Ed Perlmutter released his first campaign ad yesterday, using two Republicans Chad and Deanne Stodden who support him because he did his job as a Congressman, helping line up a passport for a military wife. The problem is a review of these Republicans donation records reveal them to be anything but.
According to the Secretary of States website, Deanne Stodden has made three donations to Colorado candidates all Democrats. She donated $500 to Bill Ritter in 2009 and a total of $1500 to Tom Mowles in two donations in 2010, who was a Democrat public trustee candidate in Colorado Springs. Not a single donation to a Republican.
It makes sense why Deanne would donate to a public trustee, as she happens to be a managing partner at Castle Stawiarski, a law firm The Denver Post reports dominates the foreclosure business in Colorado. Public trustees are in charge of managing the foreclosure process and The Denver Post has reported on the shady financial connections between public trustees and Castle Stawiarski.
The firm also happens to be the third largest donor to Perlmutters entire Congressional career, giving almost $100,000 to his campaigns since 2006, according to OpenSecrets.org.
Its become a common tactic this cycle for Democrats to claim the support of Republicans in their campaign ads. Barack Obama did it with two Colorado women who turned out to not have been registered as Republicans and whose Facebook pages were chock full of liberal leanings.
Maybe before the press dutifully reports on this bipartisan BS they should check the facts. Republicans these folks are not.

Senator Graham mentioned on Greta that he too is supporting a Democrat running for Congress. (subject to correction)
No surprise there.
