I’m hopeful that voters will be able to see the real Pete Stark leading up to November. His actions, attitudes and downright dishonesty should be highlighted for all to see between now and November. His performance at the one debate only highlighted his untruthfulness and his appearance before the Chronicle in which he could not point to one piece of legislation of significance that he has steered into law since 1994 points out his total lack of value to both the voters he supposedly represents, and the country as a whole.

At his age and considering his outlandish behavior, he may not be fit to run for office by the time of the election. What am I saying: He's not fit now!
