Kelda Helen Roys Breaks Promise Early in 2nd Dist Cong Race

Here you go, Kelda Helen Roys
- Don't worry, it's clean :)

Kelda Helen Roys is making a mockery of her pledge to avoid corporate money

Typically, it takes a politician some time in D.C. or in the Republican Party before she learns to obfuscate and mislead—what most of us call lying.

But Kelda Helen Roys, candidate for the second congressional district of Wisconsin, is evidently a quick study.

Roys said she has a unique approach to politics and campaigns, toting a pledge not to take corporate money.

"I made the commitment that I am not going to take any corporate money in this race," said Roys in a December 2011 interview with WISN, a promise repeated often by Roys.

But a review of Roys' contributors reveals some $9,700 in corporate money received in late 2011- early 2012, money from corporate CEOs, presidents, and board chairs with the means and history of contributing repeatedly - with an individual limit of $2,500 for 2011-12.

Nothing wrong with running a corporation in itself.

Money for nothing, assures candidate,

But rank hypocrisy has a particular odor coming from democrats like Roys.

Roys is making a mockery of her pledge to avoid corporate money because of her concern that she run a "clean campaign" vis a vis her opponents. Right.

Yesterday, Roys—who was against corporate money before she was for it—put up a new piece on her website, Clean Campaigns Mean No Corporate PAC Money. Translated, this means corporate money from corporate CEOs, presidents, and Board chairs, and lobbyists are just fine with Kelda Helen Roys, just not corporate PACs.

Exactly, how insulated does Roys believe corporate CEOs and board chairs are from their PACs?
