What Corruption Looks Like

Posted: Updated:

What I love about corruption in DC is that it's just so damned tacky.

Invitation

Al Wynn is running in Maryland's fourth Congressional district for reelection against progressive challenger Donna Edwards. Wynn sat in Congress for fifteen years with no challenges until Donna came along in 2006, helping every corporate interest that came his way. I'm not going to advocate for Donna much in this post. I just want you to feast your eyes on this incredible tacky specimen of a fundraiser invitation.

Who knew Verizon had a good government committee?

There's lots of good information on the race and the dynamics of it here. The primary is on February 12, and you can find more on Donna here.

Corruption even makes bad font choices.
