The Democratic activist and voter education group MoveOn.org, apparently starved of donations and in need of a quick $400,000, is stepping up its fundraising.
Just two days after it E-mailed supporters that it might have to shut down, the group's executive director dispatched another E-mail titled "Disappearing MoveOn?"
Justin Ruben pasted in a plea above the original E-mail, which Whispers reported on Tuesday.
He simply wrote:
"Hi — I wanted to make sure you saw this email in the midst of holiday craziness. We could really use your help!"
