Spooked Good Ol' Boy Network spends $157,000 to keep DA Jim Martin in power

$157, 356.21 (so far) to be exact [Source: LehighCounty.org, Jim Martin 2011 Campaign Finance Reports]
All this big & greasy Good Ol' Boy money is being frantically spent on Jim Martin campaign signs, TV spots, direct mailers, radio ads, political campaign consulting (although apparently not debate coaching), polling, two campaign events hosted by The Brew Works ($2,248.08) etc., etc., etc., $157,356.21.

W-O-W. For a guy who's being dismissed by DA Jim Martin in Martin's deceit-laden campaign mailers as being "uniquely unqualified" to be Lehigh County District Attorney, the Good Ol' Boy Network sure is spooked by the ED KOREN challenge, eh? $157k-worth (so far) and counting.

That's because Ed Koren is in fact uniquely qualified to be Lehigh County DA and the Good Ol' Boys know it.

Watch the 'haymaker' ED KOREN TV SPOT that has them all a-quiverin' like Jaindl turkeys in October or an ex-Morning Call Editorial Board Czar.

Then read the transparently deceitful diarrhea that's being pooped out by DA Jim Martin lapdog and Morning Call "reporter" Kevin Amerman, what a stench.

And which Good Ol' Boys, specifically, have ponied up the $157,356.21 (and counting) to keep their Good Ol' Boy DA Jim Martin on his (hiccup) throne?

All the usual (vested interest/pay-to-play) suspects.
