Tea Party name-calling won't stop us.

Dear Friend,

Tea Party Republican extremists are getting frightened — and they're saying anything they can to marginalize our growing effort to hold them accountable.

Joe Walsh called us "liberal elites with an extreme agenda."1 Mike Fitzpatrick says we're "a little organization... out of San Francisco, California."2 And Tea Party King Steve King says we're all just "counter-cultural leftists."3

But the facts speak for themselves. Nearly 32,000 concerned Americans have already gone to bat to restore a measure of sanity to Congress.

Now we're on the verge of another major milestone that will be impossible to marginalize.

Chip in $5 to help reach $1,000,000 to hold Tea Party extremists accountable.

It's ironic that these Tea Party Republicans who are giving polluters free rein to make us sick, slashing medical benefits for hundreds of thousands of seniors and even voting to block the Violence Against Women Act are calling us extreme.

But it's a distraction, pure and simple.

They want their constituents to look the other way, as they wage these radical attacks while raking in big money from corporations and the likes of Karl Rove and the Kochs.

Steve King for example has directly collected nearly $30,000 in campaign contributions from Koch Industries and The Citizens United Political Victory Fund — which was responsible for the Citizens United decision that opened the floodgates of corporate money in our democracy — and there is no telling how much their SuperPACs will invest in King and his fellow Tea Party Republicans.

We're combating this corporate assault on our democracy with genuine grassroots activism. We've already hired more than 25 paid, full time field staff, opened eight district offices, and recruited nearly 6,000 local activists to get involved.

But there's a long, hard, vitally important fight ahead of us. And we need your help to win.

Chip in with a $5 contribution now.

Thanks for standing up to Tea Party extremism, and helping to bring us so far already,

Mudcat Arnold, Campaign Manager
