Anna Nicole Smith and Paper Ballots - ACTION ALERT

Did I get your attention?  This is really just about the extremely important paper ballot bill in the state legislature.
On Tuesday, we were very lucky to have Pam Haengel speak at our District 47 meeting.  Pam is an inspiration.  In 2000, she was a young mom at home with an infant who became so outraged with the Florida election problems that she decided to do something about it.  That's when the non-partisan Voting Integrity Alliance of Tampa Bay was born.  Pam is now working with activists from around the country to change our voting system so that we know our votes count.  When we asked her what we need to do to assist with the efforts, she wasn't even sure because things were moving so quickly in Tallahassee this week.  As you may know, our new governor, Charlie Crist, supports the paper ballot bill that is before the legislature. (Good for him!)
Now we know how we can help.  Pam sent me the following message late last night.  PLEASE take a few minutes to send this message to our elected representatives.  We need to overwhelm them with emails.  Also, please take the time to send Gov. Crist a word of encouragement and support.  He needs to know we've got his back on this.  Here is his contact info:
Here's Pam's message with specific instructions on what to do:
Concerned voters:
Please send the following e-mail TODAY, Thursday, April 26th, preferably this morning, to all Florida Senators:   Please use this text only.  The key Senate bill on voting systems is scheduled to be voted on TODAY.
Type this in your "Subject" line:
Copy and paste this into the body of the email:
I support Governor Crist’s PAPER BALLOT plan to reform Florida ’s voting systems. Floridians are fed up being a national laughing stock.  Now is the time for the LEGISLATURE to pass a CLEAN BILL – free from political baggage – and IMPLEMENT Governor Crist’s PAPER BALLOT voting system reform – fully effective for the 2008 Presidential election.
The complete list of Senators is below.  Simply highlight the list, copy and paste it into the "To:" line of your e-mail.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
