I can't post the story I found, cause it's an AP article, but here's one from back in April.
http://www.wfsb.com/politics/23280919/detail.htmlHARTFORD, Conn. -- Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, who is running for United States Senate, said he never took political action committee money, but the Federal Elections Committee shows he has.
PAC money has almost become a dirty word these days, because some think special interest money can influence a candidate.
Candidates need a lot of money if they want to be elected. On MSNBC’s "Morning Joe", Blumenthal said, “I have never taken PAC money and I have rejected all special interest money because I have stood strong and have taken legal action against many of those special interests.”
Though Blumenthal denied he took PAC money, the Federal Election Commission website said Blumenthal took more than $220,000 in PAC money.
Officials from Blumenthal’s campaign said he was referring to past elections.
Now, the newer AP article is saying it's up to $480,000. He claims that he only made that in reference to his campaigning as Attorney General, but one has to wonder why he can toss aside those "morals" for the US Senate.
