More "Big Insurance" Money for Paul Krekorian, Correction!!, Chris Essel??
A little lesson in political hypocrisy from none other than Chris Essel.
It seems that Chris Essel's highly-paid campaign assemblage of Shallman, Berman, Burnside, Wesson III among others, have the proclivity to tarnish their challenger, Paul Krekorian, as being the captive vessel of "Big Oil", "Big Labor", or did you say "Big Insurance"? They did.......
From the Essel Campaign's "Truth about Paul" website.
After accepting more than $15,000 from the insurance industry, Krekorian voted to allow insurance companies to raise our rates. He even voted to allow insurance companies to install spyware satellite devices in our cars that would violate our privacy by tracking and recording our every movement -- where we go, where our kids go to school, and how fast we drive twenty-four hours a day.4 We do not need another City Council member who will sell our interests to the highest bidder.

But it seems that the Essel Campaign will accept money from anyone, during the waning days of incessive mailings. From the Ethics website.

C. Some obscure Insurance Company in New York??
D. Noone cares.........

I find it fascinating that some "political flavor" of the moment, can smear an entire industry, for real-time political value, but in these days of instantaneous fact-checking, the smear is on you!
