I will no longer donate via ActBlue due to inappropriate recurring donations. Candidates hate this. Often they don't offer an alternative.

Cindy - I hope you will report back on ActBlue. They are not good (there are articles about that). They are not the Democrats (they are a private company)(not a nonprofit?). They take a cut of the donation, they collect more information than is required by the Feds (esp. on small donations), and they share it as I recall. Shady business practices as you showed us tonight. The alternative, mailing a check directly to the candidate, is still the better option.
