What About Bob?

Ever wonder what happened to former Delaware County Congressman Bob "The Rev" Edgar? Today he is the CEO of a liberal activist group called Common Cause.

Under his leadership, Common Cause is turning into a McCarthyistic smear group. It recently filed a frivolous complaint with the U.S. Justice Department asking it to investigate Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas for joining the majority in the Citizens United v. FEC. decision.

The Wall Street Journal's James Taranto accurately describes CC's smear campaign and its hypocrisy when it comes to its sanctimonious calls for civility.

I've always thought Edgar was a phony of leviathan proportions. He's proving me quite right.

More from Taranto here.

Since leaving office, Edgar wears/does not wear his clergyman's collar -- whichever is momentarily expedient.
Bob Edgar's real religion is Liberalism.
