Burner is a congressional candidate from Washington state who will be a great member of Congress. She's also the candidate who came up with the Responsible Plan to End the War in Iraq.
She lost her home this week in a fire. Her family made it out of the house alive because their five-year-old son woke them up and got them out. This is a great story to come out of a tragedy, but the good news is that no one was hurt and that the Netroots has rallied to help her out so she can recover and not lose her ability to raise funds to stay competitive in her race.
If you can, help her out. You can also read a lot more on this story:
