Libertarian Super PAC wants to buy Lil' Fella a seat in the Senate

by: Eric B.

Fri Feb 15, 2013 at 17:45:27 PM EST


All the filthy lucre in Rome couldn't put a shine on this turd.

Liberty for All, a libertarian super PAC, says it’ll put “six to seven figures” behind Justin Amash, should he run for Senate next year.

“If he runs, he can count on six to seven figures,” says Preston Bates, the super PAC’s executive director, in an interview with National Review Online. “He represents a fresh start for a state whose economy has been devastated by sugar-high economics and crony capitalism.”

Well, he also has no statewide appeal whatsoever, and, again, I think that's half the point. He's irritated so many people that they'd like to shuffle him off into a contest that can't be won so it'll kill his political career.

Good. Let them (0.00 / 0)
waste their money.  

Liberty For All bankrolled Kerry Bentivolio, too... (0.00 / 0)
Remember, the seed funding for this particular Super PAC came entirely from one 23-year-old former Texas A&M student spending his grandpappy's inheritance.

OK, he might be 24 now.

Anyway, LFA was the funder of last resort for Ron Paul's followers when they were being manipulated and pushed out of all the Republican state delegations around the time of the RNC Convention in Tampa.

This kid also intervened in, I think, two other House races in 2012 -- both times to unseat a Republican incumbent in favor of a more Libertarian/Tea Party friendly primary challenger.

When it came to Michgan's 11th, once he'd heard of Bentivolio, he leveraged LFA's money (like $500K+) to make sure the "establishment" GOP's attempt to elect Nancy Cassis as a write-in failed.
