New Hampshire's fat cat problem
In both of New Hampshire's congressional districts, right-wing fat cats continue pouring millions of dollars into smear campaigns against Carol Shea-Porter and Ann McLane Kuster. The spending is staggering. Last week alone, spending against Kuster topped $470,000. Yesterday, the Republican Party announced its pouring in $364,000 more against Shea-Porter. And the third-parties weighing in heavily are a virtual who's who of GOP financiers: from billionaire Koch brothers' Americans for Prosperity, to the ultra-right Family Research Council, and the NFIB.
The Revere America group made headlines this week as the Nashua Telegraph printed a report from FactCheck.org calling the group's ads misleading and full of "speculation masquerading as fact." And yesterday afternoon, the New Hampshire Democratic Party announced they're calling for an investigation into allegations that the group is illegally coordinating with Shea-Porter's opponent.
