Hall of Shame 2013

Hall of Shame members who’s conservative ratings are the worst of the worst, radically underperforming the conservative expectations of their districts. Unfortunately for them, the words of Abraham Lincoln ring clear:

“You may fool all of the people some of the time, you can even fool some of the people all of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time.”

The American people are waking up…and it does not bode well for our Hall of Shame members.  These elected representatives are not helping to restore and strengthen our constitutional Republic. They muddle the conservative message by supporting their own forms of stimulus, bailouts, and corporate welfare. Their liberal records speak volumes…and we are committed to not only exposing their actions but also finding and supporting strong, conservative primary challengers.

Meet the Hall of Shame:

Here is a list of members who’s conservative ratings are dramatically underperforming in strong Republican districts or have scored a failing grade in swing or lean districts. These are our pale-pastel politicians – the ones who blur the distinction between the parties in 2013.
