At the close of the Constitutional Convention in 1787, Dr. James McHenry, a Maryland delegate, followed Benjamin Franklin from Independence Hall. He recorded a question asked by a lady, directed at Dr. Franklin.

The lady asked, "Well Doctor, what have we got? A republic or a monarchy?"

"A republic," replied Dr. Franklin, "if you can keep it."

Meet Rep. Pete Stark (D-CA)

Meet Congressman Pete Stark (D-CA) >>CLICK HERE<<

This man makes me ashamed to live in California. I'm shocked that he could win election anywhere and hold office or do anything short of trimming trees or sweeping up refuse.

Mr. Stark, The Gentleman from California, feels that the border is secure as it's ever going to get and that there is no need to do anything more than has been done.

Fox News wrote: Stark earned his primary challenge after he slammed a constituent who voiced his opposition to Obama's health care plan last summer at a town hall meeting.
"Mr. Congressman, don't pee on my leg and tell me it's raining," the constituent told Stark, referring to what he called the smoke and mirrors of the president's plan.
"I wouldn't dignify you be peeing on your leg," Stark fired back. "It wouldn't be worth wasting the urine."
He is a shameful cur, and it's disgraceful to see a man of this low character holding an office of honor, trust or responsibility in the United States.
In an August 23, 2008 video taped interview with Jan Halfeld concerning the size of the national debt, Stark stated that the size of the national debt is a reflection of the nation's wealth. When pressed if the nation should take on more debt in order to have more wealth, Stark threatened Halfeld and said, “You get the fuck out of here or I’ll throw you out the window.”
Mr. Stark is the LONGEST SERVING Congressman from California -- and the poster child for term limits. He blatantly flaunts House Rules and is the subject of an ethics committee investigation. We know that those sorts of things rarely result in discipline. For two years, Stark was allegedly claiming his lakefront Maryland home as his primary residence in order to claim a homestead exemption to reduce his local real estate taxes. Under Maryland law, in order to qualify, the owner must register to vote and drive in Maryland—Stark uses a California address for those purposes. On December 24, 2008, the House Ethics Committee began an investigation to Stark using his Maryland residence as his primary residence while claiming to live in San Lorenzo, where neighbors in the area Stark claims to live have never seen him. The home Stark claims to reside and also where he is registered to vote is actually owned and occupied by his in-laws. (SOURCE)

You're right, WoFat -- The only thing we can say about Pete Stark is that he's a Democrat.
