Good job everyone.

Joe Sudbay of AmericaBlog and Reverend Lennox Yearwood delivered 32,000 signatures to the FEC, cosigning the complaint filed last Thursday against John McCain and his campaign. It took three reams of paper and 1,400 pages to print it all out. This morning at a McCain event in Alexandria, McCain was introduced as a "hero" because of his work in campaign finance reform.

You can still cosign the complaint here. If you missed the story you can read all about it here. As Jane rightfully says. The law applies to everyone else---except---John McCain. I'm working on a fun little contest that I should have up and running in a few days about this very issue.

Can you help us out?
