  •  Fighting Dems rally in TX for Mary Beth Harrell (9+ / 0-)

    Scumbag John Carter sent out a fundraising letter labeling TX-31 candidate Mary Beth Harrell with the 'cut and run' smear. She's not in the military, but her husband and her two sons are. One son just returned to Iraq. John Carter is one of the Yellow Elephants who have never served.

    TX-23 candidate Rick Bolanos heard about the letter, and got mad. Rick led the Veterans for Kerry caravan through the southwest to combat that swiftboating, and he wasn't about to let some chickenhawk attack Mary Beth. He called Charlie Thompson (TX-05) and together they called the other Texas members of the Fighting Dems. John Courage (TX-21), Ted Ankrum (TX-10), Dan Dodd (TX-03), and Roger Waun (TX-13) joined Rick, Charlie and Mary Beth today to set the record straight.

    The press was well represented as the Band of Brothers stood up for their sister. The Renaud Brothers are doing a documentary on vets running for office, and have been traveling with Rick on the campaign trail. The documentary is planned for the Discovery Channel in the fall (hopefully before 11/7)

    I wish I had taken notes to report on the speeches, but trust me, words were not minced.
