Citadel Senior Cadet Mitch Baroody has helped organize the effort to support Congressman Joe Wilson on the web. Less than 48 hours from when the page was created there were 1,100 members and over 100 wall posts commenting the Congressman’s efforts this past week on facebook. Baroody is being credited with helping to start the “Thank You Joe Wilson Movement” all over the country.

On the facebook page that Baroody has helped create members have been able to voice their opinions and appreciation for a congressman such as Joe Wilson from South Carolina.

“Dear Congressman Wilson: Thank you for expressing what millions of Americans feel about President Obama and his plan to bankrupt this nation by passing his Health Care Reform to socialize medicine. You are a good American and have already apologized to the President and he accepted it. Do not let Speaker Pelosi and her partisan cronies intimidate you into apologizing to the full House of Congress; one apology was enough. God bless you and your family and keep up the good work!!!” These were the words from a member of the group from Florida. There are another 128 comments just like this on the facebook page thanking Wilson for all he has done to fight the Democrats in Congress.

Many members have even made contributions to the Re-elect Wilson to Congress fund, and over 700K has been raised thus far for his campaign (there is no telling how much of that came from this past week)!  Another effort that has been started is the “I’m with Joe Wilson” t-shirts , and all profits raised go towards Joe Wilson’s re-election.

So if you are feeling supportive go join the facebook page, “Thank You Congressman Joe Wilson.”

Audra Shay Not Found on Social Media

While browsing the wires today, we decided we would follow both candidates for chairman to see what was developing via Facebook and Twitter.

Surprisingly, we could no longer find Audra Shay in Twitter or Facebook searches.

Shay, who is the YR Renewal candidate for chairman, has found herself in a media hail storm over the last 2 weeks over several comments that could label her a racist.  We do not know the reason behind the sudden secrecy, but it definitely raises questions as to why she has suddenly become invisible online.

Shay was recently caught in a situation where it appeared that she agreed with a racial comment on her Facebook account, followed by removing the individuals who called her out for her apparent support of the racial comments.  Later in the week, it was discovered that more comments were made concerning President Obama and a noose.

Either way, it appears that there is more to this story if she is not leaving her profile open to the public anymore.

We were able to search and add Rachel Hoff, Next Level candidate for chairman.
