Dear Russell Brigade Member:
Did you Google "Jack Murtha" this morning? I did. Here are just a few of the headlines that popped up on my screen:
"Earmarks for Campaign Cash?"
"Murtha, Specter shame Pennsylvanians"
"Feds Eye Murtha Links to 'Middleman'"
"Murtha Wove A Web Of Companies And Contracts"
"More Trouble For Congressman Murtha"
Unlike the old days, these headlines aren't only coming from our conservative allies. Nearly every "mainstream" news agency has its eye on the man from PA's 12th Congressional District - and they're not covering ribbon-cuttings at those infamous 'shovel-ready' projects!
Even his liberal allies now view Mr. Murtha as Washington's anti-change agent.
Now to old Murtha friends and allies, that's just 'Jack being Jack' - the price of getting things done for Johnstown. But for those of us who live in the real world, Mr. Murtha's controversy-of-the-hour is a tragic study in corrupt power politics.
This summer is our chance to build the strongest possible victory team for 2010. Will you join me? Here are 3 important ways you can help:
1. Help us network on Facebook - join our group, post articles about the campaign on your page -- start your own RussellBrigade fan site!
2. Organize a Bill Russell Summer Front Porch Rally or backyard cookout at your home.
3. Become a monthly contributor to the campaign -- $10, $15 or even $50 a month will help us maintain and fund our growing grassroots organization.
Thanks for all you're doing for this cause!
With respect and gratitude,
P.S. A few days ago, I was thankful to receive recognition from the Army with a pair of medals - the Meritorious Service Medal and The Legion of Merit Award. Read about it here. RussellBrigade.com. [Email] Paid for by William Russell for Congress

Mark "Snooper" Harvey at The Snooper Report: I had the honor and pleasure to accompany LTC William Russell and a handful of Haditha Marines a while back as we visited Murtha. Murtha would not see us. Later on, Cyber Pastor [Ed Boston], LTC Russell and myself had lunch as we began assaulting the dishonorable halls of CONgress. If I lived in Pennsylvania, I would be voting for LTC William Russell.
