    …and proud of it.” Quote from Herman Cain at a Conservative Fundraiser the other night

    Mark Block ... Yeah That guy
    132x99-vthmb_smoking_mark-block.jpg

    Is Cain's Top Adviser
    and he came from a little place in Wisconsin ... working for the Koch Bro's Americans for Prosperity

    Cain campaign’s core staff members are veterans of Americans for Prosperity icon_confused.gif

    Billionaire oil magnates Charles and David Koch are the founding benefactors of Americans for Prosperity, a conservative group that admitted having controversial financial ties to the Cain campaign earlier in the week
    Cain's campaign manager and a number of aides have worked for Americans for Prosperity, or AFP, the advocacy group founded with support from billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch, which lobbies for lower taxes and less government regulation and spending. Cain credits a businessman who served on an AFP advisory board with helping devise his "9-9-9" plan to rewrite the nation's tax code.

    Looks to me like Cain's presidential hopes are TOAST !!!

    Might know the Koch's that pushed the TBaggers are behind this Cain too. I smell conflicts of interest throughout all of their political funding, I guess they think they can keep right on buying more policy and legislation favorable to their business by spending on multiple fronts.

    I'd be interested in knowing who else these bro's are funding through "Americans For Koch Bro's Prosperity" .

    I wonder how much the Koch brothers spent on Cain?
    Too bad for them it's too late to get their money back... now that he's been revealed to be a serial groper.
    Maybe there's still time for them to buy another candidate before the election.

    Isn't the Republican tactic of converting a weakness into a strength at play here? He's wearing his Koch "credentials" with pride.
