Who Does Sean Bielat Work For? Now We Know

The Republican 4th Congressional District Candidate reveals the name of his employer, One Click Politics.

OneClickPolitics.com is a website which promises to "Tell everyone in Washington what you think with one click."

It is also the internet startup Sean Bielat revealed he heads up, WBUR reported last night. Bielat says he wanted to keep the name out of the race, to keep the website non-partisan. 

The website allows users to quickly send messages to members of the House and Senate by picking a topic and headline. Message headlines on the One Click Politics site included issues like "Pass a budget!", "Stand with Israel" and "Pledge to Repeal ObamaCare and Pass Real Health Care Reform." 

The Globe reports that the website will have other left-leaning messages rotate onto the homepage.

This was such a nothing. Can we talk about why we don't want another cookie cutter Kennedy now?

The innovation that Bielat has displayed in trying to connect the people with their representatives, in a non-partisan fashion, offers further proof that he's the most qualified to represent the good people of the 4th district. These are the kind of people we need in DC, not another retread named Kennedy. I support Sean Bielat.

Republicans should run positive campaigns describing what they will do for the district and country, not negative ones criticizing other Republicans for minor issues no one cares about. What's great is that Sean Bielat's business goals are completely in line with his political philosophy of being a citizen legislator and responsive to the people rather than someone who knows better than they do what's good for them. We need congressmen like that.
