Following Mitch’s Money. Presentation by Doug Price on Jan. 25th, 2021

Tonight’s segment will be Part One of a series related to the recent Kentucky Impeachment actions. The facts in this segment are true and researched. Opinions shared in this segment are my own.

The first segment discusses the 3 filed petitions and provides background information about the KY Impeachment processes.

Seems like filing for an impeachment is in vogue but will probably not be in vogue much longer. Why? Because the loser in the effort will have to pay all costs associated with the action, including Legislator time. I…


Following Mitch’s Money. Presentation by Doug Price on Dec. 28th, 2020

From an earlier segment, we learned that Mitch knows the way to win elections is Money. Money buys Power and Power buys Money. It is circular. Mitch is certainly not shy about obtaining money either — big business supports him because they know he will support them.

This support extends from him through the National Republican Senatorial Committee. Mitch controls the Senate and wields great influence over Republican Senators. …

In this episode of Following Mitch’s Money, I will talk about Senator David Perdue who was elected to the US Senate in 2015 and is now involved in a Georgia run-off election with Jon Ossoff.

With a net worth ranging from $15-$45 million, Perdue is one of the wealthiest members of the Senate.

He lives in a 9,500 square foot house located in Sea Island, GA valued at approximately $4.5 million.

On March 4, 2005 billionaire mogul Martha Stewart was released from a federal prison after serving 5 months for lying about her sale of ImClone stock. …

Welcome to another edition of Following Mitch’s Money!

As everyone knows MMRC was unsuccessful in our quest to Ditch Mitch, but there is another way to at least remove him as Majority Leader and that involves January elections in Georgia.

Tonight, I will talk about Kelly Loeffler, who is running against the Democrat — Raphael Warnock.

Kelly Loeffler is 50 years old and married 65-year-old Jeffrey Sprecher in 2004. Apparently, they met when she worked for him at a subsidiary he owned. She co-owns the Atlanta Dream of the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA).

Her husband is CEO of Intercontinental…


Following Mitch’s Money, Presentation by Doug Price on Oct. 19, 2020

Mitch is making the rounds in Kentucky, handing out money. His words and political ads stress that essentially, he should be reelected because he is able to provide more funding for Kentucky. Is he good for Kentucky? Or good for Mitch?

In 1984 Mitch entered Congress as a new Senator making an annual salary of $72,600. The Federal Minimum wage was $3.35/ hour translating to an annual salary of $6,968. Today Mitch’s salary is $193,400 and the Federal minimum wage is $7.25. The Federal minimum wage is just above…

First, I want to make a statement about the Mitch McConnell Retirement Committee. I joined this Committee when the Committee was formed several months ago. We are a dedicated group of volunteers who work with thousands of other people who are committed to effect change.

The people on this Committee are amazing and I appreciate their hard work and the work of those who have helped us along the way!

Tonight’s Following Mitch’s Money will look at the following items:

  • Fundraising
  • Judicial appointments
  • The election

Open Secrets is the…


Following Mitch’s Money, Presentation by Doug Price on Oct. 5th, 2020

A couple of months ago I bought Mitch’s autobiography The Long Game. The cost was only $5.65 so perhaps I only contributed less than a buck to his net worth of over $40 million.

One of his proudest achievements was to support and take advantage of the Citizens United legal challenge which essentially determined that giving money to politicians was Freedom of Speech and protected under the First Amendment.

Mitch writes about the First Amendment and how the Founding Fathers of the Constitution “wrote the First Amendment because they…


Following Mitch’s Money, Presentation by Doug Price on September 28th, 2020

Points to cover:

  • Money and Power
  • Mitch and ever-changing policies — Ginsburg
  • Donations to at risk Republican Senators
  • Dark Money

Our Senator, Mitch McConnell, never ceases to disappoint us. His decision to rush the appointment to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the exact opposite of his holding up Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland. What made sense to him in 2016 is completely different with one exception — both outcomes are to his advantage.

This is typical Mitch — re-arranging the facts to suit his desired outcome.

One would think…


Following Mitch’s Money, Presentation by Doug Price on September 21, 2020

During last week’s segment I mentioned the Six Degrees of Separation. I realized that one can connect Mitch to various organizations, businesses, and others due to his quest for money which he uses to create power. The more money, the more power. The more power, the more money. It is circular.

I decided to check into the McConnell Center located on the campus of the University of Louisville. Also, following this preview I will detail corporate and personal donations to Mitch related to the McConnell Center.

In May 2020…

This week’s episode will be about a very current topic: what is going on with the US Post Office and how is Mitch intertwined in this mess? Remember Mitch’s memoir The Long Game? Did this plan start several years ago? You be the judge!

The Postal Service is overseen by the USPS Board of Governors. The Chair of this Board is Robert M. Duncan of Inez, KY. Mr. Duncan is an accomplished person well known in the Republican Party on a State and National level.
