Max Linn launches "Must Change Congress" fundraising site
Max Linn's new fundraising Web site, titled "Must Change Congress," ties his effort to Sen. Barack Obama's run for the presidency.
The site argues that people need to help folks like Max Linn get elected so that Republican congressmen (read: U.S. Rep. Bill Young) don't stand in Obama's way. The site features a picture of Linn with Obama, who is holding Linn's self-published book "2008: America's Turning Point," news about Obama, and quotes from him. One page of the site shows Republican congressmen and women and links to their opponents.
The site defines itself thus: "Must Change Congress.org and the Million Person March is a political online movement/march of people contributing financially to help support Democratic candidates that are running against destructive, road blocking key Republicans. These Republican representatives have pledged to stop Barack Obama’s policies of change and must be voted out."
