Tuesday, September 8th: candidate Peter Thottam to discuss Van Jones, truth in politics on Fair and Balanced

Tuesday 9/8/2009 on Fair and Balanced, 9 – 10 a.m. Pacific (noon-1 pm Eastern) I will be discussing the Van Jones lynching and “truth in politics” with Peter Thottam. Live broadcast: Archived for on-demand listening at

Peter Thottam is a candidate for California State Assembly. The founder and Executive Director of the Los Angeles National Impeachment Center, Peter has been a long-time activist in a number of progressive causes including the antiwar movement and the 9/11 truth movement. He earned an undergraduate degree from Yale and a law degree from the University of California-Berkeley, and an MBA from UCLA.

One of his most colorful moments came when Peter and several other activists truth-squadded Bil Maher on live television.

Peter Thottam challenged Maher once again about Building 7 “Tell us what happened to Building 7, Bill!”
As Peter was grabbed and dragged out of the audience, Maher replied, “You are a nut case… Building 7.”

Peter also spent the night in jail for shouting down Nancy Pelosi for taking Impeachment off the table, worked previously at Goldman Sachs and has been a major critic of the firm since the mid-1990s.
