I have just sent the following to:
- Ohio Congresswoman Marcia L. Fudge
- Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown
- Ohio Senator George Voinovich
In the wake of the recent Supreme Court decision which, for all intents and purposes, strikes down the McCain-Feingold campaign finance laws, let’s get something straight here:
You were voted in by THE PEOPLE, NOT some corporation with deep pockets, NOT some lobbying group with a lavish budget, but the PEOPLE OF YOUR DISTRICT OR YOUR STATE. If because you have opted to be more beholden to someone with a wad of cash who wants to (let’s be honest now) BUY YOUR VOTE, then democracy in the United States becomes a lie, a poor joke which I cannot and will not laugh at.
I am not asking you to take action against this decision; I AM TELLING YOU TO. If you have any serious interest in your position as a representative of the people who voted you into office, you will find a means to take action against this ruling. I expect nothing less of you, whether I voted for you or not.
