New Ten Buck Friday Poll For The Week

I'm a couple of days behind on this. A good blogger would have been all over this on Monday.

Anyhoo. . .

Ten Buck Fridays. It's to help people organize into giving to a worthy candidate at the end of a week ten bucks. Ten dollars doesn't seem like much but it adds up when everyone kicks it.

And you may not want to donate to Rev. Steven Broden in TX-30. There may be a local candidate you might want to donate to instead. That's fine. There are other choices in the poll this week.

Just know this, Democrat Eddie Bernice Johnson is the incumbent and she's as corrupt as they come:

Dallas Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson has acknowledged "making a mistake" when awarding her own relatives and 2 children of her top Dallas-based aide scholarship money intended to be awarded to deserving students residing in the districts of Congressional Black Caucus members. Johnson claims she wasn't aware of the rules for awarding scholarship money because the rules had been ambiguous in prior years. Since 2005 Johnson has awarded a total of 23 scholarships to family members. Johnson additionally awarded scholarships to 5 other students who did not meet the residency requirements specified by the nonprofit Congressional Black Caucus Foundation. Johnson again claimed she was unaware of the residency requirement for the scholarship.

Vote for Stephen Broden and give Johnson the boot. It's for the deserving children. Not Johnson's family who is siphoning off of public funds.

Besides, Johnson has a good sized war chest as it is. It's time to even up that playing field.
