In the candidate's own words:

For Rosa, her work has been and will always be about helping people. Since coming to Congress, she has built a reputation as a hard-working, passionate, and forthright advocate for her constituents, an honest broker who works with members of all parties, and a leader on matters of domestic and social policy. She has helped improve schools, bring tax relief to middle-class families, protect employee pensions, and encourage job creation in Connecticut.

Rosa collected well over a million dollars this election, the MOST EVER. This is likely her last hurrah, the last time she can rob her supports to enrich herself. Most of this money will be paid to her husband, which in any household means Rosa is paying herself. She is slipping, having to use a binder of notes to give answers to ordinary questions. She is getting tired of being the DNC attack dog, accomplishing nothing legislatively. She will want to retire to her sumptuous villa on the Amalfi Coast. So, this final haul of fat cash will pad her fantastic lifestyle going into retirement. Congratulations to the suckers who contributed: you proved your absolute loyalty to the party machine. But Rosa's cashing out and running with your money to southern Italy. But not before launching a couple of salvoes against her hated enemies... just for old times' sake.

I guess you have a slight bias you first class piece of dog poop. Rosa has done a great job speaking up for the democrats. That is just part of what we voted her in to do and we will again. Thank you Rosa for doing a great job for many years.
