#1 Oregon Congressman Reportedly Urged to Get Psychiatric Help02-19-2011, 03:09 PM
PORTLAND, Ore. -- Just days before the November midterms, senior staffers of U.S. Rep. David Wu were so alarmed over the Oregon Democrat's erratic behavior that they demanded he enter a hospital for psychiatric treatment, a newspaper reported Friday evening.
The Oregonian, citing interviews with a number of anonymous staff members, reported on its website that Wu was increasingly unpredictable on the campaign trial and in private last fall, and had several angry and loud outbursts and sometimes said "kooky" things to staff and potential voters and donors. A similar report was carried on the Willamette Week newspaper's website on Friday.
The fact that Wu was in the middle of a difficult re-election campaign from his Portland-area district made his behavior particularly worrisome to staff who organized a meeting with the congressman at his campaign headquarters on Oct. 30, with a psychiatrist joining by speaker phone.
"This is way beyond acceptable levels and the charade needs to end NOW," wrote Lisa Grove, a senior and long-serving campaign pollster, in an e-mail to colleagues the day of the meeting. "No enabling by any potential enablers, he needs help."

To Achieve Ordered Liberty You Must Have Moral Order As Well
The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.
