WHAT: "Stop Corruption" Protest this Wednesday at 9:45 a.m. EST

DETAILS: Members of MoveOn.org Political Action will launch their "Stop Corruption First" campaign Wednesday with a protest outside Grover Norquist's "Wednesday Group" meeting. The group will be joined by Campaign for America's Future and the Public Campaign Action Fund - leading anti-corruption groups. Norquist was a principal architect of the now infamous GOP K Street, "pay-to-play" project.
Norquist, with his allies DeLay, Santorum and Abramoff, were creators of a scheme to ensure lobbying firms, most of whose offices are located on K Street, would only hire Republicans and would make large contributions to GOP political action ommittees and candidates in order to secure passage of legislation for their clients.
