Texas Democrats are trying to keep one of their own who wants to see President Barack Obama impeached from becoming the party’s nominee for a congressional seat once held by former U.S. House Republican leader Tom DeLay. Kesha Rogers, a follower of Lyndon LaRouche, was the party’s nominee in 2010 when she lost the race for the old DeLay seat to Republican Pete Olsen.
 
But according to the Texas Tribune, Democratic officials in Fort Bend County say little was known then about Rogers’ views, and they are now backing political newcomer K.P. George in the May primary in hopes of forcing her out of the race.
 
The party faces an uphill battle to unseat Olsen in District 22, which has long been a Republican stronghold near the Houston suburbs. But Steve Brown, chairman of the Ford Bend Democratic Committee, says he worries that the task ahead will be even harder if Rogers wins the primary.
 
“If I can figure out what that silver bullet is to make sure that she is not on my slate after May, then I’ll definitely do that,” Brown told the newspaper. “It’s my burden now to make sure voters in Fort Bend County know clear and well that Kesha is no Democrat.”
 
According to the Tribune, Rogers believes Obama should be impeached “for gross violations of the Constitution in the service of Wall Street imperialism.” The paper reported Monday that she is also calling for significant new federal spending in space exploration to avoid “mass extinction of the human species.”
 
Rogers, who received no support from the party in 2010, doesn’t seem particularly concerned about the criticism.
 
“If the only policy of my [2012 primary] opponent is the ‘Stop Kesha’ campaign, I don’t see that as something that’s really going to inspire the population,” she said.
