We always expected that George Allen would go on the attack against Tim Kaine - but now Allen's campaign is attacking you.
In the past three months, we've used many tools to build our network of grassroots supporters, including using a website - ActBlue -- which makes it easy to process contributions from small donors who want to take back ownership of our political process.
Responding to the outpouring of support we've received, Allen's campaign went on the attack, calling ActBlue and our small donors "special interests."
This is absolutely absurd. The real special interests in this race are the ones funding Karl Rove's shadowy group that accepts anonymous, limitless contributions so they can run attack ads here in Virginia.
Together, let's send a message: when the Allen campaign denigrates the power of ordinary individuals to come together to change our politics, it only motivates us to fight harder to send Tim Kaine to the US Senate.
Even Virginia's leading conservative blog, Bearing Drift, called the Allen campaign's attack "misguided, considering ActBlue's role is to be a medium for online giving from individual donors."
