Nominee gets help from senator dad - John Bresnahan - POLITICO.com
Many of our politicians believe political offices they seek are life time jobs for them and handed down to family members. Many are family affairs like: Pelosi, Kennedy, Biden, Clinton, Coakly, Dodd, Bush, Gore, to name but a few. Why do so many spend so much to get elected as mayor, governor, senator, when the pay is relatively low? Mayor Menino, (D) of Boston, is running for a FIFTH term!
Well, not as low paying as the jobs out their for us little people, but you get the point!
