No Trying To Buy Influence Here!

October 19, 2015

I hear the words of South Park’s Police Officer Barbrady. ” Okay move along, move along people, there’s nothing to see here”!

This is not how the political system should be allowed to operate.  It happens everyday on both sides of the aisle, and it is corrupting and undermining the way he evaluate policy and create legislation.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy received a windfall of six-figure checks from CEOs, Wall Street investors and other high-dollar GOP donors during the short window he was the front-runner to be the next House speaker. 

The California Republican’s lucrative joint fundraising committee, known as the McCarthy Victory Fund, collected $3 million in the fundraising quarter that began July 1 and ended on Sept. 30.

Much of the third-quarter money came in the form of checks in the $100,000 and $200,000 range that flowed in during the short window between Ohio Republican John A. Boehner’s Sept. 25 announcement that he would step down as speaker and McCarthy’s surprise Oct. 8 news he would not run to replace Boehner, as expected. McCarthy’s windfall was first reported in Political MoneyLine.
