Update on GoFundMe Campaign to Buy Pat Toomey’s Vote: Success!

Diane Ravitch's blog

A teacher in Pennsylvania named Kate Fritz created the GoFundMe campaign to buy Senator Pat Toomey’s vote, hoping she could persuade him to vote NO on DeVos by raising as much money as DeVos has given him ($55,800). Tonight her campaign was featured on the Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC.


Kate has nearly met her goal (although she raised it to $60,100, probably after discovering another DeVos PAC).

In two days, 3380 people have donated $55,655.

Suppose Kate raises $70,000? Will DeVos match it? Will Toomey switch his vote?

More important, should we crowdsource the purchase The votes of other senators? Would we get into a bidding war with the DeVos family?
