Poor Rick

Aww, my local corrupt congress-critter Rick Renzi is having fundraising problems:

WASHINGTON -- Arizona Rep. Rick Renzi's campaign cash is dwindling, giving Democrats more hope that they can take advantage of his legal woes and win his 1st District U.S. House seat.

Renzi, whose family business was raided by the FBI last April, ended the last quarter with $20,418 in the bank, according to campaign finance reports covering April 1-June 30. That is just a fourth of the $80,000 he had on hand at the end of the first three months of the year and a fraction of the money he has raised in previous years.

The report, filed Sunday with the Federal Election Commission, shows Renzi has spent $126,388 and owes $456,024.http://kvoa.com/Global/story.asp?S=6795846

I guess it's harder to solicit bribes after you give up your committee seats:

On the day of the raid, he stepped down temporarily from the House Intelligence Committee. A few days later, he took a leave of absence from the House Financial Services and Natural Resources committees.

I have no sympathy for you, Rick, but I will give you another pig:
