Tipper Gore -- Gore-LIEberman 2000 unofficial campaign web site (2806 words)
In 1985, Tipper Gore made a name for herself as a crusader against "porn rock." She was a founding member of the Parents Music Resource Center (PMRC), a group which emerged overnight on the national media scene.
Gore echoed his wife’s feeling that the hearing ‘was not a good idea,’ and attempted to exculpate himself from the proceedings by virtue of the fact that he was ‘a freshman minority member of the committee’ in no position to veto the affair.
Tipper Gore has scaled back her fight against explicit rock music in an attempt to pander to the left wing of the Democrat Party.
