As a Californian I am never not ashamed to have Senator Feinstein representing me. Is there a "tech lobby"? If there is, why is its number one priority not fielding a decent primary challenger to oust this authoritarian disgrace to our state?

She has seniority in the Senate and it's a "devil you know" situation. Mostly we don't want to Tea Party ourselves by trying to purify our ranks.

That is the kind of cowardice that gets you people like Feinstein. Grow a pair and stop voting for her until she gets her act together.

Perhaps, but Tea Partying one's primaries gets you people like Akin.

That's why I've always voted against her.

Isn't she retiring after this term?

That was the rumor before her current term.

ok, yes, we need to start working on this then
