In fact these groups are accusing Knox of being a ringleader in th kind of "pay to play" politics he has sworn to fight against if elected. See what the real story is by both contacting Knox' cmapaign and attending a Knox rally where the protetors who heckle him on aregular basis are sure to be in attendance, then ask them what proof they have of their allegations against Knox.  or contact his campaign people in person at one of Knox's headquarters at Broad and Girard
