Help Christine Jennings Fight For Her Seat in FL-13

Dear Friend,
_Help Christine fight for electoral justice -- contribute to her recount
fund today!_ (

While four weeks have passed since the American people overwhelmingly cast a
vote for change by putting Democrats in charge of both Houses of Congress,
there is still a race that has yet to be conclusively decided that deserves
our attention.
Democrat Christine Jennings, who rose from a bank teller at age 17 to become
the founding President and CEO of Sarasota Bank, is locked in a tough
recount battle to determine the next representative of Florida's 13th
district. Ironically, this is Katherine Harris' old seat.
Recently, the state of Florida certified a 369 vote victory for Christine's
opponent despite the fact that there were serious problems with the voting
machines used in the election. These problems have raised major questions about
the integrity of the election, and Christine is fighting to make sure
every intended vote is counted.

today!_ (
In Christine's home of Sarasota County, election officials have maintained
that an astounding 18,000 voters simply did not vote in her Congressional race
-- a 14% "undervote" that is six times higher than the undervote rate in the
rest of the district. This statistical aberration, combined with numerous
reports of voters who said they voted for Jennings but didn't see this choice
registered on their voting summary, makes it clear that a new election or
re-vote is the only solution.
Christine has filed suit to contest the election results, and she will
continue to fight back. But she needs help -- _click here to contribute to her

After what we saw in Florida in 2000 and Ohio in 2004, I've worked to make
election integrity a top priority. Given the statistical discrepancies between
undervotes in Sarasota County and the rest of the 13th District, coupled
with reports of voting machine error, this race may represent a worst case
scenario for those of us who feared something like this was bound to happen
In this election, it seems reasonable to assume that the clear intent of the
voters was thwarted by faulty voting machines. These allegations are
currently being investigated, and it is critically important that we determine
exactly what went wrong in FL-13. But to do that, Christine and her campaign
resources to continue their fight for electoral justice. Please join me and
do what you can to support her.

help her determine whether electronic voting machines changed the election!_
Not only is it vital that we work to ensure the integrity of this election,
it is also worth fighting to bring Christine Jennings to Washington. I
campaigned with Christine in the final weeks of her campaign, and I know she
be a strong voice for change as part of the new Democratic majority in
I hope that you will support Christine in her fight to ensure that every
intended vote is counted and counted accurately. The fight to ensure that we
have fair and accurate elections is a fight to preserve the very heart of our
Democracy. _Please contribute what you can to support her recount fund today! _
