Tonight Karl Rove will be the keynote speaker at a fundraiser in downtown Washington for Republican Congressman Jim Gerlach (PA-6th). Gerlach’s election next year will be one of the toughest in the country so you’d think he’d be smart enough to keep his distance from Rove—who betrayed the identity of an undercover CIA operative. But Gerlach is sucking up to the Karl Rove cash cow. We need to draw attention to Gerlach’s failure to put his patriotism before his political ambition.
So, here is the plan. Tonight we’ll gather at 6:15 PM (or a little early) at 1700 Pennsylvania Ave NW for a peaceful protest (signs will be provided). The media is expected to attend and we especially expect media from Gerlach’s hometown to attend. We’ll have a peaceful picket for about 45 minutes with some chants while Rove is upstairs at the fundraiser, the media will get their pictures and footage and then we’ll go home.
WHAT: “Fire Karl Rove
