Our petition to demand that Hastert schedule a recorded vote on the DeLay Rule is nearing 5,000 signatories. As of 7:20 this morning, we have 4,891 signers.
Can we get to 5,000 today? How about a little old-fashioned incentive:
A free book to the 5,000 signer -- my colleagues Micah Sifry and Nancy Watzman's Is That a Politician in Your Pocket? Washington on $2 Million a Day is the contemporary read on money in politics. We will send you your own copy if you put us over the top.
If you have your heart set on the book, there are two more ways to get one: First, after you sign the petition, use our tell-a-friend feature, and if the 5,000 signer comes from your outreach, we will send you a book, too.
Second, and this one is guaranteed, go to Amazon or the service of your choosing and purchase one. It is well worth the ten bucks.
