A Freeper, smith5460,
decided to check the names of Chrysler dealerships being axed [not asked, axed] by Obama
Motors, against campaign contributions, and you'll never ever guess in a
million nanoseconds ...
are a few examples of the campaign donations made by some of the
dealers who will close their doors shortly. I'm not anywhere close to
going through the entire list yet. The figures are only from the 2004,
2006, and 2008 Election cycles:
(1) Michael E. Maroone
Mr. Maroone has 6 dealerships in Fort Lauderdale, FL that will close.
Since 2003, he has donated $12,700 to the RNC, $10,000 to the Florida
Republican party, and $2,300 to Mitt Romney's Presidential campaign.
(2) Vernon Buchanan
Vernon Buchanan is a member of the U.S. House from Florida since 2007.
One of his dealerships in Venice, FL will close. In the past 3 election
cycles, Mr. Buchanan has given $50,000 to the RNC, $20,000 to the
Florida Republican party, $4,000 to President Bush's campaign, and
numerous amounts of money to other Republican candidates for Congress.
(3) Larry Crain
Mr. Crain's dealership in Little Rock will close. He has given $1,000
to President Bush, $1,000 to Marvin Parks (U.S. House cndidate in
Arkansas), $2,300 to Mike Huckabee's Presidential campaign, and $2,300

(5) Ray Huffines
Mr. Huffines will have a dealership in Denton, TX lose. He and his
family are huge donors to the GOP. He has gave at least $1,000 each to
Sen. Brownback ... and on and on ...
