From what I understand, the cost will be $500k. I guess it's up to the individual to determine if that's a lot or not.

There is quite a bit of mixed up assumptions within this statement. Davis ran as a Democrat on 2 separate occasions for the exact same seat. He was actively recruited by Democrats to run as a "tea party" candidate.I also questioned the assertion that Jack Davis was a "fake" Tea Party candidate. If you ask me, the Republicans have completely hijacked the Tea Party movement.
Most of the ideas and concepts within the tea party are libertarian and conservative in nature, their ideology doesnt match well with current Democrat thinking.
Lastly, the GOP has not hijacked the Tea Party, the Tea Party is in the process of hijacking the GOP. The GOP establishment is just as threatened by various endorsed Tea Party candidates as the Democrats are. The Tea Party is holding the GOP accountable more than any other group through serious primary competition.
As to the rest, its not illegal but its damn sure unethical.

He gave Hochul the race more or less. Oh, yeah he took campaign contributions from Obama and Rangel. Still think hes got any serious links to the GOP? Geesh.

There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
Unions now encouraging the democrats to run fake republicans in the republican primary.

I still don't see an issue with it. However, I guess the union supporters that thought it was just terrible when the republicans were doing this will now think the unions are a bunch of a-holes for engaging in the same behaviour, regardless the justification provided.

SO: of the three famous "legs of the stool" of modern conservatism: economic libertarianism, social conservatism, and foreign policy hawkishness - Davis was against all three.
the man was a Democrat. and it was wrong of him to run as a fake tea party candidate just as it is wrong of any republicans to run as fake democrats.
and he didn't "run on the Tea Party Ticket" - all the tea party organizations in that area said that they'd never heard of him, never seen him, and didn't endorse him.
