Unity08 Solicits Unclean Political Contributions
You may remember that in January of 2007, the corporate leadership of Unity08 made press releases and videos excoriating presidential candidates who took more than half their money in donations of $250 or more. According to Unity08, donations of more than $250 were “unclean.” The headline of Unity08’s press release in that regard (“Unity08 Launches ‘Clean Money Pledge,’ Gives Teeth to Promise to Transform Politics”) makes Unity08’s own record on ‘Clean Money’ relevant. Well, Unity08 has just sent out a new fundraising appeal with half of its suggested donation amounts at “unclean” levels of $500 or more. Dirt for me but not for thee?
