A rival blog claimed that Nancy Boyda* was being responsible for not re-authorizing FISA. I countered that the Democrat majority was paying back the trial lawyer special interests - a special interest Nancy's husband Steve is a member of.
This article documents the money flowing into Democrat coffers from attorneys suing the telecommunications companies - $78,300 for the 2008 cycle from ONE attorney alone.
Lawyers and law firms are Nancy Boyda's TOP contributors this election cycle, $53,469, on top of $37,000 in 2006 and over $89,000 in 2004. Add it up, and you get, about $180,000 in campaign contributions from trial lawyers - far and away her top contributors (not including the nearly $300,000 of her own trial lawyer husband's money that was loaned to the 2004 campaign). When the trial lawyers say "jump," Nancy says "how high."
To paraphrase Nancy Boyda in 2006 on the campaign trail, the trial lawyer special interests don't just influence the Democrat majority, they own Nancy Boyda.
Had enough hypocrisy?
*Some people are distracted by my using Boyda-Pelosi in my posts. I think it's important to make this point without distraction.
Dedicated to the proposition that Nancy Boyda is a one termer.
