Conservative group American Commitment wins MoveOn contest in a landslide

, , , , ,

As Twitchy reported yesterday, progressive groups MoveOn and MayDay hosted a super-awesome 30-second video contest “to wake up America to the crisis of big money in our politics.” It must have been a surprise to the organizers when a video by conservative group American Commitment dominated the voting by a huge margin.

MoveOn and MayDay changed the rules on the fly, pushing back the voting deadline by a day, just enough time for MoveOn to send out an email blast to its members.

LOL. MoveOn blast email for their emergency 24-hour extension to beat "One important note"

As American Commitment president Phil Kerpen noted, that only helped push his group and its video on Tom Steyer — “America’s Biggest Hypocrite” — even further ahead.

MoveOn and MayDay finally had to call it a day, leaving American Commitment the overwhelming winner.

Can't wait for "pro-democracy" celebrity liberals to explain why the people's overwhelming favorite is not the winner.

The extra day of voting and blasting the vaunted MoveOn email list only got MORE votes.

FINAL 7590 Second place 364

Delay may have had more to do with burying our landslide win on a Friday night than thinking MoveOn blast email would do anything.

With @kerpen getting 7590 votes to 2899 for all others combined in @MAYDAYUS & @MoveOn's contest, we'll see their commitment to democracy.
