It's not easy being Green
Republican Congressman Mark Green revealed the real culprit behind his campaign sitting on a mountain of tainted campaign cash. The State of Wisconsin!
His press release today about his fake return of the almost $30,000 of campaign money from indicted Congressman Tom DeLay tells a sad tale of how the State of Wisconsin made him keep the money.
Because state law allows Green to return only $2,000 to DeLay’s committee, Green called for a change in the law that would allow candidates to donate funds to charities, a move currently prohibited in Wisconsin.
In other words, I would get rid of this money if only I could. It's not easy trying to keep coming up with excuses on why you should keep dirty campaign money. Although perhaps he should have a chat with Congressman Paul Ryan. He has come up with some pretty creative ideas. Although blogger Eye on Wisconsin asks an interesting question that pretty much gets rid of one of Congressman Ryan's excuses.
