Here's a round-up of Public Campaign and Public Campaign Action Fund's work for the week of July 18-July 22, 2011.

Priorities?

"Stop doing your job, and get to work!" That, of course, is not an actual quote from Republican party leadership, but after some members of the class of 2010 reported low fundraising numbers this quarter, one could imagine them hearing it. Open Secrets has a blog post today that delves into the fundraising numbers of the freshman class of lawmakers, who were sent here presumably to legislate, and have found that's not necessarily the priority.

"Washington is bought and sold"

When you're a longshot presidential candidate, you are free to say many of the things that others likely think, but wouldn't dare say. Former governor, and current Republican presidential candidate, Buddy Roemer, is a great example of that. Think Progress has video and a transcript of Roemer speaking at a recent GOP convention, where he vowed to stand up to corporate giants who are "corrupting our poltiical system."
