Who's Pockets is Steve Austria In?
Most concerning is donations from the "Rely on your beliefs PAC" that is best known for having Enron as a past contributor and the Tigua Tribe who gave to the PAC as a favor to Jack Abramoff to get approval for a casino. Austria mentions ethics on his web site and this is the company he keeps.
Within the PACs and individual contributors are many banks and investment companies, including Citigroup, Huntington and Goldman Sachs. At a time of banks leading us into the current mortgage crises and bank failures, do we really want a congressmen tied so closely to that industry?
A right wing blogger actually tried to make the attempt today to imply that contributions to Sharen Neuhardt's campaign were somehow tainted because some came from out of the district, when looking at the truth one finds that Austria's campaign is funded mostly by right wing republican PACS and Washington Lobbyists.
Americans are tired of corporate owned politicians thus why Steve Austria is a bad choice for the 7th district.
