    Why does Murphy have so much if he ran unopposed he didn’t need that money but still raised the second most

  2. G says:

    @ksdf if you think angling like he was going to run for senate isn’t the reason he has so much more money than the other reps, then you don’t really understand how campaign finance works. I’d bet he would agree with me on that part of my statement if you asked him.

    How much of Shuster’s stash came from his girlfriend?

  4. KSDF says:

    @G, Oh please! Meehan’s pathetic congressional opponents are why he can bank so much. Meehan netted more than Mary Ellen Balchunis raised in 2014 and 2016 and more than Badey raised in 2012.

    Absolutely brilliant showing a current federal map with old names. Hey Paul, you wanna quit? :-/

  6. G says:

    Positioning himself as a contender for the senate seems to have aided Meehan in growing his war chest. The 7th district is a disgrace, and is the poster child for the the Republican party’s anti-democratic(not just anti-Democratic) tendencies. Pat Meehan is the swamp.

    You mis-spelled Goebbels.

  8. RGorble365 says:

    piece of advice to the left – maybe you should do some research on the members ya’ll troll before calling them crooks or rich SOBs or sorry ‘privileged’

  9. doggy style says:

    Does that include the cash bribes too?

  10. Whistleblower says:

    There’s no ffff way Boyle and Brady have the exact same amount. Add another 500 k to Nradys. ???!

  11. Seka says:

    I wonder if $60,000 of Meehan’s expenses were for Uber rides.

    Hey Paul – do you proofread?
