Why Doesn’t Steven Choi Tout His Military Experience?

We paid a visit to Choi’s website and did email the Councilman’s fundraiser asking about his service in the South Korean military. There’s no mention of Choi’s military background on his website.

Truman Dinner is a Huge Success

Tonight’s sold out Truman dinner was a huge success and drew a large crowd of Democrats inside and about 100 protesters outside. House speaker Nancy Pelosi was delayed by traffic but her rousing speech, very focused on healthcare reform, more than made up for the tardiness.
