More on Congressman Himes

In the post just before this one, I included the email sent by Jim Himes to his constituents. One thing was niggling at me: Himes’ apparent concern about PAC money. Has the Congressman accepted PAC money?

Why, yes.  Yes, he has. More than a third of his money in this cycle so far has come from PACs. More than a quarter of his money is from out of State. A pitiful 3% of the donations are from small donors.

Not only that, he has received money from Bain Capital! Does this mean that he is benefiting from outsourcing American jobs?

The astonishingly useful website Open Secrets has lots more detail on who is backing “our” Congressman.
