Do Martha Coakley's allegiances lie with her constituents or these people?

Here are some of Coakley fundraiser hosts with some of their current health care clients:

Thomas Boggs, Patton Boggs: Bristol-Myers Squibb

Chuck Brain, Capitol Hill Strategies: Amgen, BIO, Merck, PhRMA

Susan Brophy, Glover Park Group: Blue Cross, Pfizer

Steven Champlin, Duberstein Group: AHIP, Novartis, Sanofi-Aventis

Licy Do Canto, Raben Group: Amgen

Gerald Cassidy, Cassidy & Associates: U. Mass Memorial Health Care

David Castagnetti, Mehlman, Vogel, Castagnetti: Abbot Labs, AHIP, Astra-Zenaca, General Electric, Humana, Merck, PhRMA.

Heather Podesta, Heather Podesta & Partners: Cigna, Eli Lilly, HealthSouth

Tony Podesta, Podesta Group: Amgen, GE, Merck, Novartis.

Seems she likes to keep good company for people that would like her vote. The Health / Pharm Industry.

Update:

mattapan: she also has ALOT of sympathy for a man who would sexually abuse a 23 month old child...

    If she's a democrat, she's a marxist pig. She will gravitate towards the money for her own personal gains like a whore to a red light.

    Look if you were the 60th vote for health care reform, so-called, you'd be raking in the dough too. That's the way the system is designed to work. It's similar to Senator Mary Landrieu's $300 million fee for her vote in favor of the health care bill and the untold millions for Senator Ben Nelson's Nebraska. It's just that since she isn't already a member of the club they have to help her get elected first before they receive their quid pro quo.

    These donors own Coakley's vote on this bill now, that's how it works. So even if the manner in which tax revenues will be raised under this bill changes in a way that is even more objectionable than they are now, there's nothing she can do. She took their money and she owes them her vote yea or nay. She no longer has any choice in the matter.

    That's what legal corruption in the US Congress looks like.

    I haven't reviewed Scott Brown's leading contributors. I would rather judge Martha Coakley on her record, not just as an assistant district attorney, district attorney and attorney general, but in other aspects of business and life. [crickets]

    And if she doesn't win big with all of these and ACORN and SEIU in there, then she was ineffective. People have to reseach and wonder why big Pharma and Insurance is pumping all of this money into her campaign.

    Brown is getting his money basically from many small contributions by private citizens.

    Maybe Massachussetts is waking up

    Source(s): @mattapan, her record includes keeping and innocent man, Gerald Amerault, in jail for 4 years because it was politically expedient for her. Apart from that she is a dunderhead, nothwithstanding her superior education

    She's a typical Democrat: Whining about the drug companies, while taking donations from them.
