Why Is Jennifer Brunner Attending A Fundraiser for a GOP Judge?
A long time ago in a place far, far, away, Jennifer Brunner ran in the U.S. Senate primary in 2010 against Lee Fisher, billing herself as the progressive alternative to Fisher. She started the "Courage PAC" to further her fight for progressive values after that candidacy failed. If memory serves, this blogger was villifed for his support of Fisher.
Fast forward to present day. Jennifer Brunner will be in Youngstown this Friday night, attending a fundraisrer for 7th District Court of Appeals Judge Mary DeGenaro. Who is Mary DeGenaro? Don't worry, I've got a picture!
Wait, who's that guy standing next to her? Could it be...Ohio GOP Chairman Kevin DeWine?
Why in the world is Jennifer Brunner attending a fundraiser for a GOP judge? A GOP judge who took $2,000 from Massey Energy's PAC in 2007, shortly after an explosion at the firm's Crandall Canyon coal mine in Utah left six miners emtombed in the mine forever. It's beyond me. I've asked her on Twitter, if I get a reply I will post it here.
