My good friends Howie Klein (Down With Tyranny), John Amato (Crooks & Liars) and some others are putting their grassroots progressive values into action. After helping a number of progressive candidates, they realized they had enough money left in their Act Blue Blue America account to help one more deserving candidate, if they pooled the remaining $$ and asked for some more contributions.
Well now they are very close to their goal of helping onetime-radio host and current progressive congressional candidate from the Detroit suburbs, Tony Trupiano. They need $8000 more at last count to make a large buy with an excellent new ad made by an outside-the-beltway pro. This is a worthy cause, as the difference between Tony and the GOP ghoul McCotter, presently holding the seat, is like the difference in the novel-crafting of Gore Vidal and Lynne Cheney (you can read all about what they are up to at Howie's site or C&L).
So go give a little scratch. And help get us another progressive in Congress.
