McHenry hangs out with the payday lending crowd

Not that it’s any real surprise, but Congressman Patrick McHenry will be a featured speaker this week at the annual payday lending industry conference in Hollywood, Florida. This is the same lobby group that once featured “Mr. Book of Morals” William Bennett at a conference in Las Vegas.

McHenry will be joined at the podium by another paragon of priciples, FOX Noise sleazo, Dick Morris.

Talk about your high class events.

I think we need to have a real investigation of voting machines, which are programmed from afar, not in the elections offices. McHenry and his cronies will bring this country to the edge then watch it fall off the cliff, saying “Who me?”
