Raising Money

Candidates raise money so they can communicate with constituents. It is supposed to enhance our democracy. Honorable candidates like Pete Ashdown understand that the need to communicate should drive the need for money. Senator Orrin Hatch sees it differently. I don't know what is more disturbing, that Senator Hatch doesn't campaign and instead uses money raised to enrich personal friends and hoard for himself or that he is so brazen about it, knowing that in the end he can just say "what are you going to do? Vote for a Democrat?" Utah, show Senator Hatch that you are not his to push around. That you are not his blank check. Show him you have your self- respect and Vote for a man with real honor.
