About Me

Ran for US Congress in 1990 from the left. Chairperson of 1989 city advisory initiative calling for 10% reduction in military spending to be divided among deficit reduction and mass transit and social services. Being a miliary town nobody thought we'd get on the balllot let alone win with 64% of the vote. Former chair of peace and justice project for a UMC congregation in Tacoma, Washington.

Voter Supression Laws (Photo ID)

I know we need to litigate in the courts and fight with our state legislators to oppose ID laws that are punitive and whose goal is to suppress the poor and minority vote. Yes let's do that...but also what we need is a coordinated liberal/progressive NATIONAL FUND DRIVE with all progressive, group, agencies and blogs taking part. Use this mony to pay for the proper ID and the transpo to get there, By the time we could get all these overturned the election might be over. Just IMHO
