Does Judy Feder Have A Gambling Problem?

By Greg L | 23 April 2008 | Virginia Politics, US Congress | 13 Comments

Most insiders already know Judy Feder, candidate in the 10th Congressional district of Virginia has raised most of her money out of state this cycle, as she did in her last attempt for office.  Sometimes looking at who these donors are can provide some fascinating insight about the agenda that Judy Feder might be interested in advancing, should hell freeze over and she actually get elected. Of these donors, all the way out in Californa, is particularly worthy of a closer look.

The organization in question is The Santa Ynez Band of Mission Indians, a California Indian tribe that is heavily affiliated with the gaming industry. Casinos at the Tule River Reservation and The Santa Ynez reservation spent $140,000 lobbying Congress in 2007, and now see Judy Feder as someone they want in Congress, and are donating thousands of dollars to her campaign.  Is Feder so concerned about her fundraising she is ready and willing to be essentially bought out by a major Indian tribe with very large casinos almost three-thousand miles away from Virginia’s 10th district?

It shouldn’t much of a surprise that Indian tribes are attempting to sway a federal election on the opposite coast by donating thousands of dollars to Judy Feder. Considering that her opponent Congressman Frank Wolf has been outspoken critic of casino gambling, they’ve got to find some way to move their agenda. So why is Feder so ready and willing to take this money so heavily tied to gambling casinos almost three thousand miles away from her District?

Simple.  Because this clearly is a candidate who has hung out the “for sale” sign.

    Oh no, Greg. Are you having so much trouble finding people who hate hispanics that you are trying spread even more racist sentiments by casting Native Americans as a group that are trying to ruin America.

    Don’t forget that Native Americans were the orgininal group fighting illegal immigraton. Guess you forgot about that in your eager attempts to prove how you’re a racist SOB.

    Don’t Native American tribes have an exemption from Federal campaign finance contribution limits? If that is (still) the case, Judy is obviously following the money!

    Anon 6:17 PM — Here is something racist for you: 2 + 2 = 4. I’m sure you will find a way to deem that remark to be offensive.

    Congrats Ron, you can do math that most kids can do before they enter preschool!!!!!!!

    I don’t find that racist at all. I’m very proud of you for all the hard work you must have put into figuring out that answer.

    Odd, I don’t see any racist comments in the story. Anon 6:17 has either a very good imagination or a very paranoid mind.
    You must be pretty fired up since you feel the need to use obscenities.

    With all the moolaah laying around going into Hillary’s and Hussein’s campaign coffers, me wonders if plenty of Soros funds aren’t just laying around any where, like chinese restaurants and budhist temples to find their way into any Democrat’s campaign?

    Hey Anon 6:17 — All I was saying is that you and your ilk take any statement, no matter how irrelevant, and turn it into a charge of racism. Now I did ask a legitimate question about campaign funding, and you are apparently to dimwitted to answer. Easier to charge “racism.”

    I hope that you are holding Barack Obama (and some of his “spiritual advisors”) to the same standards.

    Ron, I’m actually a Republican and will proudly be voting for McCain in November. I’m just sick of the tactics used by the extremists in our party because they’re doing nothing but alienating voters.

    And to answer your question, Native Americans DO NOT have an exemption from Federal campaign finance contribution limits. Nice try though.

    It’s a good thing ole Wolf doesn’t have a serious Democratic challenge. He’d be in deep kimshi.

    “Ron, I’m actually a Republican and will proudly be voting for McCain in November.”

    No conservative is actually going to be proudly voting for McCain. Ever.

    Wow that was far reaching. Did someone’s lawn-mower guy get deported?

    Go over to the ANTI site - many of the people there will provide an excellent example of shouting RACIST while stereotyping people who uphold the law. It’s interesting (yet sad) to see it in action!

    I honestly thought that the tribes had gotten some sort of exemption via the last McCain-Feingold campaign finance law.

    See these example:

    If the law was changed, I would appreciate someone telling me that.
