Connecticut: Simmons and Courtney Spar Over Contributions

Public Campaign Action Fund is now Every Voice. Check out our new website:

Political contributions are becoming a hot topic in a congressional race in Connecticut. Incumbent Rep. Simmons is dogging challenger Joe Courtney over contributions he received from Rep. Pelosi's PAC. Simmons is getting heat for the $39,000 that he took from DeLay over the years (and which he refuses to return). More on the story can be found at the Norwich Bulletin.

Public Campaign Action Fund ran this ad (mpeg file) calling on Simmons to give back the money he got from Tom DeLay.
