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.
