these huge campaign contributions and pac dumps ensure elected officials are beholden to return favor in expectation of keeping their jobs during the next electoral merry-go-round

For some, it is only a problem when it benefits Republicans. When the Hollywood elite donate to Obama, it is all good.

Oh yeah. Richard Gilliam.

He purchased a farm in Albemarle County in 2004 for $6.5 million....then he out the bulk of the farm into a conservation easement with the Virginia Outdoors Foundation, and that land is now "valued" for tax purposes at only $10,300. And, of course, Gilliam took big federal and state tax credits for the easement, and his local taxes are reduced significantly as well. Like a good Republican "patriot" (wink, snort), Gilliam wants other taxpayers to subsidize him.

And Gilliam sure is a Republican. Besides the big money he's given to Mitt " I Cannot Tell the Truth" Romney –– who would cut taxes for people like Gilliam even more –– and the chunk of cash he gave Karl Rove, who helped George W. Bush create the myth about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and ruin the economy, Gilliam has spread the money around to other conservative Republican nitwits, among them:

• Little Bob McDonnell (at least $25,000);

• George "Macaca" Allen (at least $25,000);

• Rob Bell (more than $80,000)....Bell voted to require women seeking a legal, constitutionally-protected abortion to undergo an “expensive, invasive procedure called a transvaginal ultrasound, wait 24 hours, and have it go on their permanent record.” Bell voted to allow private adoption agencies to legally practice discrimination. So much for “liberty and justice for all.” Oh, but wait...Bell is a "patriot" (snicker).

• Ken "I Don't Know How to Lawyer" Cuccinelli ($25,000);

• Scott Lingamfelter ($10,000)...truly one of the crazies in the House of Delegates.

These are the politicians to whom Richard Gilliam gives his money. They're all conservative Republicans. They dearly love to wrap themselves in the flag, but they wouldn't know the Constitution if it walked up and slapped them in the face.

The vast majority of the national debt was piled up under Republican presidents and their supply-side policies, which are directly responsible for the financial meltdown, the mortgage crisis (no, it wasn't Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac) and the broken economy.

And Richard Gilliam and his conservative brethren want even more of it.

You might just want to look up the party that was in power when the conservation easements were passed. Hint: it wasn't the Republicans.

He should give his money to people that need it, like the people in NJ & NY! That's a typical rich Resnoblican, who will probably end up in hell!

Thankyou for this, forgot his name in conjunction with that scam thats condoned by the state. The sad part is, no matter what truths you put out there SOME people just don't get it.
