email from Tim Canova with the tag '$5,400 for a bagel?





Dear me,

There’s a pretty good breakfast place near our headquarters where you can purchase a bagel for $1.35. Including schmear.

But on Tuesday, Debbie Wasserman Schultz is holding a fundraising event where her huge corporate donors — and we're not making this up — will be paying $5,400 to have a bagel with our insider opponent and superdelegate friends. No word yet on if those corporate donors are getting cream cheese with that check.

This is another incredible example of how broken our campaign finance laws have become. It would take a working American making the minimum wage in Florida 671 hours — more than 16 weeks of work — just to be able to afford that bagel and speak with their member of Congress.

I don’t know about you, but that must be some bagel…

Your contribution will help us defeat Wasserman Schultz and send a powerful message that we are sick and tired of Washington politicians selling access to corporate donors. We’ve had enough of wealthy elites buying our elections and rigging our economy.

If you've saved payment info with ActBlue Express, your donation will be made automatically:

You never know, Tim's race may be the reason for DWS's job being in jeopardy; the need for her to actually go out in the wilds and meet her voters

2. DWS is having a fundraiser?

How dare she? My word!

Maybe Tim Canova should look into that concept...

8. Gee, he has. And he's rejected that form of fundraising. Dirty PaydayDebbie

 

who has received beaucoup $$$$$ from the loanshark payday loan industry and fought regulation of that industry, is no role model for raising political donations.

Oh, and he's raised over $2,250,000.

He's doing just fine.

11. So you support someone who endorses Repbulicans and supports payday lending.

Prime example of what is wrong with the Democratic Party. No principles left and standing up for Republican policies.
