Not long ago congressional candidate Darcy Burner called for the boycott of Koch Industries. Actually, she developed a smart phone app that would help people avoid any products sold by any of the companies the Koch brothers may derive income from. Now Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) is taking the lead and calling for a boycott of the US company that employs 50,000 American workers, and some of those workers are his constituents! He’s mad that the Koch brothers donate money to Republicans, and he wants to pass the DISCLOSE Act so they and other donors can be subjected to death threats and other harassment from leftist goons.
John Hinderaker notes that this is a new low in politics, even for a Democrat.
Next, Lautenberg did something that to my knowledge no Senator or Congressman has ever done before: he called, at least implicitly, for a boycott of an American company, simply because its owners disagree with him politicall
