Dad shakes the money tree for his son?

I guess it must be nice to have friends in high places...the following email was sent by former State Rep-turned lobbyist Vin Roberti in regards to his son, Dan Roberti.

Date: Aug 6, 2012 6:14 PM

Subject: A little help....but very important

Dear Friends:

Most of you know that my son, Dan Roberti, has been engaged in a race for Connecticut's Fifth Congressional District for over 18 months now. This is the path he's chosen, and as his father I feel compelled to support him. With only 10 days to go to the Democratic primary, Dan has pulled ahead in the polls and has a clear shot to win.  First, I'd like to thank all of you who have helped Dan get to this point. Your support means a lot to me.

In order for Dan to win on primary day, we need your help. We need people to come to Connecticut to work the polls, knock on doors and assist with the campaign's get out the vote efforts. I'm the first to admit that I'm a groveling dad, but we need your help.  If you can join our efforts, please "reply all" to this email and let us know what you can do. We can follow up with specific information about what Dan needs on election day and this coming weekend.

If you can't help on or around election day (August 14th) then please consider going online to contribute to the campaign at www.danroberti.com/contribute.  As you can imagine, the nasty attack ads have started and will only continue to get worse. They're even making a false claim that Dan is a "lobbyist". You all know that Dan has never been a lobbyist and has instead devoted his life to community service from running a homeless shelter, assisting out of work veterans to helping rebuild New Orleans after Katrina. But,  without financial support from all of you, Dan won't be able to defend himself and get his message out between now and election day.

Again, thanks for your friendship and your continued support. Your help won't be forgotten.

Sincerely,

Vin Roberti

Days later...
