Rep. John Carter Got Money From Convicted Congressman
Here's the post from OffTheKuff, Duke's money is still good in Texas
, and the list of Texas Congressman:
Here are some excerpts from this DMN
article, Texas congressmen to get rid of 'dirty money'
Before federal investigators exposed the bribes he took from defense contractors, now-resigned Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham of California shared his political funds with eight Texas Republican congressmen.
With pressure mounting from Democrats, most vowed Thursday to donate the money to one good cause or another. Recipients included Rep. Tom DeLay, the former majority leader whose legal defense fund got $6,000 from Mr. Cunningham's American Prosperity political action committee.
"We want to stay as clean as we can," said DeLay fund trustee Brent Perry.
It says most, that means not all. And despite the humor from the DeLay fund trustee what about John Carter?
Rep. John Carter of Round Rock, also a former judge, got $1,000 but did not respond to repeated inquiries over two days.
That is a familiar refrain from most of John Carter's constituents that I talk to. Of course, not many of them donate to him so I guess that means they get less representation. Anyway, give Rep. Carter a call (DC:
(202) 225-3864, RR:
(512) 246-1600, or Bell County:
(254) 933-1392) and let us know what he says, also let Charles Kuffner know by commenting at the post above.
