This explains so much.

Living in Rep. Pelosi’s congressional district, I don’t bother filling out too many natioanl-focused action alerts. I try to focus on ones that go to folks other than her, like this one from People for the American Way demanding the DOJ appoint a special prosecutor to do it’s job and investigate the President illegally wiretapping his political opponents. The entirety of the response from the DOJ?
