It's a shame Mary Jo can get a Pension from Congress, she has helped her colleagues grab all the special rights, and turned her back on the common people....She should have to draw unemployment compensation instead....Good Ridance!!!
She won't get a pension. A member of the House has to serve THREE terms before being vested. Kilroy will have to go back to skimming union dues for a living.

Ouch! Does that mean she will be back in Columbus trying to be a community organizer next? Maybe she thinks she could be president. Actually she has more experience that Obama did when he hookwinked his way to the whitehouse.

That is scary.

From the article: "...one in which voters seemingly wanted to take out their anger and frustration over the economy and high unemployment rate on incumbents - and particularly the party in power in the White House, House and Senate.
Unlike some vulnerable Democrats, Kilroy never distanced herself from Obama or House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. In conceding the race last night, she touted her work on two of the Democrats' signature initiatives: health-care reform and a new package of regulations over the financial industry."

NO! I wanted Kilroy gone because of what SHE considered important, for the horrible bills she voted for or was in favor of, when she should have listened to her constituents. The Health care bill is a nightmare, while we desperately needed health care reform, this bill was NOT the answer...it needed to be defeated and re-worked! Let's repeal, and re-write, the Health Care Bill! Cap & Trade is another folly Kilroy endorsed.(Didn't they change it to the Energy Bill? I know, it sounds soooooo much nicer - maybe they should have called it the Baby Bunny Bill! Apparently Kilroy didn't realize Ohio's energy is derived from coal. Cap & Trade punishes (big taxes) coal-fired energy producers, ergo Ohio energy user's (residents and businesses) electric rates would go through the roof (AEP historically passes the cost onto the user). Plus, businesses would hire fewer/fire, adding to the unemployment - just what we need!

Kilroy just lost; the people of Ohio won.

Wilson is the real prize in Ohio. It's very ahrd to get a Dem out of the OH 6 seat. Strickland had it forever.
congrats Bill Johnson. good riddance chuckie 'i voted for obummercare' wilson.
after that vote charlie came on the local evening newscast and said that he had received some threats and derogative comments, but none too severe. the worst that i said in the message i sent his email was that 'i sincerely hope you lose your job.'

now, i am sincerely happy that he has lost his job. good work, you voters.

hopefully our new 'leaders' will either repeal obummercare, or at least defund it.

we cannot afford any more socialist programs in this country. hell we cannot afford the ones we already have.

Dont feel badly for Mary Jo. She may open a charm school.

What a worthless witch. If you are too arrogant to congratulate your opponent, then you are too arrogant to represent me and I am glad I voted you and Nancy out. Good luck Stivers.

She showed what a witch (change that first letter if you want) she is. In my 60 plus years on this earth and watching hundreds of concession speeches, this is the first time I have seen someone so rude and arrogant that they did not congratulate the winner.She proved that we were right to throw her out of office. She really is a Pelosi clone.

Uh, so would you care to argue the FACTS, or do you just want to try and score humor points (which you didn't do by the way)?

I try not to be mean toward people, but you cannot help it toward Mary Blow Kiljoy. Just a mean, mean individual. It is a blemish on this community's reputation that such an individual represented us in Washington. People have criticized John Kasich for being mean, but deep down you know he had and has a care about central Ohio. Mary Blow Kiljoy only cared about herself and her radical, out of touch agenda.

This district was previously represented by Deborah Pryce. There are things I strongly disagree with her on. However, I always voted for her. She always represented central Ohio with class and distinction.

I met Steve Stivers once. I believe we have someone who will represent the community with class again.

MJK was the biggest embarrassment to ever come out of Ohio. Steve Stivers will restore dignity to the office. Maybe the Pelosi wannabe could get a job working for a charity, she seems to like giving away other peoples money to those who have not earned it.

Thank you Mary Jo for all you did for the 15th, Ohio and the country. But it's back to the old rule. Hell I would have taken Deb over this d-bag any day.

Like a couple radio hosts say here in town, Mary Jo Kilroy is going to be working at the Citgo!
