Open Letter to the Women of Oregon: We Can't Trust Him

Sign on to send the message loud and clear: we can't trust Buehler to stand up for our health and rights.   ------------------------Dear Women of Oregon,  The stakes were raised this week when Supreme Court Justice Kennedy announced his retirement. The threats we feared in the back of our minds, the worst case scenario we talked about with our girlfriends and families in the days after November 8, 2016, suddenly became real and immediate. That fear in the pit of our stomachs. That’s all real now. Be forewarned, Women of Oregon: Republican candidate Knute Buehler will say things that sound nice. But after this week, words just are not enough.  When given the chance, Knute Buehler was willing to gamble with our rights. To turn his back on the values so many of us hold dear.  Knute has given a lot of reasons for why he voted no on the Reproductive Health Equity Act, which enshrined Roe v. Wade into Oregon law. And we’re sure his polished campaign will come up with new excuses that sound even better. But the bottom line is, when given the chance to stand with women, to protect our right to safe, legal abortion in the strongest way possible, Knute Buehler chose to roll the dice.  He chose to vote no, denying that access to abortion is under threat. He voted no and put our future in the hands of Donald Trump. He said Roe v. Wade was settled law. You see, he has the privilege to hope, the privilege to assume.  As of June 27, 2018, all women in this country -- including women of color, undocumented women, our transgender community members -- no longer have the privilege to hope or assume. We are now facing the reality that our rights could easily and quickly be taken away by the vote of a Supreme Court stacked with Trump nominees from the far right. What does this mean? We are on the precipice of losing our agency, our economic freedom, and losing control over decisions we make about our own bodies. We simply cannot allow our daughters and granddaughters to have fewer rights than we do.  Women of Oregon: It's time to take a stand. It's time to vote with our values. It's time to say no to Knute Buehler.  Signed, Senator Elect, Shemia Fagan State Representative, Barbara Smith Warner Metro Council President Elect, Lynn Peterson Multnomah County Commissioner, Jessica Vega Pederson Former Secretary of State, Jeanne Atkins Emily McLain Lisa Gardner Anne Udall Grayson Dempsey Victoria Beccar Varela Caryn Berley Eli Bliss Courtney Dillard Katie Drumm Katherine Gamble Diane Goodwin Courtney Graham Arika Harrison Alexa Jakusovsky Ali King Zoe Klingmann Cassandra Korn Meg Krugel Christine Lewis Val Lim Hannah Love Lindsey O’Brien Julie Peterman Hannah Reagan Elizabeth Robertson Sydney Scout Samantha Sharka Kathleen Stuart Audra Tromly Maya Ward Kali Woodard

Impeach Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens

 Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens was indicted and booked Thursday on a felony invasion of privacy charge for taking a photograph of a nude bound woman. Audio was released claiming he had blackmailed her as this took place while he was running for governor.Governor Gretiens was elected after the public was bombarded with adds featuring him shooting over 100 rounds from an automatic weapon. In the light of recent school shootings this is especially disturbing. Eric Greitens and his senior staff use an app that deletes text messages after they’ve been read, raising concerns among transparency advocates. Greitens received a single $1.975 million "dark money" donation, money that in one day went from a generic nonprofit organization called American Policy Coalition Inc. to a generic federal super PAC called SEALS for Truth to Greitens' campaign fund — a complex paper shuffle that had no apparent purpose but to get around state disclosure rules and legally hide the origin of the money. Greitens this year was fined by state election officials for failing to disclose that his campaign obtained a donor list from The Mission Continues, the nonprofit group that ex-Navy SEAL Greitens founded for returning veterans before he entered politics.Eric Greitens is wrong for Missouri, and should be impeached. Since 2008, there have been no limits on political contributions in Missouri, leading to six- and seven-figure contributions becoming commonplace in some races. This had led to power abuse and fraud. Missouri should not be represented by a man who abuses women or makes violent displays with military grade weapons.Please sign this petition to urge the Missouri House of Representatives to take action.
