Alan Grayson is a Super Delegate.

He's inviting all of us to vote in his on-line poll for Bernie or HRC.

He says that he, as a super delegate, will cast his electoral vote for which ever candidate wins.

There's a space for you to make a short statement about your vote.

He says he's doing it to be a better super delegate who is guided by actual, regular people.

Suggest you all go over there and vote.

Yep. Nice email gathering idea! And he has got to know Sanders supporters will be all over it!

He's going to endorse Bernie; he just wants to appear to be a populist.

I like Alan, but that's just beneath him.

I've already sent him some money, and I'll vote for him in the primary, because Murphy sucks.

You can always unsubscribe after the election, or mark his emails "spam" at any point. Seems worth it get a super delegate for Bernie.

After seeing him with Ed Schultz tonight on RT, I wondered if he is just trying to increase his potential donor base and email list. Oh well, back on his list I go.... At least he did agree the system is rigged!

Even if he is doing it for donor base—so what? Vote for Bernie in the poll, help him get a super delegate and then can always unsubscribe.

I also got confused by Grayson because I'd heard he'd endorsed HRC. I called his office to find out and couldn't reach a human being. Anyway, seems worth my little effort of it try to help our guy.
