Sign Congressman Anthony Weiner's Petition to Force Clarence Thomas to recuse himself from any decisions involving Health Care Reform:
"Conflicted Clarence Thomas
Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas must recuse himself from any cases regarding the constitutionality of the health care reform law.
The Thomas household has profited from opposition to health care reform. His wife has already taken nearly $700,000 from health care opponents and now openly advertises herself as a crack lobbyist with the “experience and connections” to overturn the law of the land.
Use the form on the right to stand with Anthony Weiner and his House colleagues, co-signing their letter and calling on Clarence Thomas to recuse himself from any cases regarding the constitutionality of the health care reform law immediately in the interest of maintaining impartiality in nation's highest court."

Protect Our Elections is a new campaign to push for passage of pending national legislation to protect the votes and public elections of millions of Americans. We have identified common sense federal legislation that will help ensure the fairness of elections, starting with the 2010 mid-term election. It is necessary to call on Congress to demand passage of these important bills.
Specifically, passage of legislation to stop unfair voter challenges, purging of voter rolls, felon disenfranchisement, misleading election information, unlimited corporate financing, and mandatory photo IDs in federal elections will protect voters this year. In addition, a strong, paper ballot requirement, to be fully implemented by 2012, will help protect our elections in time for the next presidential election and mitigate the threat from Internet voting.
You can help in the following ways:
1) Sign the petition to tell your Congress Members to pass this pending legislation. Every person who signs on will have their name added to a second petition that we will deliver to Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid demanding quick passage of these bills. 2) Call your Congress Members and tell them that you want strong election protection legislation passed this year. Enough delay! No legislation is more important than that which shores up our increasingly vulnerable electoral system. You can find the phone numbers here. 3) Urge your friends and favorite organizations to join with this campaign to protect our elections by calling on Congress to act now! 4) Spread the word through social networking so this campaign goes viral on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. Let us know when you post something so we can add it to this site.
