St. Louis, MO – A candidate for Dick Gephardt's seat in Congress is offering a money-back guarantee.

Democrat Mariano Favazza says his campaign will refund donations to anyone not satisfied with the job he does in Washington.

He's the current St. Louis City Clerk and one of six Democrats and two Republicans who have announced plans to run for the seat in the Third Congressional District.

Favazza says the money will be returned, no
questions asked. He asks only that donors wait the full two years of the term.

A Federal Election Commission spokesman says the concept apparently violates no campaign contribution laws.
