The Widening Credibility Gap of Harris Miller

Harris Miller's critical role in the outsourcing and worker replacement lobby call into question his credentials as an authentic Democrat among many people -- especially the Democratic working people suffering from the policies he has helped "advocate for".

Once these facts become more clear to the citizens of Virginia, Miller's credibility will be destroyed.

I speak with union rank and file rather regularly. I talk to working class people struggling to pay their bills after losing middle class jobs.

Say the word "outsourcing" around them and watch the fireworks.

In light of these facts, I have to ask people if Harris Miller is the sort of candidate that best represents the Democratic Party?

Yes, Harris has "old friends" in the Party. We know that.

We've also seen how people have this habit of endorsing Harris and then launching into attacks on Jim Webb. Very interesting and not a little bit embarassing, even kind of shameful.
After we've all had a chuckle over the humorous "Where's George Allen?" ads, think about the ads that might be made about Harris Miller: "Where did Harris send my job?" or "Where in India is my job, Harris?". You catch the drift, I'm sure.

Harris Miller's activities at the ITAA pro-outsourcing lobby inspires the sort of passionate hatred that cannot be smoothed over. His long record at the ITAA is very, very public. And people are starting to dig. They aren't going to stop.

Don't believe me? Do a google search on Miller's name and "outsourcing" or "H-1b".
Go have a look at http://www.itpaa.org or any number of other sites. Millers actions aren't in any way "secret".

The millions of people who were affected by Miller's actions haven't all just shut up and gone to work at Wal-Mart.
