Call for Doan's resignation orchestrated

The call for Ms. [Lurita] Doan's resignation is absolutely the worst misuse of legislative power I have seen in years. This "call' is a continuation of the Democrat Party's (I said that right!) well-known but unspoken campaign to paint as many officials in the current administration as totally inept, inefficient or corrupt somehow and unable to do anything.

In reality, Ms. Doan and the rest of these senior people are DOING SOMETHING in government to try to help the people, working with the horrendous Gordian knot of laws in everything — passed by our "couch potato Congress." The current crop of lawmakers can only complain and point fingers — they have not provided any hint of solutions.

My outrage is not based just on this one incident — it is a culmination of years of following the published news. And make no mistake, this call for Ms. Doan's resignation was orchestrated at the senior levels of the Democratic leadership. Just remember, when you have chased all the lions away, all you have left are the jackals.
