We all know President Barack Obama is a hardcore left-wing socialist, but what about our representatives in Congress? The website WorldNetDaily, which is one of your Tea-Partying Uncle Bob’s regular morning reads, claims that the Democratic Socialists of America organization has at least 70 dues-paying members sitting in the chambers at this very moment. And its own investigations suggest “the number of actual avowed or semi-secret socialists in the House and Senate is considerably higher—at least 82.”

WND points to this October 2009 “Democratic Socialists of America newsletter”, which llists six Illinois reps—Danny Davis, Luis Gutierrez, Phil Hare, Jesse Jackson Jr., Bobby Rush, and Jan Schakowsky—as ‘THE SOCIALIST IN ELECTED OFFICE TODAY.” There’s just one small problem: the newsletter is a fake.
