The campaign of Martha Robertson, the Democratic challenger in my home district of NY-23, really should have been on the list of the Worst Campaigns of 2014.

Lack of funding is not the problem at the Veterans Administration.  It’s the government healthcare system, stupid.

In a story published today, Dennis Wagner of Arizona Central reported new details about the Phoenix VA:

I’ve covered many campaigns over the past several years here at Legal Insurrection.

The campaign of Martha Robertson, challenging incumbent Republican Tom Reed, is one of the most bizarre so far.

Have you noticed?

Everything has changed since the Obama administration Barry-caded the World War II Memorial and tried to keep out a group of visiting WWII Veterans, and then the Democrats in the House killed funding for the Veterans Administration.
