Don't let AARP exlude Mike Gravel!
The AARP has unfairly decided to exclude Mike Gravel from it's presidential forum on Sept 20 in Davenport, Iowa. The AARP offered up a single, arbitrary criterion: He doesn%u2019t rent a campaign office in Iowa. According to Gravel's Official Website's forum, he now has a full time campaign office in Iowa. They should be willing to invite him. Sign PetitionSign Petition
As a senior citizen, Mike understands the concerns of elder Americans. As someone not beholden to the special interests, he is able to fight for seniors against the drug companies.
Earlier this summer the Human Rights Campaign concocted a similarly arbitrary pretext for excluding Mike from their presidential forum on gay issues. After a massive public outcry the HRC backed down and invited him. The result: Mike used the forum to advance the discussion about gay rights and earned the praise of numerous LGBT community leaders.
We call upon everyone who wants to hear a full discussion about the issues that affect older Americans to please contact the AARP and demand that they include Mike%u2019s voice.
Lets get him back in! Please sign!
