Ah, the things you do when you’re days away from an election. Like, you know, after you’ve spent over a year running as a “businessman” as your credential, but then decide the Chamber of Commerce has to be your enemy. Well, maybe they decided that when they endorsed the other guy, but anyway….
Rick Allen – Businessman, has decided the US Chamber of Commerce is an evil pro-amnesty group. From his press release:
Pro-Amnesty, Pro-Stimulus Group Enters Fray for Friend Barrow
— U.S. Chamber Fights for Barrow’s Continued Corporate Welfare Largesse —
AUGUSTA, GA – The U.S. Chamber entered the ad war today becoming the latest Washington Group to try and save John Barrow’s flailing campaign for a 6th term in Congress. The Chamber is fighting for a continuation of corporate welfare plans supported by Barrow.
“John Barrow is a trial lawyer and professional politician who has never created a job in his life but that’s just fine with the Chamber which wants more taxpayer handouts and amnesty for illegal immigrants and sees a fellow traveler in John Barrow,” said Allen spokesman Dan McLagan. “While Congressman Barrow runs an attack ad lying about Rick’s immigration stance, he has accepted $250,000 from the U.S. Chamber which is an outspoken proponent of amnesty. Which side of the immigration issue is Congressman Barrow on?”
So….vote for the businessman who hates the organization of business people. Or something.
