Reacting to George Bush’s 527 Bashing

Don’t forget to express your opinions on the GOP’s attempts to limit free speech in this country. Here’s an example letter for you to use:

Dear FEC Commissioners,

It’s clearly better to have money donated to organizations like 527 programs than directly to campaigns because it prevents the quid pro quo ethical issues that have been running rampant in the current administration. was nice enough to provide us with a form to use:
