  •  More grassroots action: write a letter to the ed. (9+ / 0-)

    I think this issue could make a difference in the elections.  Imagine what would happen if letters started appearing discussing the US Chamber's political activities and calling for the local Chamber to quit.  Imagine if the paper itself ran a story in the Local News section about the controversy.

    Even if the local Chamber doesn't disaffiliated, just having that debate in the paper will put the issue of the US Chamber's Secret Republican Slush Fund in front of the eyes of a lot of voters - especially old people who read the Local News section of their local paper but don't read the National/Political News.

    This is a real opportunity.  We win just by having this fight in public.

    Art is the handmaid of human good.
