The dirty trick campaign to steal the White House is dead. They stared in the face of tens of thousands of activists from around the country and turned and ran… for now.
The dirty tricksters were driven into disarray and defeat by you. They lost their funders. They started in-fighting. People resigned their positions, all because of the pressure you placed on them. The Los Angeles Times just broke the news that they are officially “pulling the plug” on their attempt to steal the presidential election. According to the Times, the dirty tricksters no longer have the capacity to put an initiative on the ballot to take 20 of California’s electoral votes.
Frankly, it is hard to trust that. Knowing the right-wing like we do, it is crucial that we stay tuned and plugged in. This dirty trick could roar back to life, or they could find a new way to steal the White House. There is always a dirty trick up their sleeves.
That said, this is a huge victory that deserves to be celebrated. The grassroots and the netroots came together, in a show of strength and right-wing backed down.
So spend the weekend and do that, because come Monday, it is time to get to work. It’s time to stop playing defense and start playing offense. There is so much that we can accomplish together. I can’t wait to get started.
