Dude, that's why it's called an elective office

Defeated Democrat congressman sues conservative group over election loss.
There's nothing quite like a politician scorned.

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.
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.

Ah, yes, you see - he's entitled to that job, haters! Telling the truth on him and convincing voters to vote for somebody else is a crime!

Next thing you know, they'll be deploying weapons-grade sarcasm!

He was denied his office by pro-life TERRORISTS! They should all be loaded up, and shipped to Gitmo!

I'd love to be a member of the jury, at that trial.

Ohio has long been an important state in American politics. I have to wonder why. It produces more nuts than Texas.

More nuts than Texas, and more fat presidents. Bwahaha!

This must be what democracy looks like.
