Моника не пройдет в Сенат?…

Share this:

Это я про Монику Веби (Monica Wehby) которая баллотируется в Сенат от нашего Штата от Республиканцев.

Моника

Это она. Детский нейрохирург. Как я понимаю, неплохой нейрохирург.

Получится ли из нее политик?

Большой вопрос, конечно. Если честно, я совсем немного следил за предстоящими выборами. От штата Орегон положено два сенатора. (Такое во всех штатах). Четыре года назад от нашего штата в Сенате были один “демократ” и один “республиканец”. При том, что от Сенатора “республиканца” проку было больше, прошлые выборы он проиграл. Такое бывает. Орегон, — очень “демократический” штат. Сейчас Моника идет от республиканской партии и я уже вижу, как ее “давят”.

The Oregon GOP Senate candidate’s difficulties began at the end of the primary campaign with the revelation, apparently a surprise to the people who urged her into the race, that she had three times been the subject of police calls for domestic disturbance. This may not be comparable to being discovered in the back room of a strip club, and may not be a disqualification from the Senate – it certainly wouldn’t disqualify her from the NFL – but it’s an awkward thing to pop up.

It may not have helped that Wehby’s immediate reaction was to blame the Merkley campaign staff, although there was no evidence that they had called the cops.

Then observers noted a curious familiarity in policy language on Wehby’s campaign web site. Her plans on health care in particular, repeatedly cited as reflecting her special insights into the issue as a pediatric neurosurgeon, turned out to be lifted intact from the medical authority Karl Rove. Once again, the campaign’s response may not have been ideal, with a campaign spokesman sniffing, “Dr. Wehby is too busy performing brain surgery on sick children to respond, sorry.”

Actually, she wasn’t.
