So, finally, John Kerry coughs up some of his leftover 2004 Presidential campaign war chest to be distributed to Democrats in tough fights across the country. $500K, is chump change considering he has between $12 million and $16 million depending on who you ask. But still, at least he's finally coughing up something.
However, still on the penny-pincher's list is our very own Senator Evan Bayh. Bayh, who is sitting on something north of $9-10 million, hasn't turned over anything to the DSCC or the DCCC according to AmericaBlog and DailyKos.
WTF, Mr. Senator? Your presidential aspirations are such that hoarding every penny of the money you've raised, even if it means choking the life out of potential Democratic control of Congress? If we lose, do you not understand that we will remember this in two years?
At the blogger lunch I attended with you, Senator Bayh, you stated that the most important way to check the runaway lunacy of the Bush administration was to assure the taking back of the House by Democrats. Why, then, will you not share some of your incredibly large campaign coffers with other Democrats to help ensure that win? We're close enough that we could possibly even take back the Senate, which was not even a thought to consider at the blogger lunch, yet you won't even help fund races in your own house of Congress.
Shame on you!
