We have only a few more months to bring you the antics of Kirby, Billy, and Tony before their terms mercifully come to an end. If you didn’t catch the post concerning the piece of art above, read all about how Kirby instructed us to “follow the money”. And then hilariously constructed this nonsensical flow chart to show he has no idea what that means.
We hope we can do a better job of it. In this morning’s FNP, there is a story concerning a possible site for the Off-Track Betting (OTB) .Well, that story made us want to make some connections of our own! What do we know about the OTB bill and the Clarion Inn?
- We know that the Clarion Inn is owned by Randy Cohen.
- We know that Randy Cohen donates to Republican candidates.
- AND we know that Tony was the champion of this bill from the beginning. So off to the Maryland campaign database we go!
Not only did Randy donate $200 to Tony’s campaign in 2014, he gave him a sizable contribution this election cycle:
We remember during the discussion of this bill it was said there was no particular site in mind! The skeptical side of us wonders if the Clarion Inn was discussed from the beginning. We also can’t help but wonder who approached Tony to introduce this bill. Could it be that those same people who like to accuse Jan of backroom deals are actually guilty of the same? Kirby says that if you follow the money you will always get your answer. Could it be that he’s right?
