Walberg, Club for Growth deny any wrong doing

The Ann Arbor News has picked up on Congressman Joe Schwarz's FEC elections law complaint against Club for Growth and former state Rep. Tim Walberg.

"The FEC complaint filed last week contends the Club for Growth coordinated expenditures from its political action committee and 527 organization, listing common political strategists and pollsters who were paid by the Club for Growth, Walberg and three other campaigns of senate or congressional candidates in Rhode Island, Nevada and Idaho," The Ann Arbor News reported.

Walberg and the club deny all of Schwarz's charges.
Joe Wicks, Walberg's campaign manager, told the Ann Arbor News that his camp is "sad and disappointed that after losing the election they'd stoop to this.''

Walberg should be focused on winning the election rather than responding to the Schwarz FEC case, and it appears he is doing neither. The FEC thing will take a while, but right now he needs to make sure we don't lose this seat to the Dems. He has a history of taking a very safe GOP seat (LENAWEE STATE REP SEAT,) expecting everyone else to do all the work to get him elected, and barely winning. He won county wide in his last general election by around 250 votes. With all the talk about moderate republicans writing in Joe Schwarz, Walberg better get off his butt or we will have a CongressWoman next year.

Wicks claims Schwarz is "stooping to this." What is that Mr. Wicks, playing by the rules? Asking the federal election officials to take a look at a situation when you believe you have seen the rules get broken? Calling a cheater out on the mat?

This is outrageous. There was flagrant lawbreaking and Walberg says he has no idea. Unbelievable!

What does it matter if we have Republican or Democrat in the seat? It's not like we are going to be well represented by either party. The 7th will be irrevelant for the next two years regardless of who's holding the seat. We really screwed up big time by getting rid of Schwarz. All we can do is wait for a strong candidate to run in 08. Neither Walberg or Reiner will be re-elected because neither of them will be able to accompolish anything.

How much do you want to bet that CFG had something to do with the placement and background on this story?
