Congressman Markwayne Mullin says he doesn't have enough influence to make a difference, yet. So he needs to stay in congress longer than the three terms he had pledged to limit himself to. He has failed to get enough influence, so he wants to stay longer.
Mullin secured the services of a former talk show host (Eddie Huff), for this carefully-crafted video.
Cindy Mullin said that God did not tell them to seek this 4th term. But neither did they acknowledge that Mark's word is his bond (as his revered biblical text plainly puts it).
Mullin further described his original mindset when seeking a 1st term. He describes a gullible, and naive man that he says he was, when he ran as a man of the people. A local businessman who knows so little that he cannot be expected to be effective.
What Mullin carefully avoided, is the narrative that he has been reprogrammed by "the DC swamp". The video release is a carefully crafted PR stunt to soften the reality that he is now a liar. But he does not ask forgiveness for lying. Instead he seems to ask forgiveness for being so gullible and stupid, when he was first running for office as a "man of the people".
Mullin is now a very wealthy businessman with deep pockets and a lot of special interest money funding his re-election. He is not a "little David" facing a Goliath of the DC power establishment. No, he is the 'Goliath'.
Randy Kreigbiel of the Tulsa World first broke the story. Read his full report, here...
The end result is that Mullin is breaking his word. But perhaps he did that many years ago, & we are just now finding out.
