Jury glitch

Served on jury, voted, and got the results email and was told I was still on jury service. Had to cancel to get out of the loop.

Today's vote on the DISCLOSE Act is a big one.

Don't know if this has been posted or not, but I think it's very important.

Today's vote on the DISCLOSE Act is a big one.

The Supreme Court's disastrous decision in Citizens United has allowed corporations and special interests to spend hundreds of millions of dollars to try and buy our elections -- all the while remaining anonymous.

The DISCLOSE Act will expose these corporations and special interests and bring their money out of the shadows.

But the last time this bill was up for a vote, our opponents filibustered it, so I need your help now to show them that we're not backing down and are ready to fight for our democracy.

Join over 235,657 people and and sign the petition to pass the DISCLOSE Act before the vote today!

As the lead author of this bill, I'm doing everything in my power to pass the DISCLOSE Act. But I'll be honest with you: There's a good chance the DISCLOSE Act is going to be filibustered again.

But we're not going to just walk away. We're not going to back down. If the bill gets filibustered again, several of my colleagues and I will take to the Senate floor tonight.

We're going to shine a little light on our opponents for their refusal to shine a light on the secret corporate and special interest money polluting our democracy.

And if we have to, we'll make opponents of the bill vote on it again on Tuesday.

Knowing that hundreds of thousands of Americans like yourself are behind us will embolden and empower my colleagues and I to fight for all of us.

Sign our petition now: Pass the DISCLOSE Act to expose secret corporate and special interest money in our elections.

Thank you.

Sincerely,


Sheldon Whitehouse
U.S. Senator
