More great news for our campaign, and many thanks to all those who helped. As we noted last week, over ten thousand of you have sent letters to Congress and the Department of Justice demanding an investigation of Karl Rove's American Crossroads group for raising and spending tens of millions in secret corporate donations to support pro-corporate candidates. These letters convinced Senate Finance Committee Chair Max Baucus to ask the Internal Revenue Service to conduct a full investigation into all groups improperly using a tax-exempt status to manipulate elections. And today, a formal complaint was filed with the IRS accusing Rove's American Crossroads group of illegally doing just that. See the complaint here.

We have been working closely with the Campaign Legal Center that filed this IRS complaint and we expect to file additional legal complaints in the coming days with the Federal Elections Commission and the Department of Justice. Our campaign has become the go-to resource for the media, politicians and even candidates who want to know about the shadowy groups trying to buy politicians. And we have just released four new ads calling on GOP candidates in Florida, Illinois, Kentucky and Pennsylvania to reject the support of Rove and American Crossroads.

We need your support to run these ads, press releases, and legal filings. Please make a donation here to help us and protect our elections this year.

There is a great deal of information on the site, so spend some time there and pass it on to your friends.
