We're almost two-thirds of the way to our goal of 3,000 contributors for our TPM Muckraking Fund Fundraiser
. So we wanted to make one more push before everyone leaves for the holiday. The funds are going to hiring two staff reporter-bloggers for our new site TPMmuckraker.com
which will be devoted to unearthing, explaining and publicizing the web of public corruption scandals breaking out across Washington today. Along the way we'll try to keep in the TPM punch and edge many of you who've written in have said you want in the new site.
There's so much muck to be raked, it'll be a challenge for the two of them to cover it all. But we'll make sure they burn the midnight oil to bring you all of it.
For those of you who've already contributed, our sincere thanks. You'll be hearing from us shortly.
And to all of you a happy and safe Thanksgiving.
