I could count each dollar as a reason to vote for Michael Arcuri, but I won't take the easy way out. Let's count them all as coming together for just one big fat dirty money reason to vote for Mike Arcuri for Congress this November.
That's one hundred ninety two thousand, three hundred and forty three dollars of money that Ray Meier took from committees with political agendas, most of them from outside of New York State, not to mention New York's 24th congressional district.
This is money from corporations like General Motors, or the Verizon telephone company, or Valero Energy Corporation - the company with all those new gas stations, or Union Pacific railroad's offices in Washington D.C. And this is just the amount that Ray Meier took in the last three months.
Do you really believe that groups like the National Fuel Gas FEDPAC and COALPAC, the political action committee of the national mining association are in business to give money away for nothing? No way. These are big players, and they expect to get what they pay for... and they're trying to buy Ray Meier a victory.
And where is all this money coming from? From Washington D.C., Virginia, New Jersey, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, California, Florida... wherever powerful organizations want to buy themselves a politician. Boy, is Ray Meier ever up for sale. That's reason number 12 to vote for Michael Arcuri.
