Congressman Mike Honda has an inauspicious anniversary on the horizon, as his ethics scandal approaches its second year.
Mike Honda’s primary election defeat to Ro Khanna almost certainly spells deuces for the congressman, and people are jumping ship.
Rep. Mike Honda has blasted opponent Ro Khanna for receiving money from “right wing millionaires and billionaires.” But records show Honda has received at least $115,000 over the last five years from wealthy backers who also support the GOP.
In the digital age, election season never really hits its stride until opposing campaign staffers start beefing on Twitter. On Sunday, Andy Wong, a staffer for congressional candidate Ro Khanna, fired a tweet across the bow when he noted that Congressman Mike Honda (D-Fremont) had skipped his second candidate forum in as many days. Political consultant Barry Barnes noted in a reply tweet that Honda still nabbed endorsements from both forum hosts despite being absent, and the politician’s “track record speaks for itself.” And that’s when things started to get a little nasty.
