Stand by Holmes

The right wing of the Republican Party is urging Nevada County voters to “Stand with Congressman Doolittle,” presumably by voting for him in the June primary. I guess that means they’d like us to “stand” alongside Jack Abramoff as he awaits his sentencing, and line up with Tom DeLay as he prepares for his upcoming trial date?

Mike Holmes is the moderate Republican alternative to the ultra-conservative Mr. Doolittle. Why not “stand” against the corruption and cronyism that Doolittle represents, and vote for Holmes on June 6? Isn’t it time the citizens of this county had responsible representation?
