Email to replying candidates

To those candidates who replied to me a second time, I sent the below form of email:

Subj: Re: Campaign question for you about Gulf of Mexico oil catastrophe:

Dear _________,

Thank you for the below second reply you have sent to me on this subject.

The subject is only a current example, very much in the national spotlight, of the basic campaign issue I am interested in, to wit, I think plaintiffs' lawyers impede the nation's economic recovery and have other deleterious consequences, including that they undermine business ethics, stand in the way of sensible medical malpractice reform to lower health care costs, and frequently make a travesty of justice.

I have offered to do email campaigning (and website posting) on your behalf if you wanted to make legal reform a campaign issue.

If you are interested, please check out the below links about the oil disaster and plaintiffs' lawyers. The first two links are postings on The Times-Picayune that are for Anthony Gentile, the Libertarian candidate for Senator in Louisiana. The other links are postings I have done in my own name on Alabama newspaper websites (where I live) and also on websites outside Alabama.

Thank you.

I continue to offer to do email campaigning and website postings for your campaign if this is an issue that you want to make a campaign issue for yourself. Please contact me if you desire for me to do this.

Thank you.
