Cory Mason Sucks No Koch
Anyhoo, a few days ago a commenter posted a response to the Siren's smack-down of Racine's Koch-whore wannabe, Fred Young and reminded us that Representative Cory Mason was a recipient of some Koch money himself.
And that my friends, is totally true. The JT reported on it as well.
Not the end of the story however...Mason, because he is a hero with a heart of gold and toes made of chocolate, gave the money back. Yep, he turned down money from a couple of the richest men in the world.
Our commenter tipped his hand a bit by:
1. Pointing out that the whole controversy was a bit overblown - which means they really wish we would stop drawing attention to it.
2. The Koch brothers are Liberarians not Republicans - which means even though we all know they donate heavily to Republicans, the GOPers are trying to put a little more distance between them and the controversial billionaires.
3. Mason took money too - which means they know it's tainted and tried to smear the good guy with it too. Which is exactly why he got a check for a couple of bucks in the first place - when the shit hits the fans he's covered in it too.
Nice try fellas. Mason told the Kochs to suck it and that's why he's the Siren's hero today.
