Apparently, Scott Garrett has so deserted his home district that he doesn't even bother to raise money here anymore. Today, Garrett is in New York City (that bastion of liberalism) to raise money at a $1,000-a-plate fundraiser.
And the guest of honor is: Dick Cheney (aka Darth Vader). Garrett is so scared of what his constituents will think of him and the Radical Republican Vice President that he had to scurry off to the Waldorf-Astoria with his rich special interest buddies from Wall Street and raise huge money to get reelected. Pandering to the Wall Street crowd is not only downright dirty, but nearly criminal when you consider that Garrett is supposed to be passing laws regulating them (Garrett sits on the House Financial Services Committee).
Scott Garrett, you can't hide from your rubber stamp record supporting George Bush and Dick Cheney and Tom Delay for the last four years. The people of the 5th district of NJ are much smarter than that. They're so smart that come November 7th, enjoy retirement.
