Hey U.S. citizens who have congressional representation, a request:

Please go vote today! Then next week, call your congressional representatives and tell them the 660,000 people in DC and 3.3 million people in Puerto Rico pay full taxes, are full citizens, yet don't have the congressional representation of the 530,000 people of Wyoming, and maybe systematic disenfranchisement (of a majority African-American and a majority Hispanic area) isn't OK anymore.

Thx in advance,

The disenfranchised.

This is a familiar pattern that commercial con artists use: run up liabilities with one company, then transfer assets to a new company. If they get caught, they simply do it again, and it's legal.
