Longtime activist and rabble-rouser Tim Carpenter, who founded the Progressive Democrats of America and worked with social advocacy movements for peace, nuclear disarmament, single-payer health care, campaign finance reform and other progressive causes, has died of cancer at 55. Often partnering with progressives in Congress, Carpenter was praised by Rep. James McGovern as "a passionate fighter for peace and justice and all causes that are good. He was a remarkable person with a spine of steel and heart of gold.”
