Rep. Parker Griffith (D) switching parties?

He has been doing polling and indicates that he loses as a Democrat so he is switching parties.


I hope this is true because he is going to get killed in the primary and he will be gone.

Any GOP organization that does not repudiate him immediately will lose my support.

You can not imply a guy a murderer and a man of no integrity and then open your arms.

With Mo Brooks, the front runner, and Les Phillip both staking out solid conservative positions I don’t see how a guy like Parker Griffith, who voted for Pelosi as Speaker and with her a majority of the time, has a prayer in a GOP primary in 2010.

This makes Griffith a dead man walking.

More on this later…


According to a senior GOP aide familiar with the decision, the announcement will take place in this afternoon in his home district in northern Alabama.

Griffith’s party switch comes on the eve of a pivotal congressional health care vote and will send a jolt through a Democratic House Caucus that has already been unnerved by the recent retirements of a handful of members who, like Griffith, hail from districts that offer prime pickup opportunities for the GOP.


The National Republican Congressional Committee poured in $514,000 to air ads attacking Griffith, including one that suggested he was soft on Islamic terrorism.

And the committee raised questions about whether Griffith engaged in medical malpractice by releasing decades-old documentation accusing his cancer center of under-dosing patients with radiation so he could collect more money.

But now the GOP is cool with him?

Screw you GOP.
