From David Donnelly:
Tom DeLay’s state political action committee was just found guilty of violating Texas campaign finance law.
A Texas judge found, in a civil trial, against DeLay’s Texans for a Republican Majority PAC, holding that the committee failed to report $600,000 in corporate contributions, in direct violation of Texas law.
This is the first time ever in a court of law Tom DeLay’s fundraising empire has been held to account. There are two things you can do to make this news reverberate around the nation.
First, help us expand our campaign today with a donation to our campaign to force DeLay to step down. We are busy building pressure on members of Congress to force DeLay’s resignation, educate the public about the gross violations of standards of conduct, and working with others to spread this message.
Go to https://secure.ga3.org/03/without_delay to make a secure donation on-line.
Second, with this news, we issued a statement and are busy getting the word out to reporters and columnists. Help us spread the word by writing a letter to the editor of your local newspaper. Use the statement as a loose set of talking points to draft your own letter. Let’s keep the story in front of the public.
Read our statement at http://dailydelay.blogspot.com/2005/05/public-campaign-action-fund-statement.html. Share what you want about this news by posting comments at the blog.
We know that DeLay and his allies will push back hard, so we need to frame this debate today.
So please take these two actions today, and, importantly, forward this breaking news on to your friends.
