With $106,000 of in-kind contributions from Mitch Daniels’ school privatizing Aiming Higher PAC (page 7), $13,000 of in-kind contributions (page 11) from Brian Bosma, a $1,500 direct deposit from Mike Pence’s committee (page 10), and $53,000 (page 8) in hard cash from the anti-critical thinking Indiana Chamber’s Indiana Business for Responsible Government PAC, Matt Ubelhor, Indiana's state rep. from district 62, in 2010 fed his pockets and his ego with $61,000 of the Walton/DeVos/hedge fund Hoosiers for Economic Growth PAC money (page 7) and officially became a Walmart/Amway politician.
It was a good year for the Hoosiers for Economic Growth PAC, with mega-bucks pouring in from Overstock.com's Patrick Byrne, defrauder Jerry Slusser (both mentioned in Hoosier School Heist), and others.
And Ubelhor's cozy relationship with the chief funders of the corporate school movement in Indiana has not ended. In December 2013, the Hoosiers for Economic Growth PAC handed Ubelhor $500 (page 9) more.
Mitch, Mike, Brian, the Chamber, and others adore the handsome Republican from Bristow, Indiana, but Ubelhor is a true Walmart/Amway Republican, first and foremost.
Look for more dough coming to Ubelhor from this group soon. But beware. They have changed the PAC’s name to the Hoosiers for Quality Education Political Action Committee in an attempt to throw muckslingers like me off track, but it won’t work.
I know whose bed Matt Ubelhor sleeps in every single night and what corporate privatizers he welcomes at his door.
