Really? I thought they were very clear on where their funds came from. AFP, through their Wilmington chapter, offered to help them with money after they heard what they were trying to do. AFP paid for their TV ads and some signs. Other than that, they've had many, many local citizens give them money to keep them going. None of that has ever been hidden or denied, so I'm not sure what point you're trying to make?
As to "embarrassing", I certainly didn't find it so. These were just two regular guys, going up against a New York lawyer and a long-time politician. I thought they were sincere, likable, and very believable. I can most definitely not say the same about Mr. O'Grady, nor Mr. Saffo. O'Grady came off as petty, arrogant, and condescending. Saffo was blustering and angry. Not a good look for the two are *supposed* to be professionals.
