Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month. Our show is special because we make it our priority to go where the silence is. We put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the stories of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We do all of this with just a fraction of the budget and staff of a commercial news show. We do it without ads, corporate sponsorship or government funding. How is this possible? Only with your support. Today a generous funder will match your donation 2 to 1. That means when you give $15 today, your donation will be worth $45. So, if you've been waiting to make your contribution to Democracy Now!, today is your day. It takes just a couple of minutes to help make sure Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else.

Last week, the national office of Citizen Action closed. It was one of the largest liberal grassroots groups and has become the first victim of political and union fund raising investigations that have already damaged the credibility of the Democratic National Committee and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Union.

Guest:

  • Sandy Buchanon, Executive Director of Ohio Citizen Action, one of the state organizations that seceded from national Citizen Action one year ago.
