Keith Ellison just doesn't get it

Again Keith Ellison failed to get his campaign finances taken care of in time, and while it may be silly that he has to take care of little things like a campaign finance report for a race he wasn't a part of, and probably involved little to no money it is something a member of congress should be capable of making sure gets done.

There is a reason that those of us who opposed Ellison brought up his unpaid parking tickets, unfilled taxes, and unfilled campaign finance reports were brining those issues up. And no, Chris Stewart, it wasn't because we hate black people, or that we don't understand what it's like. It's because we expect a minimal level of competence and a minimal commitment to the law out of our elected leaders. At this point I'd prefer Ellison simply releases a statement that says he didn't file because it's a waste of his time and energy rather then have his spokesperson lie and say that he did file.

Despite the fact Alan Fine and Tammy Lee split the opposing vote, Ellison did not fair very well in the last election, and can't afford for his support to slip much further of this or he will face serious challenges from all angles in 2008, and all the hired guns accusing anyone that opposes Ellison of racism will be laughed off.

Keith Ellison demonstrates once again that he is unfit to serve as a member of congress, as he is incapable of doing the most basic things the law requires of him.
