Kos' New Advertiser
Jeff Seeman is running in Ohio's District 16 against Ralph Regula. It seems like quite an uphill battle; in 2002, Regula won handily, getting 69% of the vote. Seeman probably figures he's doomed anyway, but this will buy him a little publicity, perhaps even some contributions from Kos' fans. He has this to say about the controversy:
"Our campaign has decided that because of the recent events we will step in and advertise on www.dailykos.com. We have made this decision for two reasons:
1) We firmly believe in the First Amendment and everyone's right to say whatever he or she chooses on their own website.
2) We refuse to allow our campaign to be bullied by the right wing like they bullied Kos' previous advertisers."
Of course, nobody says Kos did not have the right to say what he chooses on his website; just that there are consequences when one says things that are offensive.
