Charlie Brown (CA-04)
Please Contribute Right Now
Lt. Colonel Charlie Brown is your 2007 DFA Grassroots All-Star!
Now it's up to us to back the endorsement up with real action. Please contribute to his campaign right now:
After Charlie Brown came within 3% of winning the district last November, Karl Rove put eight-term Republican incumbent Rep. John Doolittle on his "Priority Defense" list. You can bet that Rove will pull out all the stops to keep this seat for the Republicans in 2008.
However, not all is going well for Republican Doolittle. Since the last election, the FBI raided his personal residence and has stepped up the investigation into his dealings with convicted GOP lobbyist Jack Abramoff. Within a week of the raid, Doolittle stepped down from his position on the powerful House Appropriations Committee.
Ousting Doolittle from this rural California district will not be easy. Charlie Brown will need everything we've got and then some to beat back the GOP machine. Please contribute right now to jump start the campaign:
Last year after you made Jerry McNerney your DFA Grassroots All-Star, you helped lead him to victory against so-called unbeatable Republican incumbent Richard Pombo. Now, if we work together, we will do it again! Victory in 2008 depends on you.
Thank you for everything you do,
UPDATE: John Doolittle has resigned his position as Ranking Minority member of the uber-powerful House Appropriations Committee. Of course he terms it "temporarily stepping down" to Boehner but figure the odds of him coming back into that powerful position ever again.In the next few days this site will get a bunch of traffic from people Google searching for Congressman John Doolittle so I thought I'd make it easy for any of you that want to know all about him and the American Hero who nearly pulled off the impossible by defeating him in the last election, Charlie Brown. Let me provide you a short tour and introduce you to the criminal you folks Googled to get here. A sort of Virtual Walk of Shame through Congressman John Doolittle's low-lights. Let's start with my favorite (mostly cuz I made it) shall we?
