Former Kentucky State Sen. Jerry Lundergan Gives Big To Anthony Weiner For Mayor
BY Susannah Griffee
Jerry Lundergan, the father of Kentucky Democratic Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes, lives in Lexington, Ky. But he maxed out to Anthony’s Weiner’s New York City mayoral campaign to the tune of $4,950 on June 27.
BRAWL NEW LOGO.jpgOur Friedman and Fermino report:
Does Lundergan, who resigned a State Senate seat in 1989 after a conviction for an ethics violation, just like helping fellow pols forced who resigned in scandal?
Lundergan, who also served as chairman of the Kentucky Democratic Party, did not respond to inquiries, but it's more likely his interest in the race relates more to Bill and Hillary Clinton than Weiner.
Lundergan was Kentucky chair of the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton, the mentor and long-term employer of Weiner’s wife Huma Abedin.
Lundergan and the Clinton’s have a longstanding relationship, and Bill Clinton reportedly led a push that convinced Grimes, who is Kentucky’s Secretary of State, to enter the race against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). In the process he helped push out actress Ashley Judd, who Democrats had courted as a candidate before their interest waned and Judd declined to run.
Lundergan is part of national contingent of politicos and donors tied to the Clintons whose largesse Huma has helped tap for her husband.
A McConnell spokesman said the Weiner contribution shows Grimes’ close ties to the Democratic Party establishment.
“Scandals aside, Anthony Weiner was one of the most liberal members of Congress," McConnell campaign manager Jesse Benton said.“Alison may try to pretend she is different, but her campaign will be bank-rolled by big national liberals and no one should believe that Alison is not in lock step with the Obama agenda.”
A spokeswoman for Republican Party of Kentucky said Lundergan’s contribution to Weiner raises questions about his daughter’s “respect for women.”
A spokesman for Grimes’ campaign, which is still getting off the ground, did not respond to an inquiry.
The Apple doesn't fall too far from the tree!!
