SOS Project Endores Mauro

“A modest political investment in electing clean candidates to the key Secretary of State offices is an efficient way to protect the election in 2008.”

That’s the pitch at a website which has endorsed SoS candidates in seven states, including Iowa. They even claim to have raised over $8000 for Iowa’s candidate, Democrat Mike Mauro of Des Moines. That figure is up more than $1000 since I first saw the website a week ago, so business is pretty brisk, I’d say. Mauro is third highest beneficiary of their fundraising.

Here’s a bit from their endorsement of Mauro:

Mauro believes a photo ID requirement would make it harder for some citizens to vote and says that “life circumstance should not make a person a disenfranchised voter.” Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack has been a vocal supporter of Mauro’s candidacy, praising Mauro’s efforts to simplify the registration process and make voting more accessible. Mauro supports a voter verified paper trail.

The website is a project of Democratic activist James Rucker of California. The endorsed candidates are all Democrats, but the project is not authorized by any candidate.
