Audio: Congressional Candidate Tony Trupiano

Audio: Interview With Congressional Candidate Tony Trupiano


By David Swanson

Here's a 30-minute mp3 file of an interview I recorded earlier today with Tony Trupiano, the former national radio host who is now the Democratic nominee to throw Bush-follower Thaddeus McCotter out of his seat in the U.S. House of Representatives where he fails to represent Michigan's 11th District.

While I support Trupiano and encourage others to do so, in this interview I ask him about positions he's taken that I find troubling. In case you don't have time for the whole interview and want to skip ahead, here are some topics discussed, in order:

Tony describes the support he's received from around the country, including over $200,000 with an average contribution of $27.

Tony discusses a recent debate with his opponent and the newspaper coverage found here, and here.

Impeachment.

Immigration.

Jobs.

Health care.

Iraq.

Veterans.

The peace movement.

Iran.

Stolen elections.

Dunne Speaks: Words Matter, Prime Minister
Words matter, especially when uttered by politicians. History is littered with examples of careless or injudicious words uttered by politicians coming back to haunt them, often at the most awkward of times. During the 1987 election campaign, when electoral reform was a hot issue, Prime Minister David Lange promised to have a referendum on the electoral system... More>>

Binoy Kampmark: Leaking For Roe V Wade
The US Supreme Court Chief Justice was furious. For the first time in history, the raw judicial process of one of the most powerful, and opaque arms of government, had been exposed via media – at least in preliminary form.

The Conversation: Cheaper food comes with other costs – why cutting GST isn't the answer

As New Zealand considers the removal of the goods and services tax (GST) from food to reduce costs for low income households, advocates need to consider the impact cheap food has on the environment and whether there are better options to help struggling families... More>>
