An irritating, gossipy, and interesting article in the Huffington Post has some nasty suggestions to make about how Progressive Caucus co-chair Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey feels about activists who insist on dogging their members to produce what we elect them to do:
In the 1980s when progressives were working night and day to keep the Reagan administration from invading Nicaragua to overthrow its elected popular regime, we used to hear similar things from another stalwart. Former Congressman (now Oakland mayor) Ron Dellums had no equal as a Democratic spokesperson against Reagan's militarism and a high perch on the Armed Services Committee. But he didn't want to hear it from his constituents.
Send them to Washington long enough and they forget who put them there.
