There is absolutely no getting around it, Dianne Feinstein the ceremonial senior U.S. Senator for CA has grown to tired to do her job. After, at 79 years of age most people of long since hung up their guns.
Not Dianne Feinstein, the power and perks of the job are apparently just too much for her to let go.
We need some comedy here right? In the November 2006 election, the voters demanded congressional ethics reform. Thus, the newly appointed chairman of the Senate Rules Committee, Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., was then duly in charge of regulating the ethical behavior of her colleagues.
The Senator’s ethical lapses feathering her own nest egg as well as those of her husband with taxpayer dollars are legendary, yet since members of congress are judged my members of their so-called “Congressional Ethics Committee,” she has been allowed to continue to roam the halls of the U.S. Senate.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein introduced legislation to route $25 billion in taxpayer money to a government agency that had just awarded her husband’s real estate firm a lucrative contract to sell foreclosed properties at compensation rates higher than the industry norms.
Feinstein was chairperson and ranking member of MILCON for six years, during which time she had a conflict of interest due to her husband Richard C. Blum’s ownership of two major defense contractors, who were awarded billions of dollars for military construction projects approved by Feinstein.

It’s time that California and the United States had a senator working for them and not against them. Please listen to the interview below, as I’m certain after doing so you will be casting your vote for Elizabeth Emken for United States Senator from CA on November 6, 2012.

She refuses to debate her opponent Elizabeth Emken and rightfully so. What could she say?
Let’s see I vote exactly like the other two of the triplets, Boxer and Pelosi, and we are in lock step with everything Harry Reid and Obama hold so dear.
I presided over the economic implosion of California because I never could quite grasp the concept that raising taxes drives jobs out of the state as well as the country.
That’s right California is number 49 leading all states but Harry Reid’s Nevada in unemployed citizens. Think there might be a connection between failed policy and jobs?
No, she will not debate Elizabeth Emken who is eminently more qualified. Elizabeth served in management, financial analysis, and corporate operations at IBM. As an efficiency and cost cutting expert, Elizabeth utilized activity-based cost analyses to identify administrative savings across IBM U.S., helping streamline operations, eliminate waste, and save the company millions of dollars.
Elizabeth graduated from UCLA in 1984 with degrees in Economics and Political Science. Her studies included course work at Cambridge University, where she focused on political and economic issues in China and the Middle East.
So much that Emken has made the decision to send her home.
