On June 20, 2012, Nick Nyhart, CEO and President of Public Campaign, Joan Mandle, Executive Director of Democracy Matters, Tracy Leatherberry of Common Cause and others delivered a people's indictment for crimes against our democracy to Karl Rove, American Crossroads, and Crossroads GPS.
Detailing an attempt to subvert and sell our democracy, the indictment was also mic check'd from the street by hundreds of protesters in 100 degree DC heat. The protest was organized by the Campaign for America's Future, OurDC and others who took to the street.
The people demanded Rove cease and desist immediately.
The following actions establish probable cause that crimes against our democracy did in fact occur.
COUNT I: Collusion with secretive groups and state legislatures to keep people from exercising their right to vote;
COUNT II: Conspiracy with billionaires to elect politicians who will do their bidding at the expense of the health and security of the 99 percent;
COUNT III: Engaging in fraudulent use of nonprofit status in order to shield their political activities from public scrutiny;
COUNT IV: Laundering political cash through supposed social welfare groups to deny Americans the knowledge of who is trying to buy their elections;
COUNT V: Silencing the voices of everyday voters by flooding our elections
with corporate money from the 1 percent.
You are hereby commanded to cease and desist from these actions that undermine our democracy and the American dream. Failure to comply may result in citizens' arrest.
Organized by Campaign for America's Future, Rebuild the Dream, People for the American Way, Public Campaign, The Other 98%, Health Care for America Now, Common Cause, Alliance for Justice, Public Citizen, SEIU and others.
