Watchdog: People Will Have to Work a Lot More Hours to Buy Influence in a Bush Administration

July 9, 2015 | Adam Smith

Washington, D.C.–Campaign finance watchdog Every Voice released the following statement on the news that Jeb Bush’s super PAC raised $103 million in the first six months of 2015:

“Everyday people would have to work a heck of a lot more hours to buy the kind of access and influence the millionaires and billionaires just bought in a possible Jeb Bush administration,” said David Donnelly, president and CEO of Every Voice. “That Bush attended dozens of fundraisers to help raise that cash while claiming he wasn’t running for president is the political lie of the year so far, and it’s probably illegal.”

“Jeb says he’ll take on the culture of special interest access’ in Washington,” Donnelly continued. “Now’s the perfect time for him to explain how he plans to do that.”
