Harry Mitchell on the take.

The Gila Courier and Harry Mitchell Watch blogs have been looking into who is funding Harry Mitchell. Turns out that the well connected and accounting-challenged Charles Rangel of New York has channeled almost $30,000 into Mitchell’s coffers. Mitchell made a big deal about who was funding JD Hayworth’s campaign in 2006. It will be interesting to see if anyone on the left calls for Mitchell to return the cash from the tax-code inept Rangel.

Congressman Rangel is Chairman of the powerful Ways and Means Committee and works on writing the tax code. Maybe he should read his own work. Even the New Your Times has called for Rangel to step down from his position.

The 2006 ad attacking Hayworth stated that he was under investigation. Espresso Pundit wrote about the fact that the investigation of Hayworth turned up no evidence of wrongdoing despite the press’ efforts to smear him.

  1. I really hate to say this but this race is over. Schweikert’s own internal polls show him down 17 points to Mitchell and Mitchell polling over 50%…

    There is no way 17 points can be made up in the 45 days leading up to the election.

    Its time to shift our focus to the state house and senate races and beating Kirkpatrick and Lord.

  2. azgop286,

    Wow you must be really clever and insightful. Of the three races in AZ that are contested, the DCCC is running ads in one of them – AZ05. It must be because that one is over. The other two or close, but the DCCC really likes Mitchell so they are going to let Kirkpatrick and Giffords carry their own water — When you post, do you just make stuff up?
