I’m Ben Cohen (of Ben & Jerry’s). Like all of you, I believe we must find a way to take our democracy back from big money.
Now we have a great chance to send a message to the status quo by taking on one of the most powerful members of Congress & protector of the establishment.
As Chair of the Democratic Party, Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL) used her power to help special interests at the expense of everyday Americans. All of you aren’t Democrats. I get that. But when one of the two major political powers is led by someone who enables corruption, we all have a problem.
That’s why I’ve work so hard for Bernie Sanders. That’s why I’ve helped spread the Stamp Out Big Money movement. That’s why I’ve marched with Larry Lessig. And that’s why I was one of the first supporters of MAYDAY.US.
Today, I’m writing to ask you to help MAYDAY.US build the resources it needs to win an incredibly important fight to defeat Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
Since her election to Congress, Schultz has consistently sided with big money interests against everyday voters. Here are a few more examples of Schultz looking out for donors instead of voters in her district.
- She lifted a seven year ban on lobbyists donating to the DNC, making it easier for special interests to set the political agenda.
- She opposed SEC and IRS efforts to require disclosure of corporate political contributions.
- She opposed limits on Payday Lending after receiving hundreds of thousands of dollars from Wall Street.
We need to send a clear message about what we want this democracy to be. And there is no better way to send that message than to help us support her incredible challenger in the Democratic Primary, Tim Canova.
Tim has been looking out for people his whole career, and that’s why he was one of the few candidates Bernie Sanders recently endorsed to take on the establishment. Compare Tim’s website to Debbie’s and you’ll find his number one issue is fixing corruption; Debbie doesn’t even list it as an issue.
Those are just some of the reasons why 92.5% of you (really, that’s the number!) voted for MAYDAY.US to oppose Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
And so I am urging all of you to join me, and Bernie Sanders, and thousands from across this country to support Tim, and to help get us a democracy that represents us. Chip in $50 now to unseat Debbie Wasserman Schultz and replace her with a real champion of reform.
With your help, MAYDAY.US can take on one of corruption’s biggest enablers.
Thank you for all you’ve done, and everything that you will do.
Peace, Love, & Ice Cream,
