This is a copy of a letter I am sending to Representative Joe Walsh, a freshman Republican and TEA Party stalwart representing the Eighth Congressional District of Illinois. It was inspired by a February 13 Chicago Tribune article detailing the fund raising devotion of freshmen members of the Illinois delegation. It prominently featured the Walsh quote that starts the letter.
This is formatted as a letter to be sent via USPS since the Congressperson refuses to accept e-mail from outside his district.

Hey, Joe, whatcha doin' with that dough in your hand?
"Every single congressman, from the moment they're elected, part of their job is to be as prepared as possible for the next election, and part of that is money. There's nothing dirty, yucky or evil about it. It's part of our job."
