Huffington Post: Dan Lungren, drug warrior, loses reelection.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/19/dan-lungren-drug-warrior-reelection_n_2159755.html

It was a tough election for the authoritarians and control freaks, wasnt it?

Good riddance to that guy.

2. For what it's worth, this was my pet race to watch from the beginning

I'm in the next district over, and we were reasonably secure so I focused on CA-7 race. I was disappointed I wasn't able to enjoy an election night victory celebration, but like they say, revenge is best served cold.

Toss Lungren on the dung heap and be done with him.

Caution: CA-7 is a true swing district and I understand the are planning to roll out Doug Ose to run again Doctor Ami Bera for the midterms. I expect another close nail biter.

4. Us Californians did our share; we turned out three pukes...

Lungren, Bilbray, and Bono Mack, plus we picked up a couple of unchallenged seats. I'm still waiting for the smoke to clear and some sage to step up and write the definitive piece on the California elections results. All in all, it was a grand election for Californians with the exception of the failure of Prop 37 (GMO labeling).

7. Kaiser, to their credit, is saying what everyone should already know

There is little research on the long-term effects of GMOs on human health

Thanks for that link.

12. Former Congressman - retired after honoring a promised three term limit

He's perceived to be sort of squeaky clean. He's all about tax reform; cut, cut, cut....

5. I cannot believe that Californians kept voting for that asshat.

from article at link

"Two years later, NBA prospect Len Bias died of a drug overdose. Washington slipped into a feverish drug-war mania, and few politicians were more hysterical than Lungren. In Smoke and Mirrors, Baum writes that Lungren wanted to make it illegal for anyone to accept money from a drug dealer. "Make it illegal for a dry cleaner or a grocery store to take money from a drug dealer, argued, and if they do, seize the business. Put the merchant in jail." Referring to the death of Bias, Lungren implored, "We have been far too lenient," according to Baum."

9. The ass started out down here in So Cal he was so bad that he got gerrymandered out

then he moved to another district where he wasn't known, kept doing that, kept staying in office. I hope we've seen the last of him and he doesn't find yet another place to run in.
