According to Salon, American Crossroads, the "non-profit" organization run by Karl Rove, raised $2.6M in August, with 91% of that money coming from three--just three--billionaires. In addition, The New York Times reported that American Crossroads abuses a regulatory loophole to cash these $1M checks and avoid the restrictions that normally apply to non-profit organizations.
Here's what they didn't report: In August 34,000 of you helped raise $4.3M for Democrats on ActBlue. In other words, you beat Karl Rove and his band of billionaires by almost $2M. ActBlue is the antidote to Rove's dirty pool: no anonymous donations, no corporate money. And, unlike American Crossroads, we let you decide where you want to send your money.
ActBlue puts the decision--and the power--in your hands, not ours. If you think that's something worth fighting for, then please:
