Yesterday, Scott Brown announced he would vote against the Democrats’ thinly veiled attempt to influence the midterm elections in the name of the Disclose Act. John Kerry, the Fredo Corleone of the Massachusetts Senate delegation, begged the Tea Party and GOP to go along with the scam.
“In the year of the Tea Party, when the Tea Party is asking for accountability and the Tea Party is asking for sunshine and they want reform, I’d like to hear the Tea Party stand up today and say, ‘Republicans ought to vote overwhelmingly to have sunshine shine in on the funding process of our campaigns,’” Kerry said in a speech on the Senate floor. “I would think that the Tea Party ought to be excoriated over the notion that a corporation has been given the same rights as the Constitution gives to an individual.”
Senator Scott Brown criticized the bill, and Democrats for trying to move forward with it.
“Americans, especially those looking for work, want this Congress and this administration focused on job creation and getting the economy back on track,” the Massachusetts Republican said in a statement. “Putting people back to work should be our number one priority, not pushing through a wildly unpopular campaign bill that gives a tactical advantage to the majority party in future elections.”
Poor Fredo. Michael has spoken. Now go entertain some of your senator friends in Cuba.
Update: Disclose Is Dead…for now. Even the Maine Twins saw this bill for what it is.
