Erick Erickson at RedState shines light on a $90 million set-aside in the “stimulus” for the left-wing Leadership Conference on Civil Rights, which is buried in the larger Boob Tube bailout for digital TV:
The Leadership Conference on Civil Rights (”LCCR”) is a far left interest group.
The group opposed conservative judges. The group agitates for card check. The group is in favor of the Fairness Doctrine. It is chiefly an agitator for affirmative action programs and tries to pressure banks into giving high risk loans like those that caused the housing crisis. If you oppose them, they label you a racist.
LCCR operates like ACORN. And the Senate Democrats are about to give the $90 million of your money.
Under the cover of the digital television conversion delay, the Senate Democrats want to give the LCCR $90 million.
As I said last week in my ACORN column:
Any self-respecting Senate Republican who would vote for this multi-billion-dollar slush fund in the name of saving the economy needs his or her head examined.
