Let’s heed this urgent call–and also understand that all the money spent by corporations after Citizens United can and will be used not just “to influence the outcome of elections.”

So, while we support this push against Karl Rove et al., we also have to keep on trying to spread the word about the theft of our elections since 2000–including those that took place just this year (in Massachusetts, Delaware and South Carolina)–as well as all the evidence that other thefts are in the works for this Election Day.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
