The Cooch (Ken Cucinelli) Partners with the (contraception) Aspirin Between The Leg Guy (Foster Friess)
“You know, back in my days, they used Bayer aspirin for contraception. The gals put it between their knees, and it wasn’t that costly.”
That’s something Foster Friess actually said last year.
And now this year, Ken Cuccinelli is taking his money.
Cuccinelli released his latest fundraising report yesterday, and it’s chock-full of Tea Party super donors, like Friess, whose clear contempt for science and reason is only dwarfed by their dedication to electing a Governor of Virginia who agrees with them.
We can defeat their backwards agenda and overcome the deep pockets of Cuccinelli’s super donors. But we can only do that if we band together.
While Ken Cuccinelli’s accepting checks from anti-science donors like Foster Friess, he’s also trying to paint himself as a mainstream, business-oriented Republican.
I’ll tell you this — business leaders aren’t standing with Ken Cuccinelli. Mainstream Republicans aren’t standing with Ken Cuccinelli.
But Tea Party donors like Foster Friess are lined up, ready to pick up the slack. He’s joining Karl Rove, the Koch Brothers, and a parade of other anti-science, anti-gay, anti-women’s health donors who’ll do whatever it takes to elect a Governor who’s one of them.
Foster Friess’s thoughts on contraception are pretty silly. But the money he spends to elect Tea Party candidates is anything but.
Let’s give them a real fight — thanks for joining in
