Delivering the petitions
to Speaker Pelosi

It's been a little more than a week since smirking Justice Alito tried to auction our country off to the highest bidder, and we're not going to let Saudi Arabia or Exxon buy our democracy.

Over 205,000 people have signed petitions to support our initiatives to restrain corporate money and save our democracy. On Friday, I delivered your petitions to Speaker Pelosi. She knows that our democracy is in peril, and she now knows that you will support her if she delivers forceful reforms.

Many of my House colleagues understand the threat as well. Rep. Bill Pascrell has introduced a bill to ban foreign interference in our elections. Rep. Mike Capuano has introduced a bill to strengthen shareholder rights over electioneering decisions. And committee hearings are going to start next week to delve into what is the best way to defend our nation from this threat.

As we move forward, we will begin to examine these bills, cosponsor some of them, and encourage our movement to drive them through Congress.

Throughout the process, though, the message to Speaker Pelosi and everyone else in Congress is very simple: Corporations should not be able to buy our elections. We are not going to accept the Supreme Court's radical injustice. We are going to save our democracy.

In times of crisis, as Howard Zinn noted, it has always been the people who saved the republic. This is our time.

Best,

Alan Grayson
Member of Congress
