With the recent story of Boulder liberal Mark Udall refusing to return contributions from admitted tax cheat (and fellow Democratic Congressman) Charlie Rangel, the list of dirty money flowing into the Udall campaign continues to grow. Wait, but there’s more. Over at Schaffer v Udall, I unearthed Udall’s “sweatshop” connection. Yes, it looks very much like retired “sweatshop” owner Susie Tompkins-Buell organized a $50,000 San Francisco fundraiser for Udall in 2007.
Charlie Rangel. Norman Hsu. Jack Abramoff. Susie Tompkins-Buell. All giving money to and/or organizing fundraisers for the Mark Udall campaign. Nearly all of the money kept by Udall. Reporters need to ask some hard questions, like should he at least consider returning the money?
