For the past two days, Don Siegelman been working in DC and meeting with Members of Congress, trying to build support to get the Karl Rove contempt citation up for a vote and trying to count votes for final passage.
Two important areas where we need help:
1. Convincing the Democratic leadership that this will be good for our country and good for those running for re-election, and
2. Getting the word out to some key Democrats that their vote on the Rove contempt citation is critical!
Game plan: Write and fax the Members of Congress in the table below — and, if you haven’t already, email your own Member of Congress at www.ContemptForRove.com. Then, on Monday, start calling their offices in DC and their offices back in their Districts.
Message: Letting Rove off the hook is bad for our country and bad for Democrats running for re-election. Democrats are in a majority and should stand up to Rove and defend our constitution and begin to restore justice and our democracy. If Rove is not held in contempt, his followers will wreak havoc on the November elections: more voter suppression, more voting equipment failures and shortages of workers and equipment in key Democratic precincts, more votes stolen.
If Democrats suck it up and vote to hold Rove in contempt, they send two messages: ONE, Democrats can be trusted to defend our Constitution and will restore justice and preserve our democracy. TWO, if Rove is held in contempt, the “Rove Clones” will get the message that they too may get a subpoena and think twice before carrying out more election day subversion.
The key Democrats to whom we need to offer our support:
* Please remember to write and fax TODAY!
* Please email your own Member TODAY!
* Please call and fax on MONDAY and TUESDAY!
We are told that Wednesday and/or Thursday may be our only remaining time to get a vote. So please start now: Fax, email, and call!
P.S. Please forward this to everyone you know, and invite them to email their Members of Congress as well!
Thank you Dharmaniacs! Anything you can do to help Don will also help our country and will be greatly appreciated.
