Since 2006, Eleanor Holmes Norton has raked in over $50,000 in donations from Jeffrey E. Thompson, the shady DC government contractor who made MILLIONS from D.C. taxpayers.
Yes! THAT Jeffrey E. Thompson, the focus of a federal corruption investigation.
THAT Jeffrey E. Thompson, implicated as the mastermind behind Vince Gray’s “shadow campaign.” The “shadow campaign” that flouted D.C. campaign finance law. The “shadow campaign” key to swinging the election, booting Mayor Fenty from office.
Three months after these donations came to light, Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton STILL REFUSES to give back a single penny of Thompson’s dirty dollars.
Congresswoman Norton seems to think she’s above it all. She REFUSES to join President Obama, Gov. O’Malley and Tim Kaine, who all returned Thompson’s dirty dollars.
That’s why Bruce Majors, Libertarian for Congress, has issued this challenge: “ELEANOR, GIVE IT BACK!”
Give back it back to D.C.! Redeem yourself and those dirty dollars and give them to District-based organizations that assist our fellow District citizens in need.
Del. Norton is sitting on a HUGE WAR CHEST. She faces only underfunded challengers.$50,000 of ill-gotten campaign funds could go a long way to help D.C. citizens in need instead of lining the pockets of campaign consultants in Maryland.
