Not that it’s surprising, but how much more obvious can things become before the voters finally wake up? Trey Grayson, the former Republican secretary of state of Kentucky (who lost badly to now Senator, Rand Paul), is now co-chair of a Political Action Committee that supports democratic candidates? How much more proof do we need that politicians like Grayson believe in nothing but being politicians?

If you really believe in free markets and the harm that government intervention can do to an economy and to our freedoms, why in the world would you ever want to help someone get elected, that believes in exactly the opposite?

Giffords, who survived a January 2011 assassination attempt that left her with years of rehabilitation ahead, resigned her seat earlier this year but left open the possibility of a return to politics. With the new PAC, dubbed “Gabby PAC,” she allows herself to continue to be a part of the process.

The formation of the PAC was first reported last week by Politico, but we now have details about who specifically will be involved and whom the PAC will support.

Giffords, a Blue Dog Democrat, is set to announce in a news release that the PAC will be co-chaired by a Democrat and a Republican: former Bill Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich and former Kentucky secretary of state and 2010 Senate candidate Trey Grayson (R).

However, the PAC will only support Democrats.

    Mitch McConnell’s right-hand man is out supporting democrats. The true colors of Mitch McConnell are plainly evidenced through Trey Grayson, the man McConnell was (and still is) behind 100%. Shows that McConnell is more interested in building his kingdom than he is in advancing the conservative cause. McConnell had plenty of genuine Republicans he could have picked to support, but instead he went with his fellow Rino.

    • Yeah, it’s a shame. The only good thing about McConnell right now is that he has at least been helping Paul, and I think it’s a good thing that Rand has been working with McConnell because that makes Paul “safer” to support in the eyes of Republicans.
