AFP (which features a doctored video of fake union violence on its website) sent a letter to U.S. senators urging them to vote against relief for Americans hurt by Superstorm Sandy. You can read it here, if you have the stomach for it.
Lee Fang at The Nation tells us Koch thinks Sandy victims should just suck it up.
Koch’s top deputy in New Jersey, a surly gentleman named Steve Lonegan, who heads the local AFP state chapter, called the aid package a “disgrace.” “This is not a federal government responsibility,” Lonegan told reporters. “We need to suck it up and be responsible for taking care of ourselves.”Charming.
