I'm asking you to support a candidate, Norman Solomon, who spent 40 days in jail. Usually, that's a bad thing. But in some cases, it's a good thing.
Nelson Mandela was arrested on August 5, 1962. He was released on February 10, 1990. Mandela was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993, and he was elected President of South Africa in 1994.
Lech Walesa, the founder of Solidarnosc, was imprisoned in 1981 and 1982. Walesa won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1983, and he was elected President of Poland in 1990.
Norman Solomon has spent only 40 days in jail, so don't expect him to be elected President any time soon. But Solomon can be elected to Congress, if we help.
