Barbara Boxer's Letter
Just received this email from Barbara Boxer:

On Election Night last November, I told you how honored I was that Californians elected me to a third term in the United States Senate. I explained that I would be so proud to walk onto the Senate floor and fight for you.

Little did I know that I would need to be fighting so soon after I was sworn in. My actions last week were desperately needed to shine light upon the rampant voting irregularities that occurred during the 2004 Presidential election. In my floor statement, I wondered, "How can we ask our brave men and women to fight a war to bring democracy to Iraq, if we allow the disenfranchisement of so many here at home?"

Seeing no other way to get my colleagues to focus on this issue, I stood up to challenge the Electoral College vote.

And, I'm going to keep standing up.

I'm going to stand up and fight for our shared American values -- economic justice, social justice, environmental justice, electoral justice, and a woman's right to choose.

But, I can only continue to do this if you are behind me. We need to stick together. In response to my actions last week, the right-wing extremists are ratcheting up their partisan attacks on me -- and I need you now more than ever.

So, stay tuned in the coming days as we enter the next phase of our movement to change America for the better.

In Friendship,

Barbara Boxer
U.S. Senator
