Keep eyes on donations to Bustos, Durbin

Published: Saturday, May 10, 2014 1:15 a.m. CDT

SVM reporter David Giuliani took the bait. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is like the picadors in a bull fight. Their job is to weaken the bull.

They are not going to suggest political reporters and columnists check the list of political contributors for incumbent Democrats like Bustos. Logically, you begin the scrutiny with the one who raised the highest sum.

Bustos raised over $1 million just coming out of the chute. Is the DCCC certain they have not received “scandal-tainted” money? Where was Mr. Josh Schwerin and his concern for the people of Illinois when Rod Blagojevich was our governor? 

If and when someone from the DCCC returns David’s call, Mr. Giuliani should suggest they make darn sure that they check Sen. Dick Durbin’s report of contributions. He is a Democrat from Illinois, the land of opportunity.
