Remember back in May when Republican candidate Steve Stivers attempted to walk back his response on a 9/12 Tea Party group’s questionnaire that asked if Steve Stivers would support repealing the 17th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution that allows for the direct election of the Senate by the people?

So, in order to deflect from John Boehner crying over the evil Democrats’ plan to regulate the helpless ant in Washington that is the major Wall Street financial industries, bank lobbyist Steve Stivers attacked Congresswoman Mary Jo Kilroy over comments that Speaker Pelosi made about GOP efforts to filibuster unemployment extension.
