Rep. Long's Personal Contributors

Thanks Joe Baker of the "Newport Daily News" for the article.

Yeah, the Rep. found the paperwork just after Meaghan Wims from Projo called! What luck! Donations - One Middletowner, the second for a year (the other one was his mom).

1. $3,900 in cash contributions of less than $100. Don't believe it. Who???

2. $1,000 John Petrarca of Lincoln - Prov. Auto Body

3. $500 Thomas Casale of Scituate = Casale Auto Body

4. $500 Gregory Gobel of Glocester - Auto Body Concepts
5. $300 Nicholas Rampone of Lincoln - Prov. Auto Body
6. $250 Thomas Hardiman of Foster - Hillview Auto Body
7. $250 David Darlington of North Kingstown - formerly worked in the Guv's office, Chair of Turnpike Authority ($800 since 11/05) Lobbyist for Beacon Mutual receiving $1,000/mo. in compensation ;
8. $200 David Miller of Cumberland - Miller's Auto Body
9. $150 Saverio A. DeRuggiero of Middletown; Yeah, someone in his district. Sal is Chair of the Middletown Republicans

14. $150 Anthony Victoria of North Kingstown - Auto Service Auto Body
15. $933 in-kind contribution from Randy Bottella - Reliable Collision in Cranston, for food he provided for a Long fundraiser almost ($4000 in the past 3 yrs.)
16. $1884 David Reynolds of North Scituate - New Century Auto- for tickets and stationery he provided Long's campaign.

Picking up a pattern here? Why bother with PAC's when you've got auto body owners & sponsor legislation for them. Boo-hoo, the Guv vetoed most. Bruce rec'd appx $1000 in PAC funds, half of that not specified & the largest from the NRA.

Let's see - he beats his wife, cheated on her, has his family living on the dole, is addicted to alcohol & cocaine, recently took his new third wife on a cruise, neglected to file/pay some federal income taxes, and does not live here. Boy, if he ever kills a dog - he's history!
