If Blumenauer votes for the supplemental, will the peace movement take back their award?

Another important vote is coming up--will Blumenauer screw it up again?
A few months ago, in front of hundreds of his constituents, Rep. Blumenauer made a big deal of signing a pledge to not vote for money for the war in Iraq. Shockingly, this turned out to be a big fat lie. Another vote is coming up, and I think the peace movement should turn up the heat a little. Let's all call the guy, tell him to vote no, and demand that he return the big pledge thing he signed if he doesn't. It would be pretty fun to march into his office, see if we could get it returned. Anyone interested? Maybe 11am the day after the vote?
