I wrote a check to Gerry Connolly for $1,079,868

And it's perfectly legal. By collecting money from a few people interested in seeing Gerry return to Congress in 2011, and funneling it through my committee, we can change the outcome of this election.
Remember, voters are stupid. They are likely to remember the latest ad they see. In the next few days we want these voters to receive individual pieces of mail, each with one of our talking points.
We want the most recent memory in voter's minds to be one of the following:
Gerry Connolly doesn't support spending even though he voted in favor of all four trillion dollars of it in the past two years.
Gerry Connolly does not support Obama's expansion of taxpayer-funded health care benefits to all, despite voting in favor of it.
Gerry Connolly was successful as a Fairfax County official. Few complained when their taxes doubled during his time in charge of the Board of Supervisors, and the economic crash did not happen until his last year in office.
Gerry Connolly is in favor of creating more jobs, without saying he believes the best way to do this is to bring illegal immigrants into Fairfax County so they can work at affordable rates.
We will match these mailings with others attacking Keith Fimian on every issue including those that are not even being debated this year such as abortion rights and gun control.
We will even accuse Keith Fimian of being responsible for the Virginia Tech shooting. One of our supporters, Reema Samaha, is the sister of a VT victim and will allow us to use her in our ads.
Finally, with this money we can get President Obama to record a phone message and send cards with His signature to the party faithful, encouraging them to vote for Gerry Connolly.
We may not win on Tuesday, but we will at least be able to say that we spent more on Gerry Connolly than on any other house race.
