From Joan Claybrook, Public Citizen President: George W. Bush's plummeting poll numbers, combined with numerous scandals involving key members of Congress, have Bush and his cronies running scared. They will attempt to jam through as many pay-offs to special interests as they can between now and the 2006 mid-term elections, and lobbyists will return the favors by making huge campaign contributions to try to keep them in power. We need your support to continue fighting against this corruption. Give generously to Public Citizen now.
