Former U.S. Senator Russ Feingold, radical Leftist fired decisively by Wisconsin voters in November 2010, has formed a new political action committee - P.U. or Progressives United.
From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
Russ Feingold, who lost his U.S. Senate seat to U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) in a bitterly fought contest last fall, has formed a new political action group.
In an e-mail to supporters, Feingold is calling the group Progressives United.
"Together we will empower Americans to fight back against corporate influence and corruption in Washington, D.C., and demand democratic reforms to our election system. We will support candidates who will work for the people, not the corporations. We will call out the media when they hide from the real story," Feingold writes.
Poor Russ. I don't think he's come to terms with being defeated by conservative Ron Johnson and booted out of office.
Beware Democrats. This "movement" has third party written all over it.
Feingold may be positioning himself as the next Ralph Nader.
