254 County Courthouses. One affidavit. And YOU.
David is sprinting to the finish line on his 254-county Whistlestop Tour; this week he'll visit Fredericksburg (Gillespie) and Georgetown (Williamson) and next week he'll be at the courthouses in Fort Worth, Dallas, Houston, San Antonio and Austin, completing the tour.
Greg Abbott has $7 million bucks and all of the corruption it can buy. David Van Os has the truth and the power of the people.
Yes, I'm looking at you.
From the time he began his campaign to take back the Attorney General's office from the oil companies and the insurance companies and the banks and the utility companies and all of the other corporate whores infesting it, David has used a simple message and distributed it in a simple way:
"I will fight for economic and social justice for all Texans, and I will fight the powers that be until Hell freezes over. And then I'll fight 'em on the ice."
That message is not delivered in fancy TV commercials or slick mailers, but in the power of the spoken word, from the steps of every single county courthouse in the state.
And then it goes on file as a sworn affidavit, entered into the public record.
This campaign needs just a little help from you to get to the finish line, and it's not just about money.
The Traditional Media is starting to pay attention to this race. The blogosphere has revealed Greg Abbott as a naked partisan hack, long ago sold out to the highest bidder. The choice is clear: more corporate control of our state's leaders, more DeLay-inspired thuggery by the GOP, or a return to government of, by, and for the people.
David will rely on the will of the people of Texas -- that would be YOU, and your friends, and a few people you know who rarely, if ever, vote -- to notice that the stench of corruption from the Republicans in Washington, in Austin and even of Greg Abbott himself is so foul that it MUST be cleaned out.
Please make plans to attend one of these final Courthouse appearances to support this campaign. Please print, copy, and distribute a few flyers about the Courthouse Whistlestop at your clubs and events. Most importantly, invite an Independent, a non-voter, and even an irritated Republican or two to come with you.
To the Courthouse Whistlestop, and to the polling place a few days later.

On November 7 -- or beginning October 23 at early voting locations near you -- cast your vote for David, along with a few of those friends and acquaintances you took to the polling place with you.
And then just stand back and watch as he gets busy cleaning up the heaping mounds of elephant shit in Austin.
