The

Committee to Stop a Bad Cure

— the anti-health tax group headed by former Star reporter

Jim Fitzpatrick

— has raised $8,591 for its campaign through Oct. 24, according to its eight-day-before-election report.

A little less than half — $3,750 — came from Fr.

John Wandless

Urban Ranger Corps

Fitz spent some of his campaign funds on an ad or ads with the Kansas City Star, showing his usual good judgment.
