  •  Steve Cohen is a wonderful man (3+ / 0-)

    I got to know him and his wonderful staff last year when he was opposed in the primary by Nikki Tinker, a union-busting corporate attorney and Harold Ford-DLC clone.  Her supporters ran a nasty, anti-Semitic and homophobic smear campaign against Cohen, and what put me over the edge was when Emily's List supported and promoted Tinker over Cohen in spite of his terrific voting record on behalf of women.

    While we're desperately searching for progressives to primary the Harold Fords of the congress, it's frustrating that people are gunning for one of the best members of Congress with sleazy tactics that should be completely out-of-bounds for true Democrats.

    Send Steve some love.  He's an ally who deserves re-election.
