McKinney/Clemente Update 9/3/08

Hello Powerful People:

Welcome to the 14th issue of the Power to the People Committee,
Cynthia McKinney / Rosa Clemente Campaign Update.

— Host Your Own “Road to the White House” Houseparty —

Cynthia McKinney is scheduled to appear on Road to the White House, scheduled to air on on CSPAN-1, Sunday, September 7 at 6:30 pm EST and again at 9:30 pm EST that same night.

This provides us with a unique opportunity to hold fundraising house parties with voters all across this country.

Every McKinney-Clemente ticket supporter with cable tv and chairs is urged to invite your neighbors, co-workers, friends and family to watch the show, discuss the issues and the campaign, to pledge their volunteer support and to make a financial contribution to the McKinney-Clemente campaign.

Those with computers and an internet connection can capture online donations right there in your home, or for check writers, please use the contribution form provided below to document donations for FEC compliance.

Road to the White House repeats three hours later. You could even schedule your house party in shifts, an early and a late crowd.

— Ballot Access —

Our final ballot access deadlines (in Vermont and Kentucky) come this and next week. We’ll soon know where we are on and where we are running as a write-in. Next we move into the General Election phase of our campaign, demanding Cynthia and Rosa a place in the debates, identifying our supporters and preparing for our Get out the vote efforts in late October. Watch next week’s issue for details on how we’ve done.

This week we learned of our Court victory in Ohio, and in the yesterday morning Cynthia filed in Utah. We already have ballot lines in 25 states, enough to win the electoral college if our candidates win the popular vote in all or most of them. We are days away from securing ballot lines in another seven states, bringing our total to thirty-two. We also have write-in status in seven other states, with paperwork still under way in another eight states (and territories).

Already we have fulfilled all requirements in twenty-five states, including: Arkansas, Arizona, California, Colorado, Deleware, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Washington, Washington DC and West Virginia.

Our ballot access paperwork is still in process in another seven states including: Hawaii, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Nebraska, Nevada, Wisconsin and Virginia.

The write-in States include: Alabama, Georgia, Indiana, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Texas and Wyoming.

And write-in paperwork is still in process in: American Samoa, Connecticut, Idaho, Kansas, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota and Pennsylvania.

For the moment we are still working to put together the filing fees necesary to obtain a couple more ballot lines. If you can contribute to this effort, please do so here:

— Campaign Visibility —

Speaking in Detroit last weekend, Cynthia contrasted standard set for impeachment by each of the corporate parties with that she espouses (through her introduction of H. Res 1106 in the 109th Congress).

Rosa Clemente took the stage at events in St. Paul surrounding the RNC, speaking at multiple events, including the Open Debates Rally. As one example, see:

The “Some of All Parts” has released its new music video, “Run (An Historical Moment)”. Sampling the acceptance speeches of Cynthia McKinney and Rosa Clemente, this song is interwoven with inspiring lyrics about our collective aspirations. This song offers an opportunity to help spread the word about this important campaign. Please share this broadly.

Rosa and Cynthia both attended and spoke at the Hip-Hop Political Convention in Las Vegas Nevada. The Final Call covered the story:

— A Tribute to a Former Colleague —

The Power to the People campaign mourns the loss of Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones. A Representative from Cleveland and its suburbs since the retirement of progressive icon Louis Stokes in 1998, Tubbs Jones was a rare trustworthy politician in a system full of crooks. She and Cynthia collaborated in the objection to the certification of Ohio’s electoral votes in the 2004 Presidential election. Our thoughts are with her family and the citizens of Ohio’s 11th district, and it is our hope that Tubbs Jones’ successor is as dedicated to serving the American people as she was.

  1. There is no issue to dodge; there are fanatics who continue lies from 1992! Ever stop to think that Cynthia has bought into a myth that started as a propaganda campaign by Saddam Hussein’s government when he wanted out from under the UN Sanctions that ended the Gulf War. I am rather surprised that the Huffington Post even commented since they usually are not into posting myths.

    “The Huffington Post gives Cynthia credit for acknowledging the issue of depleted uranium, which members of the Democratic and Republican parties have dodged.”

    Glad that Obama has not bought into this lie upon lie issue. There is no “depleted uranium” issue. Too bad that Cynthia is not scientifically smart enough to know that!
