JEROME ARMSTRONG

Jerome Armstrong is the co-author (with Markos Moulitsas Zuniga of Daily Kos) of the book Crashing the Gate: Netroots, Grassroots, and the Rise of People-Powered Politics. He is also the founder of the Democratic activist website MyDD.com (My Due Diligence).

On August 8, 2008, Armstrong agreed to pay nearly $30,000 in fines in a settlement with the Securities and Exchange Commission over allegations that in 2000 he had touted the stock of a software company (an Internet bulletin board called Raging Bull) without disclosing that he was being paid to do so. Under the agreement, Armstrong neither denied nor admitted to the charges against him.
