Chamber of Commerce uses foreign money to buy attack ads against democrats: Billy's new BFF doesn't answer questions either.

This is important because Think Progress is reporting the Chamber of Commerce (which endorsed Roy Blunt) is using foreign money to buy political ads.

1) The Chamber acknowledges that it receives foreign sources of funding.

2) The foreign funds go directly into the Chamber’s general 501(c)(6) entity.

3) At least $300,000 has been channeled from foreign companies in India and Bahrain to the account.

4) The foreign sources include foreign state-owned companies, including the State Bank of India and the Bahrain Petroleum Company.

5) The Chamber’s 501(c)(6) entity is used to launch an unprecedented $75 million partisan attack ad campaign against Democrats.

This is scary stuff. Read more here.

WTF is Pink Progress?

The reason I can't ever be a politician is that I would have answered 'pinky' with a right hook.
