Report: Khameni to contribute to Obama campaign to approve nuke deal
Hat Tip: MFS-The Other NewsTEHRAN- Imam Fund plans to contribute $10 million to support President Obama's campaign to get nuke "deal" with Iran approved by Congress.— Amir Taheri (@AmirTaheri4) July 31, 2015
Hmmm. The entire AIPAC budget to fight the deal is supposedly around $40 million.
Aipac expects to spend some $40m on an ad campaign in about 40 states, focusing on vulnerable Democrats, turning up the pressure on them in their home states over the summer recess. Its liberal, pro-deal counterpart, J Street, can only hope to spend up to $5m.But with Iran allowed to contribute, who needs J Street's money. Khameni can just take $1 billion or so of his 'sanctions relief' and use it to make sure all goes 'smoothly.'
What could go wrong?
