Oh, it's out of hand. Word comes from the Huffington Post (here) that an obscenely rich contractor from Texas--a guy who backed George Bush and the outrageous Swift Boat campaign--has his financial gun aimed at Virginia Democrat Tim Kaine, who has been leading the Senate race for a good while. He's running against George Allen, who was in the Senate until losing six years ago.
The man, Bob Perry, is making a $1 million donation to a political action committee that is backing Allen. Nearly $10 million has been spent by outside groups on the Virginia Senate campaign by groups attacking Kaine.
Isn't it time we took back our elections?
