Mr. Eric “Holier than Thou” Cantor isn’t one to limit his dislike of politicians to just those of the Democratic Party. It seems Republicans who put country before party get put his “bucket list” as well. That’s right, Super Pacs are not just for the very wealthy trying to steal elections now members of Congress get to join in the party.. The Hon. Mr. Cantor has contributed $25,000 to the super PAC CPA, Campaign for Primary Accountability, whose primary purpose is to defeating, not only Democratic House incumbents but those Republican House incumbents who do dare to challenge current party line and still maintain a sense of honor.
Here’s part of CPA’s mission statement:
“Citizens from across the political spectrum have come together to level the playing field in primary elections through the Campaign for Primary Accountability’s Equalizer Campaign. The Equalizer Campaign gives voters the facts they need to make informed decisions. Our goal is to bring true competition to our electoral process, to give voters real information about their choices, and to restore fair, not fixed, elections.”
Pants on fire! Pants on fire! According the the NY Times, Leo Linbeck III, a Houston builder who has campaigned against national health care reform; Eric O’Keefe, who helped found U.S. Term Limits; Tim Dunn, chairman of Texans for Fiscal Responsibility; and J. Joe Ricketts, founder of TD Ameritrade, who has crusaded against earmarks and federal spending contribute 95% of the money for the Campaign for Primary Accountability. That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, 4 wealthy donors make up the bulk of the cash this super PAC takes in. Anyone seriously believe these guys give a rat’s rear end about those of us on the lower end of the economic scale? We think not.
