Video: How Conservatives Get Rich Off Angry Republican Voters

| by Michael Allen

On her show Monday night, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow explained how conservative figures such as Dick Morris, Mike Huckabee and Dick Armey make money off angry Republican voters (video below).

Maddow quoted a recent report by MediaMatters.org, which found that Fox News contributor Dick Morris had used his PAC to apparently funnel money into his personal account by renting  his email list.

Maddow said: “What these financial reports seem to indicate that is that donations to Dick Morris’s super PAC substantially end up just going to Dick Morris, which he presumably uses to send more e-mails to get more money, which goes to Dick Morris."

Maddow also reported how tea party leader Dick Armey quit FreedomWorks and got an $8 million payoff to leave and how Fox News host Mike Huckabee has been asking for donations to repeal Obamacare by keeping himself on television, reports RawStory.com.
