|NRA Blood Money|
At least we know there are progressives out there that are fighting the National Rifle Assn. and its underhanded tactics. Brown University student Sam Bell dug up enough dirt on the NRA that the organization was charged with the state of Rhode Island’s second-largest campaign finance violation. The group of gun nuts paid $63,000, actually a drop in the bucket for the organization. It was a classic investigation by Bell of following the money which the NRA illegally channeled from one its PACS to another PAC. This 24-year-old grad student took it upon himself to nose into politics and ferret out conservative wrong-doing. I wonder how many Sam Bells there are around the country? If progressives are going to turn the tide in 2014 and 2016, we’d better find them wherever they are.
