Say hi to Rep. Blumenauer @ Kennedy School Tuesday

Earl Blumenauer will be grovelling before local teachers in an effort to gain union support for his mayorial run Tuesday,, July 29 at 4:30 at the Kennedy School. While I'll be the first to say that I'd vote for a turd before I'd vote for "Diamond" Jim Francisconi, Earl is a turd I'd have reservations about.
Earl's record doesn't hold up to scrutiny.

He has voted in favor of all but one Free Trade deal:

Voted against pulling out of WTO:

What's your point anon? He's a cyclist too. And he wears a bow tie.

He's an avid free trader and homophobe and his spawn is apparently a white nike labor exploiter.
