Koch Bros Pressure Senator Dean Heller to Vote for Betsy DeVos Nomination

Koch Brother’s lackey and part-time man slave, Juan Martinez, who is also the State Director of “Americans For Prosperity,” a political action committee that tries to convince people that smoking is healthy, gasoline is drinkable and that McDonald’s is healthy food, has made it clear he will be bribing… I mean donating, money to Senator Heller to vote for Betsy DeVos.

Already Senator Heller issued the following statement: “Due to her commitment to improve our nation’s school system for all students and her focus on increasing parental engagement, I am supporting Betsy DeVos as our nation’s next Secretary of Education. She shares many of the same points of view as Governor Sandoval when it comes to our nation’s school systems. Having his support weighed heavily on my decision to vote for her confirmation. Betsy DeVos understands the need to bring back education control to state and local boards, and I look forward to working with her to empower our parents, teachers, students, and local education officials. As the husband of a teacher, I believe Betsy DeVos is the right choice for this position,” said United States Senator Dean Heller.

However, the Las Vegas Sun reported a grass-roots campaign was looking to prevent this:

Sen. Dean Heller is feeling pressure at home as constituents, Democrats and others unhappy with the new Donald Trump administration stage protests and an aggressive campaign to sway the Nevada Republican’s votes on presidential appointees and other issues.

A coalition of labor, women, minority, religious and environmental activists planned vigils in Las Vegas and Reno this evening, calling for unity and urging the state’s congressional delegation to stand up to what they describe as “American values currently under attack by the Trump administration.”

Hundreds of people turned out in Las Vegas and Reno last weekend to protest Trump’s travel ban after thousands rallied on both ends of the state for last month’s Women’s March. Police estimated 10,000 in Reno alone.

“People are engaged and looking for ways to get involved. I think this is only going to continue to get bigger and bigger,” Annette Magnus of the Las Vegas-based Battle Born Progress coalition said Thursday.
