Dear MoveOn member,
Corporate interests are trying to buy our elections and our current election laws are making it possible. In fact, they've promised to spend $400 million to do so and that's exactly why our campaign to change those laws is so important.
The Fight Washington Corruption pledge, our three-part plan to overturn Citizens United, take big money out of elections, and end the overwhelming influence of lobbyists, has been endorsed by over 500,000 individuals. Now 168 candidates and members of Congress have signed on to support the pledge as well.
But your representative, Carolyn McCarthy, has not signed the pledge, so we want to make sure she hears directly from the people who should really determine elections in her district— her constituents.
It's particularly important that Rep. McCarthy hear from people who have been involved in her campaigns. Have you ever donated to or volunteered on one of Carolyn McCarthy's campaigns?
After you indicate how you've been involved we'll give you information about how to contact Rep. McCarthy right now and urge her to sign the pledge.
Thanks for all you do.
