Rep. Marcia Fudge (OH) is Social Media “All-Star”


There is a certain rock star quality to this story.

Rep. Marcia Fudge (D – OH) finished in the top 5 in a social media contest between Democratic politicians on the Hill. In the House “race” she placed #3 behind Jared Polis (CO) and Puerto Rican delegate Pedro Pierluisi, who came in #1. Of the 280-plus Democrats in the House and Senate, Rep. Fudge came in #4 behind Sen. Nancy Pelosi (CA).

The Democrats’ “Member Online All-Star Competition” began on June 7 and lasted two weeks. The aim of the competition was for members to add as many new Facebook fans, Twitter followers and YouTube subscribers as possible. The competition also came on the heels of Republicans’ competition, where Rep. John Fleming (LA) took first prize (an iPhone).

A recent Mother Jones article says “only 34 percent of Democratic House members were on Facebook and only 20 percent had hit Twitter.”

As of this writing Rep. Fudge (my congresswoman) has 6,173 Facebook fans, 625 followers on Twitter and 40 YouTube subscribers.

  2. It is you who is a disgrace! People like you propagate the race war in America! You do not care to hear the truth. You do not care one red cent about freedom the which my forefathers fought to free even the slaves. The Civil War settled the race war a long time ago, but it seems folks like you are just plain angry and too proud to lift the veil. You disrespect those who work hard to overcome bigotry in every corer of American society by voting color over substance and siding with color over protocol. I find your behavior sickening at the core. Your agenda is obvious!
