HARTFORD, Conn. – A week after Republican Mark Greenberg called on U.S. Rep. Elizabeth Esty to limit the amount of outside spending on their race, a good government group called on her to do the same.

But Esty still isn’t interested.

About a week ago, she rejected Greenberg’s offer to limit the role of outside spending and on Friday, Common Cause of Connecticut encouraged Esty rethink her decision and negotiate a pledge with her Republican opponent to reduce outside spending in the race.

“Common Cause Connecticut appreciates Mark Greenberg calling for a People’s Pledge in Connecticut’s 5th Congressional District race,” Cheri Quickmire, executive director of Common Cause in Connecticut, said. “We encourage Congresswoman Esty to negotiate a pledge with Mr. Greenberg to reduce the role of outside spending in the race.”

    Elizabeth Esty was a breath of fresh air when she first ran for Congress and held out the hope of having someone in Congress who would be better than just a party hack. But now she’s just another one of the lemmings responsible for the dysfunction in Washington.
