Ledbetter gives $25 to Davis


Equal pay activist Lilly Ledbetter not only endorsed U.S. Rep. Artur Davis in his bid for governor, but she told his supporters in a fundraising e-mail on Monday that she also gave $25.
"I was proud to come out and offer my support, but after years of false promises as my employment discrimination suit moved through the courts, I know that actions speak louder than words," she wrote in her e-mail.
Davis, D-Birmingham, has a goal of reaching $25,000 in grassroots donations by Wednesday.
As of 10 a.m. Monday, the campaign had raised $7,210.
Davis is one of nine candidates who have announced they are running for governor.
