11. The Kiss
No matter where you live, please take the time to contact ALL your federal representatives and senators to demand that they urge Joe Lieberman to face his loss with integrity and remove himself from the Democratic Party he has renounced while deceptively claiming to run as a Independent Democrat.* For him to do less is an act of treason against the same party he has pretended to be part of since our White House was occupied. CT needs your help. The United States need your help. The entire world needs your help.
He has spit in our faces.
*N.B. Per the Ct. Secretary of State's office, it is not legal to use the name of either party when running as an Independent.
