Say what you will about Jennifer Brunner’s holiday fundraising email pointing her donors to give money to charity, it got another “me too” out of Lee Fisher. ?Except as usual, Lee steps in it from the get go.
Instead of simply parroting Brunner’s suggestion to donate to charity, which itself would have been pathetic, Lee uses his campaign to raise money for the charity he used to run, and will likely return to when he loses this election. ?Recall that Lee once got a salary of $300,000+ from Center for Families and Children. ?He’s now using his own US Senate campaign to make sure the landing is just as comfortable after he loses this election.
You’ll recall that Lee Fisher partly justified his double dipping into state taxpayer money, to become jobs czar AND Lt. Governor, because he didn’t want to take the salary hit from $300k to the lowly lt. governor salary alone. ?Clever.
