Billy Kennedy Matching Foxx $-for-$ in the 1st Q of 2010

Federal Elections Commission reports are in for the 1st Quarter of 2010 (January 1 - March 31), and Billy Kennedy took in over $100,000 to Foxx's $102,000. Wha???

Take a look at the FEC filing documents for yourself: Here's Foxx's. And here's Billy Kennedy's.

This is huge news. To our knowledge, no Democratic candidate in the NC-5 has ever shown this kind of fundraising prowess ... especially not against The Madam.

Furthermore, the Kennedy campaign is reporting that most of their money is coming from small donors, over 900 of them. Most of Foxx's money is coming from big Special Interests, including the American Bankers' Association, the National Association of Health Underwriters, and the National Association of Realtors PAC.

For a two-term professional politician like Virginia Foxx, this is a major embarrassment and proof of vunerability.

Foxx has many reasons to be embarrassed (death panels, no support for education, no vote on extension of unemployment, etc.) This is only the latest. I'm sure there are more embarrassments to come. Like her early retirement.

Tom: do you really think 1.23 Million in the bank is a reason to be embarrassed?

Yes, it's embarassing when you portray yourself as a "common folk" one of the people and you are worth millions and have voted against aid for katrina victems and frood for our nation's hungry children. It certainly is an embarrassment.

We should be suspicious as to how her net worth increased so much so fast in public service, while we, her constituents and supposedly her employers, have lost so much ground.
Who is she really working for?
