As Twitchy reported yesterday, progressive groups MoveOn and MayDay hosted a super-awesome 30-second video contest “to wake up America to the crisis of big money in our politics.” It must have been a surprise to the organizers when a video by conservative group American Commitment dominated the voting by a huge margin.

MoveOn and MayDay changed the rules on the fly, pushing back the voting deadline by a day, just enough time for MoveOn to send out an email blast to its members.

As American Commitment president Phil Kerpen noted, that only helped push his group and its video on Tom Steyer — “America’s Biggest Hypocrite” — even further ahead.

MoveOn and MayDay finally had to call it a day, leaving American Commitment the overwhelming winner.
