Tea Party Super PAC Makes Hillary Clinton/Panda Sex Tape

panderingpanda_bigIf that headline didn’t catch your attention, you’re dead inside. Mother Jones reports:

An internal investigation of FreedomWorks—the prominent conservative advocacy group and super-PAC—has focused on presidentMatt Kibbe’s management of the organization, his use of its resources, and a controversial book deal he signed, according to former FreedomWorks officials who have met with the private lawyers conducting the probe. One potential topic for the inquiry is a promotional video produced last year under the supervision of Adam Brandon, executive vice president of the group and a Kibbe loyalist. The video included a scene in which a female intern wearing a panda suit simulates performing oral sex on Hillary Clinton. [Author’s note: The previous sentence contains no typos.]

To be fair, the report goes on to say the main reason we know about this is because people inside Freedom Works were so offended by it. Infighting at the group spurred an internal investigation, revealing the tape. The panda, shown above, had been used before and was an unofficial mascot of sorts for them, and served as an inside joke.

The rest of the story serves as proof of how decadent Tea Party political groups (as opposed the the grassroots groups) had become, using PAC funds for excessive lifestyle purchases, hiring women based on attractiveness, and ‘creating a cult of personality’ around former leaders.

  2. I love your opening line. Fortunately I’m not dead inside.

  3. Here’s some background reporting on FreedomWorks’ recent split with Dick Armey, its ties to the Koch Brothers, and its roots in Ayn Rand libertarianism: http://articles.washingtonpost.com/2012-12-25/politics/36015740_1_freedomworks-tea-party-matt-kibbe

    But the last sentence does.

    Good post, and the more idiotic these groups become, the quicker their demise.

    Isn’t their sign interesting? Stop pandering 2 big labor, but pandering to the wealthy and big corporations is ok.
