Being a business theatre producer has allowed Brian the opportunity to meet and work with some very fascinating people from a variety of backgrounds which, in turn, has helped shape his knowledge and his opinions. His blog will not always be political, it will be about a lifetime of subjects, and nothing is off limits. “Few people have original thoughts, we are shaped by the people we know and meet” he says.

Follow the Money

If you believe everything Gary Peters says about Rocky Raczkowski, I have some prime ocean front land for sale at a bargain price in Nebraska!

If you watch any crime shows on television, you hear the line all the time, "Follow the Money!"

In politics it is called PAC money, short for Political Action Committees. These committees are set up to circumvent the laws, yes, I know they are perfectly legal, to avoid the appearance on any impropriety.

Rocky raised a total of $45,200, according to filings of the latest campaign finance reports with the Federal Election Commission. Special interests is another name for PACs.

On the other side of the SPECIAL INTEREST financing is Gary Peters. He has raised $1.13 million from PACs, including PAC called the Leadership PAC, a Nancy Pelosi controlled PAC. He has received over $66,000 from insurance PAC, $65,000 from Industrial Union PACs, and another $56,500 from Building Trades Union. Lawyers and Law Firms are among Gary Peters largest contributors to the tune of $306,473, according to today's Oakland Press article. Follow the Money.

Rocky has raised money from PACs as well. He received $3,500 from Iraq Veterans for Congress PAC, $2,000 from Republican Member Senate Fund PAC. I am sure they have a hidden agenda, much like insurance companies and unions. I could list all of Rocky's little donors but it doesn't amount to a hill of beans.

Follow the money. All you have to do is "Follow the Money" and you will find out who is who's pocket.

Vote for Rocky Raczkowski on Tuesday and lets start cleaning up Washington.

That is my stand.
