James Amann to 146,578 Democrats: F-you

In the ultimate act of betrayal to the Democratic Party, THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE, James Amann will announce today that he'll support the independent candidacy of Joe Lieberman.

This is an absolute outrage and Amann has crossed a line and should be held accountable for his action.

Again, THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE, James Amann has just refused to accept the outcome of the primary in which over 280,000 people voted against his man. Why is he allowed to get away with this without at least being chastised by State Central or other Democratic colleagues.

Amann's act is unacceptable and not only does further damage to the Democratic Party, but gives the green light to other Democrats who are ready to jump ship such as State Senator Bill Finch and Pat Dillon.

Enough is enough. The people have spoken and there should be a price to pay for Amann's action.

Again, HE'S SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE and his action should have serious consequences. In my opinion, Amann just kissed his position "good-bye."

I can only hope that another true Democrat will take advantage of this latest development and challenge him for his seat as he's no longer fit to be Speaker of the House let alone a Democratic Represenative for Milford.
