Arizona’s Leading Socialist Failing to Keep ‘Money out of Politics’

In his “2012 Year in Review Report,” Arizona Congressman Raul Grijalva claims he is leading the fight “to get money out of politics.” But that didn’t stop Arizona’s ranking Socialist leader from raising $908,544 for his 2012 re-election campaign. And true to his Socialist Democrat pedigree, the congressman spent more than he took in — $930,950. Why not let other people bear the cost of that? It’s the true Democrat way.

Records show that Grijalva kept “money out of politics” by accepting donations from 21 labor unions last year.

He also accepted $29,000 from lobbyists – the people Democrats claim to detest.

More than a third of his donations came from political action committees — $325,478.

Grijalva co-chairs the Congressional Progressive Caucus, the largest Socialist club in Congress. Apparently money in Socialist politics is acceptable.
