Republican moneybags Lee Beaman has donated to numerous horrible political efforts over the years — the Swift Boat Veterans For Truth and the racist English-Only effort come to mind. He’s also shockingly anti-gay, leading the charge against Nashville’s anti-discrimination ordinance, which is surprising considering some rumors I heard about some parties a few years ago. Rumors, hey, they can be wrong. Or not. Let’s just leave it at that.
So it’s no shocker to read that he’s contributing to the Koch Bros.’ Americans For Prosperity.
No, I’m not shocked, but I am outraged. Thank goodness I don’t own my Toyota anymore. But when I did, I found I enjoyed the service at Franklin’s Alexander Toyota much more. I don’t know what Dane Alexander’s politics are — he’s probably a Republican, aren’t they all? I really don’t care. As long as he’s not funneling millions of dollars to poisonous right wing extremists like the Swift Boat Veterans, English Only, and Americans For Prosperity, I could care less.
Boycott Lea Beaman. I’ve been doing it for years. Starve the beast.
