Ethical outrage in Texas
Audit reveals how millions of dollars given to those who never filed an application. Totally outrageous. The good ol' boy system at its worst. At least for Texas, it doesn't look like the Repubs are any more reliable than the Dems. I suspect this is the case nationwide as the parties give so much money to their candidates that the parties, in effect, own them. We need more good independent candidates. We also need to carefully consider 3rd party candidates, e.g., Libertarian and Tea Party. Let's hope these parties don't become the self-serving and dysfunctional like the two major parties.
