Lest anyone forget, Rep. James Amann (D-118th) is the Speaker of the House for the Democratic Party in the State House of Representatives.
Yet, Speaker Amann turned his back on the party to support independent ("Connecticut For Lieberman" party) candidate Joe Lieberman for Senater, even AFTER Ned Lamont beat him fair and square in the Democratic Primary.
Why do we even HAVE political parties if our representatives aren't going to stand by the will of the voters? What's the point, James? For someone who has enjoyed the benefits of the Democratic party as Jim Amann has, it's a slap in the face to the majority of Democratic voters that he broke with his party to support a turncoat like Joe Lieberman who brazenly ignored the results of a legal, democratic election.
Lieberman took advantage of a legal loophole to get to run for the same office TWICE in one year. You KNOW this guy was an attorney before he became a career politician.
Yeah, Joe won it. Good for him. Sucking up to the Bush/Cheney cabal all these years has served Lieberman well. At the citizen's expense.
Mr. Amann, your betrayal has been noted.
