Beltway Bob

Last I heard, Bob Corker was accusing Ed Bryant and Van Hilleary of being beholden to "special interests" because Bryant and Hilleary are "registered lobbyists." If Ed and Van are really in with the lobbying crowd, they would each have outraised Corker by now and would be using that money to have run ads even sooner than Corker had.

Yesterday, the Knoxville News-Sentinel finally reported what The World has been telling readers all along, namely that Bob Corker is the darling of K Street. The Bryant campaign officially declared "Hypocrisy, Thy Name is Bob Corker," after Corker has attempted to portray both Bryant and Hilleary as "Washington insiders" who are deep into the K Street culture.

We learn, however, that Beltway Bob scheduled "a Tuesday evening fund-raiser at the offices of Capitol Decisions, a lobbying firm. An invitation shows that admission for PAC representatives was $1,000 each, $250 for others attending," reporter

Corker ~ 50 - 60%
Bryant ~ 20 - 30%
Hillary ~ 10 - 20%
True Believers vs $$$
Corker vs Ford Jr after August. That's all I can say.

Will you join in and ask your readers to call Corker campaign and demand he take down his ad?:
