Cindy Sheehan Submits Nominating Papers for Congress
If you can't beat 'em join them -- and today, July 29th, 2008, Cindy Sheehan did exactly that: she has submitted her nominating papers and is one step away from being on the ballot to beat Nancy "Plastic" Pelosi -- the supreme conservative "democrat" who does all she can to act like she's criticizing George Bushler without actually making him pay for his crimes.
Sheehan is that amazing woman and mother who became internationally known in 2005 for camping outside George Bushler's Texas ranch to protest his illegal war on Iraq after she lost her soldier son in the Iraq War.
Today, Sheehan submitted more than her required number of signatures to attain ballot status in California's 8th Congressional District -- the exact district Nancy Pelosi "represents." Remember, Cindy Sheehan is not from that district in California so in order to put herself on the California ballot she needed 10,198 signatures.
Sheehan is running as an Indepedent. It didn't take long for her to become disillusioned with the "democratic" party of which she used to be a member and in May 2007 she officially left the party when the "Democratic" controlled Congress -- in spite of everything -- voted to continue funding the Iraq War.
She started her independent campaign for Congress in July 2007 as a response to George Bushler's commutation of Scooter "Leaker" Libby's sentence for his involvement in the Valerie Plame scandal.
This woman is one of a kind and an example of how much is possible in America if people are informed enough and concerned enough to take action.
For any of you out there who live in San Francisco and want to elect a human and not a fraud to office, vote Cindy Sheehan on November 4th.
