John Deeth Blog: Ed Fallon's ironic campaign finance issues

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

Ed Fallon has always cut a Not Just Another Politician image, from his
refusal to wear neckties during his legislative tenure to his
deliberately modest earthy-crunchy lifestyle. Leonard Boswell, on the
other hand, even looks like he could have been sent from central
casting to play the part of good old boy politician. And his campaign
finance course has been traditional, too. He hauled in over $540,000
in PAC contributions during 2007. So how come Fallon is losing ground
on, of all issues, campaign finance? Campaign finance was supposed to
be one of Fallon's signature issues in his primary challenge to
incumbent Boswell in the 3rd Congressional District. Fallon has long
refused PAC and lobbyist donations, and during his legislative
campaigns turned down donations of over $100.
