All Children Matter and Democratic Candidates Part 2

I think the discussion needs to keep going about All Children Matter. It has come to my attention that some candidates are "claiming" they didn't know All Children Matter would send out mailings for them. If anyone believes that, I have some swamp land to sell them. I have never been a candidate for public office and only heard of ACM about 2 months ago and even I knew they would send mailings out for the candidates who responded to the questionnaire and were "endorsed." The question still remains, why did these candidates even respond?

Let's make up a new scenario. What if Georgia Right to Life sent questionnaires to all candidates who qualified for the state legislature and if they filled them out and interviewed they would get the same support as long as they were "open minded" and let's even go any further if they were open to limitations on abortions. Democrats and Pro-Choice activists would be outraged and the blogosphere would be lit up with the issue.

Although I'm disappointed by incumbents that were supported by the group, I am deeply troubled by new candidates who fell into the trap of bowing to special interests before the polls even close. We must hold our candidates and elected officials accountable for their actions.
