Sen. Diane Feinstein canceled a campaign fundraiser after the Roll Call published a Lobbyist's invitation to constituents inviting them to attend. The invitation to donate to Feinstein's campaign listed Feinstein's various Committee roles as meal courses on the fundraiser's luncheon menu (i.e. power on the menu to be bought).
What's a Senator to do when a contributor lobbyist exposes the naked relationship between campaign fund raising and getting the ear of the Senator for various legislative matters to come up in the Senator's various committee agendas? Cancel it, of course, and issue a statement that the Invitation would likely be, now get this: "Misinterpreted!"
You can read the full story at the Washington Times (a conservative news paper). There is only one way our representatives in Congress can be divorced from their wealthy K-Street Lobbyist contributors, and that is by the force of a growing anti-incumbent movement amongst voters, capable of unseating ever larger percentages of those seeking reelection. Only then will they be free to re-marry the American people, and represent and defend the people's expectations for a Congress whose job they can approve of in the polls.
You can make this happen. Talk up anti-incumbent voting. Explain it to your friends and family. Proudly display one of our Vote Out Incumbents car window or bumper stickers. Or, become a contributing member of VOID helping us cover the cost to reach ever more Americans with the anti-incumbent logic and rationale (window sticker is included membership package).
Speech is free. Communication is very expensive. Help us pay the communication costs to reach more voters. Become a member and walk proudly for government reform that means something for us all.
