Michael Swartz Bio

Michael Swartz is a recovering politician turned writer. What began way back in 2003 with occasional features for The Patriot Post has blossomed into a weekly column. That love for the written word also led Michael to author a book with his own policy prescriptions and embark upon writing a history of the Tea Party for release later this year.
