Monkey business from Americans for Prosperity

Posted By on Mon, Sep 29, 2014 at 3:33 PM

A reader sends in an anti-Pryor mailer received from Americans for Prosperity. It seems like $71,000 spent on monkeys under the influence of cocaine* has been the single dominant issue in the Senate race in Arkansas, so it's perfectly reasonable that AFP would choose this particular imagery to highlight in a mailer.

*p.s. This is a four-year-old, misleading gambit. Republicans love to point to scientific research that sounds silly out of context. This was a grant awarded by the National Institutes of Health via a competitive process to researchers at Wake Forest University to learn more about treating drug addiction in humans.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
