Donnie Bell: Mississippi's Judas

There's a new website out there, Mississippi Judas, that gets after Rep. Donnie Bell for swithing parties. The interesting stuff? The part about the money, of course:
In 2011, Donnie Bell ran for reelection as a Democrat. 
He raised more than $31,000 from people who took him at his word that he was a Democrat.  In addition, other groups spent more than $10,000 on his behalf in independent expenditures because he claimed to be a Democrat. Donnie Bell used the Democratic Party to help him win with 59% of the vote.
Wonder if Rep. Bell's going to be able to pay that money back when folks come asking for refunds....
