Meet Marcy Winograd, Candidate for Congress, Wednesday, 7:30pm, Bikerowave

By Alex Thompson

Would you like to meet a congressional candidate and talk bikes?  Come to Bikerowave at 7:30pm on Wednesday and you can meet Marcy Winograd (D), who is challenging incumbent Jane Harman (D) for the opportunity to represent much of West LA in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Winograd for Congress

Winograd, who will be at Bikerowave to talk bikes with Bikeside and Bikerowave volunteers, challenged Harman the last time around in a last minute campaign.  This time Winograd started early and is going after Harman hard.  Harman, an Iraq war supporter, is a member of the Blue Dog Democrats, a group of democrats that are right wing on issues of national security (WAR) and intelligence (WIRE TAPPING).  Winograd, by contrast, is much further left, as founder of the LA chapter of Progressive Democrats of America, and known for connecting the dots between excessive defense spending and lack of funding for other programs.

Swing by, and if you can’t, come by on Thursday between 6:30pm and 10pm for the Bikeside Salon.  On Thursday, I can give you a little sneak preview of what I know about the forthcoming LA Bike Plan.

    Actually, Harman is worse than just that. When a sting revealed that she is taking potentially illegal contributions from pro-Israel lobbyists, she flipped out that the government would dare spy on a Congresswoman. You see, government intrusion is only for us little people, not a big important person like her. She’s not just anti-American with her view of a surveillance state, she’s also a hypocrite about it.
