The Dean reports that candidates failed to report 181 PAC and corporate contributions:
House Republican Chairman Glen Casada, sponsor of a bill that critics say would undermine the present law, was found to have two unreported $1,000 contributions from political action committees. House Democratic Caucus Chairman Mike Turner, who staunchly opposed the bill, had more unreported donations than anyone on the list — 18 totaling $19,875.
So Lamar Alexander keeps comparing this Obamacare thing to Iran-Contra:
Host Greta Van Susteren took pains not to quibble with the senator, though she couldn’t help herself from pointing out one detail.
“I would say Iran-Contra involved deaths. It’s a little bit different than here, umm,” she said.
Ah, yes, the deaths thing. That does seem significant.
At least twice in the nearly five-minute interview, Van Susteren suggested the Iran-Contra scandal stemmed from the fact that Oliver North had sold arms secretly to the Islamic Republic of Iran and used the money to fund fighters in Central America linked to death squads.
But Alexander didn’t back away from the comparison.
“The principle’s the same,” he insisted.
Rep. Cooper isn't so sure federal money is going to be there for the bus rapid transit project Mayor Karl Dean wants to build. And there's a new opposition group.
“I think his view is that right now with sequestration going on, and until we strike some sort of grand bargain on the deficit, there’s just not a whole lot of extra money floating around out there for projects like this,” Hill said.
Is Kane the wrestler going to challenge Lamar the senator?
Still pure rumor mill for now, but sources close to the one-time World Heavyweight Champion World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) superstar (among many other wrestling honors) who goes by the name "Kane" tell me that Glenn Jacobs (Kane's legal name) is "open to the possibility of considering a primary campaign against Sen. Lamar Alexander" for the Tennessee Senate seat Lamar! has held since 2003.
