Bush Family Continues to Bankroll Mitch McConnell Saturday, Sep 20 2014 

Alison Lundergan Grimes has a new ad out bringing attention, among other things, to a fundraiser Jeb Bush hosted for Mitch McConnell this weekend. That's probably not the first Bush to host a fundraiser for McConnell. Let me explain.


On March 26, 2012, three days before McConnell would filibuster debate about ending fossil fuel subsidies, he raked in $130k from a secret fundraiser in Midland, Texas, where George & Laura incidentally have a home. Since the couple both maxed out their personal contributions to McConnell the same week, it's more likely than not they were involved with hosting the secret Midland event.

Let's not forget, Bush's misguided invasion and occupation of Iraq could not have happened with McConnell's enthusiasm and support. The Bush family, unlike Kentucky, owes McConnell big-time, and not just because he allows the US government to subsidize big oil. McConnell made the Iraq War possible, and for this alone we should be terrified about giving him six more years. Grimes new ad:




Speaking of George W. Bush, his former speechwriter is not only a big McConnell supporter but also a Louisville Courant reader.
