ELIJAH CUMMINGS: Mr. Chairman, seek the WHOLE truth and nothing but the truth in our investigations of the IRS.
But sadly, Issa is still completely unable to do any investigation without being partisan. It most definitely isn't in his DNA.
Here Elijah Cummings and Darrell Issa have a testy exchange over Issa's decision to tell acting IRS Commissioner Danny Werfel he wasn't welcome to this past Wednesday's hearing on the IRS responsibility in handling the implementation of the Affordable Healthcare Act.
Gee, I wonder why Issa didn't want Werfel to appear aside Sarah Hall Ingram, Director of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) Office at the IRS as she was giving her testimony.
However, while Issa may have his supporters (he's got over 100,000 followers on his Twitter account), thanks to the CA Republican Party and GOP in the Golden State being as popular as dog doo-doo, Issa's CA-49 Congressional District is now more situated in San Diego County than before and given SD County voter registration numbers show a competitive voter registration fight over Democrats vs. Republicans, now may be a time to start doing voter registration drives in CA-49 to turn the district into purple, whether by 2014, 2016 or 2018.
Here's the voter registration as of February 2013 by the actual CA-49 Congressional District, which combines parts of San Diego and Orange County. Note the number of Decline-to-State/Independents:
Orange County:Now if you live in or near CA-49 and want a reason to start voter registration drives or take part in them, note that San Diego County Democratic Party has a calendar that keeps track of all activity going on, whether local Democratic club meetings or voter registration drive events: http://www.sddemocrats.org/...
San Diego County:
Darrell Issa has a Democratic challenger in 2014, at least one so far. His name is Dave Peiser and here is his contact information:
Dave Peiser for Congress: http://peiserforcongress.com/The website still needs more updating and we still need to know where Peiser stands so if you desire to have another candidate, start contacting the CA State Democratic Party and the San Diego County Democratic Party to see about getting additional candidates to run in the primary against Darrell Issa.
