Have you ever been offended by an ethnic "joke?" When U.S. Senate incumbent Arlen Specter told Polish "jokes," he not only insulted Polish-Americans across the nation, including over 820,000 of his own constituents, but also Polish people all over the world. Specter has been a U.S. Senator representing Pennsylvania for 30 years now and knows better! (Read about it here). Specter later switched parties and became a Democrat, purely for his own political survival, after 44 years as an elected Republican official.
Congressman Joe Sestak is an excellent candidate who will bring a wealth of experience and much needed and welcome change if he is chosen to represent Pennsylvania in the U.S. Senate. Now in his second term representing PA's 7th District, Sestak is committed to many matters that are important to us all today, such as: making higher education affordable in this severe recession, national security and defense, health care reform, veterans, labor, and insuring that the American Dream is attainable for all.
Joe is a first generation Slovak-American who followed in his father's footsteps to graduate from Annapolis, the US Naval Academy, and served in the Navy for 31 years where he attained the rank of three-star Admiral. Sestak received a Ph.D. in Political Economy and Government from Harvard and served in the National Security Council under President Clinton, where he was the Director of Defense Policy.
Please join us in supporting Joe Sestak, a true representative and advocate of America's vast ethnic diversity.
