WASHINGTON – There’s always money in the
banana stand government land. At least, that seems to be the case for Rep. Gary Miller (CA-31). His actions may fall short of light treason, but Miller’s shady real estate deals are still reminiscent of a certain California family. Theirs is the story of a wealthy family who lost everything, and the one son who had no choice but to keep them all together. His is the story of a real estate development family, and their favorite son who made no choices but to make them rich together. American Bridge wonders if you can tell the difference, at MillerOrBluth.com.
“Being forced to choose between two Republican candidates last November has left the voters of California’s 31st congressional district feeling blue,” said Chris Harris, communications director for American Bridge. “But voters should realize that re-electing Gary Miller would be a huge mistake.”
Miller’s ethical lapses could have been taken straight from the Bluth Company’s business model. His deal encouraging the city of Monrovia to buy his land was a lemon. Miller claimed a tax deduction under threat of eminent domain despite the state’s “no touching” policy. And it was neither a trick nor an illusion when he arranged legislation to benefit his largest campaign donors, then borrowed money from them to buy land.
Despite a decade of using his Congressional position for his personal benefit, Miller is hoping for the voters of California’s 31st to hop-on another reelection bid. After comparing him to George, Lucille, G.O.B., and the rest of the Bluth clan, they’ll see it’s time to return Miller from whence he came.
