Subject: Tell Duke Energy: Take a stand against corporate funding of voter suppression
For years, the right wing has been trying to stop people of color, young people, and seniors from voting in order to help Republicans [sic] get elected -- and now some of America's biggest companies like Duke Energy are helping them do it.
Duke has helped pass discriminatory voter ID legislation by funding a rightwing policy group called the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). Voter ID bills linked to ALEC have already passed in seven states, and similar voter ID bills have been introduced in 27 other states.
Tell Duke Energy to stop funding ALEC and its attempt to disenfranchise millions of voters. Click the link below to join me in signing this petition.
And if you are really feeling ornery, you can copy and paste this into the comments section:
- Providing gas and electricity services to Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky. Includes information for consumers, employees and corporate clients.
Looks like another reason to use eminent domain on our energy production and infrastructure.
