Here's the invitation to a fundraiser for Congressman Ed Towns, headlined by JC Watts and his lobbying firm, Watts Partners.
Watts Partners includes the former executive director of the Republican Conference and chief of staff to Pete Hoekstra, ranking member on the House Select Committee on Intelligence. It has the former legislative director for Mel Martizen and direct of Senate relations with the Heritage Foundation, Former Bell company officials, and former PAC directors for major DC law firms. It is literally the embodiment of the corrupt piece of the CBC and Republican party, in the form of conservative business interests funding both Republicans and conservative black Democrats.
And of course, JC Watts was for a good amount of time the only black member of the Republican Party in the House, and an important leader and TV personality. It's fitting he's now raising for Ed Towns on behalf of his lobbying firm.
Kevin Powell is challenging Ed Towns. I'll have a post up shortly on Powell and his campaign.
