This time it’s Randy Forbes from Virginia’s 4th Congressional District. Using franking (i.e. – taxpayer money) to get his message out to * ahem * voters, that he wants to spend less taxpayer money (or at least he wants Democrats to spend less taxpayer money).
Take a look at these mailers that went out across the district this past week (highlighting added by me):
That little highlighted bit on the back page – it says “This mailing was prepared, published and mailed at taxpayer expense”. At least you didn’t waste much ink writing that little side note Mr. Forbes – it’s barely legible!
The plus-side to all this: I suppose Randy Forbes doesn’t need to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars from corporate PACs if he relies on taxpayers to pay for his election-year mailings. Oh wait, he does that anyways.
Sick of right-wing deficit peacocks who demonize government spending (as long as it’s not their own)? Fortunately there’s an alternative: LeGrow for Congress in Virginia’s 4th Congressional District
