This just in from friend and Citizen Patriot-Hero Russ Diamond. We urge you all to tune in tonight to find out more about this man and the PACleansweep operation. Russ Diamond made history in Pennsylvania.

Tonight on PCN
Tune in to "PA Books" on the Pennsylvania Cable Network (PCN) Sunday June 15 at 9:00pm as
PACleanSweep's Russ Diamond discusses his book "Tip of the Spear" with host Brian Lockman.

"Tip of the Spear" is a 452-page chronicle of Diamond's experiences and unique perspective as the leader of the group that led the charge against the 2005 legislative pay raise, successfully fought for the first non-retention of a Supreme Court justice in Pennsylvania history and fielded over 110 candidates in the 2006 electoral cycle that saw a massive 24 percent turnover in the General Assembly.

The book provides insight into the beginnings of the explosive movement, commentary on Pennsylvania's political landscape and a behind-the-scenes look at PACleanSweep's tumultuous inner workings.

In response, the people of the Commonwealth awoke from a long slumber and rose up in defiance of the Political Class. They made history - and the reverberations are still being felt. Things may never be the same again in the Keystone State.

In 2005-2006, Pennsylvanians got a taste of what happens when the ivory-towered crowd is running scared. But what we read in the papers and see on television is never the whole story. Follow the journey of one individual who just happened to get caught in the middle of it all and observed it from a unique perspective...
