Ms. Coakley Goes To Washington (To Get Money From Lobbyists)

Scott Brown's Money Bomb yesterday raised over $1.3 million in 24 hours, mostly in small donations. Consistent with his theme that this is the People's seat, not the Kennedy or Democrats' seat, Brown sought support from the people who feel shut out of the political process.

Today, Martha Coakley goes to Washington to get hundreds of thousands of dollars from lobbyists and consummate Washington insiders, like Jamie Gorelick. I have previously posted the invitation and guest list. There will be 17 lobbyists at the fundraiser, presenting bundled contributions, 15 of whom are connected to the health care industry players who cut special deals as a quid pro quo for supporting Obamacare..

If you want more of the same, send Ms. Coakley to Washington on January 19.

  1. I am not able to do the phone bank, & do not not know 1 person personally in MA, but I did send him some mush need funds from South Dakota!

    The country needs this mans in the US Senate!

    Get out there folks and do what you can with all the donations that have come in from across the country!

  2. Sir, you rock. You and you alone succeeded in getting me to Twitter, everso skittishly. I'm ashamed yet earnest ; )

    The Coakley fundraising invite pretty much tells the whole story of this race on one 5 x 7 card, doesn't it.

  3. I found his one-day moneyboomb total astounding; do you know if this is some sort of record? It was ALL grassroots, too, none of us are being paid (like the union guys who were paid $50.00 to hold Croakley signs). We all know what Scott Brown means not only to our Commonwealth but to our country and are proud to help him in any way we can. Surely, that's a record of some sort?
