Why are we vulnerable to con like this?
Some of the nation’s biggest businesses, including Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, Reynolds, Altria, MillerCoors, Coca-Cola, Zurich Financial, UPS and Google supply the dollars to his campaign. They’ve given him dozens of flights on corporate jets, dozens of stays at luxury resorts and waterfront bashes. He’s raised $36 million for Republicans recently, more than almost anyone else. Thereby, his rise. Thereby, his binding.
After new ethics rules, he’s forced to hide his perks in a political action committee.
In the last 18 months, it has spent at least $67,000 at the Ritz-Carlton Naples in Florida, at least $20,000 at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Virginia, and at least $29,000 at the Muirfield Village Golf Club in Ohio. $116,000. Golfing.
Palming is his scoring.
In public, he brushes it off. “I get lobbied every day by somebody. It could be by my wife. It could be the bellman. It goes on all day, everyday, everyplace.” He said he had broken no rules and was simply assisting his lobbyist friends. Or his wife, sure, or various hotel staff.
What’s Republican fraud?
Vote John A. Boehner. Get more than 100 industry lobbyists.
That’s Republican fraud.
Our media favors this charade; never tapes his days with lobbyists; always hosts his lectern and appearances. If Speaker, there’s no chance in hell he’s working for you.
