Apparently you have been reclassified by McKenna as the breakfast of champions!
How much do bus, train, and tram car manufacturers donate to Democrats?
At least there's the hope that we'll elect a Governor who will end the War on Cars and turn "transit" back into Transportation.
There. I saved your life twice in one day. You're welcome. Again.
Rob McKenna was in Uriah Heep?
Is he the one in brown velvet jacket:
Talk about missing the forest for the trees. Who else has given McKenna FAR FAR more money--real money, not a stupid fucking Civic? You won't find that story here.
if only it were possible for Goldy to be more of a partisan hack than he already is that might be intriguing.....
@14... Interesting point about income tax. Were a dealer to smartly lend me a free car, I would have to pay income tax on the fair market value of the lease. But McKenna does not pay income tax on it, because it is a campaign contribution, even though, again, I'd wager the car is most driven for personal use. I mean, it wouldn't make sense for him to pay his share to keep this car, and then only drive it to and from campaign events.
@6 HA! $6 billion? You're cute. Ever heard of the Big Dig in Boston? There's no way in hell you guys are getting out of this with a bill under $10 Billion. Likely closer to $20 billion.
Root @13: The Consumer Protection Act (which McKenna is obligated to enforce) applies to unfair methods of competition and unfair or deceptive acts or practices in the conduct of any trade or commerce, not just automobile sales. Under your standard, the AG would not be able to accept a campaign contribution from anyone.
Go ahead and argue that the AG should not use campaign assets for personal use or accept campaign contributions from anyone engaged in trade or commerce, but why get hung up about--again--a stupid fucking Civic. You're missing the big picture.
