Scott Murphy (D NY-20) making same mistakes as former opponent did in 2009
Cross posted on Upstate Political Report New York’s 20th congressional district has a huge Republican advantage in party registrations compared to Democrats. The 2006 election season was largely a Democrat year.

If You Have Had ENOUGH, Vote Tedisco! A Message for NY 20th CD Voters
Membership in the House of Representatives is an important job. We are getting a painful reminder of this in 2009.

Scott Murphy (D) thinks that the voters of NY-20 are stupid.
Give as much as you can. That’s a provocative title, to be sure – but after reading this Weekly Standard article that’s the only conclusion that you can draw. Between lying about his opponent’s stance on the stimulus, lying about how he’s not checked out on the Solomon amendment (in NY-20!
