Mowen's money

Jim Mowen, one of the three R's who want to take on Lane Evans for the 17th Congressional District seat, has filed his year-end money report with the Federal Election Commission.

He had $20,919.34 on hand at year-end, after taking in $20,570 and spending $43,531.89 in the last quarter of 2005. Andrea Zinga, who filed earlier, had $3,657.29 on hand at year-end. Still no report from third candidate Brian Gilliland.

Rep. Evans hasn't filed yet. The year-end report is due by tomorrow.

Interesting, the reaonable thinking is that Lane evans is so strong in Rock Island County/ the 17th District. Mr. Evans FEC report indicates that he raised exactly $1,260.00 from inside the District - while mowen raised $18,820.00. Makes one wonder who Mr. Evans really represents?

Well Mowen has money and he thinks God talks to him and since his little young son told him to run for the job that means he's got divine intervention going or something... I think Mowen needs to keep his day job and forget about running for Congress. Gilligan or Zinga will win not Mowen. Besides Mowen, remember that you backward men of your mindset should know that women never vote for the bald guy.....sorry.

We surely don't need more right wing fundamentalists like Mowen blocking out women's choice issues and other civil rights.

I am for Lane Evans all the way!!

I know Mr. Mowen - and I don't believe that his going to church makes him a 'right wing fundamentalist.'

Also, you speak of 'choice.' What 'choice' are you speaking of? Lane Evans voted AGAINST the ban on Partial Birth Abortion (for someone that might not know - this is the procedure of killing a baby as it is being born, yes, all the way up to 9-months!).

If this is the 'choice' - that you desire...certainly, lane is your man.
