The Power to the People Committee
Cynthia McKinney for President Weekly Update.

Hello Powerful People:

This special edition is to alert you that we are a third of the way there, towards meeting the Whitney Challenge to raise at least another $2,300 toward the Primary Season Matching Funds Eligibility this week. So far, eleven contributors from nine states, giving an average of $83 each have participated in this challenge since it was announced Sunday night.

We have two more days to raise the next $1,380 to match the challenge. (And we've fixed the thermometer on the contribution form so you can now monitor our progress in real time).

You don't have to give $83 yourself. $5, $25, $100, $250, whatever you can afford; it all helps reach our goal. And it is important that you be invested in this campaign.

As background we reprint below two articles from last week's Campaign Update. Please link to:
and help us triple your contribution. Don't wait, please do so now!

-- Double, No, Triple Your Contribution, This Week --

Mr. Rich Whitney, noted Green Party member and candidate for Governor of Illinois in 2006, proved in his historic campaign two years ago what dedicated political activists can accomplish with their trend setting election results: a 2008 ballot line in Illinois.

Last fall, Rich became an immediate and loyal supporter of our Power To The People Committee, Cynthia McKinney for President. Today his campaign is offering to leverage his campaign surplus by offering a challenge grant to each of you.

If you contribute this week, May 19-26, to Power To The People Committee, Cynthia McKinney for President, Rich's campaign committee has offered to match your contribution, dollar-for-dollar, up to $250. That means if you live in a state other than California, New York, Oregon, Illinois or Texas, (the five states who have reached their $5000 Federal Matching Funds qualifying threshold) you can double your contribution to this campaign right now by going online to

helping us secure this challenge pledge. Or, you may mail your contribution to Power To The People Committee, Cynthia McKiney for President, Post Office Box 311759, Atlanta, GA 31131-1759. your contribution must be postmarked between May 19-26, 2008 to meet the challenge. (Due to contribution limits, his campaign can only match the first $2,300 in qualifying donations).

By helping add your state to the list of twenty states needed to qualify us as eligible for Federal Matching Funds, you help us triple your contribution as well.

Maryland and New Jersey are now in play!
Will your state be next?

Here are new preliminary numbers on our progress through the end of April. Five states have raised enough to qualify us so far:

New York,
and Texas.

Our appreciation as well to these states whose residents have already given $1,000 or more and are on their way towards that goal, including two new states (Maryland and New Jersey) which crested their first $1,000 this past month:

D.C. ($3.3k),
*Florida ($2.2k),
*Massachusettes ($1.8k),
*Maryland ($1.1k),
*Maine ($1.5k),
*Michigan ($2.5k),
*Minnesota ($3.2k),
*New Jersey ($3.1k),
Oklahoma ($1k),
*Washington ($2.7k)
and Wisconsin ($1.6k).

(Unaudited figures current through April 30th, 2008;
* indicates change since last month).

The Campaign will no longer be eligible for Primary Season Matching Funds after the July Convention in Chicago.

So please act now! Help this campaign continue.


Until next week,

C'mon Truthers, support Cynthia McKinney for President. John Kerry woke me up to the left/right dog and pony show. I re-registered to vote for Ron Paul in the Calif primary. I will gladly make the switch and Go Green for McKinney and 9/11 Truth!

If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention.

I'm registering Green!

Cynthia is the only candidate to get my money and vote.

The rest of them are corrupt scum bags.
