Rush Limbaugh: Liberal Group Puts Bounty on Commerce Boss

December 8, 2009- RUSH: "Chamber of Commerce CEO Tom Donohue is a wanted man -- at least according to the liberal activist group that's put a de facto bounty on his head.  A network of liberal groups known as Velvet Revolution started an ad campaign offering $200,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the man whose trade organization has become a thorn in the side of the Obama administration and congressional Democrats.  The group is not leveling any specific charges of criminal behavior. Rather, it is casting a wide net, fishing for any whistleblowers from Donohue's past who might come forward with allegations of wrongdoing. ... The Chamber of Commerce, meanwhile, decried the ad campaign and threatened possible legal action.  'The media should be following the money trail behind this scurrilous group instead of giving credence to its outrageous tactics -- and we are considering legal options with the ad,' said the Chamber spokesman." 

The guy that runs this Velvet Revolution, is a guy named Kevin Zeese, and he's described on Wikipedia as an American political activist who's been a leader in the drug policy reform and peace movements and in efforts to insure a voter verified paper audit trail.  He was on the ballot as a nominee of the Maryland Green Party for a US Senate seat during the 2006 election.  He got one-and-a-half percent of the total vote.  Born in New York City in 1955, grew up in Queens, where he attended public school. His younger brother, Kyle, proved to be a huge influence.  He received a bachelor's degree from State University of New York at Buffalo and graduated from George Washington University law school in 1980.  So he's just a typical activist and casting a wide net for any damaging information on the head of the Chamber of Commerce. 

This is not your traditional Republican Party versus Democrat Party political period.  We now have the active attempt to dismantle the capitalist system and to criminalize those who are predominant in the free market, to criminalize their behavior.  You think he's buds with Valerie Jarrett?  Oh, you wonder if he's buds.  Well don't speculate like that and make me say it.  That's why you don't have a microphone.  We don't know that he knows Valerie Jarrett.  You just put it out there and you made me say that he might know Valerie Jarrett.  We don't know that.  I thought you said he did know.  Now, we don't know that he knows Valerie Jarrett.  We don't know that he knows Jeremiah Wright.  We don't know that he knows Tiger Woods.  He could know all three.
