Chamber of Commerce CEO Tom Donohue is a wanted man -- at least according to the liberal activist group that's put a de facto bounty on his head.
A network of liberal groups known as Velvet Revolution started an ad campaign offering $200,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the man whose trade organization has become a thorn in the side of the Obama administration and congressional Democrats.
The group is not leveling any specific charges of criminal behavior. Rather, it is casting a wide net, fishing for any whistleblowers from Donohue's past who might come forward with allegations of wrongdoing. The campaign against the Chamber was launched in response to the group's opposition to climate change legislation and health care reform, and its plan to spend $100 million lobbying against these and other initiatives.
The fact that this group calls itself the Velvet Revolution is somewhat insulting in itself, to the memory of the actual Velvet Revolution.

You beat me to this one. I thought I'd misread it, the first time. This reeks of George Soros, doesn't it? Freedom of speech, unless you say something we don't like. Disgusting.
By visiting Ukraine, George Soros gave the start to the presidential election campaign in this country. Soros and the politicians close to him demonstrated their intention to conduct one more “velvet revolution”. Ukrainian authorities frustrated the oligarch a little by ruining his expensive suit. Russia is the next to act. If Russia keeps silence, “velvet revolution’ in Ukraine is inevitable. We can have one more “velvet state” on our border, and its government will get their salaries from Soros.
