    This goes much wider than just the opponents of the Foley Five.  These creeps have raised tons of money for loads of other R candidates too.

    Phyllis Busansky FL-09 has just issued a press release stating in part:

    My opponent Gus Bilirakis has deep and lucrative ties to the ‘Foley Five’ – close to $100,000 to date. Gus Bilirakis needs to break his ties with Speaker Hastert and company. He needs to join me in calling for a full and thorough investigation of the ‘Foley Five’ and in demanding Congressman Reynolds’ resignation.


    Hastert’s PAC gave $10,000 to Bilirakis’ campaign

    Hastert event for Bilirakis expected to raise $50,000

    Bilirakis received $5,000 from Tom Reynolds’ PAC

    Bilirakis’ campaign received $10,000 from Rep. John Boehner’s PAC

    Bilirakis campaign received $1,000 from Rep. John Shimkus’ PAC

    Foley gave $115,000 to NRCC who backs Bilirakis.  The NRCC has made a $21,000 independent expenditure on Bilirakis’ behalf. Bilirakis also has been featured several times on the NRCC’s blog on their website.

    Every Dem should push their opponents to seperate themselves from the foley Five money!

    You can't govern if you can't win.
