How can we find out what politician's are a member of this org.?
If these "Progressives" think they can repackage their liberalism with a more appealing name, I think they may be mistaken. I didn't see one political advertisement (in the Washington DC - NYC/NJ/CT corridor) that proudly proclaimed a liberal politician or the "liberal" or "democrat" policies and/or values of that politician. Talk about the Third Rail of politics: I'd say it's the word "liberal"!
Traditional American song, sung in rounds to the tune of "Frere Jacques".
Are you sleeping, Are you sleeping,
And when the revolution comes,
We'll kill you all with knives and guns,

The most extensive reference to the D'Alesandro story is, not surprisingly, from the Baltimore Sun. It even has two quotes from her brother, Tommy D'Alesandro, III, who was, like his father, a Mayor of Baltimore. But none of those stories makes any mention that the City, under the D'Alesandros, was as crooked as a dog's hind leg.
None of those stories mentions what I did in my last column, that a rape charge and several corruption charges were squashed or dismissed against the younger Tommy D'Alesandro, by prosecutors controlled by the family and with the compliance of judges controlled by the family.
The Baltimore Sun article, while studiously ignoring the corruption in Baltomore at the time, does spend time and ink praising Nancy Pelosi for "learning constituent services" in working for her father and her brother. Given Pelosi's background of absolute loyalty to the Democrat "leaders" regardless of what they have done, it is no surprise that she took the lead in the House defending the conduct of Bill Clinton, and also no surprise that she was the only woman in the House to defend Gary Condit.
