As Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, Waxman grilled major league sports players, executive officials under the Bush Administration, and disgraced CEOS like Richard Fuld of Lehman Brothers. He will forever be remembered for forcing the Seven major Tobacco executives to lie under oath. All who appeared before Waxman waxed fearful.
Now, for the first time in over forty years, Waxman has to campaign for his seat, and apparently he does not take too kindly to constituents who review and question him about his record. In a recent “open forum” in the Southern section of the newly-drawn 33rd Congressional District, the Congressman debated his challenger, Independent Bill Bloomfield, in a local Jewish Community Center. From the outset, he appeared apprehensive, even frightened.
Congressman Waxman threatened so many, yet now he feels threatened and entitled to not answer any questions. Waxman loves to attack, but now he cannot defend Himself. His record of taxes, spending, and bullying others has caught up with him.
Waxman is either too weak to remain in office, or he feels that he does not have to earn his keep in Congress.
On November 6th, vote for Bill Bloomfield for the 33rd Congressional District.
