Teachout on the attack

Aims at lobbyists

In a calculated move against John Faso’s support from PACs and PAC-connected lobbyists, Zephyr Teachout released a video on YouTube that shows off her pedagogical talents. She takes aim at Paul Singer, billionaire backer of Republicans in general and John Faso in particular. The latest release is but one of several that tying Faso to his major donors. These donors have no connection to the district.

Her message is simple: our elected representatives should represent the people of the district, not big donors who have interests that they want advanced by Congress, such as the carried interest exception giving hedge fund managers a large tax break. Lookat her videos.
