Six Nebraskans from Astroturf group Americans For Prosperity sign open letter complaining about another Astroturf group, Freedomworks, bankrolling Ben Sasse

How much ultra-right wing hypocrisy can you stand?
     A group including members of the Nebraska chapter of the notorious Koch Bros.-funded front organization, Americans for Prosperity, are mad that another Tea Party Astroturf group, Freedomworks, founded by Dick Armey*, has raised a huge amount of money in D.C. to bankroll Ben Sasse's Senate run. Part of their indignant sputtering:
We are not million dollar Washington DC special interest groups with strong ties to Capitol Hill.
     No, you're extremists working for a different fake grassroots special interest group funded by the politically carpet-bagging billionaire Koch Brothers — of Kansas, not Nebraska.
     Below: Sasse's anti-Washington special intersts ad, bought and paid for by conservative D.C. PACs, lobbyists and special interests. This is 100%, straight-up, unadulterated bullshit evidently aimed at voters whose intelligence Sasse and his backers surely must regard with limitless contempt.

*In 1995 Armey referred to openly homosexual Congressman Barney Frank as "Barney Fag". Armey said it was a slip of the tongue. Frank did not accept Armey's explanation, saying, "I turned to my own expert, my mother, who reports that in 59 years of marriage, no one ever introduced her as Elsie Fag."
