NO on Hans von Spakovsky

Demand the Senate take a stand against voter suppression

Hans von Spakovsky has made a career out of suppressing the vote of minorities, most recently at the Department of Justice (DOJ). Under Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez, von Spakovsky led the charge to turn the DOJ into an agency that undermines voting rights instead of protecting them.

Now Bush wants von Spakovsky to be confirmed for a seat on the Federal Election Commission (FEC), the agency in charge of enforcing election finance laws. It's an insult to Blacks, other minorities, and all who are struggling to maintain fair access to our democracy.

Please join us below in calling on all members of the Senate to oppose von Spakovsky's confirmation and to send a strong statement to the White House that voter suppression will not be tolerated and that those who engage in voting suppression have no place in the electoral system.

Love that site

So far every email I've received is something that is really important. I'm glad you posted this. Hans von Spakovsky is dangerous from what I've read. I think it was at Josh Marshall's place, but could have been Kos or FDL.

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.
