There's nothing quite like a politician scorned.Talk about a sore loser (emphasis on "loser"). If we've learned nothing else over the last few years, we should at least have learned that the link between the Democratic Party and democracy is extremely tenuous.
When voters in Ohio's 1st Congressional District threw Democrat Steve Driehaus out of office after only one term, he did not bow out gracefully. No, he decided to get even. So he did what anyone does in today's culture: he sued somebody.
Charging that its activities contributed to his defeat and thus to his "loss of livelihood," Driehaus is suing the Susan B. Anthony List, a group that supports pro-life candidates for Congress and which has been one of the leading and most effective organizations involved in the fight to cut off federal funding to Planned Parenthood.
