Stock Photo Women Love Conservative Politicians!

On Tuesday afternoon, I noted that the National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB) had endorsed Todd “Legitimate Rape” Akin while at the same time promoting its “PowHER” campaign, an effort aimed at getting women to join the conservative-aligned business group. Apparently the group really doesn’t have many female members, because all the lady entrepreneurs featured on its website are from stock images.

THANK YOU.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
