I hope everyone who can, across the US, does everything they can to signal boost and protect @AOC. The CongressWoman is breaking norms and is therefore an existential threat to unchecked power.

Remember when the 'real ones' would call out injustice - until they got elected?
@RepJimmyPanetta my local congressperson is all about dialogue while refusing to be bold. I remember having a conversation about it with a friend, grousing about 'Jimmy', the friend said Panetta can't do anything because he doesn't have any power - yet.

His dad was #CIA,
Chief of Staff, SecDef, and a beloved congressperson from MoCo.

His mom and dad are multimillionaires who have the Panetta Institute where THE most powerful come and normalize power (I enjoy the lectures though, guilty pleasure)

Their homebase is #Carmel, where absent AG titans
, it is the wealthiest segment in #Monterey County.

'Jimmy' is a multimillionaire (with $50,000 in #studentloans just to keep it real) who also calls the Carmel area home. His wife is a judge. She was a judge in #SantaClara County. Her first appointment. She got a second
appointment as a Monterey County Judge by Gov. Brown who acknowledge the second appointment was unusual. Ms Panetta, formerly Judge McIntyre of Santa Clara County - appointed by @Schwarzenegger - who was famous for appointing 'good old boys'

'Jimmy' takes an unbelievable amount
of political donations from the politically connected and wanna-be's.

His close #campaign consultant, Plasha Fielding-Will is a lifelong #democrat who takes money from local lobbyist Don Chapin via his Salinas Valley Leadership Group.

'Jimmy' took money from MoCo MaryJane
operator Mike Bitar of Mike's Auto Sales but more importantly exec with East of Eden #Cannabis Co.

Plasha Fielding-Will is getting paid by Bitar's #EastofEden.

She has never experienced housing insecurity because Plasha Will was a tenant of #MontereyBayAquarium billionaire
Julie Packard, who rented her Carmel mansion to Plasha Will.

Plasha runs a campaign consulting firm Political Frame Works @pfwconsulting and her partner and co-tenant of her #Monterey office is Dave Fucking Potter, I shit you not. Dave became a politcal consultant to the 420 biz
'Jimmy's' long time family friends of his dad, Leon (who I loved as a Congressperson way way back), are the Sardine Factory 👑 Boys Burt Cutino and Ted Balestreri. Everyone who knows, knows these guys are teasingly referred to as connected guys by the MoCo political elite.
'Jimmy's' dad was CIA Director when #OsamaBinLanden was popped and it turns out he and Sylvia were in the #SardineFactory basement making jokes over a 'priceless' bottle of 🍷 about whether or not UBL terrorist organization (and the reason Dick Cheney made even more money)
#AQE would be getting a dead fish delivered to their new #CEO, wrapped in #newspaper - because lighthearted jokey jokes by the political class, post- 9/11 , is hilarious and worthy of back slapping, oh Leon you joker!

'Jimmy' won his seat in Congress easily with little opo
after working briefly for Dean Flippo the 🤡, whose office regularly looked the other way on public #corruption, unless you were Lance McClair.

So yeah, 'Jimmy' the powerless goes to Congress and pumps out what?

But lets not get too critical of the poor, powerless #Panetta
@AOC is doing America a tremendous service. #Silicon Valley should love her as a true #disruptor speaking Truth to Power.

But yes, lets rally behind our own #swamp people because they are the ones doing the heavy lifting in the age of #Trump

#Hypocrites @CNN #ProtectAOC
"best local politician"
