Help a bloggah out?It has come to my attention that there are a number of Republicans running as fake Democrats across the state. I'm not talking about conservadems or Blue Dog Democrats, conservative Democrats that are "Democrats in Name Only" (DINOs.) I'm talking about dyed-in-the-wool Republicans pretending to be Democrats. I already have identified a small handful but I need your help finding the rest. I want to publish this piece no later than Wednesday so time is of the essence. I need proof that these people are, in fact, Republicans. It could be information from their website, emails they've sent, Facebook page screenshots. Whatever you have, I'm asking you to send it along. This post is going to be a bit of a reverse-voters guide; an attempt to identify as many of these liars as possible and expose them for who they are so that people don't accidentally vote for them, particularly in next week's primary. So, if you know of a fake Dem in Michigan, I'd like to hear from you. You can contact me by clicking HERE. Thanks. - Chris
Success doesn't happen by accidentI'm getting ready to head to Detroit to the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) national conference at the Cobo Center where Anne and I will get to meet Vice President Joe Biden and Dr. Jill Biden this afternoon. It's a significant day because we are now officially 100 days away from the general election where America will repudiate the Republican party and its ties to wealth & corporate power and give our vote to the team that works for average Americans -- Biden & Obama. What will YOU do with the 100 days you have left? After the jump is a new video by the Obama campaign, showing the last 100 days before the election through the eyes of an OFA volunteer. It's worth a look.
If you have to stop people from voting to win, your ideas suck.
Two startling admissions by Republican officials in the past few months have been noted and then allowed to fade into the torrent of information fed at us each and every day. We cannot let this undeniable proof that our democracy is being subverted be allowed to slip into our browsing history like a nipslip or hilarious Bill Murray sighting. This is one instance when the power of the Internet to share and reshare information must be utilized to spread what the media won’t or can’t.
I’ll risk injecting all the gravity I have to say a simple fact: your right to vote is at stake in the 2012 election.…
The International Tour of Shame and Embarrassment continues, Romney campaign calls London mayor “eccentric, odd”
Keep going, Mitt! You're doing GREAT!The Mitt Romney International Tour of Shame and Embarrassment™ continues to provide "interesting" insight into his foreign affairs skills (or utter lackthereof.) The tabloid Daily Mail reports that a Romney campaign official called London mayor Boris Johnson "eccentric, odd". The official also said that Romney wasn't well prepared for a trip of this magnitude. Apparently Mitt Romney needs to be briefed on how not to act like an embarrassing buffoon with the social graces of prep school bully when he's abroad. His campaign staff need similar briefings, too, it appears.
Here's to a little sunshine shining inStarting today, supposedly nonpartisan groups like Karl Rove's Crossroads GPS are going to have to change their ways or reveal who their donors are. And revealing who their donors are is something that they simply will not do. Last March, I wrote about a lawsuit filed against the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) by Rep. Chris Van Hollen. The resulting case, Van Hollen v. FEC. I wrote about it because U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson had thrown out a 2007 FEC ruling that allowed some funders of political ads to remain anonymous. Today, new rules go into effect and they are a BFD.
Everything old and evil is new and evil againNot much to say. Just watch the video. It's short and to the point.
Progress Michigan to file complaint against GOP Rep. Ouimet for campaigning with House resources, Driskell calls for him renounce Bolger
INOKIYAR - It's NOT okay if you're a RepublicanYesterday I posted a piece talking about Michigan Republicans circling their wagons to protect election fraudster House Speaker Jase Bolger. I also revealed that Rep. Mark Ouimet used his House email account to campaign , slamming his "opponent" for being a big spender. Today, Progress Michigan announced that they are filing a complaint against Ouimet based on the email he sent to me.
