19. Congressman Lou Barletta

This poor excuse of a Congressman, Lou Barletta of PA-11 should never be in Congress. He rode the back of hatred for Latinos as Mayor of Hazleton and was a Tea Party favorite on trampling any type of logical discussion or working together on this matter. The ill informed electorate of the 11th and especially the fools in Hazleton provided him the margin of victory in the 2010 cycle, when many Democrats sand on their hands and stayed home. Mayor/congressman Barletta started many law suits as Mayor of Hazleton to keep himself in the public spotlight and become a favorite of the stupid in the 11th. He saddled Hazleton with millions of dollars in debt to pay for these lawsuits and the recently elected Mayor of Hazleton had to raise taxes over 80%. Then because in 2010 Pennsylvania by reasons mentioned above elected a Republican Gov. Tom Corporate, and a State House and Senate controled by the GOP they gerrymandered districts to see that marginal Republicans would hold there seats, this helped Louie win in 2012 and you should see how illogical the new 11th is set up but it "saved his ass" by removing Wilkes-Barre and Wyoming Valley as well as Scranton from the District. The recently elected Democrat from the new district, Matt Cartright, would have "CLEANED LOU'S CLOCK" in an election in the old 11th. While doing this the PA GOP also saved Congressman Tom Marino's ass by rigging the district he represents. Ain't politics great?
