Terry Blasts Esch Over Comments in City Weekly

KETV-7 ran a story last night regarding a battle between congressional candidates Democratic challenger Jim Esch, on left, and Republican incumbent Lee Terry. Terry is upset over a comment on abortion that Esch made during an interview in last week's issue of the City Weekly.

Below is the KETV article. Here is a link to the video.

The KETV article in its entirety:

"Abortion Comment Heats Up Esch-Terry Race
Terry Demands Apology After Magazine Interview

OMAHA, Neb. -- The congressional race between Rep. Lee Terry and challenger Jim Esch is heating up after a statement Esch made about abortion opponents

Both candidates consider themselves opposed to abortion, but the Terry campaign is calling out Esch after he told the local magazine City Weekly that used the word extremist to refer to some abortion opponents.

“He said that pro-lifers are extremists. I don’t agree with that,” Terry said. “I think it shows his true colors on that issue.”

The Aug. 5 edition of the magazine posed a question to Esch about whether he would introduce or vote for legislation to restrict or outlaw abortions. In response, Esch spoke about the challenges of weighing the abortion issue philosophically.

“The other thing that frustrates me with that issue is you have two sides and really both, I think the right-to-life side is a little more extremist, but they think it says something fundamental about that person because they look at it as a strictly moral issue,” the magazine quoted Esch as saying.

“He owes all of the pro-lifers in the metro area and apology,” Terry said.

“Everyone is entitled to their own opinion on things,” said Dennis Esch, of the Jim Esch for Congress campaign.

Terry acknowledges that Esch may have misspoken during the interview, but also said it is evidence that Esch is not actually pro-life.

The Terry campaign’s accusations come through what is called its Truth Squad, a watchdog arm led by Richard Carter, who opposed Esch in the May primary."

No doubt. The City Weekly's Web site address is embarrassing. The Reader at least has a real address. AND it's a way better magazine!

Shut this piece of crap blog down, shut the shitty web site down and close the paper. give it up, CW!

First off all you people above me in this blog read it, closing it down would only give you less to bitch about. Then what would you sorry asses do. Secondly Lee Terry is about as credible as Mayor Fahey. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

My god. You people sure are doing a lot of complaining about a blog you obviously visit quite often. Why expose yourselves to that kind of distress?

As for Lee Terry. Don't worry about him. He signed a pledge in 1998 to only serve 3 terms. So he'll be out of office in 2004.

I love people like Jim Esch. Here is a guy who went to private schools his whole life. Then worked some public government lawyer job for a couple years. Next, he worked for the family real estate partnership. And this typical politician wants us to think he has a clue what it is like to work a real productive job in society instead of just milking at the government teet and living off of the family's wealth.

So, I just went into the crapper at work and someone destroyed the toilet and did not flush. But that is not too terribly uncommon. However, I did not expect to see some blood in with it. However, once again, this ended up not being the significant point. Rather, I was horrified when I realized there was NO toilet paper in there. Someone is walking around here with a shit and blood mix in their pants right now.

Both Esch and Terry should have been aborted.

Esch just looks like a tool. And Terry, well... he looks presidential.

The secret is to get your picture taken with Jim Esch, just look what it did for Calvert Collin's career. Crap KPTM 42 to Viva Las Vegas!!

Anonymous said...

Excuse me for getting back to the topic, but didn't Lee Terry prove Jim Esch's point?

Anonymous said...

No he didn't, because he never spoke about the legend of Travis Justice. That's where it all starts and stops.

So are we to abort Jim Flowers and/or Is Matt still gay??? I am confused...Skynard Rocks!

It would be nice if we had a "None of the Above" choice on the ballot in November for these two clowns.

Lee, dude, I'll spot you a 20 to go to Sports Clips and get a decent haircut. They'll throw in the neck rub for free and you can watch sports while they cut your hair. Leave the helmet hair to our Senator Ben.

Just leave the damn Flowbee at home on your next Midwest Airlines flight from Omaha to D.C.

Based upon the Spring ratings, KXSP is barely beating KMA a fringe signal from Shenandoah. Journal's broadcasting ratings are tanking all over as a group. It's only a matter of time with ad revenue down and ratings down that some action is taken.

Todd and Tyler kick ass! They always tell how they were cheating on girlfriends in their younger days, smoking weed, talking about how great they are, and how, without them, the Qwest Center would not be built!

Sony's PS3 has hit hard times. The company has slashed production costs by 35%, yet the console still sells at a loss.

Hails all! I have a budget tattoo salon in Los Angeles. Previously I bought all tattoo supplies at wholesale prices but my supplier committed suicide (believe it or not) so I'm trying to find a low cost tattoo equipment firm (better online one) to buy tattoo supplies from. Here is an example of what I am interested in: Tattoo Supply. Thanks a million in advance for any information guys! PM me or drop me some lines at: triple6tattoo@hotmail.com
