About Moi

The Liberal Yell is written by Jenn Budd, a contributor for Crooks & Liars progressive news. 

The Liberal Yell is an outlet for my hatred of injustice and love of politics. I’m proud to be a flaming liberal. If you have a problem with that, get off my fucking blog.


USBP graduation

I was raised in Alabama a political junkie though I defected to San Diego, CA in 1995 after graduating from Auburn University with a B.S. in Law. I’ve been a District Attorney investigator, a federal agent for the U.S. Border Patrol, an Intel agent, a small business owner and now a writer.

I’m a highly skilled designer and custom cabinet maker, a former guitarist, an avid reader and adopter of abused dogs. I love music, chai tea, documentaries, Mexican food and baseball caps. I’m gay, bi-polar II and chubby.

I’ve been published in Crooks & Liars and Liberal Progressive Democrat News.

I believe in a government that is by the people and for the people. That government is meant to serve us and not the other way around. That political service is a duty and not a means to get rich. That government can and must work for us.

I also like to curse.
