Sen. Detert to AFP: ‘You people serve absolutely no purpose’ | Naked Politics
“I appreciate the mail-outs that you do against me on a monthly basis that say I give money to Hollywood moguls, which, of course, I don’t have any money to give, and neither does the state of Florida give money to Hollywood moguls.
“You’re all on the Koch brothers’ payroll. Good for you. I’m glad you’re all employed … I hope you’re getting paid a lot of money to show up to these meetings and say meaningless things.
“Obviously you’re for prosperity for yourself and not anyone else … You people serve absolutely no purpose.”
I was raised in a wealthy, conservative household. By the time I was old enough to vote, it was clear that the Military Industrial Complex and political protections for polluting industries was driven by rogue Republicans. I became a Democrat. But now Democrats have gone rogue, too; like “my” U.S. Representative, Patrick Murphy.
I’d been in agreement sometimes with Republican former Florida state legislators Mike Fasano, Paula Dockery, and others.
Now I’m in agreement with Nancy Detert, and hope you will be, too. Please share this post, and – if you’re on Twitter – retweet the posts congratulating her on her courage on standing up the couldn’t-be-bigger Big Boyz.
