Here we go again another inapporiate fundraiser

Well it seems that no one learned anything from the uproar about having fund raisers for non-Lehigh valley candidates ( Lois and Patrick Murphy) last year. I got this lovely little email tonight from the Lehigh county Democratic Committee
URGENT! Support Latino candidate
Maria Quiñones-Sánchez
Democratic Candidate for Philadelphia City Council

At the home of Sam Bennett and Martin Estrada

It seems now that Philadelphia and it's suburbs doesn't just expect us to fund their congressional elections now we have to fund their local elections too. I mean has the party just done such a good job fund raising for our own candidates that we now have extra time to fundraise for Philadelphia. Well if that's true congratulations, but based on past experience I highly doubt it.

Where is the fund raiser for our candidates? Hum? Isn't that the county committee's job first to support our candidates. I know the party failed to fill all the slots but we still have our own candidates that need money to run. It is shameful that we aren't taking care of our own. Beyond that is it really an appropriate use of the county committee email to advertise a fund raiser for a candidate none of us can even for for? There is a limited supply of campaign dollars in Lehigh county and the Lehigh valley to start with should we really be sending more of them out of the area?!

  • having fundraised for local candidates by calling people who live in Philly, I have no problem with it. Gotta give to get.
