Last week, after being a life-long Democrat and serving 7 years as an elected Democrat District Attorney, Cathy

Helms announced she was switching parties after realizing her main opponent would run as a Republican. At the Berrien Republican Party meeting last Saturday, Cathy said she and her husband put their money where their mouth is and that they had donated money to Republicans—she left out the OTHER contributions they’ve made. This is a politically opportunistic move (why switch now when you’ve had 7 years to do so?) – but I’ll let you be the judge of whether you think she’s a true Republican or not. During the time that Cathy Helms has served as District Attorney, she and her husband have donated the following amount of money to the following candidates. Here’s the list: Democrat Office Holders and Candidates: $31,280.69; note: $2,100 to now INDICTED and disgraced presidential candidate John Edwards and $9,100 to defeated candidate Roy Barnes Republican Office Holders and Candidates: $2,450.00; note: 1/2 of which was donated only after the Democrat candidate was defeated in the General Election
