But in this case, I’ll point it out. From Politicalwire:
Rep. Steven Palazzo (R-MS) voted against relief for victims of Hurricane Sandy last week, TPM reports, “despite representing coastal Mississippi, one of the regions hardest hit by Hurricane Katrina and a top beneficiary of Katrina disaster aid.”
In fact, Palazzo “was deeply involved in pressing for federal dollars in the fall of 2005. Then acting in his role as a local government official, Palazzo repeatedly appealed for federal funding to help rebuild his battered coastal Mississippi community in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.”
What makes this hypocrisy so unsettling is the guy knows what hurricanes do to a community, He watched the news reports about Sandy. So either he doesn’t care about the damage and suffering upstate, or he’s so worried about being primaried from the right because people in his community put blinders on about the assistance they got from Katrina and view Sandy as a waste, or the people he represents think somehow the north east doesn’t deserve the assistance.
Either way, For this vote, you are an early candidate for the 2013 Hypocrite of the Year award.
