"The House Republican Leadership just does not get it and they will not take us
seriously until we flex our muscle against them. We must fight the House GOP and
we must fight today."
Elements of the conservative wing of the Republican Party are waging a war on the party leadership over a position given to Ken Calvert. The position in on the House Appropriations Committee, and Calvert's holding the position is being questioned by what is seen as a record of questionable actions. Ironically Calvert was given the position after John Dolittle had to step down after corruption charges of his own.
