Dear MoveOn member,
I know we've been in touch a lot this week, but we need your help making one more important decision. Who should MoveOn endorse in New York's U.S. Senate race?
... Voting for the MoveOn endorsement for U.S. Senate in New York starts now and is underway until 11:00 AM tomorrow, September 1.

It's a good step that MoveOn seems to be responding to widespread feeling that it isn't democratic in its decisions. But this is transparently rigged against Tasini, presumably to produce a pro- Hillary vote.
1) with no prior announcement, and on the beginning of a holiday weekend, you throw this major decision at us.
2) you give us less than 24 hours.
Come on, guys, this is ridiculous. Do it again, and do it right.
