Cindy Sheehan's on the ballot!

"Peace Mom" who camped out in a ditch in front of Bush's ranch is on the ballot as an independent in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's district in San Francisco.
When I last wrote we turned in over 13,000 signatures, but 41% or so were invalidated (we had paid petitioners, and many of the signatures were no good). But we continued to gather signatures, and today we have been told by the elections department we are officially on the ballot. Big party over at Cindy's campaign headquarters. It's time to hold Nancy Pelosi's feet to the fire and force her to debate Cindy, and finally force her to face her constituents about why she continues to put war funding on the table, while keeping real impeachment hearings off the table.
