Replace Congressman Paul Cook with Sex Pistols Drummer Paul Cook

"If we can’t have a better congressman, perhaps we can have a better Paul Cook."

California's 8th district congressman, Republican Paul Cook, has voted in lock step with Donald Trump’s right wing agenda to strip away healthcare, allow coal companies to dump toxic waste into streams, allow the mentally ill to purchase guns and more. He even voted for a bill that allows hunters to shoot hibernating bears in the face!

Congressman Cook ignores his constituents’ requests for a town hall meeting, and he can’t seem to be located, so some constituents launched a ‘Missing Congressman' campaign. Rachel Maddow, CNN, the BBC and other outlets reported that Mr. Cook’s photo was affixed to milk bottles in hopes of finding him.

Recently, Congressman Cook’s spokesman said those who oppose him "espouse an extreme political agenda" and referred to them as "fringe group agitators," a designation they've embraced. Relegation to the fringe by the likes of U.S. Congressman Paul Cook is an affirmation of decency.

We 8th district voters hope to replace Congressman Cook, but in the meantime, if we can’t have a better congressman, perhaps we can have a better Paul Cook. As a punk rock pioneer, Sex Pistols drummer Paul Cook is surely familiar with life on the fringe. So we, the good and decent agitators of California’s 8th district, have invited drummer Paul Cook to be our Honorary Fringe Representative. He would be warmly welcomed if he ever visited his honorary constituents. District 8 boasts some legendary music venues where drummer Paul Cook would be greeted with a tidal wave of fanfare should he—and his amazing daughter Hollie and his friend Steve Jones--decide to show up and play. We could call it our our Fringe Town Hall.

Please sign to support replacing U.S. Congressman Paul Cook with former Sex Pistols drummer Paul Cook.
