Help Me Send Potato Heads To Congress!

Last edited Sun Feb 28, 2021, 06:35 AM - Edit history (2)

I sent Sen. Lisa Murkowski a Mr. Potato Head Little Taters Princess Spudette, from Amazon as a gift, with a note to 'please vote YES on the Equality Act!' Cost me less than $15; it arrives next Wed. March 3. I've also sent a note to Wonkette, and even Rep. Marie Newman (proud mom of trans daughter) putting this idea out there.

I encourage everyone to do likewise. Send a Potato Head to a Senate Republican right now! Tell your friends. Flood Congress with Potato Heads in support of the Equality Act! Extra points for sending girl-identified taters with the "Mr." logo!

I don't have Facebook or Twitter, so if you'd give this idea a push for me, the optics on this would be awesome.

The waiting is over. The time is now. Here's a list to get you started:[link:https://contactsenators.com/party.php?party=republican|]

Let's get into some good trouble together.

Trans Lives Matter!

Thank you.

Here in CA, we don't own any R Senators (woot!)

Since the Equality Act has already passed the House, it's up to the Senate now.

Hasbro has a "Mr." tater as Bo Peep - would that do?
