I'm in too. I've called the WH Switchboard often enough, I am afraid I might be on a list somewhere.

Would help to call our senators and reps, too? I'm practically on first name with my GOP rep's staff from calling so much!

From Russ Feingold - Progressives United

News leaked this week: the White House is considering an executive order that would require more disclosure from corporate forces trying to influence our democracy.

It's the definition of corruption for companies to try to win government contracts by influencing our elections. Even the appearance of corruption undermines our democratic institutions and representative government.

We know that as progressives, and the president knows that too. And since Congress has failed to close a gaping loophole that would allow precisely that type of corruption, the president is considering an executive order that would require government contractors to disclose their contributions to groups who get involved in elections.

We need to make sure this proposal actually happens, because corporate lobbyists are lining up against the president's plan.

Right now, corporate-backed groups are planning to attack the president -- and force him to drop any plan to require more disclosure. We know these lobbyists play tough -- they've stalled this kind of action in Congress for years

Call the White House and tell them you want the Pres. to sign the EO!

“Cowardice asks the question, 'Is it safe?' Expediency asks the question, 'Is it politic?' But conscience asks the question, 'Is it right?' And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but because conscience tells one it is right.” ~Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
