Last night, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow did a segment on Mitt Romney as part of her run-up to the GOP presidential debate in New Hampshire. She gave Mother Jones a big shout-out, referring to a story I posted earlier in the day about allegations that Romney may have committed voter fraud last year when he voted in Massachusetts while claiming to live in his son’s basement. News reports and research by another GOP candidate, Fred Karger, suggests that Romney was living in California, or maybe New Hampshire, at the time. Watch the whole clip here:

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
