EAST BAY CITIZEN. EVERYWHERE SINCE 2009

A Campaign Promise Broken

CONGRESS//15TH DISTRICT/ANALYSIS | What happened last week to Rep. Eric Swalwell is better explained through cinema. Taken from the viewpoint of Swalwell’s large moderate, more well-to-do base in the Tri Valley, Swalwell’s unfortunate utterance of the word and imagery of a “wet dream” last Friday was the moment the young Jedi became his father. Pete Stark, the man who presided over the East Bay for four decades before being beaten last year by Swalwell, might have whispered from his barcalounger, “Eric, I am your father.”

Noooooo!

So, in one brief moment, the rookie congressman reneged on his biggest, most heartfelt, campaign promise from a year ago. After vowing never to embarrass the district with name-calling and truly outlandish behavior, Swalwell became Stark. (Watch the video below.)

The reaction to the phrase was so critical that even the local mainstream media, which has cheered Swalwell unmercifully after the past year, couldn’t look away. Josh Richman of the San Jose Mercury News reached out to Stark, whose comments sounded like last year’s campaign never ended. "I hope I'd have the good taste in all my outbursts not to say something like that, but I guess it gives you the measure of the man," Stark told the newspaper.

Even the San Francisco Chronicle’s Carla Marinucci, who continues to confound many by her rah-rahing for Swalwell, noted the wet dream quote “raised eyebrows.” However, she remained insufferable by also noting a wet dream is a “natural bodily function.”

The Huffington Post suggested Swalwell’s speech may have violated the House rules for decorum, which prohibits members from disparaging each other or using vulgarity within the House of Representatives. Ironically, Republicans used the same rule to sanction Stark for saying President George W. Bush found certain eroticism by sending young men to get their heads "blown off" in Iraq. Swalwell’s behavior while in the people’s house has faced criticism in the past. ABC News noted this summer that Swalwell’s recording of a vote, later uploaded to Vine, violated House rules for the use of electronic devices. In both instances, Swalwell appeared unrepentant.

Tea Party adherents who voted for Swalwell last year will tell you he lied to voters the first time he appeared with Sean Hannity on Fox News last January and strongly-backed gun control. But, whether Swalwell ever communicated a pro-gun stance may have been part of their collective imagination and exploited by his brand of moderate politics that struggles to believe in everything and nothing at all. However, making national news for saying weird and nasty things is, by far, the number one reason conservatives in the district hated Stark and why even some liberals secretly wished he would go away.

After last week, Swalwell became exactly what he repeatedly told thousands, from Livermore to Hayward, he would never become—an embarrassment to his district.

Oh big deal. The man was defending Obama's health care and went after the Republicans.

He gets bonus points with me. Leave the guy alone and get over it.

You've got my vote, Eric. Way to go!

While I am a Corbett supporter, I do agree that this is no big deal. There are A LOT more vulgar things that could have been said. Yes, this is not a proper thing, but it's really not worth getting upset over.

In general, I agree that this is not a big deal. Politicians should be encouraged to speak off the cuff and say what's on their mind even if it offends some people--otherwise, it ends up being a cut-and-paste exercise where they spout political platitudes that say nothing at all (This is what Swalwell normally does anyway).

BUT this is a textbook example of Swalwell just being sort of a juvenile frat boy who is unfit to serve in Congress. It's not as though this was an off-the-cuff remark or something that was said in the heat of the moment. This was scripted and planned. And when someone makes an off-color comment in the heat of passion (as was Stark's style), I have no inclination to judge them, but when someone deliberately plans to say something that is juvenile and silly and does not enhance the conversation at all, then it becomes clear to me that they're just trying to act like a frat boy and draw attention to themselves.

Keep it up - the guy is a joker wishy washy player incompetent mannequin buffoon!

You guys are full of shit. Even when he preaches your values you still ridicule him. In your eyes there is NOTHING that he can do that you favor. If he says 'up,' then it's 'down.'

Been there and done that with loser Stark. Go ahead and put all your marbles in Corbett's basket. At the end of the day she's going to come up empty like the loser she is.

You've got my vote, congressman! Keep up the good work that has eluded this district for the past forty years.

" "I hope I'd have the good taste in all my outbursts not to say something like that, but I guess it gives you the measure of the man," Stark told the newspaper.

Oh PLEEZE.... just go back to your nap Pete. Your mouth ran off so many times, reasonable people seriously thought you had lost your marbles.
That is why you were defeated by a "rookie".

What your campaign needed most was a sock to place in your mouth.

4 out of 6 of these posts are from Swalwell staffers. You can guess which ones. They must be scared of losing in 2014.

I think this comment got more love for Swalwell from democrats and progressives. Politically, it helped him gain credibility as "speaking his mind." It also tells Dems that he is a team player.

I realize this is not the proper site, but I want to know why EBC is not covering the Hayward School Board meetings? There is so much questionable action going on there that the public needs to know about.

Swalwell=flip-flop, flip-flop, flip-flop, flip-flop, flip-flop, flip-flop, flip-flop. What a joke and an embarrassment for a congress person. We need a woman with some class. Ellen Corbett in 2014.

Agree Swalwell showed no class here. Voted for him once, but never again.

Ellen Whorbett? I don't think so.

The learning curve would be way too much for this child.

So the sexist tea bagger is back and supporting Swalwell. All the more reason to back Ellen. She has far more class and wouldn't make the flip-flops or mistakes Swalwell has made. What does Swalwell stand for? Nothing is the answer!

Eric made another huge mistake--inept might be too kind a word.

I'll vote for the congressman just because he isn't Corbett. My neighbors will be doing the same.

Anyone who would propose naming the Bay Bridge after that slime Willie Brown has no right to represent me in the United States Senate. She's another slick and crafty politician.

My mistake. I meant to say United States House of Representatives.

Eric makes too many mistakes and so do his staffers and supporters. That's why my neighbors and I will be voting for someone with more class--Ellen Corbett in 2014.

Ellen Corbett trolls for dirty politicians and then names bridges after them. Next stop for her--sending her home for good.

E in Eric stands for experience!
R in Eric stands for responsibility!
I in Eric stands for integrity!
C in Eric stands for courage!

What you see is what you get.


E stands for eccentric!
L stands for loser!
L stands for lightweight!
E stands for ego!
N stands for nothing!

What you see is definitely what you get.

Eric is corrupt. Just ask the valley developers who bought him! He has made mistake after mistake in a short period of time, while constantly changing his mind. Flip-flops like a fish on issues and can't even talk without stumbling. I will be voting for Ellen because she cares about the issues that most of us in the new District care about. I wish SWALWELL STAFFERS would stay off this string.

I know many of us voted for Swallwell against Stark, but will vote for Ellen because she has more experience and is a much nicer person than either of the above. She also doesn't flip flop on issues.

Ellen is bought and paid for by the unions. Names bridges after corrupt politicians and is too inexperienced. Like Obama, Swalwell has evolved.

Really wish CORBETT STAFFERS would stay of this string.

Perhaps you haven't been following all the misadventures and mistakes the inexperienced kid has been making while in office. You better go back and reread the Citizen this year. Ellen Corbett it is in 2014 and I'm a resident of the District not a staffer like I'm sure you are.

I've been following the misadventures and mistakes of inexperienced Missy Corbett while she's been in office. [Naming that bridge? If she only had a brain!] You better go back and reread the 'Chronicle' and other unbiased publications. Missy it definitely isn't in 2014, and I'm a resident of the district not a shill for her like I know you are.

You are definitely a shill for Swalwell if not a staffer. He's corrupt, lacks integrity and flip, flops. He was lucky to run against Stark last time, but we in the District love Ellen Corbett and will vote for her just like we did for Senate twice.

You are definitely a shill for Corbett and a staffer. She's corrupt, lacks integrity, and constantly flip flops. Eric will destroy her if she runs against him, which remains to be seen; we in the district love congressman Swalwell and will vote for him again just like we did the last time.

You'll never get the last word with me!

You are definitely a Swalwell STAFFER. To my knowledge no Corbett staffer has ever bothered to post on here, but Taveras has accused Swalwell staffers of actively posting on here many times. I do like Ellen because of her pro consumer, pro senior, pro family and pro environmental voting record but don't even know where her office is located. Tell me what Swallwell has done besides taking money from developers and flip-flop on issues while making more mistakes in a year than any other congressperson in the bay area.

I'm a Senior living in Hayward and Ellen Corbett has a 100% record when it comes to our issues. She's been a wonderful Senator and would make a better representative for Seniors than Mr. Swalwell in my opinion.

You are definitely a Corbett STAFFER. Accusations run rampant. I accuse you of stealing the Lindbergh baby! Big deal. Anyone can ACCUSE anyone of anything. Congressman Swalwell has stood up to the Republicans, most recently supporting Obama's health care initiative. He gets things done for the district.

Corbett likes to rename bridges after slick, dirty, and corrupt ex-politicians. That's her priority.

The bottom line is it's a new district. Anyone and his mother's brother's uncle's next door neighbor's second cousin five times removed can pump one up and tear the other down. Corbett is manna from heaven; she's the devil incarnate. Swalwell is the scourge of the earth; he's the next messiah.

Fact is that it's a new district, and it favors incumbent Congressman Swalwell, whom many of respect and admire.

You don't, so vote your way and I'll vote mine--14 long months to go. In the end I predict Eric will be re-elected because he's doing a good job and there are more of us who are willing to give him the benefit of any doubt [if there are any] then to condemn him.

My family and I live in the Valley and have followed Swallwell closely since his Dublin City Council days. He definitely sold out the Valley to developers and many of us have asthma due to all the development out here. We will vote for Ellen because of her strong environmental record. My child has asthma so bad, he needs an inhaler.

Anon 3:23=Swalwell STAFFER--he/she has never denied it. Since he/she is a staffer posting, he/she believes everyone else must be a staffer also. What a doofus! Swalwell didn't win because people liked him, he won because of Stark. I voted for neither in the primary, but voted for, don't feint, Swalwell in the General. I've regretted it ever since and will cast my vote for Ellen Corbett in 2014. You can vote for your BOSS, but you better start looking for meaningful work soon. There are many people like me and that's what has you so scared.

Well, folks, we're dealing with another crazy one. I'll have to let the Swalwell folks know to pay me since 'I'm on their payroll.' Too bad someone forgot to tell me that. I would have declared on my taxes. Oh, well. Maybe if Eric has openings in the future I'll apply. In the mean time, you really are living in a dream world.

Very nice of you to defend your lady over getting into bed with sleazy politicians with whom she trolls, and then names bridges after them. Oh, wait. You can't touch that because the truth just stood up and bit you in the ass! That and much more is the Albatross that hangs around your lady's neck.

Swalwell will win re-election based on the results he's achieved for this district. It won't be Hayward, Castro Valley etc. that determine the election it will be the folks way, way out yonder. They have much more in common with him than Corbett. You're right. I am scared of you. It's folks like you who have what passes for their brains firing on empty who tell one lie after another. I also have faith in the public at large to get it right, just like they did the last time. So sorry, kid, no cigar for you. At best you're blowing hot air and at worst, well, I really can't print that here.

Also, bone up on your spelling. For your use of the word, the correct spelling is 'faint.' Your spelling has a whole other meaning. Time for school!

Well, there are a lot of crazy people out there that will vote for and elect Ellen Corbett. Or, maybe it's you who is the crazy one for supporting Swalwell. We will see in 2014. I'm hoping it's Ellen who's elected, you're hoping for Mr. Flip-Flop. Remember he'll make a lot more mistakes before the election.

I sure as hell HOPE there are no Corbett staffers wasting their time on here. She needs to get visible and fast. I understand she's busy doing great things in the State Senate but there's no reason she shouldn't have a campaign website and facebook page.

Come on, Ellen. You can win this but you will have to run a high-energy, top-tier campaign to do it. Swalwell will stop at nothing to keep his seat.

4:54 makes his case very well, and definitely speaks for me.

I agree that Ellen can and should win, but needs to start a strong campaign very soon. She has very strong support in most of the District where she is Senator right now. I hope she's making appearances in the other part of the Congressional District and will start having fundraisers there over the holidays. I know she had one in Dublin already. She is so strong a challenger that Swalwell staffers are scared of her and that's why they spend their time blogging like 4:54.

Comedy Tonight best describes the 'desperate hopes' of the above.

Comedy tonight best describes Swalwell staffers panic and desperation trying to cover up the kid's mistakes and flip-flops.

The person above forgot to capitalize the 'T' in Tonight. These Corbett folks sure are uneducated.

Hey, when you're claim to fame is trolling for corrupt and dirty pols. such as slimy Willie Brown and then bending over backward to name the Oakland Bay Bridge for him, what do you expect?

If you like what Ellen has done at the local level, certainly send her to Washington, where she'll do more of the same.

Oh, and to the 'flip-flop' troll, you better believe she is in cahoots with developers. When she was on the San Leandro City Council she made quite a few deals with and for them. She was the one they often would seek out when they wanted to get a 'pass' on their projects. Public record.

To the old woman who said that she should 'learn to bake,' I agree, but only if she gets cookie cutters in the shape of old Boss Brown and the Bay Bridge. After all, why not cook up that which you know so well, and boy has she been cooking this rotten stuff up in Sac. town.

Anon 7:00 you have to stop pretending you are someone you are not. Your style is easily recognized and it's obvious you are the same staffer trying to spread lies like Ellen being in cahoots with developers. That is beyond shameful! Ellen Corbett has a 100% environmental voting record with the Sierra Club. Eric has supported all the developments that came to him after contributing money to his campaign. You can find the newspaper articles and check out some of the past Citizen articles. But since you shill for him, you already knew that and are trying to cover up the corruption of Eric FLIP-FLOP Swalwell. It's so shameful your boldness is laughable.

Nice try, dufous, but you are the Corbett shill. No doubt about it and on her payroll.

Ellen's record of shilling for developers while on the San Leandro city council is a fact. Nice try to pawn off the 'East Bay Citizen'--which is in bed with Corbett--as the 'honest' broker to consult as to Ellen's 'honesty.'

Since you troll for Corbett you better do your homework about how she'll no doubt try to rename some national monuments for folks such as Richard Nixon or the George Bushes. Hey, I only know what she's done a the state level, and since she likes to do this for crooked ex-politicians, makes perfect sense to all of us that she'll do more of the same if we were to send her to Washington. Luckily, the public is more astute, and it won't be happening in this lifetime.

Also, you need to get over 'flip-flop,' whatever the hell that means. [You're the only one who does.] These days when politicians have a change of heart, ideology, or learn new facts on the ground, it's called EVOLUTION. I'm making it up? Just ask a certain fellow named Barack Obama!

Dog, you more than have your work cut out for you by hitching your cart to the loser named Ellen Corbett.

Never worked for a politician in my life Mr Swalwell staffer. If you don't believe the citizen go back and check the Daily Review. He took money from the developers and then voted for their projects.He also had a horrible voting record with environmental groups because of it. Eric is as corrupt as he is a flip-flopper. This will all be pointed out in the campaign. Ellen Corbett has a 100% voting record with the Sierra Club and because of this I will be volunteering on her campaign. This will be the first time for me helping any politician, but I'm tired of him saying one thing and doing another. I also voted for him last election and blame myself for thinking he might be different than other politicians. What a huge mistake that I feel an obligation to rectify. Don't worry, you will have your job till next November. Gives a liar like you a chance to find another job. Keep posting for the corrupt, mistake prone flip-flopper till then. It's amusing to read your rants and lies.

Love the way the loser above justifies her lies and spin.

Oh, and the way that she deals with the 'facts,' is great too.

Hey, if she doesn't work for a politician I don't believe the other person does either. I take them at their word.

My vote is for WHOEVER bakes the best cookies in the shape of the Willie Brown Bridge. And just to prove that I'm unbiased, Ellen starts out with 100 bonus points since she named the venerable landmark after that corrupt, sexist, oily pimp.

Anon above- once again you're pretending to be someone you're not. You are the same loser who's on eric's staff and shill's for him. If you think anyone really cares about a bridge as opposed to eric's corruption and mistake prone flip-flops, I have a bridge to sell you. The only people who seem to care are the extreme right-wing tea party people. Many of us moderates will vote for Ellen Corbett. You and the extremes can vote for Swalwell one last time.

8:54 cracks me up. If he's not a staffer he's a loyalist and a right winger that's for sure. He keeps trying to throw shit against the wall to see if any will stick in order to deflect the faults of his candidate. Besides taking money from developers and then voting for their developments(we live in Dublin), he also has taken money from the big corporations and voted their way in Congress. Ellen Corbett, in the State Senate, has been one of the strongest votes for clean air and the environment, as well as one of the strongest votes against the big corporations and for us consumers which my family welcomes. We welcome someone like Ms. Corbett who cares about the air we breathe and having pro consumer regulations put on the run-away excesses of mega corporations. Thank you Ellen for your service. Bye-Bye Mr. Swallwell

10:17 and 11:13 are one in the same loser. She doesn't care about the dirty and corrupt Corbett. Talk about the hyperbole that she 'throws against the wall.' All of it is pure fluff and fantasy.

Yes, little girl, the public does care about Ellen's corruption of selling out our public landmarks for dirty, sexist, and corrupt Willie Brown politicians. She was a shill for developers while on the San Leandro City Council and is trying to do penance in the legislature. Too little, way too late. I guess your lady has 'evolved' on development issues. Hmm, coming back to bite both you and her in the ass!

The demographics of the new district all work against Corbett, a FACT you are about to learn in the next 13 months. Perhaps she'll put you on the take when she continues to troll for developers as a paid lobbyist. That's about all she's good for, taking the take. Not to worry, little girl, the bridge will be kept front and center to remind voters about how sleazy and corrupt Ellen Corbett is. She is what she votes. The only air Corbett cares about is all the hot air she generates renaming bridges and doing the developers' bidding. Talk about adding to CO2 gasses, Ellen.

It's BYE BYE Ellen very shortly! We've got a rocker reserved for you on the porch to keep company with ol' Pete!!

Hey 11:45 -What a loser you are! I wrote 10:17 but don't have a clue about 11:13. I guess there are a few of us who disagree with you extremes and most of us moderates can care less about a bridge name. The fact that it bothers you so much shows your shallowness. Tell your boss, Flip-flop Swalwell to put in some bills that mean something to those of us that work for a living. Name one thing has he done where the bill originated from the "corrupt" kid. You need to stop lying about development because people know that Swalwell is the developers " wet dream". They bought and paid for him long ago and he doesn't deny it. Ellen Corbett has support from environmental groups all across the board and doesn't hire staffers that lie for her. She also has support from consumer groups, women's groups, senior groups, working families and moderates like myself. Your candidate has you, tea party radicals and the extremes. There are not enough of you and you are panicking because you know I'm right. Ellen Corbett for Congresswoman in 2014--you go girl! P.S. I'm a male

Easy does it, grandma. Hold onto your Polident. No need to get your knickers in a twist.

Facts are facts. One, you are the only poster here who is trying to pretend to be someone else. Your style, or lack thereof, gives you away each and every time. Two, your use of English and grammar are atrocious--look it up in a dictionary. Guessing you're hillbilly stock; native white trailer trash. Three, Corbett is a ho for developers; she practiced this while on the San Leandro City Council. Quite honestly--a term that is foreign to you--I could care less that you disagree. FACTS ARE FACTS, and there are minutes from all the meetings in question. It's called the public record. They will be used against your lady in the fall campaign. She will run on her selective record; the Swalwell folks will make sure the WHOLE record is used so as not to let the district's residents forget. Four, we know that you are a paid staffer for Missy's campaign. Your job is to spin, but granny, you don't know which end is up. Need to woman-up and explain which issues the congressman has 'evolved' on. None, you say? We get it. You like to bandy about a term that you hope will gain traction. No air in that trial balloon, granny. Try again. Of course, the president, VP, and other politicians have evolved their positions on many issues, the most recent being gay marriage. Again, the congressman? No. He seems to be pretty consistent in his votes. In fact, he has only missed a single one, procedural, on the day he took his seat in the capitol. And that was because he was attending to his constituents. Five, I am retired and don't need to work for anyone, unlike the unemployed loser you are who shills on this feed in the early hours of the morning. Six, panic you say? I'm having fun--and at your expense. Taking on morons, or the female equivalent in your case only, is therapeutic. Seven, yes, granny, the public cares very much about the bridge vote. This is an albatross which we'll make sure hangs around your lady's neck like a lead balloon. It is reflective of her go along-get along, good-old boys network to which she belongs. She has missed so many votes, first in the assembly and now in the senate that it defies all reason. The public cares very much about what votes she taken, how many she has missed, and for whom she is shilling--most recently ol' Boss Willie Brown--and we'll make sure that the public knows and is reminded of this. Eight, you a moderate? You wouldn't know the definition of moderation if it stood up and shook hands with you. No, you're obviously a BBDB who wishes that she could grow a set of balls. Wrong chromosomes, granny. This is fun. Who knew that the Corbett folks were all fat from the neck up; must take after their leader.

Temper Temper 7:42 look in the mirror---what a shill for your boss Swalwell. Yes, facts are facts. One, you are the only poster here who is trying to pretend to be someone else. Your style, or lack thereof, gives you away each and every time. Those were my words I used on you--you seem to lack honesty which doesn't surprise me since you try and spin like a top. You must be dizzy as well as an extreme conservative.
You are such a troll you make me laugh--truly pathetic. If you can, name one bill your CORRUPT candidate authored(not one he signed on to). He's sure to lose and that's why you are getting so angry. Who's going to support him when the record comes out, and it surely will during the campaign, of how he voted for the developers after taking their money. Or how he took all the CORPORATE MONEY and voted against the CONSUMERS like the people who buy and pay for things. I am male but will call you out for being a sexist . With people like you supporting him he will surely lose to Ellen Corbett. Thanks for helping---what a doofus!

Swalwell=flip-flop, flip-flop, flip-flop, flip-flop, flip-flop, flip-flop, flip-flop. What a joke and an embarrassment for a congress person. We need a woman with some class. Ellen Corbett in 2014.

Well, we can see that the Corbett people continue their lies and running scared strategy to trash themselves and then blame it on Swalwell. Truly pathetic and beyond scraping the bottom of the barrel.

First rule of politics: when your opponent resorts to crude, immoral, and yes unethical tactics, simply extend him/her more rope to hang himself/herself.

Corbett's people are ensuring that she is all but swinging in the wind.

My name is Johnson Fields and I have known the Swalwell family for more than 30 years. It seems to me that the only reason Ms. Corbett is contemplating a run for congress is because she has nowhere else to go due to term limits. Obviously it is her right, or indeed anyone else's, to run for congress. However, all that I have read here is innuendo, distortions, and in some cases, outright lies. Of course I am biased for Eric, and see him doing the best job he can. I am not aware of any 'mistakes' he has made. I simply believe this to be dirty sour grapes being lobbed against him and for no reason other than he won his election against Mr. Stark. This name-calling and threats of 'my candidate is better than yours,' etc. only seeks to turn off voters or potential voters. Whoever is behind these attacks does no favors for their professed candidate.

Anon 8:30 You were the first person to start the mudslinging and sexist remarks about Ellen Corbett because you are a staffer or shill for Swalwell. This I agree with you on:

First rule of politics: when your opponent resorts to crude, immoral, and yes unethical tactics, simply extend him/her more rope to hang himself/herself.

Swalwell's people are ensuring that he is all but swinging in the wind by 1 person who is a troll posting over half the e-mails on this and other articles with lies and sexist comments. Thanks for helping Ellen get elected. LOL

I would agree that it was the Swalwell people who started the sexist comments and the lies about Ellen Corbett probably because they couldn't defend their candidate taking money from the developers and the big corporations and then voting the way they wanted. Shame on Eric.
Not a staffer, but someone in the District

So say the Corbett stooges.

When you got to vote be sure to remember the name Elen 'If you want me to name a bridge after a dirty, corrupt, sexist, oily politician' Corbett. I'm your girl.

Ellen, the Willie Brown Ho, Corbett. Our motto: If you like what's she's done in Sacramento, just wait until she gets to Washington! Today the Willie Brown Bridge. Tomorrow the George Bush Smithsonian and Dick Nixon Washington Monument.

Don't believe me; go by Ellen's record. Talk about a bridge too far.

Well what do you know? It's the Swalwell troll, stooge, shill, staffer(pick one cause there's only one). Remember the name Eric " the corrupt flip-flopper" Swalwell if you want to vote for the developers wet dream or the mega-corporations best friend.

Since Eric has authored no significant legislation in Washington, I'll take Ellen Corbett who has authored significant legislation to help the environment, women, consumers, seniors, children, education, etc.

As one of the prime authors of the legislation that renamed it, we've got a bridge to sell you: Willie L. Brown, which replaced our beautiful and historic SF-Oakland Bay Bridge.

Let's all sign the above petition to save BART!

Once more the anti women sexist, anti union troll has tried to
takeover the ebcitizen. He's only made the last 3 posts
which brings him up to ~60% of the comments on here. What
a waste of time, but he is an army-- OF ONE. You're giving
your boss Eric " the corrupt flip-flopper" Swalwell a bad name
if you lose the women's vote for him by a bigger margin. Calling
someone a whore should be beneath a Swalwell shill but you
are too much of male chauvinist to care. Ellen Corbett in 2014.

There go the Corbett people taking shots at themselves AGAIN and then blaming Congressman Swalwell.

DESPERATE, PATHETIC and so BORING!

7:59 you are the one taking shots at her and now you are trying to lie about it. What a sleaze! Your words are so revealing your style! LOL

These are the type of things Ellen Corbett constantly
does for her constituents and why we like her so much.

Dear Friends,

This coming Monday, October 7th, I will be hosting a Senior Scam Stopper Seminar at the Pleasanton Senior Center for local senior citizens and their families. Even though this event is focused on seniors, anyone interested in becoming more educated on how to prevent fraud and scams is welcome to attend.

This event, free and open to the public, will feature presentations on how people can protect themselves from scams. Come learn from experts on how to safeguard against fraud in home repair, insurance, identity theft, finances and more.

Senior Scam Stopper Seminar

Monday, October 7th, 2013
9:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.

Pleasanton Senior Center
5353 Sunol Boulevard
Pleasanton, CA 94566

This important seminar will provide valuable information to help seniors and their families protect themselves from being defrauded. As active and important members of our families and local communities, senior citizens deserve to be honored and respected, so it is vital that they are offered the necessary tools to ensure that their personal safety, home and other hard earned assets are protected.

I sincerely hope that you or any friends and family members will be able to attend. I would like to thank the California Contractors State License Board for its assistance in organizing this event.

As always, I welcome your feedback and look forward to continuing to work on your behalf in the California State Senate.

Sincerely,

Ellen M. Corbett
Senate Majority Leader

Anon7:59 it is you who is desperate, pathetic and boring
and a sexist.

The truth always bears repeating.

There go the Corbett people taking shots at themselves AGAIN and then blaming Congressman Swalwell.

DESPERATE, PATHETIC and so BORING!

These are the type of things Eric Swalwell constantly
does for his constituents and why we like him so much.

Seniors

I am committed to protecting our seniors and preserving the programs that have kept so many healthy and out of poverty. I support preserving and strengthening Medicare, and I believe that turning Medicare into a voucher system would hurt seniors and raise barriers to care. In Congress, I will work to preserve and protect Social Security, for example by raising the cap on earnings subject to the payroll tax, and strengthen Medicare to protect patients and support the physicians who care for them.

I strongly oppose using the Chained Consumer Price Index (CPI) to calculate cost-of-living adjustments (COLA) for Social Security Benefits. While the budgetary challenges we face are serious, we should not be balancing the budget on the backs of seniors.

What I am Doing for You

I signed on to House Resolution 34, which expresses the sense of Congress that Chained CPI should not be used to calculate cost-of-living-adjustments for Social Security benefits.

I sent a letter asking the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to assume the Sustainable Growth Rate will be fixed when it determines physician payment rates for Medicare Advantage.

I voted against H. Con. Res. 25, the budget proposed by Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan. This budget would end Medicare as we know it, repeal the benefits of the Affordable Care Act – including preventive services for seniors – impose drastic spending cuts, and give massive tax reductions for corporations and upper-income persons.

I cosponsored H.R. 1029, No Loopholes in Social Security Taxes Act. This bill would increase the amount of income subject to the Social Security tax from $113,700 to $250,000.

Corbett staffer, you are an abomination even to Ellen herself.

That you would malign the congressman's good work, disparage your lady in the process, and then attempt to blame it on Swalwell supporters in the community is outrageous.

It should be illegal!

These are the type of things Ellen Corbett constantly
does for her constituents and why we like her so much.
Show me Swalwell bills that he authored--not just signed
onto that were put into law--Wait you Can't because the kid
is a joke and not respected--Your boss has done nothing
on his own--you should be embarrassed to be a staffer!

Swalwell staffer, you are a sexist and an abomination even to

consumer, working family, children, education, etc. pales in
comparison to Ellen Corbetts.

You think you're pretty slick, Corbett staffer. He hasn't been in congress for even one year. Your boss has been in Sac. town FOREVER. So you don't get to pick and choose. This is but a small sampling of the legislation the congressman has authored and been associated with.

To the swalwell staffer--name one bill that he sponsored or
authored that was signed into law. YOU STILL HAVEN"T DONE
THAT! It's easy to sign onto a bill that someone else wrote or was the original author. He's weak, corrupt and flip-flops on
issues like the Senior issues.

I hate to get into the middle of a dogfight, and at the risk of
being called a staffer, I like Ellen because of this bill. I'm a
retired senior. This is critical to us with diminished eyesight.

CORBETT BILL REQUIRING 12-POINT FONT PRESCRIPTION DRUG LABELS ADVANCES TO GOVERNOR

September 11, 2013
SB 205 Builds Upon Previous Patient-Centered Legislation by Senator Corbett

SACRAMENTO – Earlier today, the California State Senate approved legislation authored by Senate Majority Leader Ellen M. Corbett (D-East Bay) that requires pharmacists to print specific items on a prescription label in at least 12 point font.

The Board of Pharmacy (Board) was required to standardize the prescription drug label to make it more patient-centered following the Governor’s signature of SB 472 in 2007 by Senator Corbett. As part of that process, a 2009 Board-sponsored survey found that 60% of participants that responded believed that larger or bolder print would make prescription labels easier to read.

“SB 205 is urgently needed legislation since it will help keep patients safe and may potentially save lives by requiring larger font on prescription labels. This patient-centered bill requires that the most important items on labels appear in 12 point font: patient’s name, drug’s name and strength, directions for use and the condition for which the drug was prescribed,” Senator Corbett said. “We know that pharmacies are already able to provide this service since consumers may now request that their labels appear in 12-point font. SB 205 would simply require larger font, instead of making the easier-to-read size available only upon request. I remain hopeful that Governor Jerry Brown will appreciate the critical importance of helping Californians with vision challenges read the important information that appears on their prescription labels.”

California’s population over 60 years of age will increase by over 110 percent from 1990 to 2020, according to the California Department of Aging.

SB 205 is supported by the California Alliance for Retired Americans, California Pan-Ethnic Health Network, California State Retirees / Chapter 1, California Commission on Aging, Paramedics Plus, Vision y Compromiso and Pharmacists Planning Services, Inc.

You Corbett staffers are so lame that you can't see the forest for the trees--look up the meaning and learn something new. Let's see it hasn't even been one year yet since the congressman took office. Nice try in attempting to manipulate the legislative session schedule to your own liking. No cigar, chump.

Oh, but do let me give credit where it is due for your lady regarding the crown jewel of her legislative accomplishments:

RENAMING THE BAY BRIDGE THE WILLIE L. BROWN BRIDGE!

How did she like that signing ceremony? Hey, now a reality.

I know the truth is a bitch--any resemblances here?--when it comes back to bite you in the ass!

Remember SWALWELL STAFFER your candidate and boss
hasn't written any legislation of his own much less getting any
signed into law. He has gone on right-wing talk shows and made a FOOL of himself like you are doing with your SEXIST
and RACIST talk. Thank you for helping Ellen win in 2014
because you are supporting ERIC the corrupt flip-flopper.

that should have said like the Staffer was doing with his
SEXIST and RACIST talk( in his posting for his boss)

Temper, temper little Corbett staffers.

Keep telling lies and blaming the congressman for your own attacks, innuendos, and outright lies. You do Ellen oh so proud.

You are assuming I'm a Corbett staffer, which I'm not.
I know you don't believe that because you are a Swalwell
staffer. I am a supporter of Ellen though and live in the
district. Keep up your racist and sexist talk because it will only
help Ellen get elected. I can't help it if your candidate can't get
anything done while my candidate is getting bills passed and
signed on environmental, senior, children,women,consumer,
privacy and education. It must gall you that your candidate
flip-flops on issues so much he can't get any respect. LOL

We KNOW that you are paid Corbett staffer. Just fess up and let the sun shine in. Now it's 'racism' that's being invoked. Interesting. Still trying to throw stuff and make it stick. To date you've never once mentioned anything by name that our congressman has 'flip-flopped' on. This must be a new word for you while you continue teething. Too bad its meaning is non-existent here. We tend to think that it is you who are flip-flopping, literally. Must be driving you nuts doing all the backward summersaults and still landing thump, face-down. Amazing.

We especially are in awe of Ms. Corbett's triumphant legislative accomplishment--renaming the Bay Bridge for a sexist, chauvinistic, oily, corrupt, and treacherous good ol' boy politician--WILLIE L. BROWN, JR. BRIDGE!

Her crowning achievement, which perfectly defines her and her many years in so many offices.

Oh, true dat, for absolutamente even!!!!!!

Just because you are a staffer, don't believe everyone else is.
Ms. Corbett has had tremendous success in getting bills
passed and into law that benefit the poor and middle class
families, that she initiated. Mr. Swalwell=0

Mr. Swalwell did vote for developments after taking developers money while on the Dublin Council which led to higher asthma
rates in the area. Most would call that corrupt, but you just
cheer him on. I guess you don't have children with asthma.

As far as flip-flopping goes he taken so many different
positions on so many topics he can't even remember them all.
Just check out the local papers and the ebcitizen. Tavares
even did more than one article on his flip-flops. He told people
he was for the chained CPI, then he was against it. He told
people he was for changes to Social Security, then he was
against them. Not a good track record on consumer bills after
he took corporate money either. Flip-flop, flip-flop, flip-flop.

So while my candidate is getting bills signed that benefit
consumers, women, seniors, working families, environment,
education, and privacy--your candidate is taking money from developers and voting their way, and money from corporations
and voting their way. LOL at your desperate attempt to please
your master. Oh, and the bridge thing--no one cares except
you. Look for another job if you have any skills besides spin.

Aqui---nobody gives a darn about a bridge that all the Dems.
voted for and all of us will still call the bay bridge anyway.

I suspect Swalwell's staffer or shill at anonymous 5:28 is a racist and a sexist. Knock it off----it's not cool. If you keep this up you are helping Corbett.

An excellent summation, 5:28. It bears reposting for the trolls who are against our congressman no matter what he says, does, or believes.

Oh and not every 'Democrat' voted for the bridge. You better believe it matters to voters, which you'll find out the hard way very shortly.

Oh, true dat, for absolutamente even!!!!!!

Muy Aqui--just as the president, VP and others have evolved on different issues so do others, including members of congress. Happens all the time.

What a bunch of Corbett douches who have nothing to go after. Amazing.

So the Swalwell staffer writes another of his 50 or so e-mails.
Then tells himself what a wonderful e-mail it was pretending
he is someone else but his style gives him away. He uses
sexist and racist tones in his e-mails thinking he's helping
Swalwell, but is really helping Ellen Corbett instead. It's really
laughable that he has no shame and is so caveman and
backwards.

As far as flip-flopping goes Swalwell taken so many different
positions on so many topics he can't even remember them all.
Just check out the local papers and the ebcitizen. Tavares

Muy Aqui--Oh, true dat, for absolutamente even!!!!!!

The Swalwell shill is just helping Ellen Corbett with his racist
and sexist attacks. A large majority of the population rejects
this old school mentality and Tea Party thinking. The fact that
you are backing Swalwell assures that I will vote for Ellen this
time. We definitely need more women in Congress. Maybe
things might actually get done instead of mud slinging.

To the single poster of the last three comments, AKA as One-In-the-Same, welcome back, ho. You were gone the past few days. We all had dared hoped that you'd gone away to baking school and added a little arsenic to your old lace cookies. Oh well, we'll keep giving better than we get, since you lie about 'racism,' 'sexism', Missy, and all the rest. Hell, you steal my excellent Spanish and can't write a word of your own without even knowing what it means. You are a pimp for Missy and a shill for old Stark, whom you voted for before but would like us to believe otherwise. It is fun vanquishing you, since you know nothing about anything. Hell, it's more fun putting you in your place than cross word puzzles. Especially giving you lessons in evolution--aka flip flop. Little girl, get ready to cry buckets of bocu tears, since you and your lady are going to be kicked straight to the curb. As we say in politics, payback is a bitch, bitch. Bring it on!

Oh, true dat, for absolutamente even!!!!!!

You are back Swalwell troll--hoped to see the last of you. Glad
to see you are still posting racist and sexist comments. LOL
Thanks for helping Ellen Corbett you doofus staffer for Eric.

So the Swalwell staffer writes another of his 50 or so e-mails.
Then tells himself what a wonderful e-mail it was pretending
he is someone else but his style gives him away. He uses
sexist and racist tones in his e-mails thinking he's helping

Let's all here it for the super legislator who gets things done, Missy! She's HOrrible!

She'll always be known as the key sponsor of renaming the Bay Bridge for her pimp, ol' Boss Willie 'I'm a sexist ho' Brown.

We can play that game, too. Ellen is a: sexist, racist, pro-developer shill, inside the beltway whore for the unions, and for good measure, we'll include one that our BBDB Corbett staffer [AKA One in the same] forgot to include against our congressman--she's an atheist.

Too bad you forgot to throw that one up in the air, Corbett staffer--one in the same. So we'll extend it courtesy and throw right back to you and Missy.

Let's all remember our once wonderful bridge that Ellen re-christened for her pimp, ol' Boss Brown the next time we think of her. After all, you are what you vote for.

Ellen is a racist.

The Bay Area is facing a needless economic crisis. The "cooling-off period" in the dispute between BART management and labor expires for good Oct. 11, and all signs point to a lengthy BART strike.

A prolonged strike would have a devastating impact on families and the economy. Students and teachers may not be able to attend classes. Worse, the traffic nightmares that will probably result from a strike could impair the ability of police and firefighters to keep us safe.

But the looming BART strike is a catastrophe that need not happen. Senate and Assembly Republicans have put forward a balanced solution to keep the trains running on time while allowing contract negotiations to continue. Senate Bill 423 would require BART unions to honor the no-strike clause in their existing contracts. With support from the governor and a modest number of Democrats, a legislative solution could be achieved to prevent the almost 400,000 daily BART passengers from being stranded.

The Amalgamated Transit Union contract ensures uninterrupted transit service to the public by specifically prohibiting any employee or union to "engage in, cause or encourage any strike, slowdown, picketing, concerted refusal to work, or other interruption of the District's operations" caused by a labor dispute. Contracts for the other BART unions contain similar language.

To enforce this provision, Gov. Jerry Brown could call an emergency session of the Legislature and end the threat of a strike in a matter of days. In fact, we sent a letter - co-signed by Republican legislators throughout California - to the governor this week urging him to take action on our proposal. Unfortunately, he has not acted on our request, meaning that an easy solution is collecting dust in Sacramento.

Our proposal is not a new one. In fact, it's based on existing state law. Labor contracts between public employee unions and state government remain in effect even after the contracts expire. That way, normal operations continue until a new contract is hammered out. However, because BART is a local (not a state) agency, its unions are exempt from this law. This loophole exists in only one other major public transit system in the country. But our plan will close that loophole and spare the Bay Area from pending gridlock.

California is still barely recovering from the recession. The pending BART strike will cost the Bay Area more than $70 million per day. A recent Bay Area Council survey found that 70 percent of residents oppose a strike, and 92 percent believe a strike will have significant economic impact.

To be clear, we are not advocating for either side in this labor dispute. We urge all parties to come together and quickly find a resolution that makes sense for workers, management and taxpayers alike.

However, the governor and the Legislature must not sit idly by while a potential economic catastrophe looms. Common sense dictates that if other provisions of the unions' contracts, such as salaries and benefits, are being fulfilled, then the no-strike clause previously agreed to at the bargaining table should also be honored while negotiations continue. Absent that, our solution gives the governor and the Legislature the power to stop this strike before it starts. The time to act is now.

What does the last comment have to do with the point of this
article. The ebcitizen article is about Swalwell breaking another
campaign promise and this doesn't surprise most of the citizen
readers or posters, He flip flops on everything. Nice try on
changing the subject again because you and your candidate
are getting whipped by an Ellen Corbett Supporter and you are
losing the battle because your candidate is a corrupt flip
flopper. Try and stay on topic if you can anti woman troll.

So the Swalwell staffer writes another of his 60 or so e-mails.
Then tells himself what a wonderful e-mail it was pretending
he is someone else but his style gives him away. He uses
sexist and racist tones in his e-mails thinking he's helping
Swalwell, but is really helping Ellen Corbett instead. It's really
laughable that he has no shame and is so caveman and
backwards.

As far as flip-flopping goes Swalwell taken so many different
positions on so many topics he can't even remember them all.
Just check out the local papers and the ebcitizen. Tavares
even did more than one article on his flip-flops. He told people
he was for the chained CPI, then he was against it. He told
people he was for changes to Social Security, then he was
against them. Not a good track record on consumer bills after
he took corporate money either. Flip-flop, flip-flop, flip-flop.

BTW---I didn't say Swalwell was a racist or a sexist. He's only
a corrupt flip flopper who hasn't done a single bill that been signed. I said YOU were the racist and sexist and were hurting
your boss and helping my candidate. Anyone can see that
from your many posts not only on this topic, but on every
topic you post on. Just another angry white male who feels
insignificant and belongs to the Tea Party. LOL

You are a racist and sexist-Just admit it Swalwell staffer.
Even if you won't admit it-your posts speak to it clearly.
You should be ashamed in this day and age-but you are not.
We are all laughing at you and your temper.

We can all see what One In The Same does in her parents' Berkeley basement in the wee hours of the morning. This man-hater who calls our congressman a racist and sexist--bitch doesn't even live in his district--has nothing better to do. And to post FOUR messages within minutes of each other, well, this Corbett staffer should be fired for that alone.

The following post bears repeating since it represent the majority opinion of the 15th congressional district. To the BBDB, time for you to resign from the Corbett staff. Your 1:00 am ramblings are even more uncoherent and libelous than your other fiction. Ellen is still a racist.


To the single poster of the last three comments, AKA as One-In-the-Same, welcome back, ho. You were gone the past few days. We all had dared hoped that you'd gone away to baking school and added a little arsenic to your old lace cookies. Oh well, we'll keep giving better than we get, since you lie about 'racism,' 'sexism', Missy, and all the rest.

An excellent summation, 5:28. It bears reposting for the trolls who are against our congressman no matter what he says, does, or believes.

Oh and not every 'Democrat' voted for the bridge. You better believe it matters to voters, which you'll find out the hard way very shortly.

My wife and I ride BART and agree with the excellent narrative written about the present situation. The only way to settle this so that the public is not held hostage is to exempt the unions once and for all from never being able to strike again, just like MUNI and other mass transit systems.

Thank you so much for writing exactly how the public feels. I will be contacting my state representatives and Jerry Brown to let them know that this is the only answer to solve this outrageous threat once and for all. The public should never be taken hostage every four years.

To the single poster of the last 2 e-mails and Swalwell staffer
and apologist----here we go again.

So the Swalwell staffer writes another of his 60 or so e-mails.
Then tells himself what a wonderful e-mail it was pretending
he is someone else but his style gives him away. He uses
sexist and racist tones in his e-mails thinking he's helping
Swalwell, but is really helping Ellen Corbett instead. It's really
laughable that he has no shame and is so caveman and
backwards.

As far as flip-flopping goes Swalwell taken so many different
positions on so many topics he can't even remember them all.
Just check out the local papers and the ebcitizen. Tavares
even did more than one article on his flip-flops. He told people
he was for the chained CPI, then he was against it. He told
people he was for changes to Social Security, then he was
against them. Not a good track record on consumer bills after
he took corporate money either. Flip-flop, flip-flop, flip-flop.

You are assuming I'm a Corbett staffer, which I'm not.
I know you don't believe that because you are a Swalwell
staffer. I am a supporter of Ellen though and live in the
district. Keep up your racist and sexist talk because it will only
help Ellen get elected. I can't help it if your candidate can't get
anything done while my candidate is getting bills passed and
signed on environmental, senior, children,women,consumer,
privacy and education. It must gall you that your candidate
flip-flops on issues so much he can't get any respect. LOL

There goes One in the same--aka Corbett paid staffer.

Truly pathetic, desperate and absolutely boring above all else.

We in the community have decided that for the Corbett staffers to disparage Missy and then blame it on supporters of Congressman Swalwell is beyond pathetic. It should be criminal.

Our thanks to the young woman, Wendy, who recently exposed the Corbett attackers for the hooligans whom they are. It makes those of us who believe in clean elections only more determined to support Eric and to work even harder on his behalf.

Keep it up. By the time this is over there won't be anyone left in the fifteenth congressional district who will even give Ms. Corbett the time of day.

Thank you for telling the truth, Wendy!

Please come forward so that we can hold a news conference and expose the Corbett staff for the liars and dirty campaigners they are. Ellen Corbett is despicable for authorizing this and letting it continue.

You're a hero, Wendy!

The Swalwell Staffer is now pretending he didn't write the Wendy
e-mail you are really truly pathetic, desperate and absolutely
boring above all else. Your style gives you away. zzzzzzzzzzz

So the Swalwell staffer writes another of his 67 or so e-mails.

It is more than amusing the male chauvinistic Swalwell staffer
who writes using sexist terms pretends to be a female and praises himself again. LOL

This article is about Swalwell going back on his promises. Once
again the Swalwell staffer is trying to change the subject to
deflect the bad job his boss is doing.

Well, friends, the Corbett paid staffer, aka One-In-the-Same, who lives in her parents' basement in Berkeley, is back trolling again in the wee hours of the morning. Pity this poor, wretched creature who has no life other than to post the same vitriol against our congressman over, and over, and over again. She has posted FIVE similar ramblings, all the same as in earlier days, within minutes of each other. You are truly pathetic, little girl.

It is your fault, for you do know what you do. Regardless, I still hope that Wendy, their former disciple, decides to come forward to expose this Corbett hack for whom she is and whom they are.

The Corbett paid staffer continues to tar and feather her candidate and then pass it off as the congressman's supporters doing so. Didn't this type of thing happen in Europe during WW II?

All we can reiterate is that the BBDB is truly pathetic, despicable, and disgusting. This will absolutely ensure Missy's defeat.

So says the Swalwell staffer! How pathetic, despicable and
disgusting you are pretending to be other people. Not fooling
anyone---just a fool. At least you have stopped your racist and
sexist taunts.

You are assuming I'm a Corbett staffer, which I'm not.

Ladies & Gentlemen of the district.

We present for your viewing amusement 1:58, AKA One-In-the-Same, AKA BBDB. She is the man hater, living outside the district and in her parents' Berkeley basement who is a paid Whorbett staffer. She lies up, down, forward, and backward and has a bridge to sell you. Not any bridge, mind you, the Willie L. Brown bridge. What bridge is that, you say? Well, before Missy Corbett decided to honor her old pimp and crafty, oily, sexist politician ol' Boss Brown, it used to be known as the SF-Oakland Bay Bridge. Yes, it will officially lose that designation on all official documents and maps courtesy of Missy.

If you like this type of rampant waste in Sacramento then you'll definitely want to send Missy to Washington. Her campaign motto is: Please let me screw with you some more.

To paraphrase the words of her mentor, Pete Stark: If you liked me, hell put her in. You'll get much more of the same!

Old Missy. With friends like her there will be even more chaos in Washington. Never ready for prime time.

How those Boss Brown cookies coming, Ellen!

Corbett troll, you don't fool anyone. Nothing but a space ho!

My name is Trudy Wynant and I live in Fremont. I like Eric and will probably vote for him. I am willing to consider Ellen if she works more to save Bart from a strike. I am reading about the naming of the bridge here and that is transit. If she votes to ban strikes so that seniors like me who are crippled can get to the doctor then I think I would vote for her. The news says that this is something for state action in Sacramento. I hope that she will make the strikes against the law so that I can get to my apointments. It is not fair to make the people suffer this way.

To 2:08 and 3:25 both the same Swalwell troll who has over
70 posts on this string just wasting our time and taxpayer
money. You, as a Swalwell staffer, should not be posting on the taxpayers dime. You and Eric will both be fired in 2014.

To the doofus Swalwell staffer! How pathetic, despicable and
disgusting you are pretending to be other people. Not fooling
anyone---just a fool. At least you have stopped your racist
taunts. But you keep making sexist comments which is
despicable, but not surprising considering your boss.

What a joke Swalwell is! Vote anyone but Swalwell in 2014.

Hey, how you doing this morning, Corbett space ho!

Time for you to go back to bed. Do your nasty writing during the early morning hours. The rest of us are in bed and getting ready for WORK the next day. You're worthless.

The last post was from a Swalwell staffer who constantly
blogs pro-Swalwell comments on the citizen when his boss is
criticized. Stop wasting our tax-payer money! I do live in the
District and you keep making sexist comments because you
are a male chauvinist and are less than worthless. LOL

Why don't you try sticking to the point of the article instead of
changing the subject. Try to defend your flip-flopping boss if
you can. What a joke you are!

The last post was from a Corbett staffer who constantly
blogs anti-Swallwel comments on the 'East Bay Citizen' whenever her boss is
criticized. Stop wasting our tax-payer money! You don't live in the 15th congressional
district and you keep making whorific comments because you
are an anti-male ho and are mucho less than worthless. LAYFA.

Why don't you try sticking to the point of the article instead of

The Swalwell staffer pretends he's Wendy and then pretends he's

You are such a doofus it's really funny Swalwell staffer. I don't
know who is more incompetent----you or your boss. I do know
you are more disturbed and really need to seek help. When
you pretend to be Ellen Corbett to make point only you
understand, it's really unbelievable. I guess you never will be
able to defend Swalwell's flip-flops and finally realize that in
2014 the game will be over for the two of you. Wait, Eric just
called and conceited the election to Ellen Corbett after
apologizing for his staffer who made the racist and sexist
remarks.

Agree Swalwell showed no class here. Voted for him once, but
never again.

After reading all of this crap from these delusional people, I have decided to follow Wendy's lead.

My family and I will be very proud to support Congressman Swalwell.

Trudy Wynant

Now the Swalwell staffer is Trudy, after being Wendy and
Ellen.This just gets more amusing as the staffer tries to get
off topic once again to deflect Swalwell Flip-Flops. LMAO

My family and friends will be supporting Ellen Corbett.

I am not Ellen Corbett, but was very impressed by what SHE wrote, so I am cutting and pasting it again. The hope would be that the renegade former staffer who professes to support her will quit writing all of this disgusting graffiti and cease and desist. She needs to follow Ellen's lead, if she even is a supporter which is questionable at best, and stop writing all of this garbage.


This is Ellen Corbett, and I have authorized ALL of the mudslinging toward my own campaign and then blamed it on Congressman Swalwell.

He was elected to congress and I never will be. Rather than take the highroad, I decided to attack with all of my pent-up rage. I apologize profusely to the congressman and announce here and now that I will offer every assistance that I can to aid with his re-election. His positions are the same as mine, and I am proud to associate with him. This is my attempt to repent for my past transgressions.

I encourage all of my supporters to join with Team Swalwell, who does the 15th congressional district proud. Finally, thank you to Wendy for coming forward and helping me to come clean. You're a hero, Wendy!

Stop wasting our tax-payer money! I do live in the District and
I doubt you do.

Why don't you try sticking to the point of the article instead of
changing the subject. Try to defend your flip-flopping boss if
you can.

As far as flip-flopping goes Swalwell has taken so many
different positions on so many topics he can't even remember
them all. Just check out the local papers and the ebcitizen.
Tavares even did more than one article on his flip-flops. He
told people he was for the chained CPI, then he was against it.
He told people he was for changes to Social Security, then he was against them. Not a good track record on consumer bills after he took corporate money either. Flip-flop, flip-flop, flip-
flop. You are both losers!

To the one they call the Space Ho, nobody reads your crap or takes you seriously. As soon as I see the word 'flip' at the end, I immediately know it's the skank from Berkeley who lives in her parents' basement at age 67!

LOL=Lying OLD Loser!

What a joke Swalwell's staffer is! Vote for any one but Swalwell
in 2014.

Because of the tone of the Swalwell supporter(sexistremarks),
I will be voting for Ellen Corbett if she runs. I voted for Eric
against Stark but realize that was a mistake. I think we need
more women in Congress and Ellen is more than qualified.

Because of the tone of the Corbett Space Ho staffer,[racist and other derogatory remarks], I will be voting for Eric Swalwell for his re-election. I voted for Pete against Eric but realize that that was a mistake. I know we need more qualified people in congress, and Eric is the best prepared, bar none.

Unfortunately for you and Eric- you, the Swalwell staffer, is the only one making racist and sexist remarks. I told you it would come back to bite you. Thank you for helping Ellen Corbett. LOL

Well what do you know? It's the Swalwell troll, stooge, shill, staffer(pick one cause there's only one). Remember the name Eric " the corrupt flip-flopper" Swalwell if you want to vote for the developers wet dream or the mega-corporations best friend.

Since Eric has authored no significant legislation in Washington, I'll take Ellen Corbett who has authored significant legislation to help the environment, women, consumers, seniors, children, education, etc.

You are assuming I'm a Corbett staffer, which I'm not.
I know you don't believe that because you are a Swalwell
staffer. I am a supporter of Ellen though and live in the
district. Keep up your racist and sexist talk because it will only
help Ellen get elected. I can't help it if your candidate can't get
anything done while my candidate is getting bills passed and
signed on environmental, senior, children,women,consumer,
privacy and education. It must gall you that your candidate
flip-flops on issues so much he can't get any respect. LOL

I am not Ellen Corbett, but was very impressed by what SHE wrote, so I am cutting and pasting it again. The hope would be that the renegade former staffer who professes to support her will quit writing all of this disgusting graffiti and cease and desist. She needs to follow Ellen's lead, if she even is a supporter which is questionable at best, and stop writing all of this garbage.


This is Ellen Corbett, and I have authorized ALL of the mudslinging toward my own campaign and then blamed it on Congressman Swalwell.

He was elected to congress and I never will be. Rather than take the highroad, I decided to attack with all of my pent-up rage. I apologize profusely to the congressman and announce here and now that I will offer every assistance that I can to aid with his re-election. His positions are the same as mine, and I am proud to associate with him. This is my attempt to repent for my past transgressions.

I encourage all of my supporters to join with Team Swalwell, who does the 15th congressional district proud. Finally, thank you to Wendy for coming forward and helping me to come clean. You're a hero, Wendy!



You'll always be our hero, Wendy!

Thank you for supporting the congressman!



Keep those Willie Brown Bridge cookies coming, Ellen. About all you're good for!

I should have said the post at 8:26 was a Swalwell staffer

Well I ride Bart to SF and think there's nothing wrong with
legislators like Gavin Newsome, Mark Desaulnier, Ellen Corbett
and more than a dozen legislators trying to prevent a strike. It
might be the only reason I wasn't forced to miss work today.

They have no standing. All they ever do is rally for the unions--their mother's milk of campaigns.

The ONLY thing that will save BART is to ban strikes for the future for all time. Unfortunately, it won't prevent this strike. You have to break eggs for the omelet. Once the ban happens, we the public will never be held hostage again.

This is the answer, put forward by a good Democrat who respects the public. Please sign.

This article is about Swalwell going back on his promises.
Once again the Swalwell staffer is trying to change the
subject to deflect the bad job his boss is doing. He pretends
he's Wendy and he pretends he's Ellen Corbett. This
chauvinist is mentally disturbed if he thinks he is helping
Swalwell. LOL If I had a mistake prone boss like yours I
would try and change the subject too. LMAO

p.s. Calling people sexist names is not winning votes for
Swalwell. This is the 21st century.

When is the Swalwell staffer lying?
Answer----Every e-mail he sends.LOL

To the Swalwell staffer who constantly blogs pro-Swalwell
comments on the citizen when his boss is criticized. Stop
wasting our tax-payer money! I do live in the District and you
keep making sexist comments because you are a male
chauvinist and are less than worthless. LOL

Why don't you try sticking to the point of the article instead of

Times like this, reading all these negative facts about the carpet-bagger that we have a real congressman representing the district.

Somebody mention those Willie Ho Brown Bridge cookies again?

Congressman Swalwell, a shoe-in for re-election. Excellent track record, not Pete Corbett, and new district demographics. He's running unopposed.
