I'm from New Jersey and I'm outraged. I don't think I'm alone.

I'm outraged that top NJ Democrats like Senate President Stephen Sweeney worked hand-in-hand with Chris Christie to pass an anti-worker bill that some say is worse than Wisconsin's -- which Christie signed into law about two hours ago.

Democrats...were the deciding votes to block NJ workers from negotiating for better health care.

Democrats...took away promised benefits from retired firefighters, teachers, and police officers.

Are you outraged with me? If so, let's start holding these Democrats-In-Name-Only accountable.

Senate President Stephen Sweeney is the worst offender in NJ, and it's well known in political circles that he plans to run for governor.

Today, I'm pledging to do everything I can to help a bold progressive candidate defeat Stephen Sweeney when he seeks the Democratic nomination for governor. Will you join me? Click here.

Please pass this diary to every progressive you know. As more and more of us take the pledge, not only will Stephen Sweeney feel the heat but every Democratic politician in NJ will be on notice.

Over 1,000 2,000 people have taken the pledge on the PCCC's website so far -- that's a lot of volunteers!

I was the NJ Democratic Party's communications director several years ago. But today, I am disgusted and outraged at what some party "leaders" are doing.

As New York Democrats pass historic marriage equality legislation, NJ Democrats led by Stephen Sweeney killed marriage equality in New Jersey.

As Wisconsin Democrats show the nation how to fight, NJ Democrats led by Stephen Sweeney aided and abetted the national Republican war on working families.

Stephen Sweeney is part of the problem. Today, I'm pledging to be part of the solution by defeating him when he runs for governor. Click here to join me.

Then, pass this diary on. We're not alone.

After you sign the pledge, you can share this image on Facebook!

(I co-founded the Progressive Change Campaign Committee)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
