Tommy Wells, Ward 6 Council member and D.C. mayoral candidate, said he's hoping to raise $1 million for his campaign, but that he won't accept anonymous contributions. "If there's not a name on the check...I don't want that donation," he said. Wells said he thinks D.C. citizens will donate to his campaign because they agree with his agenda to "clean up politics in D.C., to clean up the pay-to-play that's currently going on in our government." He added that while money can garner influence, it can't buy a legislative seat.
