Color of Change and Blue America PAC teamed up to run the above ad in the Washington Post, placing the blame for the FISA travesty in the House squarely where it belongs -- on the shoulders of Steny Hoyer. It will appear next Thursday.
Our prisons are a mess. The drug laws are tremendously inequitable. And what does Steny Hoyer spend his time doing? Dispensing amnesty for high-dollar telecom donors, giving the Bush Administration more than they asked for, and covering his own ass for looking the other way in the face of abject criminal behavior for the past eight years.
This is just the beginning. We've now raised over $266,000 and we're working hard to put it to good use, and make sure a price is exacted for this abuse of the public trust. You can help by donating here.

In 2004, Rady Ananda joined the growing community of citizen journalists. Initially focused on elections, she investigated the 2004 Ohio election, organizing, training and leading several forays into counties to photograph the 2004 ballots. She officially served at three recounts, including the 2004 recount. She also organized and led the team that audited Franklin County Ohio's 2006 election, proving the number of voter signatures did not match official results. Her work appears in three books.
Her blogs also address religious, gender, sexual and racial equality, as well as environmental issues; and are sprinkled with book and film reviews on various topics. She spent most of her working life as a researcher or investigator for private lawyers, and five years as an editor.
She graduated from The Ohio State University's School of Agriculture in December 2003 with a B.S. in Natural Resources.
