Dana Rohrabacher Fibs Again

"This is not done with any type of belligerency."

--The hilariously disingenuous statement earlier this month by Congressman Dana Rohrabacher while visiting Catalina Island to confront a lone Mexican consulate official for distributing ID cards in the resort town of Avalon. To launch his June 3 election year stunt, Rohrabacher issued a "MEDIA ADVISORY" encouraging journalists to interview him at 7:45 a.m. "next to the Queen Mary," at 10 a.m. inside St. Catherine's Catholic Church in Avalon and at 11:45 a.m. at the Long Beach Helipad upon his return. It worked. The congressman--who first ran for office 22 years ago while passionately arguing for term limits--was so elated with the Los Angeles Times coverage that he posted its article on his official House website.
