Schiff May Be Facing a Challenge for His Seat From Dr. Drew!

As the popularity of Adam “Shifty” Schiff wanes, even by members of his own party, the Representative from California may be facing an unexpected challenger for his Congressional Seat – TV personality, “Dr. Drew.”

Addiction expert and reality show star Dr. Drew Pinsky is reportedly mulling a congressional run and is considering mounting a bid against his current congressman, who happens to be Schiff.

Pinsky, who has been an outspoken commentator on homelessness and the opioid crisis, recently told The Hill that seeing the impeachment hearings on television increased his desire to get involved in the political process.

“I was watching all the impeachment proceedings and I was going, ‘Oh my God, our Congress is tied up and we’re dying out here in California. What are these people doing?’ ”

Pinsky, 61, lamented the lack of action from Schiff, specifically with regard to the issues facing the homeless in the state of California. “I wake up every day and drive through this town and I am morally moved where I feel like I have to do something,” he said. “We have people literally dying in our streets.”

During an appearance on “Fox & Friends” just before the end of last year, Pinsky said the homelessness crisis is not limited to just housing issues and has more to do with drug use and mental health issues.

“The ideology is — this is a housing crisis. Period. End of story. It’s income inequality. [But] it’s not. It is a mental health crisis,” he said. “If you don’t wake up from that theological fog, more people are going to die. Three people die on the streets every day in Los Angeles County. Three every day, and people who get in the way of treating those people are murderers. They are, and I’m sick of it.”

The celebrity doctor claimed to be a moderate when it comes to his political stances and said he would likely run in the Democratic primary for the 28th District (Schiff’s District) if he decided to throw his hat in the ring.

Despite his newfound fervor for politics, Pinsky told The Hill that a run for office might prove too chaotic and could uproot his life. He left room for the possibility however and said California’s current decay continues to remind him of how badly the state needs strong leadership.

SOME HOW CONGRESS MADE ON OF THOSE MIDNIGHT LAWS AND DID AWAY WITH TERM LIMITS. BECAUSE I KNOW WE HAD IT. AT LEAST 30YRS AGO. THAT IS WHY WE ARE IN THE MESS WE ARE IN . SOME OF THOSE PEOPLE MADE A CAREER OUT OF IT AND GOT WEALTHY TO BOOT. THEY SNUCK ONE PAST US -WELL NO MORE. ONE THING MORE WE NEED IS GOOD AMERICAN PEOPLE WHO LOVE AMERICA AS WE DO. NO MORE FOREIGN NATIONALS– LIKE THE ONES YOU KNOW I’M TALKING ABOUT. THAT HAS BEEN IN CONGRESS FOR A YR NOW. AND THAT HATE AMERICA. LET ALONE WE NEED TO FIND OUT ABOUT THOSE 2,500 PEOPLE THAT OBAMA LET IN. AND THE CAIR AND MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD NEED TO GO.

    I hope you do. Him and Nancy both need to go. They’re too obsessed with impeaching the president because they don’t like him, instead of paying attention to their own state.

    Then this is a FAKE NEWS article. THEre is NOTHING he can do IN DC that will resolve LOCAL issues as the ones he describes EXCEPT attempt to fund and throw money at a new or existing department of government.

    I do have a SIMPLE solution. Anyone found with more than X ounces of drugs for distribution be sentenced to death (execution must take place within 36 months of conviction PERIOD as this gives time for Supreme Court review. Anyone found with more than Y ounces of drugs for distribution get 25 years. Anyone that wants help getting of drugs permanently gets ONE chance and the PEOPLE will help you. If you can’t do it in ONE chance then guess what…you get NOTHING, no help of any kind, no government money of any kind, no medical are of any kind in the future. Be willing to help anyone, but ONLY if they are willing to help themselves. Call it a LAST chance deal.
