TRENDING: Republican retracts ‘socialist’ comment but not sorry – CNN Political Ticker - Blogs

TRENDING: Republican retracts ‘socialist’ comment but not sorry – CNN Political Ticker - Blogs

I know how this guy feels....I pointed out the extensive and longterm involvement of three Macomb County politicians---Ed Bruley, Fred Miller, and Brian Brydak, with the Detroit Chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America.

Don't believe that?

The following was posted on the Democratic Socialist of America’s website on February 6, 2007:

“DSA Hosts Successful Fundraiser for Macomb County Democrats

On Friday, May 14th, Detroit DSA hosted a wine and cheese fundraiser for three Macomb County Democrats: Brian Brdak and Bob Gibson (who are running for the Macomb County Commission) and Fred Miller (who is running for the state legislature). The three are protégés of former U.S.  Representative David Bonior. Our support for them is part of a strategy of creating a "farm system" for developing progressive candidates in Macomb County. The fundraiser was held at the home of David and Teena Green. We collected a total of $5980 from 36 different contributors.”

Prior to that, on the same Democratic Socialists of America website, the following announcement of the impending fundraiser was published:

“Our local will also be hosting a wine and cheese fundraiser for these candidates on Friday, May 14th from 5-8 PM. The fundraiser will be at the home of David Green (28292 Harwich Drive in Farmington Hills--near the intersection of Middlebelt and Twelve Mile Roads). Please plan to attend-- and bring your checkbook. Those unable to attend the fundraiser may still contribute to these campaigns. Simply make out separate checks to Brian Brdak for County Commissioner, Friends of Bob Gibson, and Friends of Fred Miller. Write "DSA Fundraiser" on the memo line of each check, and mail to: 

Detroit DSA
28292 Harwich Drive
Farmington Hills, Michigan 48334.”

Ask any one of them did they attend Democratic Socialist of American functions or accept campaign donations from the Democratic Socialists of America and see them cringe.

The minutes of these meetings were online, which is where I found them....Does it mean anything? You tell me!
