MoveOn members delivered more than 325,000 petition signatures and more than 30,000 questions and comments for bank CEOs appearing before the House Financial Services Committee on 2/11/2009.

Several representatives, including Reps. Cleaver, Ellison and Grayson read their questions in the hearing. And Rachel Maddow featured MoveOn members' questions on her show that night.
