Letter: What’s Influencing Paulsen’s Vote?

To the editor:

How much does it cost to buy a vote from Erik Paulsen?

In 2017, Paulsen voted to repeal net neutrality despite overwhelming public support by the American people in favor of keeping it. About 83 percent of Americans believe in keeping net neutrality, including 75 percent of Republicans.

So how much does it cost to buy a vote from Erik Paulsen? Maybe we should ask the telecom companies that had a vested interest in repealing net neutrality. They donated over $50,000 to his campaign.

His opponent, Dean Phillips, believes that money is a corrupting influence in politics, and that’s why he created the Minnesota Way Pledge. The pledge is a promise to reject money from PACs and special interest groups. So far, Paulsen has refused on multiple occasions to take the pledge

In 2018, I’m voting for a leader who will vote for my best interests, not the interests of their big donors.
