Charles Roberts's comments:
on Tax Measures
Lest one think that the many comments from opponents of these measures spring from informed criticism, the Taxpayer Defense Project of Oregon Freedomworks is sending e-mail to people, urging them to attend this program. This is an attempt to "stack the deck" on the program with opponents of the Measures. It even provides them with an almost scripted argument against the Measures.
Freedomworks is the Tea Party lobbying group headed by Dick Armey. Armey is reported to have received $250,000 per year in 2008 from this organization for 18 hours per week of work. Matt Kibbe, the CEO of Fredomworks, is reported to have received $121,417 in 2008 for working 17 hours per week for Freedomworks.
The canard that this is a "grass roots" organization is laughable. OPB will find its "Think Out Loud" broadcast studio filled with "know nothings" from the Tea Party movement.
