Remember Jeb Bush? The darling of so many Republicans; at least the donor class? They just got caught taking money from our benevolent trading partner, China.
It’s not easy raising over a hundred million dollars, so you have to take what you can from whoever. I’m just wondering how all these people actually think their hundreds of thousands of dollars could possibly influence a man of such impeccable integrity as Jeb Bush. They are really stupid, throwing their money away like that.
Right to Rise was a PAC set up to raise money to elect Jeb, the third consecutive Republican President from the same immediate family. The chairman was Mike Murphy, the guy who appears as a “Republican consultant” on Meet the Press.
Someone suggested the name came from a scrapped ad slogan for Viagra. This is false. It’s more likely that it was a reference to the unfortunate coincidence that Jeb was the third Bush to aspire toward the Presidency and he too had a perfect right to seek the office.
Update: I’m adding the memo and complaint that was posted in the comment section below.Published in
