Adelson recently donated $X million of his personal fortune to a

super PAC supporting Mitt Romney's campaign, making him the biggest single

donor to a candidate-specific super PAC and biggest donor to outside

spending groups in the history of the United States.

Three upsetting things I want to say about this before I tell you that we

shouldn't get upset:

-- He's said that he's willing to go as high as $X million to defeat

Barack Obama.

-- This kind of money could change the outcome of an election.

-- For Adelson, who's worth more than $X billion, this

donation is about the equivalent of $X to a middle-class family.

You can fight it.



This isn't the way our country should work. Electing someone president of

the United States should be a decision that we make as a nation. The

outcome shouldn't be affected by one, or even several, extraordinarily

wealthy Adelson knows this is wrong, too:

"I'm against very wealthy people attempting to or influencing elections,"

he said. "But as long as it's doable I'm going to do it."

Unless we stop him. Because we absolutely can stop him.

We have more supporters on the ground, more energy and more voices. We just

need to make sure that everyone gets involved, no one's left behind, and we

don't let this election -- or any election across the country -- come down

to just a few wealthy guys.

Can you donate $X or more today to support President Obama and Democrats?

For us, it's not about the amount of your donation. Because when you

donate, you'll be joined by thousands of other Democrats, pitching in what

they can when they can.

And that's how we'll win.

And Adelson will still be able to buy us all a drink.

Thanks,

Hildy
