UnPAC.org, an initiative to fight big money’s influence on the 2012 elections

United
Republic, Purpose, and Rootstrikers have partnered to launch unPAC.org, an
initiative to fight big money’s influence on the 2012 elections by mobilizing a
massive movement. From social networks to town halls to blogs, unPAC will
amplify your voice to shed light on big special interests and the politicians
they corrupt.

Dear The McGlynn,

Tonight in London, Mitt Romney is throwing a fundraiser and top banking
executives have forked over $75,000 a piece to attend. These are not your
average millionaires. They are leaders of Barclays and 15 other banks
that were involved in the biggest banking scam in recent history

manipulating the LIBOR interest rate. By illegally setting this rate for
their own gain, they affected pensions and consumer interest rates.

These scandal-ridden execs know that if they buy politicians, they
won’t have to trade their pin stripe suits for jailbird jumpsuits.

They’re hedging their bets and writing huge checks to both Romney and Obama. We
need to speak out and tell both Presidential candidates that, by taking
money from bankers who stole from American pensions, they have crossed the
line.

We’re going to track each dollar they accept from banking executives tied to
the scandal. If we get 50,000 people to support our effort by September 15,
we’ll publish our message in a major newspaper.

Sign
this letter to tell both Romney and Obama to reject campaign cash from corporate
criminals.

The biggest losers from the LIBOR scandal are grandma and
grandpa.
Since LIBOR manipulation began in 2007, foreclosures for
elderly retirees have skyrocketed—over 1.5 million homeowners over 50 have lost
their homes and the foreclosure rate for the over-75 crowd has increased by 867
percent.

The UK Parliament fined Barclays $450 million, and last week 11 members of
Parliament signed a resolution urging Barclays’ executives to keep their hands
out of American political campaigns and focus their efforts on building consumer
confidence. The U.S. Justice Department is expected to file criminal charges
this year, not to mention thousands of class-action lawsuits.

Scandals like LIBOR will keep happening as long as politicians
continue to accept money from rule-bending bankers who think they can get away
with anything as long as they write a big enough check.
This election,
we have a chance to tell presidential candidate that we won’t stand for it
anymore.

Sign
this letter to tell both Romney and Obama to reject campaign cash from corporate
criminals.

Thanks,

Alberto, Galit, Matt and the entire unPAC team
