John Deeth Blog: Loebsack vs. Peace Left: Reports Exaggerated?
Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog
Buzz on the Eastern Iowa peace left that Dave Loebsack is miffed with
them is getting a firm dismissal from the congressman's office, and
from some peace activists. "The Congressman is not in any way upset
with people opposed to the war," Loebsack spokeswoman Gabby Adler told
Iowa Independent Tuesday night. "He's repeatedly encouraged
constituents to stand strong in their efforts to hold the Bush
Administration's feet to the fire." The dustup that's been circulating
on email lists since the weekend came as Loebsack joined 78 other
House members in signing the House Progressive Caucus pledge not to
support any more Iraq War funding except for troop withdrawal. The
effort started in mid-July with three California Democrats - Lynn
Woolsey, Barbara Lee and Maxine Waters. "Just this week eight more
signed on," said Adler.
