  1. A desperate attempt by a do nothing congressperson trying to discredit a formidable and credible opponent. Audrey Denney would represent our district well.

  2. Using Facebook’s Constituent Badge, I posted this comment to Doug LaMalfa’s Facebook page, followed by a link to this (your) posting, Jeff:

    Dear Doug LaMalfa: Will you, as a person of integrity, renounce this misinformation from the Lamalfa Committee, clearly aimed at smearing Audrey Denney, or better yet put a stop to it?

    1. Hi … My comment seems to have disappeared from LaMalfa’s Facebook page. What a surprise. Perhaps he was offended by my obviously sarcastic suggestion that he’s a man of integrity.
