Did the Two Million No net neutrality bots Bombard Dem Senators

With “Franken must go!” Messages designed to look like a groundswell of grassroots Democratic woman anger? Did Schumer and all fall for a dirty trick of the type Nixon used?

I say we should take a look at the messages the Dem senators received in the days leading up to their misguided call to demand that Franken resign. And if, as I suspect, there was astroturfing involved, we re-evaluate the formula politicians use to determine how much weight should be given to each email and call.

There is no shame in admitting you fell for a dirty political trick, Democratic senators. Not if you learn from your mistake, make amends (ask Franken to stay) and take measures to make sure it does not happen again. Chances are, Franken is so disenchanted with politics right now that he will want to take some time off. But we need to clean our own house and heal our own wounds before we can get to work taking the House and Senate next year.

1. My name and address was used on that list illegally.

I'm also on there in support of net neutrality, which is what I actually wrote.
