Petition FedExed to the DNC

Here's the cover letter I attached to the 400+ page petition I just sent off to the DNC.

Democratic National Committee
Attn: Governor Howard Dean and
the Members of the Rules and Bylaws Committee
430 South Capitol Street SE
Washington, D.C. 20003

RE: Michigan and Florida Delegate Controversy

Dear Governor Dean and Members of the Rules and Bylaws Committee:

Beginning in early February, I started a petition to urge Senator Hillary Clinton and the DNC to not seat the Michigan and Florida delegations in the proportion allotted by each state's primary elections. I, and the over 4,500 signatories to the petition, agree with the DNC that it was unfair for both states to move up their primaries and believe that to change the rules in mid-stream would be highly unfair to the candidates and the thousands of people in each state who did not vote because they believed their votes would not count.

The petition has garnered a huge response, with over 4,500 people from all over our great country signing the petition and providing their own narrative view of why they oppose changing the rules at this stage in the game. As you’ll note, the attached petition runs to nearly 400 pages.

I hope you will review and consider our petition and the words of the thousands of people who signed it. We humbly believe that it is important for the DNC to consider the opinions of the everyday Americans who took the time out of their busy lives to both sign the petition and write down their personal views about this profoundly important decision.

Thank you very much for your time and attention to this matter. We look forward to a strong Democratic victory in November!
