That's Some Friend, That $20,000.00 Friend!

David Bryan, the Cadillac, Pontiac and Honda dealer in Fayetteville, N.C., gave $20,000.00 to Friends of Melissa Leach broken in $4,900.00 increments. He gave $4,900.00 on 11/3/2009, S4,900.00 on 11/9/2009, $4,900.00 on 11/12/2009, $4,900.00 on 11/16/2009 and $400.00 on 11/17/2009 for a grand total of $20,000.00. That's Some Friend! And a clever friend, as none of his contributions were over $5,000.00 so the 48 hour
rule didn't apply! HAH!
Who is Melissa Leach? She used to go by Lisa Leach, she lived out west, was born in July, 1960, graduated from MSU in 1994 with an individualized bachelor of science degree, is a single parent who was on food stamps for a while, is a senior fundraiser at Strategic Fundraising, Inc (member of the "Strategic Million Dollar Club" - you may have seen their ads in the SN-L) and she is running for state representative in the 137th district in north Springfield.

In a video produced by her campaign, (probably what the $4,200 inkind donation from Rachel Young Design and Photography was used for - but we won't know because line 18 shows -0-) a banner text on the bottom of the screen states: "I support the Tea Party Movement - Taxed Enough Already". Her video is on youtube.

But that still doesn't answer the question of why a Car dealer in Fayatteville, N.C., gave $20,000.00 to a political rookie in Northwest Springfield.

Leach also appears to have the same problem delineating 'in kind' contributions and expenses as does Bob Dixon.

Look it up on the MEC website, her MECID # CO91126

Maybe those ethics reformers in Jefferson City ought to make it a part of the package if you can't vote for a person you can't give her money?

$20,000.00 from a Cadillac dealer in North Carolina! Maybe she met him while she was doing fundraising for the republicans? Maybe they used to date? Maybe he likes her? Maybe it's her brother? Or did he give her twenty grand because she's a teabagger?

The appropriate discription may be that she bags tea with an auto dealer.

I say she can't be taken seriously until she repays the public for the food stamps.

Until then she is just another welfare mom.

I can't vote for her, so I guess I can't say anything about what I think is going on here....
Maybe a little hanky-panky on the side?????

from: A Poor Country Farmer who would like $20K to use to run for some thing, don't know what yet.

a low life welfare mom who I guarantee is not TAXED ENOUGH. She doesn't pay taxes, we pay for her and her litters.

I would say that you might want to meet her in person before passing judgement. But you can do whatever you like.

Can anyone say "unethical?" Must have got the contact through her job!
