I keep seeing these television ads — no doubt paid for by our tax dollars — about the virtues of Clean Elections. The tag line is particularly annoying, and obviously false: “With Clean Elections, everybody wins.”
Since I’m not sharing an office with Gov. Napolitano, I beg to differ.

  1. I too have seen these commercials and feel that they are way out of line. It is disturbing that Clean Elections is promoting itself at taxpayer expense. And for what reason? Those to whom Clean Elections is applicable – those running for office – already know about it.
    The only thing I can figure is that Clean Elections is nervous that people are starting to realize that not everyone wins with this system. No doubt that the move by Senator Burns last session to change the name to the more appropriate “Publicly Funded Elections” makes them a little nervous as well.
    If only more knew that through Clean Elections, their hard-earned money goes to support candidates with whom they do not agree politically…
