Audio: Interview With Congressional Candidate Tony Trupiano


By David Swanson

Here's a 30-minute mp3 file of an interview I recorded earlier today with Tony Trupiano, the former national radio host who is now the Democratic nominee to throw Bush-follower Thaddeus McCotter out of his seat in the U.S. House of Representatives where he fails to represent Michigan's 11th District. While I support Trupiano and encourage others to do so, in this interview I ask him about positions he's taken that I find troubling. In case you don't have time for the whole interview and want to skip ahead, here are some topics discussed, in order:

Tony describes the support he's received from around the country, including over $200,000 with an average contribution of $27.

Tony discusses a recent debate with his opponent and the newspaper coverage found here, and here.

Impeachment.

Immigration.

Jobs.

Health care.

Iraq.

Veterans.

The peace movement.

Iran.

Stolen elections.
