Christie: Brannon Action Helps No One

Christie Wood (re: Kennedy tab to date: $107,000): I get it that the plaintiffs see this as a challenge of election laws (although I am convinced it is also very personal) but they do have the ability to seek changes through legislative action rather than the courts. So why a new trial? It is hard on everyone involved, so why not work toward clarifying future election laws rather than breaking the bank for Brannon and Kennedy? The people behind this that do not have to foot the bill or have their name constantly in the blogs or other media, ask yourselves…are you really being a good friend to Jim by encouraging him to continue on? Or is this satisfying your own desire to keep going after Kennedy?

Question: Why do you think Brannon is continuing to pursue his election challenge?
