A Different Kind of Campaign

Last weekend I received an email from the Heidi Mitchell, the executive director of the Committee to Elect House Democrats. This group is the fundraising committee for Democratic state legislators here in New Hampshire.

Let me quote the pertinent section of the message:

"We have two important fundraisers coming up soon, the first of which is our Democratic House Heroes fundraiser at The Barley House. This will be held on April 19th. A list of registered lobbyists is on the Secretary of State's web site . While invitations to this event have gone out, we ask that you take a few moments over the next week and a half to encourage lobbyists you know to attend".

This is ethically indefensible and politically stupid.

This is a year when Democrats have the chance to reclaim the mantle of reform and change. When we engage in the same sort of sleazy vote-selling as Tom DeLay, we lose the moral and the political high ground.

This also underscores the fact that there are some very real differences between those of us running in the 1st district.

Jeb Bradley has pocketed thousands of dollars from an array of lobbyists, and saw nothing wrong with accepting $15,000 from Tom DeLay.

Jim Craig is the chairman of a PAC that sees nothing wrong with wringing campaign cash out of special interest lobbyists.

I'm taking a different course. As I campaign, I will not accept money from PACS, and I won't accept money from registered lobbyists. Will it make my job tougher? Of course it will. But change has to start someplace. When I go to Washington, I won't anyone any favors. That's the very least the people of the 1st district deserve from their representative.
