Re: E-M:/ Senator Abraham's at it again

Hi Mr. Green Jeans and Others,

Hmmm.  Can't see the connection between the hemmorrage of vested interest
money to political campaigns and the destructive environmental (and economic
and social) positions of so many Michigan republicans (and many Michigan
dems too)?  Doesn't surprise me.

p.s enviro groups should be required to disclose their independent
expenditures as well - no exceptions should be made in this issue.

Best Wishes,

David J. Zaber
