Dear Marriage Supporter,
Desperate! That's what the Mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel, is right now.
Why else would he send out an email to his Chicago machine commanding them to lobby their representatives in favor of same-sex marriage?
Because as of today, he knows they don't have the votes to pass the bill!
Rahm Emanuel is firing up the Democratic Party forces, trying to strong-arm same-sex marriage through the legislature the old Chicago way.
But this time, things are different!
Supporter, as I mentioned last week, the Democratic Party is fraying over the issue of gay marriage. Many of the politicians who represent African-American and Latino constituents are resisting the political pressure brought to bear by the leaders of their party.
In addition, I NEED you to forward this email to your family and friends in Illinois, and encourage THEM to take action as well. If it's easier for you, use the buttons below to share this message on Facebook and Twitter. Or pick up the phone and call them so they can take action right away.
If you have an additional two minutes to invest in defending marriage, look up your Representative's phone number by clicking here, and call their office to let them know that the people of Illinois — and you personally — want their representatives to defend marriage — the only institution that connects children to parents and vice versa.
It's going to take thousands of Illinoisans working together to protect marriage in Illinois. Help spread the word today!
You have made tremendous progress so far! Same-sex marriage was supposed to be a done deal in January… yet here we are in March with a very real chance of preventing this so-called "inevitable" same-sex marriage bill.
Please take action today! I know I can count on you to help. Thank you!
