A Democratic Assembly candidate in Queens is trying to raise money off Mitt Romney's meme-inspiring "binders full of women" comment at last night's debate.
An interested reader passed along the email, sent by Nily Rozic to her supporters.

Last night's debate was the wake-up call we all needed. Across the board, women's issues are under attack. Whether you care about pay equity, better healthcare or even safer streets, we need representatives who get it. And it is clear that our work doesn't stop at the national level. I need your support today.
Women only make up 22% of New York's State Legislature--and we have a real opportunity to win this seat for women. Help reverse that equation.
I am running for State Assembly because I believe that to represent us in Albany right now, the best man for the job...might just be a woman. My opponent has publicly stated "abortion goes against the nature of women" and is looking to privatize our entire education system. Radical ideas like this cannot be tolerated at any level of government.
Help fill that binder. Please consider donating $25, $50, $100 to my campaign online or by mail.
Help me win this election!
