Refund Hypocrisy

Where's my refund?Former Democrat and temporary Congressman Parker Griffith still refuses to refund my contribution and hundreds of thousands of other dollars he collected while pretending to be a Democrat, not to mention roughly a million dollars from the DCCC.  There is no outcry from national Republicans demanding that he give back our Democratic dollars, but Repubs have been quick to scream for refunds from Charlie Crist (former R, Florida) who just announced he'll be running as an Independent this year.

Hypocrisy must be one of those values Republicans are always talking about.

These people are all outraged at Crist ... (4.00 / 1)
But it's totally fine with them if Parker Griffith keeps my money and $200,000+ of labor money.  Opportunists and hypocrites all.

Work harder and work smarter!

Crist said no one has asked for money back--but I bet that will happen. (4.00 / 2)
And I'm really interested to see how that plays out.

Club for Growth (4.00 / 1)

is already gearing up to contact his donors and urge them to request their refunds.

Hey Mooncat!  What if you called the Club for Growth and asked them to have Griffith send your refund?

Wonder what they'd say....

Twenty prominent Republicans demanded That Gov. Charlie Crist return every penny that some of them gave to his Senate campaign, saying he broke donors' trust when he decided to run as an independent.

The Republicans, including former state GOP chairman Al Cardenas, noted that Crist had $7.6 million in his campaign account at the end of March and said anyone who wants their money back should have it returned.

"We helped to support, and yes to bankroll, your political career. For years you have been asking us for money. And for years we have put our names and credibility on the line by asking our friends to donate to you. Those days are over," the letter read.
