    This is absolutely astounding. I have never heard of a candidate not running for president raise this kind of money in that time span.

    The queston is: Who provided the $14 million?
    [well, I suspect Roberts, Alito, Kennedy, Thomas and Scalia facilitated the donation. We'll never know if elected who bought the seat for her]
    Citizens United v. FEC was a coup by five reactionary conservative activist members of the USSC.

    Who cares where she got it? Harry Reid exploits his political power to raise as much as he wants. Are her donors tainted because they oppose the regime?

    Reid is toast... I love this. Reid, who made tons on shady land deals now whines about Angle's contributions. Maybe Harry should have focused a bit more on the massive unemployment in his state rather than imposing Obamacare on the American people. And I;m sure his condescending remarks about smelly tourists didn't help. He's an asshole.

    Good Lord... yeah, I bet they all met secretly and gathered up the money.. probably at Dick Cheney's house or maybe at a secret Halliburton locations. Man, you're a world-class numbnut.

    "Regime" refers to a method or system of government; is often used to refer to a military government, or to a government that lacks legitimacy.
    You may disagree with Obama's policies, but suggesting illegitimacy is crazy.

    Her donors may or may not be tainted, we will never know and that is an affront to our basic principles.
    Special interest lobbying is accepted, and should be as long as the playing field is fair. When money enters the arena any pretense of honest governance goes away, for politicians no matter how well intentioned must be elected to govern. It is therefore easy to accept 'donations' because in the long run (they delude themselves) they will do good works and in this way justify the means.

    NOLA,
    Thanks for sharing.
