Outside Agitators

In the interest of full disclosure, your humble proprietor has made the following political contributions so far this election cycle: Ruth McClung (Arizona's 7th CD), Sean Bielat (Massachusetts 4th CD), and Christine O'Donnell (Delaware Senate). I don't live in any of those places. Plainly, we think that there's nothing wrong with folks who can't vote for you nevertheless being interested in your election.

But comes now the news that Jim Oberstar (Minn. 8) has so far received exactly one contribution ($500) from someone living in his district. His other contributors include political action committees, Indian tribes and individuals from other districts and states. How can a guy be in Congress for 36 years and be without buddies amongst his homies?
