Stark: Denying Illegals Jobs – Is Illegal

The latest — as of this hour — from the Solon, Pete Stark (D-CA). From his townhall appearance on July 24th, in Hayward, California, courtesy of the Golden Gate Minutemen:

Pete Stark: Clarify E-verify. Pete Stumped Again!

MAN: Do you believe in E-Verify? Do you support E-Verify? You don’t even know it? E-Verify? The electronic verification? Do you support that?

(Stark turns away, laughing.)

WOMAN: Do you support E-Verify? That was the question that’s pending, sir.

STARK: To the extent that it’s Constitutional… You don’t like the Constitution, and I know that, but that’s okay… And doesn’t deny people their Constitutional rights.

WOMAN: Do you have an opinion as to how it might be un-Constitutional?

STARK: What might be un-Constitutional?

WOMAN: E-Verify.

STARK: How is it un-Constitutional? If in fact it’s done randomly without any reason, that has been ruled unconstitutional, that’s what the Arizona issue is all about.


MAN: E-Verify is for employers who are supposed to report the information that you hired people to see if they are legal with the documentation. How is that un-Constitutional?

STARK: It could pose a limit on somebody getting a job.

WOMAN: Like an illegal alien?

(Stark nods)

CROWD: That’s the point! That’s what we want!

It’s painfully clear from his answer that Mr. Stark does not have the foggiest idea as to what the ‘E-Verify’ program is.

Moreover, his sudden concerns about ‘Constitutionality’ stand in (ahem) stark contrast to his previous assertion that the federal government can do almost anything it wants:

Pete Stark: – The Federal Government Can Do Most Anything In This Country

It’s safe to say that Mr. Stark is the walking (and talking) embodiment of everything that is wrong with our political elite in Washington, DC.

    Stark is certifiable.

  2. proreason says:

    We need to separate from counties and states that elect these arrogant criminals. Let them fall into their own self-created dungeons of hatred.

  3. wardmama4 says:

    Does anyone run against Stark? I shuddered to think of the truly ignorant that elect this ignorant moron (Rep Stark, but I do admit to being redundant).

    My 22 year old daughter who just graduated from college and has only held entry level jobs – could articulate the Constitution, the E-verify law and the Constitutionality of it – much better than Stark.

    And Oh btw – you ignorant moron (Stark) – The Constitution does Limit and Enumerate the Power of Representatives, Senators and the President and none of you – ‘Can Do Most Anything In This Country’.

    And that Rep Stark means that you are doing illegal things.

    Shouldn’t it then follow that Stark should be on trial and going to jail?

    Aside for the ignorant moron Stark – private businesses can and do set limits upon those they hire – and as you intend to tax every single dollar in the US in a dozen different ways – one would think that you would want only legal American workers – so that you can tax their money to the max.

    Clowns used to creep me out when I was a kid – but nothing like lately.

    Send in the Clowns!

    Hey, is Dumbo back from Chicago?

  5. NoNeoCommies says:

    I used to think that Stark was just a major *ssh*le, but after seeing the “deer in the headlights” reaction to issues most politically aware people are familiar with, I suspect he is suffering from dementia.
    One symptom is covering for your ignorance with jokes and insults intended to deflect and avoid providing logical answers you do not possess.

    He is no longer competent to hold his position.

    • Helena says:

      Gotta agree. He’s clearly out of it. But what’s his excuse for his first 30 years in office? Better question, what’s the excuse for the people who voted for him?

    • U NO HOO says:

      I have had a personal experience where I suggested a family member was either evil or had a brain tumor. Turned out the person had a brain tumor. I suggest to Rep. Stark that he visit the appropriate medical specialists.

    Send In The Clowns
    (lyrics by RB – as sung by Judy Collins – )

    Is – n’t it rich? Aren’t we a pair?

    (Yeah, since that cattle futures deal back in the ’80’s not to mention all those no interest loans for our Westchester & Washington mansions. Not bad for a couple of hippies – AND YOU GET TWO FOR THE PRICE OF ONE – BTW – WHAT WAS THAT PRICE AGAIN?)

    Me here at last on the ground, and you in mid-air –

    (The ground being Washington DC & the air meaning Bill off to Brazil, again)>

    Send in the clowns.

    (Obvious reference to the DNC)

    Is – n’t it bliss? Don’t you approve?

    (meaning, “I can’t believe they’re buying this stuff. And, Even if they don’t, they really couldn’t care less).

    One who keeps tear – ing around, and one who can’t move.

    (Obvious reference to Bill with secondary mention of Hillary)

    But where are the clowns? Send in the clowns.

    (meaning, “We Need to Move Our People In.”)

    Just when I stopped opening doors,

    (Bill screaming: “No wait! Not that one to the pantry just off the Oval Office. I’m, I’m – Not Alone).

    Finally knowing the one that I wanted was yours;

    (Bill again, “How the hell was I supposed to know she was your college roommate?!”)

    Making my entrance again with my usual flair,

    (“Wave, bite lip, wave, point to someone in the audience”)

    Sure of my lines – no one is there.

    (“I’VE – COME – TOO FARRRRR!!”)

    Don’t you love farce? My fault, I fear;

    (“I can’t believe people buy this crap!”)

    I thought that you’d want what I want – sorry my dear.

    (Bill apologizing, “Well, yeah, sure, but HOW’D THE HELL WAS I SUPPOSED TO KNOW SHE WAS YOUR COLLEGE ROOMMATE?!”)

    But where are the clowns? Quick, send in the clowns.

    (“Listen if we don’t have enough of our own damn clowns, we’re going to have to import them from Mexico. I don’t care if you have to dig up dead ones. WE NEED MORE DAMN CLOWNS!!!”)

    Don’t bother, they’re here.

    “Thanks Arnold…(update) Barack, Eric & the entire cast of Coos Coos that is Congress in Washington)!

    Is – n’t it rich? Is – n’t it queer,

    (Actually, she’s not gay. Just all her friends are. And who would have predicted that the Gay Network would sponsor a presidential debate anyway?!”)

    Los – ing my tim – ing this late in my career?

    (“Sure, you can sit there with your little hatchet job & that smug little smirk on your face.”)

    But where are the clowns? There ought to be clowns.

    (“They’re stuck on the border, Sir! John McCain flipped on us!”)

    Well, maybe next year.

    (God! I Hope Not!)

    This is why the majority of them simply won’t hold such meetings with their constituents.. it gives too much fuel to those who can see their elitism.
