Send Vito to Iraq

Maybe Vito Fossella should look for a ski resort in Iraq so that he can get a good assesment of our situation while he is there, just like his Republican collegue Rep. Gutknecht. Gutknecht, an advocate of the war, doesn't hold back with his bleak assesment of what is going on after a recent visit. Via the Free Press;

Congressman Gil Gutknecht found the situation in Iraq more bleak than he anticipated during a weekend visit to the war zone, and said a partial withdrawal of some American troops might be wise.
Gutknecht, a strong supporter of the war since it began in March of 2003, told reporters in a telephone conference call Tuesday that American forces appear to have no operational control of much of Baghdad.
“The condition there is worse than I expected,” he said. “... I have to be perfectly candid: Baghdad is a serious problem.”


“Baghdad is worse today than it was three years ago,” he said.

A friend suggested I contact you. You may want to know about the largest restaurant worker justice project in NY history.

Over 100 of us are working to encourage our former/current employer FIREMAN HOSPITALITY GROUP to stop illegal activity. This includes claims of racial discrimination, sexual harassment, withholding owed overtime pay to immigrant workers and management stealing tips daily.

Two federal lawsuits have been filed. Two law firms are working pro-bono. The NY Times, Village Voice, Fox News 5 and Channel 9 NYC are covering the story.

Anyone can make a difference in one minute by adding their name to “People pledged to stand for justice”. Anyone can be counted. We are collecting 2000. It means a lot to the campaign.
