Schmidt's endorsements are rolling back

Jon at The Pensito Review has this pic up of Schmidt at a much greater size and it is ghastly. Hat tip, Jon, for keeping your lunch down.

Rep. “Mean Jean” Schmidt (R-OH), the loser who embarrasingly slagged decorated war hero John Murtha (D-PA) on the House floor, is having a hard time with endorsements on her campaign web site.

Both Ohio Republican congressman, Rep. Steve Chabot, and wingnut freak from Colorado, Rep. Tom Tancredo, are “cutting and running” away from her.

Chabot says he didn’t endorse Schmidt, who faces a primary challenge May 2 from Republican Bob McEwen, a former congressman from southern Ohio.

“We have not been asked for an endorsement by anyone in that race,” Chabot spokesman Gary Lindgren said Tuesday, adding that Chabot backs both Schmidt and McEwen. But Schmidt spokesman Barry Bennett said Schmidt has a different recollection of a Feb. 16 meeting with Chabot, during which she asked for Chabot’s support and was told she had it. “She believes she walked out of that meeting with his endorsement,” Bennett said. “Now they are saying that his support doesn’t mean an endorsement?”

…Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., wasn’t as understanding. The chairman of the House caucus on immigration reform asked Schmidt on Monday to take his name off her Web site because he had not endorsed her, either.

“We do not customarily endorse congressional candidates and we did not in this case,” Tancredo spokesman Will Adams said.
