I know this is last minute but I want to help my friend, Bill Hedrick, who has two son’s who are or have served in Iraq, is running against corrupt Republican congressman Ken Calvert CA-44th.
Warning: If you intend to click on the link to Calvert’s site you might want to start the shower.
Are you afraid? You should be. But brace yourself – Dick Cheney is coming to do a high-dollar fundraiser for Calvert today in San Clemente. There will be a protest but I have no word of a citizen arrest.
Keith Olbermann even had a segment on tonight about the race.
Here are the details on the protest.

There are a lot of reasons why Bill is a great candidate but here’s something that is not obvious. Look at Bill Foster IL-14 who took Denny Hastert’s seat and look at the first few seconds of the video here. You will think they are the same person.
Here’s a little about Bill that will help you see how great a candidate he is. He has what it takes and is a great guy.

And look at this –
Their son Adam, a soldier with the 3rd ID, is currently serving a second Iraqi deployment east of Baghdad. Son Jesse served in Baquba with the 1st ID before suffering a near-fatal “heat event,” while his wife, Evelyn, was an army convoy driver in Baghdad, also serving a second tour.
