WI SENATE: BALDWIN TAKES $60K FROM PRO-IRAN GROUP, PLEADS IGNORANCE
Breitbart ^ | 21 Oct 2012 | Staff

Posted on 10/21/2012 11:51:01 AM PDT by Snuph

Tammy Baldwin has come under fire for taking a $60,000 contribution from the Council for Liveable World. In the October 18 debate with Gov. Tommy Thompson, Baldwin went on to deny having any knowledge of the group. The Council is a Pro-Iran operation that opposes sanctions against Iran and supports the current Iranian political regime. The Council’s position on Iran reads:(emphasis added) Unfortunately, United States policy has been to publicly threaten and insult Iran while taking provocative actions such as adopting a policy of regime change, attempting to increase unilateral sanctions, deploying additional military assets in the region, and arresting Iranian representatives in Iraq. Such policies are counterproductive, strengthening Iranian hardliners and weakening the position of anti-nuclear and pro-democracy elements in Iran. Baldwin has been supported by the Council since 1988.

Would this be a Democrat taking money from a pro-Iran group?

At that dollar level, yes.

This legal to do? Isn’t Iran on a banned list for business dealings?

GOOD NEWS CAME OUT TODAY FROM GALLOP! BUT WE CAN'T REST YET!! JUST 15 DAYS TO GO!
We must keep talking to ANY person we know of who is going to vote for Obama. Send them these three videos and ask them to watch and reply. Anyone who watches them and STILL will vote for Obama is a lost cause!!

I don't know how ANY American could listen to these interviews and then STILL vote for Obama!

This would be an outright communist and out lesbian Democrat taking money from a pro-Iran group.

I guess that is redundant.
