CONGRESS | 17TH DISTRICT | Former South Bay Rep. Ernie Konnyu is pissed. This week, Rep. Mike Honda's campaign attempted to link Konnyu, a divisive Republican representative who served the area in the 1980s, to Ro Khanna in a negative mailer.
But, Konnyu did not take kindly to the mailer and took to Twitter Wednesday afternoon to call out Honda.
"@RepMikeHonda You['re] going down Tuesday. The trash you sent on me was shameful...& against this retired Member! Go to political hell! Go Ro!"
A few months ago, the out-spoken Konnyu publicly urged members of the Tea Party to back Khanna's bid to unseat Honda. Khanna, though, has not distanced himself from Konnyu.
