Well, isn’t this just lovely?
[John] McCain is the headline attraction at Monday night’s fundraiser for [Patrick] Murray, a former U.S. Army colonel now mounting a long-shot bid to unseat Rep. James P. Moran Jr. (D). The event will be held at the Alexandria home of Susan and David Hirschmann. Susan Hirschmann is a lobbyist with Williams & Jensen who served as top aide to Rep. Tom DeLay (R-Texas) when DeLay was House Majority Whip, while David Hirschmann is a senior vice president at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
The host committee also includes Charlie Black, a former McCain presidential campaign adviser and head of the lobbying form Prime Policy Group; Altria lobbyist Bruce Gates and his wife Joyce Gates, a former chief of staff to current House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio)
If you need a reminder of what an corrupt slimeball Tom DeLay was, click here. As for John BONEr, see here for how he is “tightly bound to lobbyists.” And Patrick Murray seriously thinks this is going to play in liberal, good-government Arlington and Alexandria? I mean, hell, why don’t Republicans just nominate Tom DeLay himself, the guy lives in Alexandria after all?
