Beer, smokes, and soft drinks: a quick glance at Michele Bachmann's donors
Apparently, the lobbyists in the tobacco, liquor, and soft-drink industries are counting on Michele Bachmann to carry their water (or liquor) if she is elected to Congress.
According to FEC reports, Bachmann has received $10,000 from the National Beer Wholesalers Association of America.
She has also received $1,000 from the tobacco company R. J. Reynolds' PAC, and another $500 from the Lorillard Tobacco Company PAC.
Bachmann accepted $500 from the Pepsi-Co's "Concerned Citizens' Fund," and another $1,000 from the lobbying arm of the soft-drink manufacturers' lobbying group, the American Beverage Association (formerly the National Soft Drink Association.)
Draw your own conclusions about who Michele Bachmann will be working for in Congress: the health of American citizens, or the health of the tobacco, liquor, and soft drink industries?
