Pledge to Restore Integrity and Trust in Congress
See Thursday, October 5, 2006 Star Tribune, bottom page 12, for story.

Wendy Wilde visited Jim Ramstad's Minnetonka office today to invite him to join her in a non-partisan show of leadership by signing a pledge to Restore Integrity and Trust in Congress. The 4 points included in the pledge are:

1.) The immediate resignation of Speaker Dennis Hastert, Representatives Reynolds and Boehner, and any other congressional representatives or staff who had knowledge of Congressman Mark Foley's sexual predatory behavior and failed to disclose it and report it to the proper authorities.

2.) A full criminal investigation by an Independent Counsel of the Foley scandal and the failure to investigate by House leadership and the Page Board.

3.) The adoption of a new policy in the Congress for transparent oversight and higher standards in administration of youth programs such as the Congressional Page and College Intern programs.

4.) The return of higher House ethics standards for investigations and oversight that were weakened on January 4, 2005, when the House of Representatives voted to ease the standards.

On the Air! Radio and TV.
We have gotten some fun and positive response to our radio spot flights running this week! We are also getting an increase in inquiries from people who appear to be newly interested in learning more about our candidate for Congress.

The spots have been airing on the WCCO AM830 morning show from 5–9 am and on select shows on Air America AM950, including Franken (11 am–2 pm) and Minnesota Matters (5 pm–6 pm), and will run Saturday and Sunday on Ring of Fire (5–6 pm).

We have begun hearing from new interested voters, outside the usual active Democratic circles, who are learning about Wendy from the literature, radio ads, lawn signs, and banner brigades! Thank you for helping us raise the funds to raise the voters' awareness in the 3rd CD.
