The DCCC is also hitting Republicans for -- gasp -- allowing Republican primary voters to choose their own candidates, without a pre-determined vetting process. My article today explains the situation in detail: the DCCC pointed out that NRCC Executive Director Guy Harrison directly stated that Republicans do not vet their candidates, resulting in individuals with "disturbing backgrounds, legal problems, and extreme views." These disturbing backgrounds include the spurious accusations against Tom Ganley in Ohio's 13th Congressional district, where a woman claimed she was sexually assaulted by Ganley despite the fact that her accusations don’t match up with any other witness accounts. Ganley runs northeast Ohio’s Crime Stoppers program and has received the FBI’s highest civilian award.
It's clear that Dems are on the defensive, but covering their losses by launching baseless claims against Republicans are a sure-fire sign that they're getting desperate.
