Who’s playing partisan politics?

Who’s playing partisan politics?

To the Editor:

The Jan. 20 edition of the Daily News carried a guest commentary by Jeff Lamberti whereby he attempts to profess his concern for the workers at Maytag in Newton. In his commentary, he speaks to the announcement of Senator Tom Harkin and Congressman Leonard Boswell to ask the U.S. Department of Justice to block Maytag takeover by Whirlpool. He states “this action by Leonard Boswell is a shortsighted partisan political ploy…”

This comes from a person who has 10 percent (favorable) lifetime voting record on labor issues (Source: AFL-CIO).

That is a very poor record of support for labor in Iowa.

But, let’s not forget he is now running for Congress, so he wants you to believe he is concerned about working men and women. There is no doubt in my mind that his commentary is a “partisan political ploy.”
