62. This is EXCELLENT!!! From THIS UPDATE at Daily Kos, it went well
and the story is finally starting to spread. Word is, she was contacted by Democratic staff (see the highlighted text in the Kos comments below).

Here's the update at Kos - most of the information is in the replies to the brief post:

Melody Townsel, The Subject of Today's Lead Diary "Horrifying, personal John Bolton story" will be interviewed at 9:45 pm Pacific Daylight Time on Air America's Majority Report.
East Coast Listeners say it's an incredible interview: with further info on Bolton's attacks, and how the Democratic Staff of the Foreign Relations Committee contacted her today - presumably in response to the DKOS Alerts and Diary.


Here are some of the salient replies to this post - I suggest you go to the Kos link and read them all, there are only a couple of dozen:

How did it go?

Distasteful
He went around trying to blacklist her by telling people not to work with her because "she was under investigation" (and she wasn't); he went around making negative comments, to others, about her weight; and then he went around telling people that she was a lesbian (which she is, but which she didn't reveal that to others).

She said that she e-mailed her letter at the beginning of the week to the senate, and today she was contacted by the minority staff.

can't help but thinking that DKos and the other blogs that circulated the letter, played a role in that.

Thanks, Al, but
how did she do? Did she sound credible? Will she make a good witness?

Female Richard Clarke - Straight Talk

I was really impressed with out she just state facts - like Clarke, she gave off a "I have nothing to hide...the truth we set us free" feel.
