555 Washington Loves Republicans

New, 21 comments

It's just as bad as when driving an SUV meant you were a generous donor to al Qaeda— the Weekly points to a shrill editorial at the Guardian, pals that they are, about 555 Washington. Because Aegon, owner of Transamerica and would-be developer of the twisty cylinder, donates money to conservative causes, approving the project would "give them more money that can go to opposing health-care reform and opposing abortion rights and electing right-wing Republicans. And they're offering the city nothing in return." And now the debate's gone nuclear. (By the way, public hearing, take two, is tonight.) [SFBG, via The Snitch]
