"The Gulf Between Us and Dan Lungren"
HuffPo article by Lungren's Democratic challenger in California's 3rd district, Dr. Ami Bera:

Dan Lungren is out of touch.

That's the only way to explain why Dan stood silent in Congress while his colleague, Texas Rep. Joe Barton, offered an apology to BP and, as the Republican Congressional policy group he's a member of, called the compensation fund for victims of the oil disaster a "shakedown."

Dan had a choice: Stand up for his constituents, American taxpayers and those in the Gulf affected by this disaster, or do nothing. After taking more than $75,000 from the oil and gas industry, and as a leading supporter of off shore oil drilling, Dan's silence speaks volumes about who he's working for.

The sad truth is this: it's big corporations, not us.

2. Good point.
Dolph isn't after our votes, though. :D

You and I can't vote for Ami to help him oust reTHUG Rep. Dan Lungren because we don't live in his district, but we can still donate to Dr. Bera's campaign. He's got an end-of-quarter deadline in just a few hours.
