Rep. Pingree’s Tweet and Mr. Erickson’s Review


At Congress in Your Pocket, we strive to be non-partisan so that you rely on the information without bias. Once in a while, we get some nice evidence that we are living up to that standard. Here is a sampling from both the political Left and the Right.

During the healthcare debate, Rep. Chellie Pingree (D-ME-01) responded to a tweet by Democratic activist and contributing editor to DailyKos, David Waldman (@KagroX). Waldman, who has been very helpful to us in making sure we have the right members on committees (see his congressional blog here), about a member posted about a member and Rep. Pingree responded with this:

Pingree's Tweet

On the other side of the aisle, we got a nice review from Mr. Erick Erickson, who is the Editor-in-Chief of RedState, the nation’s top right-of-center blog.

Here is his full post:

I’m going to do something unusual. I’m going to recommend a product for your iPhone or Blackberry.

I’ve been using Congress In Your Pocket for a few months now. I bought it myself on a whim and it has been indispensable to me ever since.

The app contains every member of Congress, their staff, key phone numbers, committee assignments, etc. It’s great for on the fly contact information for both members and staffers.

I’m happy to plug a program I use everyday. If you have an iPhone or Blackberry, I can’t recommend it enough. And no, dear FTC goons, I have not been paid to plug this app. I just use it.

We’re grateful for support from both sides of the political spectrum and strive to be non-partisan in how we describe and update members of Congress and state legislatures. Thanks to all of our close to 25,000 users around the country and the world. We appreciate all of you!
