Mary Cheney Working to Elect Bill McCollum as Florida Governor?


The Tampa Tribune reports on a shadowy political committee that is airing ads in Florida attacking gubernatorial candidate Attorney General Bill McCollum's primary opponent, healthcare executive Rick Scott:

Florida "The ads were bought by a secretive political committee that won't reveal its sources of funding, but that has ties to McCollum. They attack Scott over his history as chief executive officer of Hospital Corporation of America, which was investigated and fined by the federal government for Medicare fraud. They're carefully worded to avoid being labeled as explicit campaign ads. That allows them to pass through a loophole in Florida law that allows independent political committees to avoid reporting their donors. The McCollum campaign denies any connection to the group, called Alliance for America's Future. But they were produced by political advertising consultant Chris Mottola, and the time was bought by McLaughlin and Associates - both are strategists who work for McCollum's campaign and have worked for him in past races."

The stealth group has reportedly not registered as a PAC in the state, registered with Florida’s Division of Elections, or the Federal Election Commission, and that is getting plenty of attention.

As you probably recall, McCollum is behind the hiring of "ex-gay" activist and exposed hypocrite George Rekers as a star witness in the case against gay adoption in Florida.

That's why it's interesting who else is involved in the shadowy political committee which is helping to get McCollum elected to governor — a very well-known Republican gay parent:

"The Alliance has bought close to $1 million worth of time for the ads, and intends to buy more, said Barry Bennett, a member of its board. Bennett said the other two members are Mary Cheney, daughter for former Vice President Dick Cheney, and Kara Ahern, a former aide to Cheney."

  1. Is this in any way a surprise?

    Leave us not forget that visicious cunt was hired by Coors to try and Get Teh Gheys Back
    in the wake of one of the most successful product boycotts in Americna history.

    Needless to say, she failed.

    Now she's crawed out from under the rock she, Heather and their turkey-baster babies live in to help one of Daddy's Pals.

    There are few carbon-based life-forms quite as low as the Cheneys.

  8. I'm all for revoking her membership in our "club" with no renewal options...period. Her effort to elect this Florida homophobic bigot is an affront to us all. It's unfathomable how she can stoop so can only suppose she was rigidly "home schooled" by mommy and daddy.

  11. Certainly MC will go down as one of the saddest examples along the road to equality for LGBTs. History will not be kind to her. It will be left to her children to atone for her misguided deeds.

  12. Hilarious. She's filth, but look at the source. I don't think it's worthwhile to make any generalizations about teh gays based off of this...she's just an amoral parasite. But, gay republicans...are silly. They have no place in a gay rights movement...not since the days of nixon.

  13. An utter cunt. Runs in the family.

  14. I think the Cheney sisters are in some kind of weird competition to see which can become more hated then their father. Mary is nothing but a paid-gun willing to go where the money is regardless of who may be hurt in the process. Her child has my sympathy.

  15. McCollum looks wouldn't surprise me if he's a closet case also.

  16. Of course she is. Amorality is a family tradition amongst the Cheneys.

  17. She's a sociopath, just like Mom, Dad and Sis. An unconscionable waste of protoplasm.
