Several members of the approximately eighty strong, far left Congressional Progressive Caucus have documentable ties to the Communist Party USA, or its front organizations.
These include, but are certainly not limited to, Caucus vice chair Dennis Kucinich, Caucus founder and Senate member Bernie Sanders and house members Corrine Brown, John Conyers, Danny Davis, Rosa DeLauro, Barney Frank, Jesse Jackson, Jr. Barbara Lee, Charles Rangel, Bobby Rush and Maxine Waters
Here’s another for the list – none other than Progressive Caucus co-chair and California 6th district Rep. Lynn Woolsey.
Below is a scan from the Communist Party’s newspaper People’s Weekly World from September 11 1999, advertising a People’s Weekly World Gala Banquet. Woolsey is listed as a co-sponsor of the event:
Of those listed above Woolsey, identified Communist Party members or supporters include Cassandra Lopez, Juan Lopez, (identified on the advertisement as “chair, N. Calif. District CPUSA” Bob Martin, Coleman D. Persily, Michael Parenti , Avelino Ramos,
Nell Ranta, Gail Ryall, Anthony Toney and Doris Brin Walker.
Also listed on the left portion of the advertisement were long time communist front supporter Rep. Barbara Lee and more well known communists, including Arnold Becchetti, Marilyn Bechtel, Delmer Berg , Libero Della Piana and Herb Kaye (aka) Herb Kransdorf.
Lynn Woolsey is an influential Democrat. She serves on several Congressional Committees, including;
- Committee on Education and Labor
- Subcommittee on Early Childhood, Elementary and Secondary Education
- Subcommittee on Workforce Protections (Chairwoman)
- Committee on Foreign Affairs
- Subcommittee on Africa and Global Health
- Committee on Science and Technology
- Subcommittee on Energy and Environment
Once Lynn Woolsey would have immediately be flagged as a security risk, for openly supporting a Communist Party fund raiser.
Today, the Communist Party supports Cuba and China and strongly opposes the U.S. war efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Why then, would a loyal U.S. congresswoman be prepared to co-sponsor a Communist Party event?

The best to be said about Barbara Lee is that no piece of legislation she's authored has ever passed. She's a useless disgrace. It makes me sick that I was gerrymandered into her district. Barbara Lee does not speak for me.

Communism's alot like cancer,sometimes you can have it for a long time before it's presence is known and in alot of cases it's just too late when you find out.I THINK we found out in time now we need a chemotherapy equivalent for it.
To say that Lynn Woolsey is influential is more than a little bit scary!
If you've ever heard her speak, her logic and rhetoric is vacuous and without any reasonableness. She embodies the term "useful idiot". Yet, Nor Cal voters keeping voting her in!
I saw her at the local (Petaluma) lefty bakery last Monday and she looked like a deer in headlights. Servers were scurrying about trying to seat "Lynn" (whispered breathlessly) at the best table. As I went up to pay the cashier, I heard one say to the other, "She's a very important person!". I wanted to gag.
