Tea Partiers on Griffith: ‘We Do Not Trust Him’

In my piece on Rep. Parker Griffith’s party switch, I quoted Huntsville, Ala., Tea Party leader Christie Carden, one of the conservative activists not impressed by the move. Carden and her fellow Tea Party leaders have just put out a punchy statement on Griffith that makes it clear that they “do not support him” continuing in office.

Whole statement after the jump.

Yesterday, Alabama’s 5th Congressional District Representative, Parker Griffith, switched from the Democrat Party to the Republican Party.

Huntsville Tea Party leaders agree that, “While unexpected, this does not come as a huge shock to us. We believe Griffith made this choice in an act of desperation because be is afraid of losing the 2010 election.“

“Unfortunately for Parker Griffith, we have high standards for our next congressman, and choice excerpts from his voting record do not satisfy us. If you look closely at his record you will see that his first vote was for Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House, who is leading the charge for seemingly endless federal control over our lives, and you will see that he has voted with her 84% of the time.”

They added, “We do not consider him a constitutional conservative, which is one of our most significant criteria for candidates, or even a conservative at all. At the Huntsville Space & Rocket Center, when responding to a question about the constitutionality of the health care bill, he indicated that he is past that and that it would be like trying to put toothpaste back into the tube. He also did not deny, at a town hall over the summer, that he had voted with Pelosi about 75% of the time.”

“Over the past year, we have watched him pander towards different audiences. At August town halls he came out strongly against a government-run health care option. Yet, we have heard numerous accounts from local progressives, on talk radio and at town halls themselves, that before he was elected, in 2008, he was for a ‘health care for all’ type of option.” They concluded, “We are thankful for Parker Griffith’s committed stance on health care, and that he has voted against major socialist bills this year. However, we do not trust him and we do not support him as our next congressman. There are two excellent candidates that are already running in this race: Les Phillip and Mo Brooks. It is our hope and goal that the strongest constitutional conservative will win, and we look forward to participating in this important race.”
