With that said, there is a Kleeb on the ballot this fall. It is, in fact, Jane Fleming Kleeb who is running for the Hastings, NE School Board. Unlike her husband, she's starting at the grassroots level.
But Jane's problems aren't just her husband. No, it seems that Nebraska Right to Life isn't overly convinced that Jane should hold office. So NRL has rented part of a booth at the Adams County Fair to 'inform' folks about Jane's liberal views.
Here's what they tell us about Jane in their recent missive:
- "WAS DIRECTOR OF CHANGE THAT WORKS-NEBRASKA IN 2009 DURING THE OBAMA HEALTH CARE LEGISLATIVE BATTLE. CHANGE THAT WORKS-NEBRASKA WAS FUNDED BY THE SERVICE EMPLOYEES INTERNATIONAL UNION WHICH SUPPORTED THE HEALTHCARE REFORM BILL, WITHOUT ANY INCLUSION OF PRO-LIFE LANGUAGE IN THE BILL."
- "JANE FLEMING KLEEB SUPPORTED SENATOR BEN NELSON’S VOTE FOR THE HEALTHCARE BILL WHICH NATIONAL RIGHT TO LIFE AND NEBRASKA RIGHT TO LIFE OPPOSED."
- "SHE MADE A PUBLIC STATEMENT ON HER TWITTER ACCOUNT REGARDING HER OPPOSITION TO PRO-LIFE LB 594, THE WOMENS’ HEALTH PROTECTION ACT, WHICH WAS PASSED BY THE NEBRASKA LEGISLATURE IN APRIL, 2010."
- "SHE IS CURRENT DIRECTOR OF BOLD NEBRASKA, AN ORGANIZATION WITH A GOAL OF PROMOTING “PROGRESSIVE” POLITICS IN NEBRASKA.
Actually, if the Nebraska Republican Party were smart, it would get on the bandwagon in this effort as well--if only to stem her political future now rather than later after she's held some form of elected position.
