Kevin Zeese: Inquiry Sent 8/27/2006 - Response Aug 29, 2006. Maryland-
I'm opposed to the Iraq War and favor an immediate end to its' occupation and a dual withdrawal of U.S. troops and corporate interests. I also oppose threats of military action against Iran as this would be a counterproductive step that will create a regional war, potentially a World War. Finally, I am critical of Israel's bombing of Lebanon with U.S. support. I've been making an issue out of U.S. policy toward Israel in a series of letters to my Democratic Party opponent, Ben Cardin. See: http://kevinzeese.com/content/blogcategory/13/34/
. I'm director of the national anti-war group, DemocracyRising.US (where I have a complete exit plan) and a co-founder of VotersForPeace.org and was one of the first people to sign their Voters Pledge: "I will not vote for or support any candidate for Congress or President who does not make a speedy end to the war in Iraq, and preventing any future war of aggression, a public position in his or her campaign." I urge all who read this to sign the pledge.
I am a candidate for the U.S. Senate in Maryland and have been nominated by the Green, Libertarian and Populist Parties of Maryland. This is the first time these parties, or any two of them, have nominated the same candidate for office. This is an open seat to replace retiring Senator Paul Sarbanes.

Michael Badnarick (Libertarian): Inquiry Sent 8/27/2006 - Responded 8/28/2006
Serious candidates don't often respond to anonymous and-or coercive inquiries.
You'll need to be as forthcoming as you'd like us to be.
And, you will be well advised to do research on well-known candidates who do not respond, because they may already be on record at various places on the net, including their own websites, and if you mis-classify anyone, you will completely undermine your credibility.
Which means that your threat to classify any non-respondent a yellow duck is not just a cheap form of blackmail, it could lead to a great deal of embarrassment for you.

Russ Feingold: inquiry sent 8/28/2006 - No reponse yet - Wisconsin
So many haven't responded- but notice not many Repukes are responding. It is important to send e-mails to get your friends in other states to get after their candidates and make them answer. Then put it here for the record. Proof is required to keep these liars honest.
