Joe Wilson should remember who he works for

South Carolina Republican Congressman Joe Wilson promised that he would vote against CAFTA (Central American Free Trade Agreement), but his last second unannounced switch ended up providing the margin for passage.
Wilson insisted he would oppose the legislation because it would threaten textile jobs in South Carolina. He told The State newspaper on June 13, 2005: "I want to do what I can for what still (textile jobs) exists."
Today, South Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Joe Erwin made the following statement regarding Wilson's sudden change of heart: "Joe Wilson gave us his word that he'd fight for South Carolina jobs but instead he secretly joined forces with the likes of Tom DeLay. While Joe Wilson's relationship with Tom DeLay continues to flourish, regular people in South Carolina are getting left out in the cold."
Tom DeLay, who is currently being investigated for several potential ethics violations, will host a fundraising golf tournament in Hilton Head for Wilson's re-election campaign on August 19th.   "I don't want to ruin their golf match down in Hilton Head, but Joe Wilson needs to understand that he works for people in South Carolina - not Tom DeLay," Erwin said.
