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?

    Yowza. Well, I’d already put out my contact information here anyway over the past couple of years — kind of when anybody said, “Ooooh, you gotta be careful, someone’s gonna kill you!” It’s my way of showing that people are whipping themselves up into some unnecessary fears… I’m still alive and kicking.

    But since this instance of sharing my personal info doesn’t really have any point, I’ve taken it off. Nice to know Unity08 is tracking its visitors so thoroughly. Thanks for the tip.
