No revolt there, just do your job and represent the people that elected you, if you do get there, sir. Not the corporations.

2. Bob kerry has a history problem that victims in NE are just waiting to bring up. Not pretty

 

If Bob Kerrey runs for Nebraska Senate, he needs to realize that his past in being heavily involved in the Franklin Credit Scandal. I learned all about that here at DU. So Im really surprised to see all has been forgotten? The victims have not forgotten.
