CSGOPOTD stands for Crazy Stupid Republican of the Day, posting regularly over at DailyKos. Today’s update resonates with me, since it covers my state senator, Ryan Fattman:
Meanwhile, outside the state legislature, Fattman has been at anti-immigration rallies and palling around with Jessica Vaughn, whose Center for Immigration Studies just so happens to be classified as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Fattman has downplayed his alliance with a hate group by trying to discredit the SPLC’s classification of them, rather than do the honorable thing and cut ties with the organization. At this point, it seems pretty clear that he has no intention of stopping his descent down a path of open bigotry, and would rather normalize his rhetoric and intolerant allies.
I do have a dog in this hunt – my candidate is Tom Merolli, assistant treasurer in Mendon, MA and a dedicated activist in the area. You can learn more about Tom and help us out with a donation at his web site, Tom4MA.com
Tom doesn’t have a primary opponent, so we’re in general election mode, canvassing all the time and phone banking. Please volunteer if you’re in the area!
