A top House Democrat said Tuesday that a Scott Walker win in Wisconsin’s gubernatorial recall election would signal that money is playing an outsized role in influencing U.S. elections.

In advance of the Badger State’s hotly contested race, House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said voters should be concerned about the rising amounts of money – particularly the undisclosed kind – in campaigns.

“Scott Walker -- as I understand it -- has received literally millions of dollars from outside Wisconsin in this race,” Hoyer said during his weekly briefing with reporters.“I think one thing will remain is that money makes a difference, and I think that’s a bad implication.”

“Money too often drowns out a good message,” he added.

Walker has dramatically outraised and outspent Democrat Tom Barrett in the recall election. The current governor has raised $30.5 million and spent $29.3 million as of May 31, according to the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign. Barrett has raised about $3.9 million while spending $2.9 million.

This has to be reason Democrats like welfare, they don't like money or at least they don't like Republicans with money. Democrats with money, like Kennedy, Kerry, Pelosi, Clinton. Apparently the message doesn't get lost when it the Dems!! Another post about nothing but crappola!! If your going to steal my monider at least post something of substance instead of the crap!

Mr Obama's Handlers had him out with the Sex-offender-in-chief, Mr Hillary-Rodam-Clinton last night in New York.....I believe these "Peoples Politicians" collected $3.6 Million last night.

I wonder what Ms Palosi's Lapdog Steny Hoyer has to say about that?

I like Demokrats, they are so wise and Consistent.

You are drunk again. I can tell - you make even less sense than usual.

"Sex-offender-in-chief "? What are you referring to? She's like a virgin compared to the Minnesota Republican party (and you spelled her name incorrectly).

Who is "Ms Palosi"? I know of no one in the Democratic party by that name.

Is the fact the Obama is involved in fundraising activities somehow a problem with you? Seems to me that EVERY president, Democratic and Republican, has been involved in fundraising - at least in the last century.

The point of this thread, which obviously went way over your head, is that Walker spent more time on the road outside of Wisconsin raising funds from billionaires than he did in Wisconsin, and that the billioaires contributed almost $40 million dollars.

See the difference?

What's your definition of "fair share"? And who exactly should determine what the "fair share" should be?

Ever heard of the cigar dildo in the oval orafice? Billary was a willing accomplice by not divorcing the "Sex-offender-in-chief. "

Our White House has a permanent stain of national infidelity that will never be washed out of the "blue (dress) part" of the presidential seal.

Now that's a role model.

By fair share you mean enough for losers like you to sit around on your ass trolling the net while others pay your way. You must be one of the 49% who pay no income tax.
I called you out on another thread and you were too cowardly to respond. You've been seriously bitch-slapped, fool!

That Steny Hoyer is quite the rocket scientist isn't he? Voters have been concerned about the purchasing of political offices for some time but no one on the receiving end of those funds (pretty much everyone in politics, especially in WA.) will not do anything about it.

And how much money did Obama get last campaign and how much for this next one? Can you say Hypocrites?

Excuse me? I work for a living, pay income taxes, and have for 40 years now. I take exception with you assuming that anyone that supports the Democrats is on welfare - that couldn't be further from the truth and only shows your lack of knowledge.

Furthermore, the way that Republicans are working to cut middle class wages, you can expect more and more people that don't pay income taxes and need government assistance.

What kind of idiot expects minimum wage families to be able to afford health care, for example, seeing you oppose the ACA?

You can't see beyond the end of your nose, loser.

The difference is that Federal campaign finance laws were significantly opened up by a recent Supreme Court ruling - now the rich can donate anonymously and without limits.

What that leads to is the rich buying America, literally. I expect this may make the difference in Wisconsin today (Walker raised almost $40 million from mostly out of state sources while Barrett was only able to raise under $4 million).

Is that how it should work? Political vacancies go to the candidate with the most money?

Obama raised more than McCain because he was a certain winner. Who backs a loser?

The laws are different now. There are no limits on amounts and donors can remain anonymous.

Obama got very little money from billionaires. Most were smaller donations from individuals, either directly or through PACs.
