Louisiana Suing MoveOn Over Jindal Billboard

Just got this email:
Breaking news: The state of Louisiana is suing MoveOn.org in federal court. They're trying to force us to take down a billboard that calls out Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal—an aspiring presidential candidate—for denying health care to 242,000 people. After carefully discussing the matter with our lawyers, we've made a decision:  

We're leaving our billboard up—even if we have to take this fight all the way to the Supreme Court. This lawsuit is unprecedented in MoveOn's sixteen-year history. And it will take all of us to respond. Normally, we ask for folks to donate when they can—and we know that not everyone can give every time.

But today, we're urgently asking all MoveOn members to step up to the plate and help with a monthly contribution starting now. Can you donate as little as $5 a month—or as much as you can afford—to make sure MoveOn has the resources we need to defend ourselves in court and keep our work going?
