As we all know, the concern trolls are out in force, having the vapors that Democrats dare make an issue of the foreign donor Chamber of Commerce controversy. I have three words for them:
Dubai Ports World
The Dubai Ports World ("DPW") controversy erupted in 2006, after revelations that the Dubai entity would manage facilities in 16 major U.S. ports.
The opposition was bipartisan -- Sen. Schumer brought it to national attention, but also opposed were parties as disparate as The New York Times, Michael Savage, The John Birch Society and Senators Clinton and Obama. (David Broder must have been orgiastic.)
Well, TP reports that TAIB Bank of Dubai is apparently a $20,000 member of a CoC business council. Those and other foreign funds contribute to attack ads all over the U.S.
Dubai should not have control of either our ports or our elections.
