Credit where credit is due...

DCCC - The DCCC has added Jerry McNerney and Steve Thomas to their website, in the fairly new and updated 2006 Candidates section. This came after the outcry from the grassroots when the DCCC initially embraced Steve Filson as the establishment's man to take on Richard Pombo. While this is not necessarily breaking news, it's been like this for a month or two at least, I just wanted to put it on the record since many folks asked the DCCC to be fair and to respect the grassroots, the primary system, and the democratic process. Thank You DCCC! Now just add Steve Thomas's website to his DCCC candidate page.

Filson - Steve Filson is reaching out (sort of) to the netroots. Say No To Pombo has a very interesting entry about a blog that Filson posted at DailyKos. On a much more positive note for Filson, he's now listed on the Band of Brothers website as a candidate for 2006.

Pombo - Say No To Pombo blogged that "Pombo (was) Deemed "Most Anti-Conservation" Member of Congress" by BushGreenwatch (with support by MoveOn.org) Congrats?

Regarding Pombo's corrupt lobbyist ally Jack Abramoff, Houston Chronicle is reporting that "Abramoff plea bargain to bring corruption probe to Congress". CNN/AP reports that "Abramoff's cooperation would be a boon to an ongoing Justice Department investigation of congressional corruption, possibly helping prosecutors build criminal cases against up to 20 lawmakers"

Don't get out the champagne yet with regard to the DCCC. I have heard that the DCCC has refused to put up Jerry McNerney's bio and picture on their site like they have done for Steve Filson. Sure they list Jerry McNerney and Steve Thomas. But without a pic and a bio, and with Steve Filson listed first, they have virtually ensured that most casual browsers will go to Filson's site. This is such a petty thing, it really irritates the hell out of me. I expect more from the DCCC.
