#NCSEN: Bought and Paid For?

Kay Hagan’s largest donor appears to be Emily’s List — $404,000 over the span of her career 

The Daily Haymaker, Brant Clifton, February 1, 2014

The mainstream media could do the right thing and cover the upcoming Senate contest in terms of the issues. Inform the voters, keep their readers / viewers up to date — that kind of thing. Or they could be lazy and cover it in terms of the dollars chase.  

Looking at the dollars chase, a troubling development rises to the surface.  The two candidates anointed by the media and the establishment — Kay Hagan and Thom Tillis — have campaign treasuries stuffed with large contributions from out-of-state and shadowy sources.  If you’ve got six figures coming in to you from large, shadowy and out-of-state interests, who are you going to listen to when the rubber meets the road?
