ACTION ALERT: Tell your US Senators to sign the Durbin letter about Gannon

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

FURTHER UPDATE: Senator Reid has now decided to sign the letter, so no good Democrat has any reason not to. Also, you might suggest the Dems read this article by WorldNetDaily, a VERY conservative news source, talking about what a big scandal this really is.

UPDATE: Still sensing some cold feet among the Senate Dems. True, they are on recess this week, so it can be hard to get the boss to sign-off, but still. They'd better not flake out this time.

I'm reposting this because it's important (please share this info on other blogs, post it as your own alert, I don't care). Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) is asking his colleagues in the US Senate to join him in sending a letter to President Bush demanding an investigation of the entire Gannon affair.

This is EXCELLENT. This is newsworthy. Why? Because Durbin is the #2 guy in the Senate Democratic leadership, he's the next in line after Harry Reid. If he is doing this, it means the Democratic leadership is jumping on the Gannon issue.

How can you help?

Durbin is now circulating the letter to other Senate offices, asking them to add their signatures. The Republicans likely won't, though some mods just might. The Dems hopefully will, though some troublemakers might not.


Your job, if you choose to accept it, is to contact your two Senators NOW and urge them to "sign Senator Durbin's 'Dear Colleague' letter about Jeff Gannon, the fake GOP journalist who was wrongfully given access to the White House."

Find your Senators' contact info here - call and email them. Please call the Senators from your home state, and let them know what town you live in, so they know that you really are a constituent. And be nice, as always.
