Get Peace on the Ballotathon...EMERGENCY!! EMERGENCY!!

The percentage of "valid" signatures that the SF Department of Elections are allowing is getting lower and lower as we get closer to our goal.

We turned in 1932 on Monday and they invalidated 49% of the signatures.

We turned in 425 yesterday and they invalidated 78% of them. The thing about that, is that I personally checked every signature in that batch, and I came up with a 55-60 percent valid rate.

We figure at this rate, we need to turn in 3000 by tomorrow at 5pm.

HELP! HELP! HELP! We have 24 hours......

The disenfranchisement of the homeless population here in SF is criminal and this is obviously the population that is strongly in support of my campaign because they are the ones that have been screwed over the most by this (cyst)em and they know the people in power are only there to preserve their power, not help the people who need to be helped.

Please forward this email to everyone that you know....and every media outlet that you know.

We are going to do it because we are not going to let down the thousands of people who support our campaign and know that it is urgent to get the people's voice on the ballot and in Congress!

Our office will be open until we get the 3,000.
