Liberal Activist: Tulsa's Ed Kimmel Makes News at Washington Protest

Whatever its merits as a political town, almost no one sees Tulsa as a hot bed of progressive politics. Yet even Tulsa produces some powerful liberal voices, people like former Tulsan and Central High School graduate Ed Kimmel.

Kimmel, now a lawyer, is a progressive activist who doesn't shy away from a good argument. In fact, he made a splash the other day at the 9/12 rally in Washington, a gathering of anti-Obama and other conservatives.

Kimmel's liberal activism and support for a public option in health care got him some interesting press coverage, as well as a YouTube video posting. Check out the full story here.
