Charlie Dooley Calls Obamacare Protestors “Nothing But Haters”

“John Brunner’s a friend of mine. I have a lot of Republican friends– [and] a lot of Republican contributors.”— STL county Executive Charlie Dooley

STL Beacon:

There’s an old saying that politics makes strange bedfellows. And that adage came alive, so to speak, during a clash between the three major Republicans running for the U.S. Senate…Brunner has donated to Dooley over the years, including when the Democrat was locked in a tight race with Republican attorney Bill Corrigan.
