The Campaign For DA

It (Was) Your Money


Channel 5 had a story tonight on the Texas State Troopers Association which solicits funds from the public - normally by telephone.

Of the $3.7 million donated annually, less than $100,000 goes to the troopers. Shockingly, $3 million of that goes to "fundraising." That is, the telemarketers themselves.

Oddly, some guy name Tom Vinger of DPS said, "DPS does not endorse these associations. They operate separately . . . ."

What a scam.
