If we are going to triumph over Karl Rove, the Koch brothers, and all the secret special interest billionaires trying to buy our race, we have to hit our goal before midnight tonight — there's only $8,752 left to go.
The hypocrisy is out of control. It's only my first term in the Senate, and while I feel like I've heard all the political absurdity possible in Washington, I just can't get over the incredible disconnect between Tea Party rhetoric and the reality we all know to be true.
Tonight at 10:30 CT, Claire will go up against Stephen Colbert on The Colbert Report in a debate about secret political contributions that fund Karl Rove's organization and others like it.
As fans of the Report know, Colbert has been a champion of the political system that allows unlimited anonymous political contributions from corporations and billionaires - so much so, that he's created his own 501(c)(4) through a company called Anonymous Shell Corporation.
This is going to be must see TV, and I hope you won't miss it.
A few weeks ago we received an email from one of our donors telling us that this donation was her first. Not her first contribution to Claire — her first political contribution in her life. Brenda's story is not unique.
