    We Are #1! #1 in Right-Wing Attacks Against Us!



    On Friday, the DC newspaper "Politico" reported that:

    (a) "conservative outside groups" have now spent over $9 million "slamming vulnerable House Democrats," and

    (b) the total against me will reach "at least $1.7 million by the end of next week."

    Think about that. I am only one member of the U.S. House of Representatives, out of 435. I represent one-quarter of one percent of America. And yet roughly TWENTY PERCENT of spending in the entire country by these shadowy right-wing groups has been spent to defeat . . .

    Me.

    I feel so proud!

    I must be doing something right.

    This is my first term in Congress. I have no seniority. I donít sit on the most powerful committees, like the Appropriations Committee or the Ways and Means Committee. Iím not a member of the Democratic Leadership. So why would these right-wing groups spend nearly 20 percent of their entire national budget to try to defeat me?

    Because I canít be bought. I wonít do what they tell me to do. And I wonít back down.

    There are 12,000 registered federal lobbyists. Thatís more than 20 for every member of Congress. From Election Night onward, they try to buy you. And if they canít buy you, then they try to bury you. Which is what is happening now.

    My vote is not for sale.

    I owe nothing to anyone but the voters. I wonít go to the lobbyists for help. Thatís why theyíre trying to take me out. The only one to whom I can turn is . . . you.

    So please help our campaign:

    Alan Grayson, I see that you're a member of a website that routinely wishes death & illness on politicians, suggested that President Bush steered Hurricane Katrina into New Orleans and created tsunamis...do you agree with such mainstream views on that site?
