Hour by hour, it seems like there’s more muck to be raked down in DC. So thanks to everyone who’s contributed so far to our TPM Muckraker Fund Fundraiser. We’ve had 1372 readers contribute so far. And we’re trying to get to 1500 by the end of the evening. Join us.
As I’ve said before, this is for a new TPM blog dedicated to wall-to-wall coverage of the various threads of public corruption, self-dealing and sundry shenanigans afflicting Washington today — Abramoff, Safavian, Reed, Norquist, the Duke, DeLay, Pombo, Ney, Burns. Ahh, the list goes on and on. Specifically, we’re raisng funds for salaries for one and hopefully two full-time reporter bloggers who will lead up the new site.
More research, more posts, more bringing the whole story together for you everyday.
Important Note: As we noted earlier, a relatively small number of readers have tried to contribute through our paypal link and to get repeated error messages. We’ve set up a special page which provides solutions which should help most readers solve this error message problem.
