Orrin Hatch's Donors.....Not Your Clean Cut Donors

Senator Hatch apparently receives a great deal of money from tobacco, liquor, and gambling industries... he says:

Hatch told the Daily Herald editorial board recently that he has no qualms. The tobacco, alcohol and gambling industries are not trying to influence him, he said. They are merely showing support for his brand of politics.
So in other words, according to Senator Hatch, if a pornographer was a staunch conservative, it would be fine to receive funds from that said pornographer?

Politics always produces strange bedfellows. His friendship with Senator Kennedy should be no surprise. They have more in common than not.

After writing a few e-mails to Pete Ashdown, I'm feeling pretty good about him going head-to-head with Hatch. He's got opinions, but not to the point of shutting out suggestions, and he has a level head. Sure, I may disagree with him on a few points, but I know he's going to try and do the right thing AFTER thinking it through.

hey elforesto, sorry for the late reply. I can only hope for Utah's sake that Hatch is removed from power. I'm beginning to agree more and more with those who espouse term limits on Congressional representatives, as well as a repealing of the 17th Amendment.
