Pre-election Google Bomb

As I hear it, the GOP is whining. They're going to reveal the name of the person who thought this up.

Hint: his name is Chris Bowers. B-O-W-E-R-S, for the really slow ones (conservatives) out there.

Glad to help. Even if no one reads this sad little blog, Google still records it.

Use It Or Lose It

Chris Bowers at MyDD thought up the Use It or Lose It project, where safe and unopposed Dems are encouraged to transfer 30% of their cash on hand to the national party to help the people that need it.

Now then, my congresscritter is Jerry Costello (D-unindicted coconspirator). He's sitting on over $1.5 million cash on hand, and he's unopposed. Sweet deal, eh? So, going over to his expenditures page; what's this I see? $125,000 transferred to the party. Last transfer was $25K at the end of June.

Looking over the list - there's $1K directly to Melissa Bean (D-IL-8), $3K to the campaign of Brad Ellsworth (D-IN-Bloody 8th), a Baron Hill (D-IN-9) PAC for $2K, a Friends of Tammy Duckworth (D-IL-6), Leonard Boswell's (D-IA) campaign for $1K... S'ok because he's running into limits there.

Actually it looks like a good start, but he needs a bit of a noodge.

UPDATE: OK, they turned in their reports at the deadline last week, and Opensecrets hasn't gotten everything up. I know this because they list Allyson Schwartz (D-PA-Philly suburbs) there as giving $150K, and it hasn't turned up on her report yet.
