  • DCCC website was ridiculously easy for Guccifer 2.0 to hack

    The security for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) website was almost non-existent which made it easy for Guccifer 2.0 to hack. Like Hillary with her reckless use of a personal email server, the DCCC is also guilty of failing to secure their website. The password was shared with many people on a spreadsheet and the site itself did not incorporate the use of an encrypted connection. The password itself was “changeme” (without the quotes) which is quite obvious. The website for login was which means the website uses WordPress and the login ID was DCCCPress which is also...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Saturday that she’s been slammed with “obscene and sick calls” after a hacker posted Democratic congressional lawmakers’ personal contact information online. The information was apparently stolen in a hack of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which has personal contact and other information for all of the Democrats in the House, as well as their top aides. “On a personal note, I was in the air flying from Florida to California when the news broke.

    Several weeks before he massacred 49 at an Orlando gay nightclub, Muslim terrorist Omar Seddique Mateen transferred over his interest in his Florida home to his older sister and Afghan brother-in-law, property records show — an indication the family possibly had some knowledge of his martyrdom plans. Authorities say the fatally shot Mateen clearly was prepared to die in a gun battle with police during the June 12 attack, the deadliest act of terrorism on U.S. soil since 9/11. On April 5, Mateen “quit-claimed” the deed on his Port St. Lucie, Fla., house, signing it over to his sister, Sabrina...

Glaser called the DCCC's fundraising "just unforgivable, and it's black and white. There needs to be no hyperbole, there needs to be no stretching. Rush's comments were deliberately taken out of context for apparently political reasons by people who should know better. This was not an irresponsible blogger.

    National Democrats are canceling more than $1 million of planned commercial airtime for Colorado congressional candidate Andrew Romanoff — a sign of waning confidence in his prospects. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee had reserved $1.4 million for TV spending to boost Romanoff in the final two weeks of his race against Republican Rep. Mike Coffman. .. Romanoff, a former state House speaker and unsuccessful 2010 Senate candidate, was once regarded as one of his party’s top 2014 hopefuls. But, with Republicans benefiting from a favorable national environment and Coffman running an energetic reelection campaign, Romanoff has seen his prospects dim....

Last week, Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital revealed in a statement that a procedural flaw in its online health records system led to potentially deadly miscommunication between nurses and doctors. The facility sent Ebola victim Thomas Duncan home despite showing signs of the disease -- only to admit him with worse symptoms three days later. Hospital officials, who came forward "in the interest of transparency," initially cited workflow...

And to prepare, Democrats are going on offense to frame Republican David Jolly as an out-of-touch Washington lobbyist, according to a new memo obtained by The Hill. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s memo outlines the party’s views on where Jolly stands heading into the March general election against Democrat Alex Sink to succeed the late Rep. Bill Young (R-Fla.), hammering him both for his lobbying background and the policies of the GOP. “While Jolly’s career as a Washington insider epitomizes exactly...

The draft language of the Democrats' 2012 platform – set for a final vote next week in Charlotte – argues that current safeguards protecting the public against gun violence are insufficient and urges "an honest and open conversation about firearms." The document also calls for "reasonable regulation" governing guns, including laws banning assault weapons and...

Watch the promotional video, via the Bureau of Muslim Affairs, which is partnering with the DNC for the event. The first two minutes are rather dry, but around 2:04 a muezzin sings the call to prayer with an American flag background, and the video “picks up” considerably:

    For weeks now, Republicans have attacked Democrats for voicing support for the Occupy Wall Street protesters, in particular faulting the DCCC for standing up for them. And the incidents of violence and excess have led some neutral commentators to predict that Dems will pay a political price if they align themselves with the movement. So it’s interesting to see that the DCCC is sticking by Occupy Wall Street. Indeed, the DCCC is now raising money off that recent report of a GOP-connected corporate lobbying firm’s proposed smear campaign against the movement. Nancy Pelosi has authored a DCCC fundraising email that...

Ryan spoke publicly -- albeit without many details -- about his budget proposal which is to be released on Tuesday. Asked about the scale of his budget's spending reductions, Ryan said they would exceed $4 trillion. "We're looking at more than that right now," Ryan said on "Fox News Sunday." "We're fine-tuning our numbers with the Congressional Budget Office literally today, over the weekend. But we're going to be...

    Democrats took aim at U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann just hours before she dips her toe into presidential waters among Republican activists. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee today launched a website targeting the 6th District Congresswoman’s efforts to create jobs under new GOP rule in the U.S. House. Woodbury is in Bachmann’s 6th District. “House Republicans like Rep. Michele Bachmann said their campaign was about creating jobs, but in the first 30 days it’s clear that everything from social issues to special interests has come first,” Jesse Ferguson, of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, said in a news release promoting the...

    The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has taken out a $17 million line of credit for use of the final weeks of the campaign, signaling the party leadership’s commitment to having the money to counter an onslaught of millions of dollars in pro-Republican TV ads. The new line of credit was disclosed in a DCCC report filed Thursday night with the Federal Election Commission.

    Grasping to keep control of Congress, Democratic leaders are turning their backs on some of their staunchest supporters in the House and propping up stronger candidates who have routinely defied them on health care, climate change and other major issues.

    After Representative Steve Driehaus (D-Ohio) voted for the Obama agenda at every turn, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has pulled their resources from the freshman Congressman's campaign saving its cash for the precious few seats it has a chance to hold. So Mr. Dreihaus has put out his own low cost web video claiming he was abandoned by the Democratic Party because he supported the Democratic Party.
  • Rep. Adler, DCCC Must Come Clean on Fake New Jersey Tea Party Candidate

      It is almost beyond belief that Rep. John Adler, a Democrat from southern New Jersey and his allies could successfully plant a fake Tea Party candidate on the ballot in order to draw votes form the Republican candidate Jon Runyon. It is possible that Adler and operatives of the Democratic Congressional Campaign  Committee (DCCC) violated a number of statues and House Rules, but the more pressing priority is for Adler to fully explain his knowledge of these events. Moreover, DCCC Chairman Rep. Chris Van Hollen, at right, must fully explain any role he played, and the role of...

    The Times-Tribune (Scranton PA) ^ | 9/14/2010 | Borys Krawczeniuk
    A national Democratic committee has asked local television stations to stop airing a campaign commercial that attacks U.S. Rep. Paul E. Kanjorski's support of the health care reform law. In a letter dated Friday to the stations, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee lawyers sharply challenge the accuracy of the commercial paid for by the 60 Plus Association, a conservative-leaning group that bought $465,000 in air time on the local stations starting last week. "This advertisement is false, misleading and deceptive," the lawyers wrote. The commercial argues Mr. Kanjorski voted for a $1 trillion health care bill that raises taxes, cuts $500...

    Streisand and Jeffrey Katzenberg were no-shows at a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee fundraiser.....billed as co-hosts w/ Steven Spielberg and J.J. Abrams. Notables included Judd Apatow, Labor Secretary Hilda Solis and Reps. Howard Berman, Brad Sherman, Judy Chu and Laura Richardson. The price to be a co-host was $30,400 per couple, which included a photo with Obama — though POTUS said photo ops weren't the point of the evening. "I hope you understand why we're here tonight,'' said Obama. "It's not to take a picture with the president. We're here to make sure those who took the tough votes are rewarded."

    In another sign that House Dem leaders are eager to silence talk about them losing the House, top Democrats are circulating a memo on Capitol Hill that lays out a detailed case for why Republicans will come up short this fall. The argument in the DCCC memo, which was sent over by a source and opens a window on Dem thinking about the political landscape in a difficult year, is two-fold.The key points: First, Republicans simply can't put enough seats in play to win the House. Second, the Tea Party has become a massive liability nationally in multiple unappreciated ways....
