Apparently people have not only been reading my blog, but have been taking some of the info to heart and acting on it. Here is an article on Politico about my little blog.

Spam tsunami hits Dem chiefs of staff
An anti-health care reform Web site has published the names of moderate Democratic chiefs of staff in the House -- spawning a Spam tsunami inundating inboxes with more than 500 emails since Wednesday, according to aides.
Energized by Nancy Pelosi's claim she had the votes to pass health care reform,blogger "just a conservative girl" penned a "Dear Fellow Patriot" letter to readers asking them if they could "please [be] joining us in emailing the Chiefs of Staff of the following moderate to conservative Democrats?"
She then published the names and emails of 55.
"I've been dealing with these since yesterday... it's clogging my inbox," said one chief of staff, less peeved than amused.
The emails range from ALLCAPS:
PLEASE DO NOT VOTE FOR THIS DISASTROUS "HEALTHCARE REFORM" BILL. PLEASE DO NOT DESTROY THE VERY FABRIC OF THIS COUNTRY.PLEASE DO NOT BE MANIPULATED INTO SELLING ITS CITIZENS OUT FOR A SOCIALIST AGENDA.PLEASE DO NOT FORCE AMERICANS TO BECOME ENSLAVED AND IMPOVERISHEDPLEASE- PLEASE PLEASELISTEN TO THE CITIZENS WHO WORK TO PAY YOUR SALARY. NOT THE ONES WHO REFUSE TO WORK.
To the partisan:
PS - Ask your congressperson to remind the President that the financial problems we have are not just those of the former President. I seem to recall that for the 2 years prior to the current President, we had a democratic majority in both house of congress.
To the politely persistent:
Being the Chief of Staff for a Congressional Representative is a thankless job. In this position, you clearly have the ability to lean on your Representative to vote in-line with what the American people need and want.
