Erin Brockovich should challenge Howard "Buck" McKeon in California 25
Although I am not sure how the congressional district is drawn and McKeon 's been in Congress for forever. He also has a huge Mormon following. Of all the congressional districts to have voted against legislation that protected people and the environment. Hinkley, California.

June 26, 2009 HR 2454 Energy and Environmental Law Amendments Bill Passed - House (219 - 212) NAY

Hugely corrupt member of congress, see PAC contributions.

1. I think she lives in the 30th, represented by Henry Waxman
A story in L.A. Observed last year said she lives in Agoura Hills, which is in Waxman's 30th District.

Nice thought, though. McKeon hasn't had a strong challenger.

8. I've been here a long time but I'm new to the forums-
BTW, after my first post here about my candidacy, I got the following comment on my Molina for Congress Wordpress blog -

mary commented:

You are a member of the crudest bunch of people to the left of Fidel Castro - over at democraticunderground? Why would anyone vote for you if you associate with trash like that?


I don't think I should approve her comment... I'll keep "Mary's" info private :crazy:

13. I am lucky enough to have campaign manager who says the same thing!
I like that photo of me 'cause I look like a no-nonsense bad-ass. We are working on smiley new photos of "the candidate" for next month when we sent material to the printers.

11. Can't see your facebook page
It gives me a login page, and I don't have a facebook account (and don't want one).

15. Yeah, but if she wants "average voter" to see her facebook page, she should change that.
Edited on Sun Nov-06-11 06:49 PM by bananas
I'm assuming she posted the link to her facebook page because she wants people to see it.
She may be unaware that many people can't.

16. Official web site is in progress
www.molinaforcongress.com

Yes, I am setting up the site myself! An artist friend has an snappy eagle logo for me with a Native American look. I think I'm the only indigenous person running for congress next year.

18. We have an astronaut with indigenous roots running in district 10
I posted it in LBN last month: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=102x5018432

Wikipedia says "His family is from La Piedad, Michoacn, with indigenous Purpecha roots.<3><4>" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jos%C3%A9_Hern%C3%A1ndez_%28astronaut%29

He flew on shuttle mission 128 to the ISS.

He seems like a really good guy.

Good luck to you!

14. That's my district!
Go get 'em! McKeon is a corporate whore and its long past time for him to join the ranks on the unemployed. Good Luck!
