I'd like to take credit for this, but these people don't listen to me.
From my email in-box:

Today, after six amazing months of powerful grassroots organizing, Democracy for America and MoveOn are announcing the suspension of our Run Warren Run campaign, effective this Monday, June 8, following the delivery of our petition urging Sen. Elizabeth Warren to run for president.
While we did not achieve our primary goal before suspending Run Warren Run, the good news is that -- as one headline put it -- "Elizabeth Warren may not be running, but she’s in the 2016 race anyway."
This was not an easy decision to make...
Ilya Sheyman, MoveOn.org Political ActionHey! Maybe it's not too late to repurpose their hustlebuck machinery slightly and start demanding that Elizabeth Warren give up her vital seat in the Senate in a futile run for the president of FIFA!
Dear MoveOn member,
Last December, MoveOn members set out to do two things when we launched our Run Warren Run campaign: illuminate and broaden the path for Senator Elizabeth Warren to run for president in 2016, should she decide to do so; and build a grassroots movement to fight alongside her.
Six months after starting this journey, we've helped demonstrate the tremendous base of grassroots support and energy—not just for Elizabeth Warren, but for her vision of a democracy restored and an economy that works for everyone.
Now, we're shifting our focus to support that vision...
Also send us $3!
These people raised a shit-ton of money by stalking Elizabeth Warren long after she made it 100% clear that she wanted them to leave her the fuck alone.
I wonder where all that money went? I know for sure that not a nickel of it ever found it's way into one of my tin-cup fundraisers.
Ah well, another political mystery to which I will never be privy.
