It is starting to get, well, kind of bad. The San Francisco Chronicle – not precisely a hotbed of conservative activism – has collated some of the things that Stark has been saying lately:
- Accused a primary opponent of taking hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes;
- Accused one of the Chronicle’s own (conservative) reporters of contributing to his primary opponents campaign;
- And… well.
The 80-year-old Democrat, in a meeting with Chronicle editors and reporters this week, appeared to be confused about Solyndra, the Fremont solar power company whose collapse has fueled Republican criticism of the Obama administration’s energy policies this election year.
“I wish I had enough expense allowance to get one of those new S’s that Solyndra’s going to make down there – the electric car,” Stark said, after being asked about the company. “They run $60,000 to $90,000.”
