POLITICIANS LIE...THE PROOF IS IN THE PICTURE

Here I am having the conversation with Sen. Olympia Snowe on July 16 that she claims she never had.....I talked about the Bring Our War $$ Home campaign extensively.....

I just had a call from my sister in Code Pink Pat Taub saying that flying to Chicago today she happened to be on the same plane with Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-ME), and had about 5 min. to "do an intervention" with the senator. Pat said she talked up the Bring Our War $$ Home campaign and Olympia said she had NEVER HEARD OF IT. (Wow, who does our senator think is buying this b.s.?)

Bruce Gagnon just had a convo with her at a parade last month, I delivered letters to her Bangor office twice in the last three weeks, plus numerous visits to her offices by various BOW$H activists over a two year period. Then Pat said we better start funding needs at home before we end up like London.

Of course the senator said, but we need to fight terrorists. And Pat said, we're creating more terrorists every day with our policies.
