One $100,000 chapstick

Friends - Just a couple of days ago, Marjorie Taylor Greene decided to bid $100,000 on Kevin McCarthy’s used chapstick to raise money for the National Republican Congressional Committee while our government approaches default. How tasteful! Instead of focusing on debt ceiling negotiations and pr…

Add your name to be an official citizen cosponsor of my bill the People Over Parking Act of 2023.

Friends - Earlier this month, I submitted the People Over Parking Act of 2023 to Congress, a bill in the U.S. House of Representatives that eliminates parking minimums across the country in transit-rich zones. This is an important bill for our climate and a step toward increasing affordable hous…

I’m the far-right’s newest target

Friends - Yesterday, I forced a resolution on the House floor to require a vote on the expulsion of George Santos from Congress. Republicans have less than 48 hours to go on the record about whether they will choose party politics or accountability of Santos. There is no doubt in my mind that th…

Hi Team — I am writing to humbly ask you to contribute to my campaign before we reach our mid-month deadline at midnight. Here’s the thing: running this movement takes a lot of resources and support, and truthfully, we have seen a massive fundraising slowdown this quarter. Tonight at midnight ma…

We are asking for your help

Hi Team — When Robert decided to run for Congress in 2021, he also made one critical decision that continues to affect how our campaign runs to this day. He decided to reject all corporate PAC money. That was a really big decision because campaigns these days are very expensive, especially in th…

George Santos is getting out of hand

Team, George Santos is getting out of hand. George Santos wants to divide the LGBTQ+ community. He wants to pit lesbian, gay, and bisexual people against our trans community. This rhetoric is dangerous. Not only does Santos not understand how harmful this tweet could be for members of the LGBTQ…

Trans kids deserve to live authentically and participate with other kids who they identify with.

Hi friend — Yesterday, House Republicans passed a bill to bar trans women and girls from competing on female sports teams in school. This ban is a clear violation of Title IX. Knowing very well that this bill has no chance of being passed in the Senate or being signed by President Biden, Kevin M…
