Karen Harrington Outraises Debbie Wasserman Schultz By 2-1 Margin

By Javier Manjarres

It appears that Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz is in deeper trouble than we once thought- Wasserman Schultz’s Republican congressional opponent Karen Harrington has just doubled her up in the 7/26-9/30 fundraising period.

According to the latest FEC reports that had to be filed by 10/15, Harrington raised $712,197.57, and Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz was only able to raise $369,033.65.

These numbers come on the heels of a head-to-head poll released last week that had Harrington a mere 4.5% behind Wasserman Schultz. Wasserman Schultz faced off with Harrington in 2010 and beat her by 22% points. But this is  2012, and voters have had a large dose of who Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz really is, and the failed policies that she really believes in. (Source-Poll Results)

    Karen Harrington Supports Commuting the Life Sentence of Israeli Spy Jonathan Pollard

    Davie, Florida- Republican congressional candidate Karen Harrington traveled to Butner, North Carolina, to meet with a group of Rabbi’s and other Jewish-American leaders, who had organized a trip to the Federal prison where the American-Israeli spy, Jonathan Pollard is serving a life sentence for espionage.

    Harrington wanted to personally meet with Pollard to hear why he feels his sentence should be commuted. Harrington’s scheduled meeting with Pollard lasted 2 hours.

    Pollard told Harrington that he was disappointed that the U.S. had not honored the Israeli request to commute his sentence. Israel is a strong ally of the United States and has requested that the U.S. commute Pollard’s sentence and allow him to live in Israel for the remainder of his life.

    Pollard spoke to Harrington about the plea agreement that was in place that had him only serving approximately 10 years in prison, but that a judge negated the agreement and instead gave him a life sentence. The two discussed his physical condition, in which Pollard said that the medical care in the prison was sub-par, and that prison officials did not respect medical complaints, and discounted these requests as efforts by the inmates to try to get out of incarceration.

    In discussing Karen Harrington’s congressional race, Mr. Pollard came across well versed with her race, and said that Debbie Wasserman Schultz was “godless and a disgrace to the Jewish race.”

    “While I do not condone the criminal acts that Mr. Pollard committed, I feel that our government must take another look at Mr. Pollard’s case, and consider commuting the remaining three years of his 30 year sentence.”-Karen Harrington

    Karen Harrington joins Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Henry Kissinger and other ranking Israeli and American officials in asking that Jonathan Pollard’s sentence be commuted.

      Wow, that’s a nicely lying headline: “Karen Harrington Supports Commuting the Life Sentence…”

      Nothing of the sort, if you bother to read and comprehend the article. She said, the the government should “… consider commuting the remaining three years of his 30 year sentence.”

      “..considering commuting..” is a far stretch from “…Supports commuting…”

      Just learned she visited a convicted spy/traitor in prison and called for his release. I am a Republican in her district and she just lost my vote!

  • Leslie

    Debbie W another dumb politician representing us what a joke. Not fit to be even a dog catcher.

    • robert

      she does have her master degree. I think Karen only has her High school degree. Leslie what degree’s do you have

      • Surly Curmudgen

        There are college degrees that put one well behind someone with a high school diploma. In Debbie’s case her performance while on camera puts her behind someone with a certificate of completion from middle school.

      • BoGo

        A BA and a masters in political science. Quite impressive – NOT.

        When I was in undergrad the poli sci majors were laughed at as much as those majoring in Wymyn’s Studies or Afro-American Studies. Those seriously considering politics went the pre-law track.

        A degree from a left leaning university in a field dominated by leftists doesn’t equate to intelligence, but is instead their “Good Housekeeping” seal of indoctrination.
