You've heard rumors. Cynthia McKinney does indeed seek the Green Party nomination for President of the USA. Probably you already know about Cynthia; if you want to learn more, and read the latest, check out She has filed on the Green Party ballot line in several states already, including Illinois and Arkansas, and has registered as a Green in California, her new home state. She's already making appearances around the country for local Green parties and their candidates -- including visits to South Carolina, Maine, and New York before last week's elections.

Cynthia is actively fundraising. With your help, Cynthia McKinney can qualify as a candidate eligible for Federal matching campaign funds. To do so, she must certify that she has met the "threshold requirement" for eligibility by raising at least $5,000 in each of at least 20 states. (While any contribution up to $2,300 per donor is welcome in support of this campaign, only the first $250 of each individual contribution counts toward that total. Grassroots Democracy.)

Cynthia also wants to run in all 51 states and the District of Columbia, so her Houston event will also raise funds for GPTX ballot access, in the very difficult state of Texas.

Also, keep your ear to the ground about the GPTX Silent Auction, culminating in Austin, December 5, with Cynthia McKinney's visit there.

PS, Here are Don Cook's directions: "From the Gulf Freeway, go south on Scott St., a little more than a mile to Cleburne St. (Opposite the University of Houston stadium). Turn right on Cleburne (west) and proceed 5 or 6 blocks to Tierwester St. After crossing Tierwester, turn left into the first parking lot. Park there. The Library is off the southwest corner of the parking lot." Call him for help at 713-705-5594
