"The Internet economy is revolutionizing the world of campaign fundraising,"
said Chuck Riegel, Executive Vice President for Worldwide Marketing at
CyberCash. "Political Web sites need the same security, speed and reliability as
e-commerce sites and our service is the one that best meets their needs."
Aristotle, a company that provides candidates with Web fundraising tools, is
using CashRegister to power payments for more than 150 candidates in local,

President of E-Commerce at Aristotle. "Security and simplicity are vitally
important, and CyberCash has functioned flawlessly in every case."

money from non-traditional sources and helps demonstrate grassroots support.

us as the market leaders in payment processing for the Internet," Riegel said.
