In just the last few months, you learned:
Rep. Paul Ryan was booed by his own constituents for supporting more tax cuts for the wealthy.
Herman Cain said he wouldn’t appoint a Muslim to his cabinet.
Sen. Scott Brown begged right-wing billionaire David Koch for a donation.
How do you know these things? Because ThinkProgress reported them. We were there, asking tough questions and holding the right-wing accountable. We brought you these stories and many others that you can’t find anywhere else.
We’ve been to 20 states, attended hundreds of events, and conducted interviews with nine presidential candidates and 56 members of Congress. Today, we have reporters chasing down stories in Des Moines, Iowa and Columbia, South Carolina.
But this kind of aggressive, on-the-ground reporting isn’t cheap. We need to raise $20,000 in the next week to keep this show on the road.
The right wishes we would go away — they call us names, question our motives, and belittle our values. But stakes are too high to stop fighting. We need you to join our effort to bring you the truth, straight from the source.
Thank you for your support.
