Our friend Ady Barkan, the courageous activist who is simultaneously fighting ALS and the Trump Administration, has a creative idea to stop Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination. Read below to learn how you can help:
I want to try a different tactic. We know that money works to convince politicians to do things. Clearly calls, and emails and visits are not working on Senator Susan Collins. In fact, when I visited the Senate last to demand they vote against Trump’s Supreme Court Pick, Brett Kavanaugh, I was arrested.
So what if we tried a new tactic — like kickstarter. What if we pledge $20.20 to fund her future opponent IF she votes for Kavanaugh — like reverse bribery?
If we don’t take action now — if we don’t speak out back against his nomination with an unequivocal voice and demand that our Senators do the same — Kavanaugh will be sitting on the Supreme Court before this year is over.
I may be losing my voice, but I can still send a message, and I have one for Susan Collins, one of the key Senators we need to flip to stop Kavanaugh from being confirmed:
If you vote for Kavanaugh, we will fund your future opponent for 2020.
This is a crucial moment for our movement. Since they arrested me when I tried to share my story in the Senate, this is the only way I can think to reach them now. I hope you’ll join us.
