Annette Wagenman: Where is LaMalfa’s decency?

Evil can be the only description for the hit piece from Doug LaMalfa on Joe Montes. This shameless act can only be performed by people completely without conscience or sense of decency.

For those of you who have not seen it, this “mailer” to many voters of District 1, is obviously intended to destroy the reputation of a very commendable man. Joe Montes has never been accused or associated with fraud in any capacity except to condemn it in the courtroom as a judge.

I have known Joe since he was 15 years old when he moved into my family’s home while attending high school. He is the most honest law-abiding man I know. He strives for greatness by helping others help themselves.

This attack on Joe Montes is from our Congressman? This vile assault reveals the character of LaMalfa. They don’t come any “straighter” than Joe.

There has to be a price to pay, and I believe removing him from office is a good start. I pray that others will get to know both LaMalfa and Montes. There is no comparison in quality.
