A FEW weeks ago, the Chairman of the Republican Party, James Ada, took a stand against Congresswoman Tina Sablan for factually pointing out dishonest and unethical acts committed by Governor Torres.

The information she provided were all documented and not based on hearsay. So, rather than educate the public of his disagreement on the merit of the facts, as presented by the Congresswoman, he engaged in misinformation, innuendos and defamation of her character.

The Chairman’s op-ed on the Congresswoman’s fidelity to our citizen’s right to know the facts about our government and its leaders, speaks well of the very essence he was trying to dispel. Republican leadership just can’t handle the truth. His attempt to divert away from the facts ironically cast aspersion on his real motive which is, “subversive coverup.”

Diverting away from the facts, coverup and vilifying citizens who speak the truth, is a political ploy unhinged Republicans and their dominions are so good at. They mastered their trade by portraying someone as evil, or as worthy of contempt or blame in order to defend against any potential threat to their power. Thankfully though, our people finally are standing up against corruptions, dishonesty, self-enrichment and widespread nepotism, not to mention sheer incompetence.

The dreadfulness of the current leadership conduct is so deplorable that lifelong Republicans who are against corruptions in our government are now speaking out. Not only are they speaking out freely, they are lending support to Democrats throughout the Commonwealth to help bring economic stability and financial prudency, put a stop on predatory self-enrichment scams, and restore decency and dignity in the people’s government.

No matter how hard the Chairman tries to spin the fact that Governor Torres is a dishonest and unethical leader, by smearing Congresswoman Tina Sablan’s reputation for publicly exposing the Governor’s misdeeds, people are just plain tired of all the financial shenanigans and public distain. No amount of political spinning, by the Chairman or anyone else, would change the fact that our people have already formed their opinion about Governor Torres.

Shooting the messenger may be a time-honored emotional response to unwanted news, but it is not a very effective phycology of remaining the well-informed. While we are on the opposite side of the political divide, I consider the Chairman a friend and I wonder if he is not be in favor of the truth? Unless of course, he is also part of the problem.

I hate to disappoint the Chairman, but his effort and those of the Governor’s enablers are fruitless because Congresswoman Tina Sablan has an impeccable character, integrity and genuine sincerity. A woman and a leader of impeccable character, her quiet and inoffensive manner endeared her to all who had the pleasure of knowing her. Tina Sablan is just the opposite of the person the Chairman adores.

By the way, the Chairman still hasn’t responded to our January letter calling for a public forum between his party and the Democratic Party on the issues of mismanagement and corruption in government. That letter was hand-delivered by me to his office couple of months after the Governor was subpoenaed by the FBI.
