State Capitol, CA – State Senator Andy Vidak (R-Hanford) today issued the following satirical statement in response to the ridiculous hiring of disgraced former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to be “of counsel” to Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon and Senate President pro-Tempore Kevin De Leon:
“As a history buff, there’s an interesting comparison in here – the civilization of the U.S. going from east to west back in the 1800’s that drove numerous outlaws, carpet-baggers and card-cheats westward as the country was growing tired of these individuals who primarily thrived on taking things away from others.
“California it appears will unfortunately become a haven for many of the same folks whose actions were clearly rejected in the rest of the country in November. The killing of jobs in resources industries (oil, agriculture, mining, etc.) and the attempts to repeatedly violate the Second Amendment finally reached a point of rebellion as demonstrated through the victory of Donald Trump in many previously ‘safe’ Democrat states throughout the nation.
“With regards to Holder gaining new employment, they can’t say that the election of Trump hasn’t spurred new jobs being created! I guess the Legislature’s Leaders, who support wasting tens of millions of taxpayers’ dollars on High Speed Rail, figured ‘what’s another $90 grand or so to get a jet-setting trial lawyer/hired gun on retainer?’”
