Blue America Welcomes Back Our Old Friend, Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy

You may have noticed, that with the exception of Alan Grayson, there haven't been any incumbents on the Blue America endorsement list this year-- at least not until now. Ohio freshman, Mary Jo Kilroy, who we worked so hard to elect in 2008 and who has been such a stand-up progressive fighter is, like Grayson, under severe attack from the GOP. And the DCCC has taken a hands-off approach so far. Today Mary Jo is joining us for a live blogging session below in the comments forum and Congressional Progressive Caucus chairman Raúl Grijalva has offered to personally match every donation up to a thousand dollars we can raise for Mary Jo on our Blue America page this afternoon. I hope you'll chip in what you can.

Most readers here have probably heard most recently about Mary Jo because of the letter that she drafted, with the help of Grijalva and Grayson, to prevent the Cat Food Commission from trying to balance the budget on the backs of Social Security recipients. But that kind of legislative attitude is what regularly made Mary Jo Kilroy such a valuable leader for ordinary working families-- and, of course, a target for the special interests and their Republican allies. Normally she and Grayson are hard at work inside the House Financial Services Committee looking out for the interests of ordinary middle class families, instead of the bankers and special interests lobbyists who feel so very entitled to be served by that committee. (Her opponent, Steve Stivers, I might add, is not just a close ally of John Boehner's, he's also a career-long banking lobbyist eager to repeal Wall Street Reform.)

This week Stivers and Boehner were hysterical over a widely popular bill Mary Jo wrote, the Medical Debt Relief Act, which is meant to prevent credit bureaus from using paid off or settled medical debt against consumers seeking car loans, home mortgages and the like. The problems addressed have affected nearly 72 million working-age adults who have some sort of medical debt listed on their credit reports. The bill passed unanimously through mark up. The bill passed unanimously in the Committee; not even the worst reactionary Wall Street shills dared to vote against it-- and it should have passed by a voice vote but Boehner, sensing the House was about to give Mary Jo a big legislative win, decided to cause problems, and placed a hold on the bill requiring Republicans and Democrats to negotiate whether or not a recorded vote would be necessary. The Republican Study Committee then got into the act claiming the bill would have all sorts of false unintended consequences, straight up fabricating a rationale for Republicans to vote against it. Mary Jo swung into action and beat back Boehner's purely partisan attempts to destroy the much needed legislation. More Republicans voted with Mary Jo (87) than with Boehner (81) and the bill passed with a huge bipartisan majority, 336-82.

Since being elected, Mary Jo Kilroy played a very active role in crafting Wall Street reform regulations. She authored key provisions, including one that would end the credit rating bureau's ability to stamp AAA ratings on junk mortgage assets by putting serious penalties on them for approving bad assets. She was one of the key players and proponents in ensuring a strong Consumer Financial Protection Board and she was one of two freshmen to serve on the Wall Street Reform Conference Committee where she fought behind the scenes against the Senate for greater consumer protections. Along with Obama's new chief of staff, Peter Rouse, she was the first Member of Congress to call for Elizabeth Warren to head the CFPB.

Stivers, who she beat in 2008 by less than 2,000 votes, is being financed by the banking industry and by all kinds of right-wing special interests eager to take out Mary Jo. Currently he has $1,242,961 in his warchest to her $933,626 (figures as of the June 30 FEC report). He's part of the disgraced GOP Young Guns program and they, along with GOP front groups, are funneling large amounts of money into this key race. Almost all the Democrats likely to lose in November are Blue Dogs who have courted failure by voting with the GOP and betraying the base. Mary Jo-- like Carol Shea-Porter and Alan Grayson-- are the exceptions. The nature of their GOP-leaning districts and their refusal to back away from middle class values and Democratic principles are what has made them targets for the far right. Last weekend the Columbus Post Dispatch had this to say about the race:

Unlike many other Democrats elected in swing districts, Kilroy did not shy away from taking liberal positions on issues. She was an enthusiastic backer of President Barack Obama's health-care reforms and economic-stimulus package, voting to raise the debt ceiling to accommodate the spending. And she played a key role in crafting tough new regulations on Wall Street practices.

Kilroy's supporters say she fits the profile of a hard-working, policy-oriented freshman. Backers of Republican rival Steve Stivers, however, say Kilroy has consistently sided with liberal interests in Washington, ignoring the centrist nature of a district that includes parts of Columbus, its western suburbs and rural Madison and Union counties.

Stivers wants this year's election to be a referendum on Kilroy's policies, particularly on the economy and federal spending. Kilroy wants it to be a referendum on Stivers himself and what he represents-- seven years as a top lobbyist for a banking company.

"People in the 15th (district) have a very clear choice," Kilroy said. "They can vote for someone who spent a career as a banking lobbyist and supported the kinds of policies that led to the recession and 'too big to fail,' or they can support someone who has been a watchdog and an advocate for the middle class. I think it makes a difference that people know I'm on their side."

Left jab of the day by Blue America and Americans for America: Alaska's Craziest Catch-Joe Miller

THE CRAZIEST CATCH: Alaska's Joe Miller.

John Amato

Blue America PAC and Americans for America have teamed up once again and bring our newest ad. it's safe to say that Joe Miller represents the teaBirchers perfectly. They'd rather see working class Americans go bankrupt when they lose their jobs, go without food and medical care when they are retired except of course if they have plenty of cash. Helping every day Americans for Teabirchers is like making Vampires drink holy water. Their insides begin to burn until their bodies explode. It's too bad because many of the people voting for TeaBirchers someday will have to face the consequences of their actions and it won't be a pretty site for them, but more importantly it will be hell in America for most of our citizens.

Here's some of our our press release:

Blue America PAC and AmericansforAmericaPAC.com, two cutting edge Netroots political action committees, are launching a daily video campaign targeting GOP/Tea Party candidates every day from today through Election Day, November 2.

Target #1: Joe Miller, the GOP/Tea Party Senate nominee in Alaska, who stunned mainstream Republicans by defeating Sen. Lisa Murkowski.

The PACs’ 1st video – Joe Miller: Alaksa’s Craziest Catch – presents Miller’s radical tea party as part of a parody of the hit Discovery Show <i>The Deadliest Catch</i>.

The script features an announcer similar to The Deadliest Catch, and a fisherman, responding to Joe Miller’s radical policy proposals, shouting distress signals:

– ANNOUNCER: From Barrow to Dutch Harbor, Joe Miller is Alaska’s Craziest Catch

– FISHERMAN: Man overboard!

– ANNOUNCER: Say goodbye to crab pots – and hello to Joe’s crackpot ideas.

– FISHERMAN: Reality overboard!

– ANNOUNCER: Like privatizing Social Security and Medicare...

– FISHERMAN: Grandma overboard!

– ANNOUNCER: And making unemployment illegal

– FISHERMAN: Women &amp; children overboard!

– ANNOUNCER: Joe even wants to reject money for Alaska’s roads and airports.

– FISHERMAN: Alaska overboard!

– ANNOUNCER: Joe Miller. Alaska’s Craziest Catch.

– FISHERMAN: Abandon ship!

Blue America PAC – organized by leading progressive blogs CrooksandLiars.com, Hullabaloo, and DownWithTyranny.com – is raising funds to air the spot on Alaska TV.

We are fundraising to air this ad on Alaskan TV so please do your best in supporting our actions. We're not sitting around idly while others just complain. Please help us and Meet Joe Miller, Alaska's Craziest Catch of all. Well, there is someone who might be able to top him.



Blue America Welcomes Back Jack Conway (D-KY)

Today Blue America is helping Kentucky Attorney General and Senate candidate Jack Conway kick Rand Paul's ass from Ashland to Hickman, Covington to Harlan. Today? Yes, today is Jack's money-bomb and we want to make sure he beats the $246,000 the uncertified Texas eye doctor so... here's the place. Yesterday he told us about his plans to help Congressman Mike Capuano get his Shareholder Protection Act through the Senate next year. Capuano's bill, H.R. 4790, requires a shareholder vote on a corporation’s proposed political budget, giving shareholders the opportunity to weigh in on the use of these funds. January’s Supreme Court decision on Citizens United v. FEC established that corporations cannot be prohibited from spending general treasury funds on political campaigns because it would violate their free speech rights. Capuano's legislation gives shareholders the ability to exercise their free speech rights by voting to approve or reject these expenditures. The Supreme Court decision effectively increases the influence of money in politics and diminishes the voice of the voter. Conway, like Capuano, thinks we should be working to limit outside influence on elections, not giving corporations a louder voice. The legislation is a simple and direct way to ensure that corporate political expenditures reflect the will of the shareholders, since the money in question belongs to the shareholders.

Jack told us he's been sickened by the way the Citizens United decision "opened the floodgates for corporations and special interests to spend millions of dollars attacking candidates in pursuit of their own agendas."

However, this bill requires a shareholder vote on a corporation’s proposed political budget and would give shareholders a say in how the funds are spent. It also makes the corporation report how it spent its political dollars, after the fact, so the real owners of the company-- the shareholders-- know where their money went.

Last week, a corporate-funded group led by George W. Bush’s chief strategist Karl Rove launched a second attack ad against me in as many weeks. Rove's special interest attack group, American Crossroads, has pledged to spend 49 million corporate dollars attacking Democrats this fall and boosting people like Rand Paul.

I need your help fighting back against Rove and Rand Paul. Paul said he opposes provisions of the Civil Rights Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and federal student financial aid, such as college loans. I disagree. These laws and initiatives reflect core American values like equal rights and opportunity. We should be standing up for these values, not tearing them down.

Jack's going to be joining us at 11am (PT) below in the comments forum for a free-ranging question and answer session. We'll do our best to hold the Ron Paul shills at bay but please join in-- and please consider donating to Jack's effort at our Blue America Senate page.



Blue America Welcomes Our Old Friend Alan Grayson Back For A Live Chat

Congressman Grayson's clip above is positively existential. It's hard to believe it's coming from a Member of Congress. Of course, it's hard to believe there's a Member of Congress of Alan Grayson's calibre. And I get the feeling there are an awful lot of people in the Orlando area who know just how lucky they are. On the other hand, Alan has drawn a veritable circus sideshow of opponents, each one fringier and more insane than the other. Tomorrow is primary day in Florida and we'll be watching with interest as a small number of disheartened and disillusioned Republicans pick over the 4th and 5th tier candidates hoping for the nomination-- from Patricia Sullivan who (publicly) claims Sarah Palin as a role model, Dan Fanelli who proudly (and publicly) flies his racist flag for everyone to see, to the kook, Ross Bieling, whose platform is impeaching President Obama and the hate talk radio guy, Todd Long, who was found passed out drunk one morning in front of a local elementary school to a state legislator, Kurt Kelly, who disgraced himself last month by interpreting Rep. Grayson's efforts to bring the troops home to safety as wanting them to die and then to the feeble fave of the Establishment, Dan Webster, who's best known for pushing a radical religious agenda that has included ending the right of divorce and introducing the legislation that started the whole tragic Terri Schiavo debacle. And on top of that the Florida TEA Party has nominated Peg Dunmire, someone even nuttier than that crew -- well, not nuttier than Fanelli -- running as well.

Goal ThermometerAnd then there's Alan Grayson, probably the most beloved and effective champion of ordinary working families of any Member of the House. Today's the climax of a moneybomb his campaign launched a few days ago. Blue America has our own goal for Alan's campaign, an even $50,000. As you can see from the thermometer on the right, we're more than two-thirds there. I hope you watched the video up top. It knocked me out. Here's some of what Orlando's greatest gift to America had to say:

There are two groups in this country right now. I call those groups Us, and Them.

We want more jobs, better schools, better health, better pensions, and we want to keep our homes. We want not just jobs but jobs that mean something, jobs that pay a decent wage. We want to live a good life.

And then there's them. They simply have one goal and one goal only. And that is to destroy the government. They're not conservatives. They're anarchists.

I don't know why they want anarchy. In fact, they don’t know, either. Even they don't know what kind of inner darkness causes them to seek wars without end, to burn the planet, to welcome poverty for so many, to leave the old and the sick helpless, to cheer oil in the Gulf. I've spoken to enough of them to be able to tell you that they themselves don’t know why.

But that's what they want. So, now we have to decide who is going to run this country. Is it Us, or is it Them? And what's at stake is the future. The future in a country that my five children will live in, that your children will live in, that you'll live in for the rest of your life.

Are we going to have a country with a decent middle class life for everyone-- jobs, health care, roads, schools? Or, are we going to have poverty, cheap labor, helplessness and hopelessness? The choice is yours.

I think President Obama feels much the same way. I wish he had the guts to say it the way Alan Grayson does. Please, if you only contribute to one campaign this year, it's Alan Grayson who has earned that honor. Please join us below in the comments section to participate in a love blogging session with Congressman Alan Grayson.



Blue Dogs have no loyalty or shame. Case in point: AZ's Gabby Giffords

Media error

Rep. Gabby Giffords is the perfect example of why Democrats in Congress should shun Blue Dogs.

Howie Klein explains:

Giffords is looking like the point of the Blue Dog spear being thrust into the House progressive infrastructure. As we pointed out over the weekend, despite Pelosi's efforts to tamp it down, the Blue Dogs are going on the warpath against progressive Democrats, using Henry Waxman's interview with The Hill as an excuse. One thing we can always be sure of inside the Democratic Caucus-- well, two, actually: Blue Dogs will always put self-preservation above the party’s principles, and the DCCC will do whatever it can to help them get re-elected.

Giffords is emblematic of the tragic turn the House Democratic Party has taken. Over the weekend she launched a $350,000 ad buy in the Tucson media market that slams the principled stand Grijalva took against SB1070-- throwing him directly under the bus in order to make herself look sufficiently xenophobic for the bloodthirsty Know Nothing mobs. As you can see in the ad, she makes a solemn vow to fight “these groups” who have protested this unjust law by boycotting the state. “These groups” include Latinos, liberals, and citizens across the country who know an injustice when they see one. She's directly targeting Grijalva, Arizona's most progressive leader and the Congressman who most consistently stands up for those who are hurt by the right wing’s agenda.

We hear that other campaigns, pollsters, donors and politicians joined Grijalva's staff in futile attempts to show Giffords the obvious-- Democrats using other Democrats as punching bags is bad news for everyone. And when DCCC leaders, such as Vice Chair Wasserman Schultz, were approached with the argument that Giffords should not run the ad for obvious reasons, the argument fell on deaf ears. (Instead, they’re rewarding her behavior with close to a million dollars in independent expenditures.) It’s bad enough when so-called Democrats habitually vote against our agenda to save their seats, often with DCCC prompting. Now they're spending Democratic money to hurt real Democrats to save their seats.

Rep. Raul Grijalva is one of the true heroes in Arizona. He stood up against Arizona's odious and racist SB 1070 law when it was passed when most politicians remained silent. Howie, Digby and myself are supporting Grijalva's re-election bid because of his spine so we started an Act Blue page called: One America. We've raised over 4,000 dollars for him so far. Please pitch in if you can. The racism and xenophobia that we are witnessing is emblematic of the tried and true race-baiting tactics that the extreme right revels in and and it's seeping in to Democratic campaigning now too. Unfortunately for this great nation, our history is littered with this intolerable technique at the expense of minorities that live here. It's sad and embarrassing. The way to battle this kind of cancer is to point it out and expose it to the sunlight. Like all malignant ideas, bringing light to darkness always has a cleansing effect.

Howie talked to Grijalva before we started to run these stories and his latest quote nails the situation perfectly:

Ed Schultz agrees with Blue America: John Boehner is the poster boy of out of touch Republicans

Ed Schultz just loved our anti-Boehner campaign and featured Blue America's Beat Boehner actions for almost 13 minutes. I think we can all agree that Boehner is an out-of-touch corporate shill who sides with Big Business over his constituents every time. Howard Dean came on to back up our assertions about Boehner and then Ed topped off the segment by interviewing one of our newest endorsees, Justin Coussoule, who is now running against the bronzed up Minority Leader. He is making his network debut too, and I think he comes across well.

Digby writes:

Ed Schultz was very excited about our Boehner campaign yesterday and opened his show with a long segment on the subject. He's absolutely right about John Boehner being the poster boy for the out of touch Republicans who are offering up nothing but non-sequitors as the answer to our problems.(You'll notice that Ed said to send him a email if you want to see the ad every day on his show. You can do that here.)

Howie Klein writes:

Big Ed liked our BeatBoehner billboard and TV ad. And we like his framing... a lot. Why can't the DCCC, demoralized, clueless and on the verge of losing its ass, dump Wasserman Schultz and let Schultz run the operation! There's nothing I have to even write about this. Schultz says it all-- everything! It's a 13 minute clip and there's not a minute of it you should miss. Ed's intro, Howard Dean's insight and Justin Coussoule's national TV debut are absolutely essential viewing.

Watch it here...

...and then consider helping us keep the ad on TV or even moving it from cable TV to broadcast TV. This ad is targeted in Butler county.

We are really excited by our latest effort and we hope you'll throw in a few dollars. And it's great to see that Big Ed gets it. Big Time.

(The thermometer on our page isn't updating for some reason. We've raised 3,082.00 so far and not only 295.00. Keep the funds coming and thanks.)

Joan Walsh of Salon writes a great article about Boehner:
Let them play golf: Boehner trashes aid bill as "a bailout to teachers unions" but backs tax cuts for the rich.

PGA Tour picks up Blue America's Beat Boehner Billboard and FOX finds he's got personalized "tees"

Media error

Well, well, well. Not only is our Beat Boewhner Billboards catchiung the imagination of Ohio and the media, but also the PGA Tour. "Quick 18"

PGAtour_c6656.jpg

14. The golfer-in-chief's post birthday round at Andrews Air Force Base this weekend was upstaged -- by his Dream Team style pickup game with the likes of Grant Hill, Shane Battier, LeBron James, Magic Johnson, Dwyane Wade and Carmelo Anthony. And lest you think President Obama is the only politician whose rounds are scrutinized, the Blue America Political Action Committee took on House Minority Leader John Boehner, who plays to a 7, with a billboard near Boehner's Cincinnati area neighborhood that asks, "When was the last time you golfed 119 times in one year?" Boehner's office said the number 119 is false but FOXnews.com reports he does have a glass filled with personalized tees for visitors to his office. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi even grabbed a few.

FOX election blog:

Golf is a big part of Boehner's persona. He golfs with a seven handicap. A glass cup just outside his Capitol office sports personalized tees that Boehner hands out to visitors. Even House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) collected a handful of them before she met with the Ohio Republican before a joint event earlier this year.

Fox says we spent 80,000 on the billboard. Hmmm, they didn't ask anyone of us to verify that.

I want one of those Boehner golf tees. Do you think Boehner will send me one if I ask? Why don't you call his office and ask for one too, especially if you live in his district.

Be nice and you might snag one.

Media error

Rand Paul's controversial and insane beliefs have now transmitted into his life experience as a new profile that was published by GQ reveals. Smoking weed in college is no big deal but when that's added to kidnapping and forcing a female student to worship an 'Aqua Buddha," you've now entered the twilight zone, not to mention physically abusing a woman.

TPMDC:

Remember your college years? The test cramming, the questionable decisions when it came to alcohol, the even more questionable decisions when it came to dating? And who can forget that classic college prank -- the one where you kidnap a girl from the swim team, blindfold her, and try to force her to take bong hits before making her kneel in a creek and pray to "Aqua Buddha"?

What's that you say? You never tried that one? Well you must not have attended college with Rand Paul.

From a new profile of Paul's college years published by GQ:

The strangest episode of Paul's time at Baylor occurred one afternoon in 1983 (although memories about all of these events are understandably a bit hazy, so the date might be slightly off), when he and a NoZe brother paid a visit to a female student who was one of Paul's teammates on the Baylor swim team. According to this woman, who requested anonymity because of her current job as a clinical psychologist, "He and Randy came to my house, they knocked on my door, and then they blindfolded me, tied me up, and put me in their car. They took me to their apartment and tried to force me to take bong hits. They'd been smoking pot." After the woman refused to smoke with them, Paul and his friend put her back in their car and drove to the countryside outside of Waco, where they stopped near a creek. "They told me their god was 'Aqua Buddha' and that I needed to bow down and worship him," the woman recalls. "They blindfolded me and made me bow down to 'Aqua Buddha' in the creek. I had to say, 'I worship you Aqua Buddha, I worship you.' At Baylor, there were people actively going around trying to save you and we had to go to chapel, so worshiping idols was a big no-no."

Paul's time at Baylor has become the talk of the Kentucky Senate campaign in recent days, after the Lexington Herald-Leader reminded everyone of the fact that Paul never graduated from the Baptist university in Texas.
---
Late Update: Politico's Ben Smith reports that Paul's campaign is dismissing the kidnapping story -- but not denying it.

We know have more insight as to why Paul would favor legalizing Pot. Will he push to decriminalize kidnapping? Baby Paul could be nicknamed Aqua Buddha now. This is another bizarre episode in the life of Rand and quite clearly he was either stoned out of his mind or found it acceptable to coerce a female student.

As Ben Smith points out, Rand Paul isn't denying the events at all.

Paul spokesman Jesse Benton didn't respond directly to Zengerle's question about the incident; I've e-mailed him to ask whether that story is true, and am also trying to reach the accuser.

UPDATE: Benton repeated his non-denial to me in an e-mail, adding: "We'll leave National Enquirer-type stories about his teenage years to the tabloids where they belong."

I've never heard the term 'teenage years' referred to when describing our college days, have you? Then there's the Skull & Bones secret society stuff he was involved with too. Being anti-religious is anyone's perogative, but this is just weird.

According to several of his former Baylor classmates, he became a member of a secret society called the NoZe Brotherhood, which was a refuge for atypical Baylor students. "You could have taken 90 percent of the liberal thinkers at Baylor and found them in this small group," recalls Marc Burckhardt, one of Paul's former NoZe Brothers. Sort of a cross between Yale's Skull & Bones and Harvard's Lampoon, the NoZe existed to torment the Baylor administration, which it accomplished through pranks and its satirical newspaper The Rope. The group especially enjoyed tweaking the school's religiosity. "We aspired to blasphemy," says John Green, another of Paul's former NoZe Brothers.

And so the NoZe Brothers would perform "Christian" songs like "Rock Around the Cross"; they'd parade around campus carrying a giant picture of Anita Bryant with a large hole cut out of her mouth after the former beauty queen proclaimed oral sex sinful; and they'd run ads for a Waco strip club on the back page of The Rope. In 1978, the Baylor administration became so fed up with the NoZe that it suspended the group from campus for being, in the words of Baylor's president at the time, "lewd, crude, and grossly sacrilegious."

And it also points out that he could possibly be lying about his "things would be better if everybody was a Christian" crap.

Appearing on The Brody File, Rand Paul, who believes that portions of the 1964 Civil Rights Act need "further discussion" and may violate private business owners' First Amendment rights, said that we wouldn't really need laws in this country if everyone were a good Christian:

I'm a Christian. We go to the Presbyterian Church. My wife’s a Deacon there and we’ve gone there ever since we came to town. I see that Christianity and values is the basis of our society. . . . 98% of us won’t murder people, won’t steal, won’t break the law and it helps a society to have that religious underpinning. You still need to have the laws but I think it helps to have a people who believe in law and order and who have a moral compass or a moral basis for their day to day life.

Although Paul attends a mainline Protestant church, in his comments one might hear an echo of Christian Reconstructionism. RD contributor Julie Ingersoll, an expert on Christian Reconstructionism, once described it to me this way: "Reconstructionists claim to have an entirely integrated, logically defensible Christian worldview. Reconstructionism addresses everything you have to think about." In other words, as a society we should follow (preferable) biblical law, and dispense with all but a small handful of civil laws.



Blue America's John Boehner TV ads going LIVE....Please keep them running!

(New John Boehner ad. New John Boehner ad. New John Boehner ad.) You can see how much his golf habit costs him. How much do you spend just on your groceries?

Since our Beat Boehner Billboard has been such a hit with Ohio, the media and all of you, we've produced an ad with the help of Americans for America PAC. It's running in Boehner's district (OH-08) on Monday and we want to raise enough money to keep it running for as long as we can.

It's time we started taking the fight to these Corporate /Lobbyist/shills that dress up as Congressmen and wear embarrassing tans like John Boehner does. Check out his appearance on Meet The Press this Sunday:

Media error

Boehner makes a complete fool of himself because he refuses to answer Gregory's questions which ask him if tax cuts pay for themselves. Of course he can't be honest.

MR. GREGORY: That's not the question, Leader Boehner. The question...

REP. BOEHNER: And the people that the president wants to tax...

MR. GREGORY: ...is, are tax cuts paid for or not?...read on

And he admits to wanting to raise the retirement age to 70. This is the GOP working for you except they are working against you. It's too bad conservative activists believe failed Bush policies are the way to go. The more money Blue America raises, the more action items we can produce.
