Earmarks special on PBS tonight (2/22/08)

Here is an update on the "earmarks" issue


From the Desk of:
Steve Elliott, President, Alliance


Dear Robert,

I want to thank you for adding your name to our latest petition calling for an end to earmarking in Congress.

My IT staff reports that citizens are signing the petition at a rate of nearly 250 signatures per hour!

Robert, without question this is a critical issue for the American people. That's why I wanted to alert all those who have signed the petition to a program that is airing on PBS tonight (February 22) focusing on "earmarking."

Bill Moyers Journal and the PBS series Expose, profiles Seattle Times reporters as they "follow the money," the flow of billions of dollars siphoned from DC to fund "pet projects."

When: Friday, February 22, 2008

Earmarks have become a symbol of the culture of the widespread corruption on Capitol Hill, and as citizens, we must work diligently to bring a close to this era of dishonesty.

Thanks again for taking quick action with us. Help us spread the word by forwarding this message today.
