Hold Tea Party racist Joe Walsh accountable.

Dear Melissa,

Even for a crazy, unhinged Tea Party Congressman, this is shocking.

Here's what an Illinois CREDO SuperPAC organizer caught Rep. Joe Walsh saying at a Town Hall meeting this week:

"The Democratic Party promises groups of people everything. They want the Hispanic vote, they want Hispanics to be dependent upon government, just like they got African-Americans dependent upon government. That's their game. Jesse Jackson would be out of work if they weren't dependent upon government. There'd be no work for him."

Since we caught him in the act, Rep. Wash's statement has blown up all over the internet1 and in his district.2

This could be Joe Walsh's Macaca moment.3 But we need to keep it building.

Watch the video and chip in $5 to hold Walsh accountable.

Rather than apologizing, or backing off something so openly racist, Walsh doubled down this week telling a Chicago radio station: "All Jesse Jackson is trying to do is to keep African Americans down on some plantation."4

What?!? For Walsh — who relies on a government paycheck, has had multiple tax liens filed against him and who fought his wife in court for almost 10 years over $100,000 he owed in back child support — to criticize anyone about relying on government is comical.

But what's not funny at all are his hateful, racist statements. The fact that a sitting member of Congress would say such things out loud, in 2012, is beyond shocking. And he needs to be held accountable.

This is why we created the CREDO SuperPAC — to capture these moments and make sure they are seen by voters in the district, and people across the country.

Chip in $5 to help defeat Tea Party racist Joe Walsh.

Thanks for helping send the message that this is unacceptable in America.
