Ken Aden, a former Staff Sergeant in the 82nd Airborne, is running for Congress in Arkansas' insanely red 3rd District. Last weekend, his campaign manager came home to find his cat brutally hacked to death, with the word "LIBERAL" scrawled across the remains.
When I found out about this via Betsy's post on dKos, I was horrified. I hadn't planned any discretionary spending so I could get my own place after being promoted at work, but if anything ever calls for an exception this is it. And since we have a claim to Arden of sorts since he was in the 82nd Airborne, I figured we ought to help him. Let's let Ken know that the Tar Heel State--and the rest of the nation--is behind him.
