Knollenberg hits new Low

Congressman Joe Knollenberg must really be getting desperate.

Now he is taking credit for legislation that he had little to do with.

His blog today notes: " I am very pleased to announce that the House of Representatives passed the America Competes Act, with my strong support."

What was his "strong support"? He voted for it. Yes. He voted for it. That's it. That is all there is to see at Joe's disasterous reign. Move on.

He is trying to take credit for legislation that he not only didn't sponsor, but he didn't even co-sponsor!

Then again, learning that Knollenberg considers doing nothing other than voting on a piece of legislation constitutes "strong support", we can now understand why he has such an abysmal record and poor reputation in Congress.

According to the conservative website govtrack, in 15 years, he has only proposed 72 pieces of legislation -- 60 of which never got out of committee!!! And of those that actually made it out of committee, only 6 were passed.

Now, I'm not advocating legislation for the sake of legislation. But certainly there are more than 6 problems in this country that have needed to be addressed over the past 15 years.

We Can't Afford Joe Knollenberg Anymore.
