Nearly half of the money raised by newly-minted Congressman Glenn Nye has come from Political Action Committees, according to the Virginian-Pilot.
Three months into office, and already sending out full-color taxpayer funded “information” pieces that look like campaign mail, something that generated SCREAMS from the Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself), and he’s swimming in special-interest fundraising.
The press calls someone kowtowing to special interests for money in the first months in office as “gearing up for a tough re-election battle,” which I think almost qualifies the article as an in-kind contribution. Take note, Nye Treasurer.
Our “hope and change” Congressman went to Washington, and while people back home are struggling making ends meet, he’s collecting the big PAC checks.
But he’s working hard for us, right? He better be. On tax day, I just paid for him to send me more mail telling me so.
