If you watch any type of local television, you're likely getting as sick as I am of the political ads. There's not a political commercial that I hate more than the one with Roy Blunt busting out his blue jeans (I'm guess they're a new pair of Wranglers) and playing border patrol. Blunt wants you to know that he'll fight to secure the border and finish the fence -- even if he hasn't accomplished that in the 13 years that he's already spent in Congress.
He's all for legal immigration, just not the illegals. Except if the illegal happens to be his housekeeper.
The Missouri Democratic Party threw out documents yesterday showing Blunt, as Missouri Secretary of State in 1990, tried to help out an illegal immigrant. Hey, good for him. But this smacks of hypocrisy when lined up next to his campaign commercials.
Of course, Blunt's campaign is denying it.
"This person never worked for the Blunts," Blunt campaign spokesman Rich Chrismer told the Star. "She
simply helped out at a couple of church events."
That's not what the woman told the Star. Dora Narvaez told the daily that "she had worked as a housekeeper for the Blunts for several months in 1990."
Who to believe? A woman who wanted political asylum from Nicaragua? Or a slimy politician who will do anything to get re-elected? It's a tough one. Let's let Roy try to convince us one more time.
