possible party switch for Congressman Henry Cuellar?
anyone know anything about this?

House Democrats are getting worried they may lose another Texas seat, but this time it would not be in an election. Democrats are starting to fear freshman Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-TX) may change parties and become a Republican. Describing himself as pro-gun, pro-free trade, anti-abortion and anti-gay marriage, Cuellar has angered many in his party with his primary victory over former Congressman Ciro Rodriguez, who was chairman of the Hispanic Caucus for the House.

4. He's already an election thief. He'd fit right in with the Republicans.

5. Henry, Don't let the door....on your way out.
I'd love to watch him fry in 2006, primary or general election. Switching parties would clinch such a thing happening.


Maybe Perry can give him another appointment.

6. This is a very old rumor
I highly doubt he will switch, but perhaps I am not familiar with the latest news. Is there anything substantially new to this rumor, or is it just the old ones being recycled?

:shrug:

8. I give you the true scoop
My cousin, who worked for him ever since he was a state Rep to his short term as Sec of State, is a big time Repuke. Her husband owns an import/expost business and have always gave money to the Chimp. So why would a B* backer work for a Dem, because the Dem is really not a Dem.

He tired to go get her to work for him up in Washington, but her current job threatened to sue her for breach of contract, if she did left.

7. Good I hope he does.
Then all of Laredo will see his true fucking colors. I dare him, I even double dog dare him to do it. Laredo will never vote for a Republican. I can not wait til 2006 when Ciro will kick his ass.

CUELLAR IS NOTHING MORE BUT A PNAC WHORE ALONG WITH ALBERTO GONZALES.
