From Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Commmittee....
Dear Deborah ,
Bill Frist, Tom DeLay, and the Republican Party have abused their power and changed the rules again and again, all in an effort to let the right wing take total control of the United States Congress.
When Pat Robertson compared federal judges to the 9/11 terrorists, I was outraged and demanded an immediate apology. Not a single Republican senator was willing to clearly and unequivocally denounce this outrageous rhetoric. They were all too scared of falling out of favor with the radical right wing fringe. So it was no surprise when Robertson didn't even have the good sense to be ashamed, telling me "I owe no one an apology."
And now the Family Research Council, Focus on the Family, and all the biggest right wing power brokers are demanding that Bill Frist blow up more than 200 years of Senate tradition in order to fill our federal courts with ultraconservative judges. Frist is unwilling to stand up to these extremists, so we expect a Senate showdown in just days.
We cannot let them get away with it. Click here to watch the DSCC's hard-hitting new ad.
That's why I am 100% committed to the DSCC's new Media Response Project, our long-term plan to expose the truth every time the Senate Republicans abuse their power and change the rules to satisfy their radical right wing base.
The Media Response Project's first ad - "Out of Control" - is a clear demonstration of how far Bill Frist, Tom DeLay, and the Republican Party are willing to go when they don't get their way. We can talk about this in Washington until our faces turn blue, but we need your help to take our message to the American people and hold the Republican Party accountable for helping the right wing take over Congress.
This ad is just the first step on our way to November 2006 when we can stop these abuses of power by electing more Democrats. But you can be certain that Senate Republicans will fight tooth and nail to change the rules and consolidate their power every day between now and then.
By making a contribution today to the Media Response Project, you give us the resources we'll need to show the American people how Bill Frist, Tom DeLay, and the Republican Party have let the extremist right wing fringe take over Congress.

Make no mistake. Bill Frist, Tom DeLay, and their right wing cronies will not give up their grip on power easily. With your help, we can show the American people that when it comes to abusing their power and changing the rules to get their way, the Republican Party is truly out of control.
