I picked this up from Twitter, but it is painfully obvious no one wants anything to do with Ernie these days.

Representtive Doug Wardlow had a fundraiser on Sept 25, and featured a list of Republican guests, including Speaker Zellers and Majority Leader Matt Dean.

Representative Doug Wardlow sat a few desks away from Leidiger in the House.

The original invitation included Representative Leidiger, but he has since been removed and replaced by some empty space. I’m sure Ernie had a schedule conflict, and his being removed from the guest list had nothing to do with his tax problems, or the continuing saga of Ernie and the League of Women Voters.

That has to be it, right guys?
