Hi I'm Steven Leser (imagine that!) from NYC

I am a lifelong Democrat who is passionate about politics and my beliefs (I doubt anyone who has ever discussed politics or history with me comes away thinking otherwise).

I was destined to be a political junkie. I was born on election day, Nov 5, 1968. Yes, it was a Presidential election year, unfortunately, our guy didn't win.

My first political experience was somewhere between the ages of 3-4. My mother went canvassing door to door for the ERA and took me along.

I am the proud parent of an amazing 18 yr old young lady who is about to graduate with a 4.0 GPA and soccer scholarship.

My two darkest political moments were, #1 -At the Pinellas county election night victory party in 2000 at a bar in Clearwater Florida when Florida was pulled back from Gore. #2 - I had been a recount observer in Pinellas County and left a busy supervisor of elections office one day to go to lunch and when I came back it was a ghost town with the Supreme Court's decision nailed to the door.

My brightest political moment was being in Harlem election night in 2008 and celebrating madly with the residents the election of our amazing new President!

3. My mom loves to tell that story.

I knew what feminism was long before I knew what any other political issue was all about.
