Politicians Are Poody Heads

and they're not the only ones…

Super Pac Man

on May 7, 2012

Thanks to the Supreme Court, we now have the ability to create something called a Super Pac.  That’s the type of organization that pours any amount of money into any election and does so anonymously.   Stephen Colbert has attempted to make a joke out of it by selling a Super Pac Startup Kit in the mail, but he needn’t have bothered.  Josue Larose pretty much has that sewn up.

You probably aren’t familiar with his name, but Larose is famous in certain circles.  He’s the “go to” for right wingers who want to influence elections.  Because of the secrecy surrounding Super Pacs, no one knows exactly how many he’s started up for other people, but it is probably in excess of 600.

Think about that number for a moment.  That’s at least a dozen per state.  Since each Pac can handle unlimited funds, you have to ask yourself, just how much “private” money is he responsible for?  And how much difference does he make, not just in federal elections, but the state, county, and even local ones?  And then ask: how in the world can you fight something like that?

Personally, I don’t have any answers, yet.  If you do, please pass them along so that I can share them with the rest of the country.  It just goes to show you how much difference one Poody Head can make…
