    want to hear the REAL story about  BIG money in politics since Citizen’s United?? Here it is, including  pictures,  that tell quite  a story:

    http://www.opensecrets.org/news/2012/10/shadow-moneys-top-10-candidates.html

    In a nut shell:  nearly ALL of the BIG money comes from  american crossroads and crosssroads GPS  ($85 +million),  in addition to the US Chamber And almost all of it had been used to OPPOSE   D candidates.   It’s really quite stunning to see  in easy to read “pictures” /graghs— where and how the money is being spent.  KING/Summers race is in the top 10 “contest ”

    Pingree doesn’t  even get a mention and is penney- ante in comparison!!!

      Except for almost ALL of Pingree’s money comes from Mr Pingree laundered through his hundreds of investment firms and companies.  Look at the top 10 donations to her campaign.  He has a tie in some way financially to the companies.

         I would have thought you’d have learned over at PPH that it’s pointless the argue with prettyfoolish. She/he’s one of the serial liars, name callers that caused the policy at PPH to be changed. Hopefully he/ she won’t cause the same problems here.

    And the Rs and their backers (ALEC, US CofC,etc.) keep money out of politics?  I have a bridge AND a swamp for sale.

      I have to agree with you there.  Using politcal money to complain about political money.

    pingree,is a wacky as they come. this woman is everything that is wrong in politics. Her billionaire husband, sussman ,is dumping tons of money into the democratic party in a desperate attempt to get the dems control of this state again. The very last thing this state needs is to turn over control of this state over to the very people who screwed it up in the first place.

    Laughable.  No historical knowledge of American politics, or politics in general for that matter.
