No to von Spakovsky, Voter Suppression

(Cross-posted on All Things Democrat)

Hans von Spakovsky has made a career out of suppressing the vote of minorities.

Now Bush wants von Spakovsky to be confirmed for a seat on the Federal Election Commission (FEC), the agency in charge of enforcing election finance laws. It's not a surprise that most Republicans support his nomination. But while Democrats talk about supporting voting rights, most of them are ready to let him through without a fight.

Please join us below in calling on your senators to oppose von Spakovsky's confirmation and to send a strong statement that voter suppression will not be tolerated and that those who engage in voter suppression have no place in the electoral system.
Our democratic representatives have apparently made a deal to push this guy through, a man who has, single-handedly, disenfranchised thousands of minority voters.

This could cost us a fair election.

Be the change.
