Beepy And Emanuel, Sittin' In A Tree
Via Patterico, the Next Right finds that, when it comes to BP and Democrats, it's all in the family:
“One of the top media consultants for British Petroleum gave free rent to a politician who became White House Chief of Staff.
And, no, this was not Karl Rove giving a freebie to Andy Card.
No, the recipient of the favor was Rahm Emanuel and the benefactor was Stanley Greenberg.
Stanley Greenberg is an interesting guy. He is married to CT Democratic Rep. Rosa DeLauro, a close ally of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Greenberg is the principal of Greenberg Quinlan Rosner, a large polling and public relations firm. They do both political campaign work and “corporate communications” work.
The DCCC has paid Greenberg’s firm in excess of $500,000 during the 2006 and 2008 election cycles. They are also Dick Blumenthal’s pollster.
But let’s look at the corporate side, where Mr. Greenberg promises to “help corporations increase competitiveness and profitability, improve reputation, and take advantage of global trends.”
Who are they helping?
