"…back home in her Southern California-based district, liberal activists who have never truly embraced Harman are just getting started. Several of them, most notably Marcy Winograd, who heads up Progressive Democrats of Los Angeles, and John Amato, who writes for the popular Crooks and Liars blog, are now making moves to challenge Harman in the Democratic primary, and the recent controversy will be at the heart of their message.
The wiretapping story “has been very, very damaging to her because it highlights what people most distrust about politicians in general: personal gain taking precedence over the voters they are supposed to be representing,” Amato told POLITICO in an e-mail.
Winograd, who ran an unsuccessful primary campaign against Harman in 2006, argued that Harman’s moderate voting record had alienated voters, especially in the district’s more liberal reaches.
“I think what’s important is that Jane Harman’s charade of being a protector of the Constitution should be challenged and exposed,” said Winograd, who received 38 percent of the vote to Harman’s 62 percent in 2006." Poliico
Jane Harman had a talk with the Justice Department last week. It began with a rant on her part as to the impudence of the prosecutors in questioning her petriotism and ended on a much humb;er nore after they explained to her that her reported belief that Israel's interests are the US's interests is not a shield from prosecution.
I can only wonder of she thinks that it is "all right" to give American classified documents to Canada without permission, or perhaps Britain, or Turkey (a NATO member), or, heaven forbid, France!
She is going to be challenged in her district. I wish I lived there. pl
