Steve Pestka Facebook page sheds hundreds of “Likes” after allegations that he bought them

Run away! Run away! My piece last week titled “Is Democrat Steve Pestka buying Facebook “Likes” for his MI-03 campaign page?” ended up making a pretty big splash. It got picked up by Mario Aguilar at Gizmodo and then John Aravosis at AMERICAblog. Both pieces took Pestka to task for what seems to clearly be a purchase of Facebook likes […]

MONEY BOMB for Trevor Thomas: a true progressive taking on two millionaires in MI-03

A Campaign for us ALL

Trevor ThomasMichigan’s 3rd Congressional District is currently represented by Tea Party member Justin Amash. Polling shows that Amash is vulnerable and that this seat is actually competitive for Democrats. In February, I wrote about the Trevor Thomas filing paperwork to unseat Amash. Here is what I wrote about Thomas a week before he announced:

After spending some time speaking to Trevor Thomas, I came away impressed. He is smart, eloquent, fiery, and charismatic. He is a passionate advocate for the middle class and those without a political voice. At the same time he is pragmatic and a realist. I believe he will appeal to a broad section of Michigan voters. He is pro-Choice, a supporter of the rights of young people, vets and union members and he is decidedly NOT an establishment candidate, something that many voters will find compelling in the current political climate.

Today I’m joining a host of other bloggers in a blog swarm to help the “Campaign for us all” raise some funds. You can contribute to Thomas’s “Campaign for us all” HERE. It’s important to contribute TODAY because his campaign has a critical fundraising deadline in the next 24 hours.

Justin Amash votes against extending middle class tax cuts, Trevor Thomas responds

Tax cuts for the rich, but not for YOU I don’t know exactly how a tea party politician like Congressman Justin Amash does it exactly, but somehow this guy can justify supporting extending the budget-busting Bush tax cuts but not the middle class tax cuts. But that’s exactly what he has done. Trevor Thomas, who is seeking the Democratic nomination […]
