Apparently (according to Joe Lieberman) Ned Lamont's wealth is somehow tainted, but Michael Bloomberg's BILLION DOLLARS is pure manna from heaven!
So while Senator Lieberman spews lies out of one side of his mouth and implies Ned's family fortune was earned through mysterious and shady means, Joe uses the other side of his mouth to plant a sloppy wet kiss on Micheal Bloomberg's ass cheek.
Because Mayor Bloomberg, the billionaire Republican who spent over $77,000,000 of his own money to campaign for the Mayorship of New York, is eager to impose his OUT OF STATE influence on Connecticut's Senate race.
From an AP story on CNN.com:
The mayor has also dispatched several campaign operatives to Connecticut to help Lieberman reach GOP and independent voters as the race closes. Lieberman is running as an independent after losing to wealthy businessman Ned Lamont in the Democratic primary.So, not only are Republican "operatives" going to be flooding the state, but Mayor Bloomberg is also betraying his own party by not supporting the Republican candidate for Senate, Alan Schlesinger.
"The mayor has been extremely generous personally in being willing to help us raise money," Lieberman spokesman Dan Gerstein said.
Bloomberg appeared at a major Chicago fundraising event for Lieberman recently. He will campaign with Lieberman on Monday in Stamford, greeting commuters and formally endorsing him. Bloomberg will also host a fundraiser next week at his home, Gerstein said.
Bloomberg operatives are helping to build Lieberman's get-out-the-vote effort, which is targeting a mix of Democratic, Republican and independent supporters.
"We're leveraging the very relevant experience of the Bloomberg operation to help us in what can charitably be described as a unique situation," said Gerstein.
The Bloomberg team has valuable experience identifying such voters in New York City, which is considered Democratic turf, said Gerstein.
Bloomberg also is backing Connecticut Republicans Gov. M. Jodi Rell and Rep. Christopher Shays, who is locked in a tough re-election fight.
No wonder Lieberman loves Bloomberg.
They're two of a kind.
TO CONNECTICUT VOTERS: Don't let the out-of-state operatives decide the election for you!
