Candidates should be free to spend their own money

Posted: Tuesday, August 17, 2004

Reference to letters from Sen. Wagoner and Richard Hahn (Aug. 5) and Wagoner's daughter (Aug. 6), I ask you: How do you spend your money?

As long as the money comes from an individual, candidate or otherwise, does it matter? Remember John Lindauer? Ross Perot? Bill Sheffield? Wally Hickel? Each of them spent millions of their own money. So what is the difference?

If I want to buy a Cadillac, and you think I should buy a Kia, and it's my money, I will end up with a Cadillac. Are you going to complain, and to whom?

I don't dictate how you spend your money. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
