AT & T throws 'Exclusive Party' For Blue Dog Dems Who Helped Pass Retroactive immunity


thinkprogress.org

On Monday, AT&T threw an exclusive party for the Blue Dogs, the House’s moderate and conservative Democrats, at the historic Mile High Station in downtown Denver. Among the guests was House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., who in June led Blue Dogs in crafting a compromise bill that shielded telecommunications companies from lawsuits arising from the government’s terrorism-era warrantless eavesdropping.

Aww, ain't that just grand.

More "in-our-faces", blatant back-scratching of croneyism criminality, between corrupt cohorts.

Wine and dine them AT & T, and enjoy all those perks of screwing over the citizens of this nation, two-party crime family! YAY!


Leading the Blue Dog Democrats, Hoyer was “the point man” in negotiations over the new FISA law that Congress passed and Bush signed last month. He helped secure retroactive immunity for the telecommunications companies (including AT&T), thereby condoning their participation in Bush’s illegal spying program.

Was the cheif "blue dog" Barack Obama in attendance, or did AT&T compensate him more directly through a campaign contribution for his "yea" vote on FISA?

DAMN! That's why there's no Coke and Hookers left in Denver...

Life really does imitate art and politicians really are just like those old woodcuts of the pigs in top hats at the trough. Somebody needs to keep score of all this and make sure the public remembers come election day.

Good question.

This entire "scratch each other's backs, cover each other's tracks" routine that is so grotesquely over-apparent with all of these people is completely nauseating. And it's just business as usual----This "change" theme that's being tossed around would be laughable if it weren't so concurrently sickening of what a totally farcical bamboozling of the sheeple populace it is. 4 more years of businass as usual, courtesy of Corpo-EliteVille...
