Action of the Week: Write the FEC


We know that not everyone has the stamina – and good knees – to Walk the Talk across New Hampshire.  As we get closer to the NH Primary, we need legions of Armchair Rebels to TAKE ACTION if we are going to end Big Money politics!

Each week, we'll ask you to take a different action.  We may ask you to write a letter to the editor, give the campaigns a piece of your mind, or call your representatives and demand action.  We may ask you to collect signatures for our town warrant initiative or tweet up a storm.  Whatever the action, we promise to keep it easy, relevant, and fun.

ACTION OF THE WEEK:  Demand the FEC enforce the law!
We are getting reports that Big Money interests are blurring the lines on campaign-SuperPAC coordination.  This piece by NH Public Radio's Emily Corwin, "Pro-Fiorina Super PAC Tests Boundaries in Campaign Ground Game," gives a prime example of the suspect activity happening on the NH Primary campaign trail.   

We need you to write a letter to the Federal Election Commission and raise hell.  Why are campaigns and Big Money interests allowed to engage in this collusion?  Why have candidates filmed advertising with their Super PACs?  The FEC needs to enforce the existing law!

Write a short letter to:
Federal Election Commission
999 E Street, NW
Washington, DC 20463

You can even multiply your impact six-fold by addressing a copy of your letter to each of the six Commissioners at the same address: Chair Ann Ravel, Vice Chair Matthew Petersen, Lee Goodman, Caroline Hunter, Steven Walther, and Ellen Weintraub. 

Do you have ideas about how you can help as an Armchair Rebel?  We want to hear your ideas!

Onward!
Brian and the NH Rebellion team
