Congressional wannabe John Callahan has slammed incumbent Charlie Dent for his vote to support the $850 million Wall Street bailout. In a news release published at PolitcsPa on May 20, Callahan huffs that "[t]his banking bailout bill had so little oversight that failed AIG CEOs were able to use taxpayer money for multimillion-dollar bonuses. In fact, when given the opportunity to vote to prevent future taxpayer funded bonuses, Charlie Dent again voted for Wall Street CEOs." Guess what? Callahan now admits he would have voted for it himself.

The Evil Shawn Millan, Dent's campaign manager, gets in this little zinger: “This is an example of phony outrage from a phony candidate. Callahan’s hypocritical stances make it clear he is only interested in partisan pandering, not serious policy discussion.”
In the meantime, Callahan has started an online petition to hold Charlie accountable, damn it! After you provide your vitals, it hits you up for money.
