Corrupt, Immoral, Liars - Welcome to the Republican Big Tent!

Republican Jim Galley is in the Republican primary race for the California 51st CD seat.

According to the San Diego Union Tribune, Galley has managed to garner the support of many of this fellow Republicans.

Although Galley, 50, has never held elective office, his campaign Web site says he is endorsed in Tuesday's primary election by a number of current and former Republican elected officials from San Diego County.

They include former Rep. Brian Bilbray, who is running to replace imprisoned former Rep. Randy “Duke” Cunningham in the 50th District; former Assemblyman Howard Kaloogian; El Cajon Councilman Bob McClellan; and Assemblymen George Plescia and Mark Wyland. The site says Bruce Ruff, who is challenging Sheriff Bill Kolender, has also endorsed him.

To this august group, apparently, just being a Republican is enough to earn their endorsement. But, according to the UT, Galley is much more than a staunch Republican. No, the UT says that Galley is also a bigamist, a dead-beat dad and an abusive husband. There's a trio of Republican family values.

Jim Galley, who is running for Congress as a “pro-traditional family” candidate, was married to two women at the same time, defaulted on his child support payments and has been accused of abuse by one of his ex-wives.
Apparently morality is only an issue to Republicans when its a Democrat whose behavior is in question.
