“Pay to Play” Jay Nixon Collateral Damage in DGA-Funded Wisconsin Ad

April 24th, 2012 by mopns · No Comments

“Pay to Play” Jay Nixon is the victim of Democratic friendly fire after a national Democratic group released a new ad in Wisconsin that highlights Missouri’s rank as the second-worst state in the nation in terms of job creation.

The new ad, funded by the Democratic Governors Association, is meant as an attack against Wisconsin Gov. Walker, but according to the stats featured twice in the ad, Missouri ranks 49th in the nation in job creation. The DGA has already spent more than $1.1 million on Nixon’s behalf.

Nixon’s Department of Economic Development (which Nixon claims he doesn’t run) has been in disarray.  The Department has gone through four directors in three years and been marred by scandals after promising millions to a company run by a felon and millions more to a now-defunct Chinese company without first doing their homework.
