Sean Duffy’s telling a lot of tall tales about the Keystone XL pipeline

This week the House will vote on the Senate’s version of a bill to (yet again) approve the Keystone XL pipeline. The President has promised to veto […]

Sean Duffy’s Covert Ops Guy

This story is just too good to not post here. Sean Duffy’s campaign field director, Jake Thomforhda, has been put on leave after it was discovered that he misrepresented himself to the press.

I’m guessing Sean read too much “ Spy vs Spy ” when he was a kid?

Congress Passes ISIS Bill and Evacuates Washington!

In probably one of the worst decisions to come out of Washington since the decision to invade Iraq under President George W Bush, the Senate piled on and passed the bill to ‘train moderate Syrian rebels to fight ISIS’ that easily passed the House yesterday.

What an incredible waste of American resources…and many of […]

Sean Duffy prosecutes Bowe Bergdahl without benefit of an investigation

Watch as heroic former prosecutor and fake lumberjack Sean Duffy claims that he supports due process, and then basically calls Bowe Bergdahl a deserter before the military has even had a chance to finish their investigation into the matter. It’s worth noting that it was this kind of rush to judgment that fueled the death […]

Guess who raised campaign funds during government shutdown? Sean Duffy!

In Ken Vogel’s new book “Big Money: 2.5 Billion Dollars, One Suspicious Vehicle, and a Pimp – on the Trail of the Ultra-Rich Hijacking American Politics“ about money in American politics, there’s an interesting report that Congressman Sean Duffy attended a Washington confab sponsored by Karl Rove’s American Crossroads group during last year’s government shutdown […]

Sean Duffy voted to cut heating assistance for low income Americans

Hey all you folks shivering up in the 7th congressional district and beyond, when you’re turning your thermostat down to 50 degrees Fahrenheit today and trying desperately to figure out how in the hell you’re going to pay $5.00 a gallon for propane, if you can find it at all, remember that Congressman Sean Duffy […]

Ahead of President Obama’s State of the Union address tonight, Democratic House candidate Kelly Westlund held a media conference call today with minimum-wage workers from Wisconsin’s 7th Congressional District. On the call, Westlund and the minimum-wage workers urged Westlund’s opponent, incumbent Republican Rep. Sean Duffy to support raising the minimum wage.

Kelly Westlund’s first month on the campaign trail

From my email inbox comes news of Democratic Congressional candidate Kelly Westlund’s first month on the campaign trail. In the first month of Kelly Westlund’s grassroots congressional campaign, she has traveled to 16 of the 26 counties in Wisconsin’s Seventh District. In contrast to  Republican incumbent Sean Duffy who is criticized for not being available to his […]

“Struggling” Sean Duffy? More like “Do-Nothing” Sean Duffy

I’ve long believed Republican Rep. “Struggling” Sean Duffy isn’t fit for the office he holds, and thanks to the govtrack.us website, I now have proof.

According to Rep. Duffy’s report card on govtrack.us, Rep. Duffy introduced ZERO bills that became law in 2013. Now I understand it’s no easy task to write legislation and then […]
