Surprise! Surprise! Lobbyist & Auto Parts Manufacturer Board of Director Dick Gephardt Supports Auto Bailout

December 2nd, 2008 by mopns · No Comments

Richard Gephardt, the former House majority leader, told Politico. “A lot of this depends on the economy, but the thing that makes the most sense is to throw them a lifeline to avoid bankruptcy until Obama has, as you say, his feet on the ground.”

Folks, this is what happens to you after you leave Congress to become a high powered lobbyist. It obviously becomes very difficult to distinguish the fact that you can have absolutely no credibility on certain issues. Yes, Congressman Gephardt (son of a milk truck driver!) was very pro labor, so his support of a bailout to protect auto jobs is expected. But what we learn from this Politico article is that lobbyist Gephardt serves on the board of directors for Dana Corp., a major auto parts manufacturer!
