Rep. Louise Slaughter
Rochester, N.Y. -- Financial reports of candidates is extremely important and often tells more stories than meet the eye. Take for example the race for Congress in NY25. Between April 1 and June 6, Democratic incumbent Louise Slaughter raised $242,396.35, while Maggie Brooks raised $185,652.72. Slaughter also has more cash on hand too: she has $688,558.16 to Brooks’ $367,582.72.

Mitt Romney and folks like Maggie Brooks have the same game plan in mind: hide their special interest radical agenda for long as possible and raise vast of sums of money from the rich people they're working to protect. Maggie's average individual contribution is $1,627.80. Her campaign contribution list reads like a "Who's Who" of top brass and nonunion county employees. Not many regular average folks on that list.

Conversely, the average donation to the Slaughter campaign is $85.86. Early on, it shows that there is a ground swell of interest to keep this district blue, but it will take the strength of our progressive people-powered grassroots organizations to get this done.

Slaughter’s donations come from people of all walks of life who want to see a fair and honest government that represents all of us. Unfortunately, Maggie is already caught up in accepting help from mega-rich right wing extremists and will no doubt be beholden to them. If you want a strong middle class, good paying jobs and big oil and rich folk to pay their fair share, then Louise needs you to join her campaign today. We mean right now.
