I live in DC now and work with progressive organizations on messaging and GOTV. I've lived in Chicago, St Louis, Seattle, and NYC. But, you would never know it from my accent, I grew up in rural Georgia and Paul Broun is the Representative from my childhood hometown.
He's also obviously not a good fit for the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology. As this article shows: http://www.politico.com/...
I'm offended by this guy on a lot of levels when I read up on some of the stuff he says and does.
More importantly, I am offended that he seems to have a monopoly on a seat that includes not just my childhood home but also Athens, home of the University of Georgia. In this year's election, as far as I have seen, no one is running against this clown.
I'd really like to see candidates from the left contest every race in the country...damn it.
