Progressive Insurance..Liberals

Here is an email I opened this morning thought I would share with you guys about the man behind progressive insurance. I did a quick search and did not see it on here yet. Some of you may care where your sending your money. According to snopes it is True.
Here is a link Progressive Insurance - Peter Lewis Donations
