8 Bucks & Special Interest Money - the Joe Fierro Campaign

Like many of you, I loves me some Whataburger.

I like the #1 with double cheese, green chile, whatasized with a Dr Pepper. Man you put that together with some hot fries and some of their spicy ketchup and that is my version of heaven.

And it costs about 8 bucks.

Well it turns out State Board of Education candidate Joe Fierro raised just enough money by himself to buy the aforementioned combo at Whataburger.

That's not an exaggeration by the way, he only raised $8 of his own money. As you can see from this screen shot of his finance report. Click here to see the whole thing, although the screen shots basically are the whole thing.

The rest of his money, which I mentioned yesterday was something to be concerned about, comes from the TER, Texans for Education Reform.

And by rest of his money, I mean $15,000.

Someone with no education experience being funded to that extreme, although its in-kind, should draw major red flags. Why would a special interest group go so big for a candidate that didn't raise enough money for two combos at Whataburger himself and has no experience in education?

He ought to, at the very least, be able to answer a substantive question about education.

These are the questions that need to be asked.

If Sean Penn ever finds him.
