Disclosure: I worked for the Lamont campaign doing web design and production and some writing for the official blog (from 9/5/06 to 11/07/06).

Joe Lieberman was for "buying" senate seats before he was against it:

The issue of Mr. Corzine's finances remains salient largely because he continues to spend at an unprecedented pace. After breaking the record for a Senate race by paying out $35 million in the primary, Mr. Corzine has nearly reached the $50 million mark already, The Associated Press reported today....

Mr. Corzine, meanwhile, campaigned today with Senator Joseph I. Lieberman of Connecticut in Union County, Mr. Franks's base, focusing on Vice President Al Gore's proposal for prescription drug benefits under Medicare.

Lieberman Blows Off MoveOn.Org Primary


From a MoveOn.org press release to RAW STORY.

After initially agreeing, Senator Lieberman has declined our invitation to participate in the MoveOn.org Political Action online primary for U.S. Senate in Connecticut.

We invited both candidates to send an e-mail to MoveOn members in Connecticut as part of our endorsement process. When we spoke last Thursday, the Lieberman campaign agreed to submit an e-mail from the Senator or a surrogate as they did during our 2004 online presidential primary. We received notice after 5:00 PM last night that they would not submit an e-mail to MoveOn members for the primary.

The online primary will go forward. We want our members to have the opportunity to hear a case for endorsement from both the Lieberman and Lamont camps, and we hope to provide a stand-in for the senator.
