So, a while back the Times Union strongly (and in my opinion, wrongly) criticized Elliot Spitzer for his campaign's agressive fundraising. His campaign is trying to raise enough money to scare off primary challengers. The Times Union said his campaign needed to "get a grip". Well, I strongly disagreed with them and pointed out at the time that Mayor Jennings was following the same strategy and also pointed out that it was exactly what the Mayor should be doing. I'm sticking by my argument. All I ask is that the TU writes an editorial strongly criticizing Mayor Jennings for the following comment "If I have to I'll raise a million dollars" when there are no current challengers for his office. I'm sure that will be in tomorrow's paper.
