Rich Miller, long time Mike Jacobs pal, explains how Mike managed to win re-election in ’12 even though he behaved thuggishly on the senate floor and behaved thuggishly toward taxpayers by jacking up their taxes by 67% with a “temporary” tax increase that didn’t fix a damned thing:
“Having President Obama at the top of the ticket surely helped the Democrats last time . For example, Obama spent a king’s ransom in Iowa, which drove Democratic turnout in Sen. Mike Jacobs’ (D-ThugLand) district, just across the Mississippi River.”
But the good news for Mike doesn’t stop at him winning an election that had nothing to do with him and everything to do with President Lightworker, it reaps benefits for the Senator Jacobs/Lobbyist Jacobs father-son tag team:
Gentle readers, as you know Mike is the Chair of the Energy Committee and his daddy is a lobbyist for Ameren.
Life is good for the Jacobs family—for others, not so much.
