I am proud to be organizing online for the Kansas Democratic Party!

Yesterday, Rep. Lynn Jenkins (KS-02) gave voters another reason to question her judgment.

It isn't the first time she's cast the seeds of doubt -- like when Jenkins told a crowd of GOP activists she was a proud member of the "party of no," or when she shocked us by voting against military funding for our brave men and woman in Iraq and Afghanistan. She even abandoned her constituents when she scheduled town hall meetings she never attended.

Now, there is Jenkins' all-too-late realization that government needs to be held accountable. As Media Matters pointed out yesterday, it's not her strong suit...

I'm proud to be organizing online for the Kansas Democratic Party!

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act is starting to take shape right here in Kansas as Democratic Governor Mark Parkinson and Deputy Treasury Secretary Neal Wolin announced the implementation of programs that will provide billions of dollars in recovery funds throughout the country and right here in Kansas. Governor Parkinson discussed the important of these projects and the Recovery Act earlier today...

I'm proud to be organizing online for the Kansas Democratic Party!

Last week, the House Energy and Commerce Committee released district by district reports on the Affordable Health Choices Act being worked on in Congress. The results are incredibly encouraging for health care reform advocates because current legislation is estimated to both reduce costs and increase access to thousands of Kansans.

That's why I wanted to pass along some of the data below the fold...

You know me, I am proud to be organizing online for the Kansas Democratic Party!

In case you haven't seen it by now, I wanted to share with all of you the DNC's ad highlighting what the President calls "the consequences of inaction" if we don't reform our health care system.

I also wanted to pass along the Kansas Democratic Party's petition calling on Congress to enact real health care reform by upholding President Obama's three principles for reform: reducing costs, guaranteeing choice, and ensuring quality care for all.

TiahrtI'm proud to be organizing online for the Kansas Democratic Party!

I'm sure by now you've seen it, but last night Rep. Tiahrt from Kansas took his extremist Republican platform too far. As reported by the Huffington Post, Rep. Todd Tiahrt pondered -- out loud mind you -- whether President Obama's mother would have “taken advantage of [an abortion].”

That's unacceptable. In fact, Congressman Tiahrt was met with "Boos!" from his fellow colleagues.

No matter where you stand on abortion, we can all agree this is a disgusting, divisive comment and deserves to be rebuked. President Obama deserves better, the U.S. House of Representatives deserves betters, and the people of Kansas deserve better. It's time that we demand it!

That's why the KDP has launched Take it back Todd!, an online petition taking on these disgusting comments and demanding Rep. Tiahrt apologize to the President. More below the fold...

I am proud to be organizing online for the Kansas Democratic Party!

These past two weeks, the Kansas Democratic Party has been asking people to share their personal health care stories in the hopes of convincing Congress that now is the time for real reform.

You see, it's easy to forget in the rush of policy discussions and politics decisions that this issue isn't about Washington politicians, special interest groups, or even the insurance companies. It's about you.

And, it's about people like Ann L. from Augusta, KS.

Hope you all have a fun and safe holiday weekend. Again, I'm proud to be organizing online for the Kansas Democratic Party.

I don't need to tell you, but health care reform is serious business. That's why it's so important we see real reform passed in Congress this year. Yet, it's easy to forget in the heat of debate that health care isn't about politicians or lobbyists.

It's about you, and it's time we remind Congress of that.

We're launching a new campaign to send your stories to Washington courtesy of Kansas' U.S. Congressman Dennis Moore.

KDP LogoHi again! As you know, I'm proud to be organizing online for the Kansas Democratic Party!

I've got some good news everyone! Just checked with our Finance Staff and in one week, we've already brought our budget for a new website up to $2,457 -- that's a fifth of our total goal!

But my boss, Kenny Johnston, has better news:

I just got my hands on two tickets to Washington Days 2010 and we're going to give two lucky activists a chance to win them. If you make a donation of $25 or more before Friday, July 3rd at 11:59 PM, you'll automatically be entered into our contest!

Hi folks! I'm the new Online Director for the Kansas Democratic Party. We launched this campaign on Monday, so far we've got our budget up to $2,322! We'd appreciate any support.

Kansas Democrats have always had the advantage in online organizing. Terrific Democrats like former Governor Kathleen Sebelius and current House candidate Sean Tevis have put Kansas politics on the map with their innovative online tactics.

It's been an important advantage over the years.

But now, the Sam Brownback-led Republican Party is getting ready to nominate the most conservative slate of candidates in years and they're starting to gain on us online.
