According to Abercrombie’s Website, “The latest wave of rumors and attacks are lame attempts to link Neil Abercrombie to a socialist group.”

This report on Abercrombie from KeyWiki, shows that “attempt” to be fairly convincing:

DSA member?

In 1990 the Democratic Socialists of America Political Action Committee endorsed two Congressional candidates, “DSAer Democrat” Neil Abercrombie seeking to regain the House seat representing Honolulu and Vermont independent candidate Bernie Sanders.[9]

DSA wife?

In 1985, Neil Abercrombie’s wife dr. Nancie Caraway of Hawaii was listed as a member of the Feminist Commission of the Democratic Socialists of America.[10]

DSA event?

In 2006 Neil Abercrombie and Dennis Kucinich spoke at a Democratic Socialists of America Political Action Committee event in Washington DC at the home of Stewart Mott, for Bernie Sanders[11].  Christine Riddiough, former DSA National Director, served as host/ moderator

DSA aide?

George Roberts, a Democratic Socialists of America member, was at one time an aide to Neil Abercrombie.[12]

This additional random sampling from around the Web seems to contradict Abercrombie’s vigorous denial of any Marxist leanings:
