This from Joe Scarbrough this morning, on Harry Reid’s crusade against the Koch Brothers and their supposed “un-American” and “immoral” spending of money on politics, which Morning Joe decided to delve into, ever thankfully.
Turns out, the Koch Brothers don’t even crack the top five big spenders in politics in 2013-14, according to opensecrets.org. The number one spender? Harry Reid’s “Senate Majority PAC.”
Oh the hypocrisy.
Reid and the progressive left have waged verbal jihad against the libertarian billionaire brothers for over a year, claiming that Koch Industries threatens our sacred democracy with nefarious dark money in effect “buying elections.” One would think if Democrats went all out to impugn the character of a couple of private citizens that they would first be certain to check that the optics were right on their side. But here we have concrete evidence that Reid’s own Senate Majority PAC is the number one spender on politics all the while he and his party devote hours of air time and gallons of ink to crying about the urgent need to get money out of politics.
Yet another piece of evidence that progressives are at root nothing more than hypocrites and liars.
