The day after Sen. Maria Cantwell voted against a telecommunications bill in the Commerce Committee because of concerns about net neutrality, she turned the move into a fundraising pitch.
In an e-mail to supporters today, Cantwell asks people to sign an online petition in favor of net neutrality and makes a pitch to "protect the Internet now."
In the p.s., she reminds people of the "end-of-the-quarter fundraising push" and says, "This issue is a perfect example of why — if we had the majority on the Commerce Committee, we wouldn't have to have this fight. If you can contribute please do it now: https://contribute.cantwell.com."
