A Real Loser Sues: The Entitled Politician

This is not a new story, but it reminds you that the 'will of the people' means nothing in the eyes of the Left.  When they can't get what they want through elections, they sue.

...Steve Driehaus, who voted for President Obama’s health care bill when he represented Ohio’s first congressional district, sued the [Susan B Anthony List] after it said his vote supported taxpayer-funded abortions. SBA had considered erecting billboards saying, “Shame on Steve Driehaus! Driehaus voted FOR taxpayer-funded abortion,” although the signs never went up.

Driehaus lost to Congressman Steve Chabot by a sizable margin.

Now get this:

Driehaus argued the proposed-but-never-erected billboards amounted to defamation and sued for loss of livelihood, because SBA’s opposition contributed to his seven-point defeat in 2010.

So.  SBA did not put up the signs.  A Lefty lost an election by SEVEN POINTS, a sizeable margin, after voting for ObozoCare.

Po' widdle Lefty sues because he "lost his job."

THIS is what the courts are for????

Cincinnati is overwelmingly conservative and German Catholic. The west side of Cincinati even more so.
He may have fooled us once in the first election, but not twice.

Driehaus did not have a snowballs chance in hell of winning his election after the abortion vote. He got what he deserved. If he can't find a job, he can just move somewhere else..... We will be better off because of it. No one wants to live by a child killing, abortion proponent. Please Mr. Driehaus, Shut up & move away

Demonstrates the sense of 'entitlement' many elected officials seem to feel about their jobs - mirrored by the sense of entitlement people in the public sector have demonstrated around here recently.
