Blowing Up Stark

The San Francisco Chronicle eviscerates Rep. Pete Stark (D-CA) in an editorial endorsing his primary challenger, Eric Swalwell (D).

"Rep. Pete Stark should have retired by now. His performance in this campaign has produced cringe-worthy moments that show a mean-spiritedness and recklessness with the facts -- and a detachment from one of the region's critical issues -- that suggest it is time for change... Stark's disregard for the truth, not to mention basic decency, has been on embarrassing display in Campaign 2012."

Charles Mahtesian: "What's notable here is that the paper's liberal ed board is torching a reliably liberal congressman - and that's what makes the criticism so piercing."
