Twice as many faxes per day are being copied to me today than
earlier! They protest Sen. Clinton's uncaring attitude towards Asian Ams
Our campaign spreads fast! Imagine how wide-spread it'll be, a
month from today.
People are asking,
"If Hillary Clinton doesn't have the integrity to stand up for America's
core value -- equal opportunity for all, why is she running for President?"
People are beginning to ask,
"Why are some of our Asian Am. elected officials endorsing her? She has
taken the most donations from our community, caused the worst image
problem for us, given us back nothing but sweet words, yet she has the
most Asian American politicians endorsing her. Do Asian Am. elected
officials understand accountability? "
The Clinton campaign has contacted 80-20 concerning possibly
answering all yeses, but with footnotes, since our "Call To Action" has
started. However, the fact is that we've NOT gotten her signed reply. It
is still her sweet words, signifying nothing.
Keep forwarding our earlier "Call To Action," shown below, to your
friends & relatives.

Call To Action -- Write to Sen. Clinton's campaign
In 2004, ALL presidential candidates answered 80-20's question-
naire with ALL yeses except for Al Sharpton & George Bush.
However, this year, only Senators Biden, Dodd and Gravel have replied
with all yeses. The Iowa Caucus is coming up on Jan. 3. We must hustle
and put on pressure. That is where YOU come in, because 80-20 is
only as strong as your are.
Just as United Auto Worker targeted General Motors to negotiate
a labor contract first, 80-20 will focus on Sen. Clinton first.
To contact 12 other remaining candidates now will require too
much of your time without being effective.
Fax a strong message to Sen. Clinton via 703-962-8600 ! Copy me in,
if you like via email@example.com or 1-800 877-1676 -fax. Use your own
words. Please include the following central message:
Dear Senator Clinton:
Please answer 80-20's questionnaire with all yeses.
Otherwise, I'll ask all my friends and relatives to vote
against you in Iowa, New Hampshire & the California
Address (city & state):
Title (optional, specify "for ID purposes only").
We chose to focus on Hillary's campaign for 4 good reasons.
1) She has raised the most money from our community while indirectly,
at least, caused Asian Ams the worst image problems. In 2007, it was
Norman Hsu and Chinatown, NY. In 1996, it was John Huang, Johnny
Chung, Charlie Trie, Yogesh K. Gandhi, Robert S. Lee and Pauline
Kanchanalak. Indeed, they all got in trouble with the law, because
they raised money for her.
2) She has the most Asian Am. elected officials endorsing her. Neverthe-
less, when "nearly all co-chairs contacted the campaign about the (80-
20) questionnaire" (the above is an exact quote from the Hillary
campaign), she didn't comply by replying satisfactorily. Support
should be a two way street. Sen. Clinton seems to take and take from
3) Hillary wants to break the gender glass ceiling by asking us to elect her
as President. However, she is not willing to help Asian Ams break
the glass ceiling at the workplace for the management level. What
is good for the goose should be good for the gander.
4) According to an Asian Am. elected official, the Hillary campaign thinks
she already has Asian Am. support. Does the campaign think all
Asian Ams are suckers like Norman Hsu and John Huang?
Is Sen. Clinton just using Asian Ams.? She had used Asian Ams to
fundraise for her and to endorse her. All she is willing to give back to
us is her sweet words signifying nothing? Does she have the courage to
stand up for America's core value -- equal opportunity?
Her attitude towards Asian Ams is an outrage. Tell her that you
will not be used by her. We will get our equal opportunity, when
we show some backbone. Counting on you!

80-20 is highly political but truly NON-partisan. It is equally tough
on both Democrats and Republicans when they fail to share our concern
about achieving equal opportunity.
