Do We Encourage Tigers to Change Their Stripes?

War on Guns doesn’t seem too happy about PVF donating to the campaign of Tim Johnson.  Quite possibly, in consideration of the fact that he signed onto the Congressional amicus brief on the side of Heller, this donation could be seen as an encouragement for Johnson to be more pro-gun.  Given that it’s exceedingly difficult to oust an incumbent, I can’t say I have any problem with doing stuff like this.  Influence can be bought, as we saw yesterday.  Politics is not a clean or honorable game, and if $2500 bucks is enough to convince Johnson to go from a C+ record to a B record, I consider that money well spent.  Don’t be surprised if PVF also donates to his opponents campaign.  That’s common practice among PACs as well.

    $2500 for a statewide candidate is not a big deal.

    The max contribution from a PAC is $5000 per candidate, so they gave him half of the max.
