PLEASE SEE THIS VIDEO FOR AN INTRODUCTION:
PLEASE ACT RIGHT AWAY - WEDNESDAY IS THE DAY - THEN FOLLOW THIS BILL TO IT'S COMPLETION.
This Action is - in brief - about cutting down on corruption, wrong-using of using money for "replacement Senators" who were NOT chosen "by the people". Although Sen. Feingold's state already has precautions in place, many states do not. This is a call for a National Amendment. ALSO be sure to see the video here with Feingold: Restoring the Rule of Law!

Senator Russ Feingold says:
This is a positive development, but we still have some work to do: convincing legislators to support the amendment. That's why I need your help. My amendment gives the power of directly electing U.S. senators when a vacancy arises to the people of each state. I'm asking you to sign on as a citizen co-sponsor, adding your voice in support of what I hope will become the 28th Amendment.Help me build support for the 28th Amendment - Add your name as a Citizen Co-Sponsor today!Here in Wisconsin, where "Fighting" Bob La Follette led the charge to amend the Constitution for direct election of senators, we've always had a law on the books requiring a special election when a vacancy arises. And in the House, special elections are a constitutional requirement.
The 28th Amendment would take the power out of the hands of one, and give it to the American people. Help me build support for the 28th Amendment - Add your name as a Citizen Co-Sponsor today! I look forward to tomorrow's unprecedented hearing. It's the next step in a lengthy, but worthwhile effort. Thank you so much for your help on this. I'll be sure to keep you updated on our progress.
