night, Hillary Clinton decided to talk about Alexis de Tocqueville. The problem? She got it wrong -- by about a hundred years. "There´s a wonderful phrase that was first used by Alexis de Tocqueville, who came to the United States in the very early 1930s and traveled around our country," said Hillary Clinton, a probable 2016 presidential candidate. "And he was so amazed at how Americans organized themselves -- you know, coming from aristocratic Europe, which was totally top-down and hierarchical -- he couldn´t believe how many of us were joiners.
