How out of touch and hypocritical is Massachusetts Senate Candidate Ed Markey?
SHOT: Ed Markey Compares Campaign Finance Ruling To Decision Upholding Slavery: The Dred Scott decision had to be repealed, we have to repeal Citizens United.”
Statement From NRSC Communications Director Brad Dayspring:
Agree or disagree with federal campaign finance law, it’s ridiculous and offensive to compare it to the horror of slavery. Out-of-touch statements like these simply reinforce the fact that Ed Markey has been hibernating in Washington back rooms since Carlton Fisk was behind the plate for the Red Sox and disco ruled the world. If Ed Markey really believes this to be the modern equivalent to slavery, he’ll quickly return the millions that he’s raised from PACs over his career.
