Independent? Bennett campaign whacks Angus on huge DNC donation

The Rick Bennett for Senate campaign turned around some serious campaign collateral today, jumping onto a story about Angus King’s prolific Democrat donations that bubbled up on Facebook last night.

Bennett’s campaign points out an amazing fact – Angus King donated $6,000 to the Democratic National Committee the day after Olympia Snowe announced she was ending her reelection bid. King’s ridiculous coyness about who he would caucus with looks even more foolish in light of this, and conspiracy theories about the Pingree bow-out should start running rampant now.

We’ll start the clock running now to see how long it is before Sussman’s newspapers pick this story up.  Chances are, the big papers will continue to repeat King’s ‘independent’ status, despite a long record to the contrary.
