Dan Brown, the author who brought us The Da Vinci Code, in his book Deception Point certainly tells some whoppers. Granted Brown is a fiction writer, however, can you image:
1. In the book a business orientated Senator running for President accepted campaign contributions from businessmen. That is just outrageous. Certainly no politician would do that; further
2. Some business men were told "With your help I will soon be in the White House...and you will be launching your dreams." (Page 253); and
3. Despite benefiting from contributions that exceeded the individual contribution limit, the Senator claimed "Perfectly Legal" (Page 332)
4. Brown listed some campaign assistance the Senator received were "upward of half a million dollars." Page 483
What kind of fiction does Dan Brown write? Surely no one would believe business people would make contributions and expect policy changes in return. Further the size of these contributions he described were outlandish.Where is that ban the book committee when you really need it? The American public certainly shouldn't be given the idea our fine upstanding business people would contribute for anything except altruistic reasons.
