How can this be legal?

Dear MoveOn member,

It's Ben and Jerry, the ice cream guys.

People like to ask us about our favorite ice cream flavors (there are a lot of them), but we'd like to turn the tables and ask you a question instead: What issue do you care about most?

Climate change? Racial justice? Economic justice? America's never-ending wars? Whatever it is, chances are it ties back to one root problem: money in politics.

That's why we launched Stamp Stampede, a nationwide, decentralized demonstration, in which people rubber stamp messages protesting money in politics directly on their dollar bills. (Yes, it's totally legal!)

January 21 is the anniversary of the Citizens United decision that opened the floodgates to money in politics, and we're aiming to make it the biggest day of stamping money out of politics ever. If you chip in $15 or more today, we'll send you your own "Stamp Money Out of Politics" stamp that you can use to make your money scream.

Will you join in? Click here to donate $15 or more to MoveOn, and you'll receive a FREE "Stamp Money Out of Politics" self-inking rubber stamp. You'll also be entered to win a full year of free Ben & Jerry's ice cream. (Yes, really!)

Why is it that despite the fact that voters overwhelmingly support Net Neutrality, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) got rid of it?

Why do fossil fuels get subsidized when voters think we should be supporting clean sources of energy, like wind and solar, instead?

How come there never seems to be money available to provide decent public schools for our kids or to invest in public transportation, but the money for corporate tax cuts is unlimited?

We all know why: Because our Congress has been bought by campaign contributions and takes orders from the corporate lobbyists who outnumber members of Congress 23 to 1.1

And the problem has gotten exponentially worse since Citizens United.

Stamp Stampede is a fun and easy way to get our message out virally. Every dollar that's stamped stays in circulation for two and a half years and gets viewed 875 times on average. That's why nearly 3,300 people have already pledged to stamp over 1.4 million bills in the week leading up to the Citizens United anniversary, and together we can make January 21 the biggest day of stamping ever.

Click here to donate $15 or more to MoveOn, and you'll receive a FREE "Stamp Money Out of Politics" self-inking rubber stamp (and be entered to win a full year of free ice cream).

Let's get stamping!

Defacing currency is illegal. However, it can be argued that merely writing (or stamping) a little message on a bill doesn't interfere with the use of it, and doesn't impose a need to withdraw the bill from circulation, so it doesn't really count as "defacing".

I'll bet Jefferson Beauregard Sessions will enforce some minor statute to make it illegal. "Don't make fun of government. What we do is sacred. You're going to jail."
