1. Dem. Candidate Tim Canova v. Rep. Wasserman-Schultz 'Not Serving FL Residents but Corps & Wall St'

- PROGRESSIVE TIM CANOVA CHALLENGING DWS' Florida Congressional seat, Jan. 15 Interview with Thom Hartmann -



Professor of Law and Public Finance, TIM CANOVA, a Democrat is challenging Rep. Wasserman-Schultz this year for US Congressional Representative from Florida's 23rd District. Canova focuses on Wasserman-Schultz' local record, points out that she is not doing a good job of representing residents in her district in south Florida, that she supports the interests and sides with big corporations and Wall Street, and he says she has many critics in the area.
Canova claims the Congresswoman's support for corporations and voting the interests of Wall Street include: the TPP and fast track, taking money from and supporting privatized prisons, opposing medical marijuana, voting for Wall Street in preventing consumer protections and regulation of pay day loans and racial discrimination in car loans.

As Democratic National Committee Chair on the national level, Wasserman-Schultz is viewed by many as turning the Democratic organization into a glorified arm of the Hillary Clinton campaign and restricting media exposure for Democratic candidates Sanders and O'Malley by having only six Democratic Presidential Debates adversely scheduled on weekends and holidays.
During Wasserman-Schultz' DNC role the Democratic Party also lost a staggering number of seats nationally and on the state and local level esp. election years 2010 and 2014. Will the FL Congresswoman and DNC Chair's unpopularity factor into losing her Florida US Congressional seat? Canova believes the current wave of populism is the future.

->Wasserman- Schultz' recent decision to open up more lobbyist funding to the DNC, against Pres. Obama's ban is yet another example of how she is undermining the people's voice, corrupting the DNC and is unfit for positions as Chair of the DNC and Florida Congress member.
