For those who can't see it...imagine Benny Hill meets politician running away from reporters in between talking about lowering the minimum wage and phasing out social security for the next generation of Americans.
It's worth a click.
In other McMahon news, seems Vince McMahon's
Help My Wife's Failing Campaign "Stand Up for the WWE" push is getting a little push back:
Meanwhile, state Democrats are pushing back,questioning whether WWE's corporate campaign to protect and promote its product could constitute "illegal campaign activity'' to benefit the U.S. Senate bid of Republican Linda McMahon, whose built the wrestling empire with her husband, Vince McMahon and who served as company CEO she resigned to run for Senate in September, 2009.
"In the wake of the Supreme Court's Citizen's United case allowing unlimited spending in federal elections, many have feared corporate efforts to undermine our democracy,'' states an email circulated by Hansen. "WWE's comprehensive political campaign, including rapid-response, public relations, organization and activation of grassroots activists, and paid media represents one of the most brazen and overt attempts by a single corporation to influence a single federal election in modern political history.''
Huzzah for the fightin' CT Dems! Here's hoping they keep the heat on through election day.
