Common Cause has been doing quite a bit of awareness building about the billionaire Koch Bros in recent months but the cool tactic award on this issue goes to our friends at The Other 98%.  Not sure if it will resonate with people under thirtyish  because I feel like this commerical came out when I was really young.  I woudn't be surprised if we see a lot of earned media from this.

 
I didn't think I could still be surprised much by bad behavior in a government body but a visit with a colleague from the Maidan Alliance from Ukraine yesterday changed that.  Check out their video "A Banana Republic Forever?" to see what good government groups like Maidan Alliance have to deal with....we are taking a look about ways in which Common Cause might partner with them.  I think I'll be able to be more constructive once the shock wears off.
