$42,000? Let’s Get This Party Started!

What can I say. In a little over 24 hours, much to our surprise, we raised almost $42,000 to go after Bush Dog Democrats who are joining with the Republicans to try and pass retroactive telecom immunity.


So the question is still — who do we go after? You can still vote. Will it be:

Leonard Boswell, facing a primary against progressive Democrat Ed Fallon

Chris Carney, who has a bit of a history at the Lake

John Barrow, who says we can’t "cut and run" on Iraq

Zach Space, one of "Rahm Emanuel’s little kennel of Bush Dogs"

Brad Ellsworth, who recently voted to sabotage the Paul Wellstone Mental Health and Addiction Equity Act,

Heath Shuler, well…what can you say.

As Glenzilla says, "The goal is to raise as much money as possible to run local ads against one or two of them, alerting as many possible voters in their districts of their endless complicity with the most radical, corrupt aspects of the Bush administration’s chronic lawbreaking and illegal domestic spying."

Thanks to you, we have a lot of options. Let us know who you think deserves to be the target of our efforts for joining with the Republicans to try and pass retroactive immunity for Dick Cheney and the telecom criminals.

Cast your vote here.
