As a photographer, I have always wished I could find a way to track down campaign money photographically. Fortunately, yesterday everything became a lot easier when I got this message from the Louise Slaughter campaign:
Guess who Louise’s Republican opponent Maggie Brooks was caught on film cheering with at the GOP Convention in Tampa?
A picture says a thousand words and here she is with none other than David Koch, of the billionaire Koch Brothers and architect of almost every negative deceitful attack ad this year.
Who knows how much money the Koch brothers will pump into Rochester to get their golden girl Maggie elected.”
Could the Slaughter campaign have found a way (without looking at filings or disclosure reports from the FEC) to get at who is really backing Brooks? Why else would somebody be at an event near another person if they weren’t giving them millions of dollars?
I went into my archive and found a slew of other blurry photos of Maggie Brooks at events that show people near her. Could these blurry people “caught on film” near Maggie Brooks at some event pump millions into Rochester to get her elected?
