He’s Colombian and has supposedly worked through a political consultant in Miami. It’s a long piece but well worth your time. And I thought WE were semi astute at the ways of the political world.

In July 2015, Clinton disclosed a list of lobbyists who were bundling contributions for her campaign. That included Scott Parven and Brian Pomper, lobbyists at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld, who have been registered lobbyists for Chevron for nearly 10 years. Clinton has been insistent on her desire to regulate hydraulic-fracturing practices, but in March held a fundraiser with investors of the controversial practice. She did not sign a pledge that her Democratic opponents at the time—Sanders and Martin O’Malley—did while vowing not to accept donations from fossil-fuel companies……… http://www.thedailybeast.com/cheats/2016/03/31/hillary-i-m-so-sick-of-bernie-lies.html April 1, 2016 6:38 AM Log in to Reply thegreatpumpkin Don’t be too hard on her.

They’re bringing strikeouts, they’re Jeff Francoeur, they’re Bud Norris and some, I assume, are good players.” April 1, 2016 8:11 AM Log in to Reply Will Durant Freddie Freeman for President! He would have to take a cut in pay but the bennies are great. An additional bonus is that it would leave the Braves eligible to play in AAA.
