He's got his dogs digging deep. First the stolen car thing now the gun thing. Next they will tell you he smoked a joint in the HS bathroom back in 1969.

Darrell Issa, within months of leaving Army service in the early 1970s, was arrested twice on illegal-weapons charges, including an incident in Michigan that led to a misdemeanor gun conviction, The Chronicle has learned. Issa's weapons arrests, when he was an ex-GI and college student, have come under new scrutiny as the millionaire San Diego County Republican attempts to oust Gov. Gray Davis in an unprecedented recall campaign. Issa's $1 million in donations have fueled the recall's momentum. In a news conference Tuesday, gun control groups attacked Issa as an extremist friend of the National Rifle Association who would threaten assault- weapons laws. [b]They showed a video in which Issa's campaign for U.S. Senate in 1998 operated a booth at a Los Angeles County gun show,[red] where high-powered weapons and Nazi memorabilia were being sold. [/red][/b] On the issue of gun incidents, Issa in the past has answered questions when asked but never volunteered information. He has talked in general terms about a gun conviction, but court records reviewed by The Chronicle show that Issa was twice arrested in 1972 on weapons charges -- once in Ohio, once in Michigan. -------------------------------- clip: Wilcox also blasted what he called the "goon squad" from anti-recall forces for releasing information about decades-old gun charges and showing a videotape of the Great Western Gun Show from May 1998, where the Issa campaign set up a booth. [b][red]The video showed people selling Nazi flags and German army helmets inside the show, along with hundreds of guns, [/red][/b]and a lone Issa worker sitting outside the entrance of the show in a booth with a large Issa sign. --------------------------------- If Red Davis doesn't get the boot you can blame the Nazis.[whacko]

Absolutely nothing, but you have to admit it's a funny read.[:D] I bought a bunch of Nazi stamps from a Philatelic convention before. Guess I better not oppose Red or I'll be associated with the Third Reich too.[rolleyes]
