GOP senator Orrin Hatch's charity tied to massive pharmaceutical donations


rawstory.com

Hatch has received more money from the pharmaceutical industry than any other group, raking in $1.25 million since 1998. The latest sums, however, dwarf that of previous donations from individual corporations. In 2007, the foundation received $25,000 from Eli Lilly, $30,000 from Barr Pharmaceuticals, $25,000 from AstraZeneca and $40,000 from PhRMA.

The figures were part of the foundation's tax returns and accidentally released by the Internal Revenue Service to a nonprofit group. As a tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization, Utah Families Foundation isn't required to disclose a donor list.

Awww, ain't that cute---More pocket-greasing and sneaky incognito "pay-offs" to a member of our two-party crime family...

Now WHY would the ever-corrupt and greedy pharmaceutical industry need to pay so much money to a politician and his "charity foundation"?

Could it be for "favorable" reports on some of the garbage medications and their safety standards that they're putting out?

Nah, that would never happen! lol

More slimey behavior between the mega-corps and our bought and paid for "representatives"...

What makes this especially curious is the fact that this individual was the force behind DSHEA which makes dietary supplements more accessible. It has been said that the pharmaceutical corporations have it out for the supplement companies so this kinda flies in the face of certain conspiracy theories regarding their secret agenda to restrict everything down to the most common vitamin like they just did with B6. Hmmm....

Indeed it is curious, but not unexpected. The pharma-giants are some of the most powerful entities on the planet right now, alongside the war-profiteering mega-corps. Sad thing is, all of our "law-makers" are for sale to the highest bidders, and as we see, those bidders rarely if ever have the populace's best interests at heart...
