Who Does reichart Represent?
The 5/30 King County Journal has a generally positive article on dave reichart’s (R-Wa, 8th District) first five months in office and notes:
He has raised more than $250,000 in contributions from special interest groups, according to the online PoliticalMoneyLine — the most of anyone in the state’s congressional delegation.
But he has lost at least one check because of a particular vote he took, one that he wouldn’t specify. In his mind, no strings are attached to the cash needed to run a winning campaign.
Or so he says.
If reichart is going to truely represent the people of his district then he should restrict his fund raising to people in the district. As should the other representatives and senators.
