(Winslow not in on Peoples Pledge. This is great. The People’s pledge was a mistake in my estimation in the last race. – promoted by Rob “EaBo Clipper” Eno)
I support reforming the way we finance campaigns in this country. But I am surprised with such an urgent need for action in Washington, DC that anyone would be wasting time going over old plays that won’t produce a single job, a better education, a more secure retirement, a cleaner environment, a lower deficit, or an honest and straightforward way to finance our elections.
For congressmen Markey and Lynch to posture about outside money in politics when their coffers are already filled with money from outside Massachusetts just shows you how inauthentic this pledge really is. And the national Democrats already are spending money here by sending in their dirty tricks troops to my town.
I welcome any outside group to contribute positive bio or issue ads, mailings, social media and the like. I am running a different kind of campaign. I am not an entrenched Washington insider who has to sign a pledge in order to run a fair, clean, positive campaign.
