She's may be the most socially conservative representative in the state legislature. Representative Rachel Burgin is running for state senate as a moral leader, and a political outsider.
But when her campaign looked doomed, it was the insiders who came to her aid. A political committee started by a lobbyist and funded by special interests, mailed out a flier about Burgin's primary opponent, shining light on his divorce and asking "Three women in 10 years, are these the family values of the Republican Party?"
Many political committees don't have to report contributions until after the election, but Dan Krassner with Integrity Florida is trying to follow the campaign cash. Krassner is pushing for finance reform. He wants all committee contributions posted online within a 48 hour period.
