Join our live chat with Rep. Patrick Murphy, the House leader on DADT repeal

The chat with Rep. Patrick Murphy begins at 1:30 PM. The Iraq vet was the House sponsor of the DADT repeal bill — and has been a tireless advocate. Now, he needs our help. The chat is co-hosted by Open Left, Good As You, Pam’s House Blend, Bilerico and AMERICAblog.

For this one, we’ve got an ActBlue page set up. On Murphy’s ActBlue page, the top fundraiser so far is by Stonewall Democrats with 99 contributors. I bet our combined blogs can top that this afternoon. We want 100. Help Patrick Murphy today.


On October 27, 2010, Joe was one of five bloggers who interviewed President Obama. Joe is a DC-based political consultant with over twenty-five years of experience at both the state and federal level. Joe has managed political operations and legislative efforts for both candidates and issues-based organizations. For seven years, he was the Director of State Legislation at Handgun Control, Inc. He served as that organization's first Political Director during the 2000 cycle. Joe is a graduate of the University of Maine School of Law. In addition, he has a Masters in Public Administration from Lehigh University and received his B.A. from the University of New Hampshire. Joe also has a fun dog, Petey, a worthy successor to Boomer, who got Joe through eight years of Bush and Cheney. Joe likes to think he is a world class athlete having finished the 2005 Chicago Marathon in the time of 4:10. He has completed six other marathons as well -- and is still determined to break the four hour mark.
