Senator Scott Brown: Another Koch whore caught in the act (video)

[tnivideo caption=”climatebrad” credit=”Scott Brown Begs David Koch for Money”]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gnkipn-gJK4[/tnivideo]

Senator Scott Brown (R-MA) surprised Massachusetts and the rest of the US when he won the Senatorial seat formerly held by the Liberal Lion– Senator Edward Kennedy. Recently, Brown was caught on video thanking right-wing billionaire David Koch for his financial support in the last election and asking for more help when he runs for re-election in 2012. In the above video, Koch beams as Brown, who ran as a “different kind of politician” (AKA, not a beltway insider), grovels.

    It wasn’t Ted Kennedy’s seat. It belonged to the people of Massachusetts.

    At least he asked the Hard working man for financial support  instead of taking it like the democrats do through union dues and such.

      Hard working man

      Ha!  While it’s not a crime to be rich, it is not a qualification for sainthood either.  More often than not it has nothing to do with working hard.

    I do believe much attention is being put on these two billionaires who have internationa tentacles which is no doubt one of their methods of avoid taxes and now they see a way to buy government influence they are the money behind the tea party/teapublicans, money has always tried to buy politiicians its the american way, thing is when they get caught the politicians end up in ethics trouble, some in prison and they ought to indict and throw the one doing the bribing in jail as well sends a good message especially if in addition they fine then 100 times what the damaged our economy via corrupting government officials they would see a immediate slowing of these folks buying illegal access to government!

The Tucson Progressive: Pamela Powers Hannley

I stand on the side of Love. I believe in kindness to all creatures on Earth and the inherent self-worth of all individuals--not just people who agree with me or look like me.

Widespread economic and social injustice prompted me to become a candidate for the Arizona House, representing Legislative District 9 in the 2016 election. My platform focuses on economic reforms to grow Arizona's economy, establish a state-based public bank, fix our infrastructure, fully fund public education, growlocal small businesses and community banks, and put people back to work at good-paying jobs. I also stand for equal rights, choice, and paycheck fairness for women. I am running as a progressive and running clean.

My day job is managing editor for the American Journal of Medicine, an academic medicine journal with a worldwide circulation. In addition, my husband and I co-direct Arizonans for a New Economy, Arizona's public banking initiative. I am a member of the national board of the Public Banking Institute, and I am co-chair of the Arizona Democratic Progressive Caucus, the largest caucus of the Arizona Democratic Party.

I am a published author, photographer, videographer, clay artist, mother, nana, and wife. I have a bachelor's degree in journalism from Ohio State University and a masters in public health from the University of Arizona. I grew up in Amherst, Ohio, but I have lived in Tucson, Arizona since 1981. I am a proud member of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Tucson and the Public Relations Society of America.

My Tucson Progressive blog and Facebook page feature large doses of liberal ideas, local, state, and national politics, and random bits of humor. I also blog at Blog for Arizona and the Huffington Post.
