A TN GOP candidate got some $$ from an alleged wanna-be Internet porn star

Over the weekend - as local media scrambled to cover the scandal involving Sara Evans and her soon-to-be ex-husband Craig Schelske - state GOP party honcho Chris Devaney was quoted in the Tennessean as saying that Schelske's conservative political PAC had made no contributions to the state party.
What Devaney failed to mention - a mere oversight perhaps - is that according to the FEC's online campaign finance disclosures, as recent as March of this year, Craig PAC - headed by the alleged wanna-be Internet porn star - had made two contributions totaling $4,200 to the failed senate bid of GOP candidate Ed Bryant.
Does anyone care? Probably not since Bryant is yesterday's news.
But I find this information to be important if we are to understand the influence this dude was trying to have on our state's political landscape.

"A TN GOP candidate got some $$ from an alleged wanna-be Internet porn star"

As opposed to a TN Dem candidate who got some $$ from the actual porn industry (Harold Ford, Jr.).

But I find this information to be important if we are to understand the influence this dude was trying to have on our state's political landscape.

Influence? Ford has received 63% of all his contributions from out of state, but you're harping on this guy from Oregon who contributed to one candidate. How about some consistency? Have you delved into the private lives of individual contributors to Ford and Bredesen?

Let me see if I got this straight: You think that's bad, but one of "Tennessee's top business leaders," (so-described by Bredesen's campaign) gives $55,200 to the governor's campaign and the Tennessee Democratic Party that may well have been stolen from retirees, and their former lobbyist is the governor's campaign treasurur, and you say nada.

Assuming the truth of the allegations (which I'm inclined to do) Mr. Sara Evans was plainly a hypocrite, but that's the only "story" here, unless you have more to back up your insinuations.
