GOP Legislator Rips Americans For Prosperity: 'You People Serve No Purpose!'

Florida Senator Nancy Detert had some harsh words for AFP shills during a hearing.

This is refreshing. I wonder how Senator Nancy Detert managed to avoid being primaried and smeared long enough to be elected. After all, the Kochtopus is strong in Florida.

Daily Kos:

Republican frustration over the Koch brothers' rule is expanding beyond Montana, all the way across the country to Florida, where a Republican legislator has had just about enough of being targeted as not conservative enough by the Kochs' Americans for Prosperity. In a hearing on a bill she's proposed to create incentives for the film industry to come to Florida, Sen. Nancy Detert blasted AFP.

"I appreciate the mail-outs that you do against me on a monthly basis that say I give money to Hollywood moguls, which, of course, I don't have any money to give, and neither does the state of Florida give money to Hollywood moguls."

"You're all on the Koch brothers' payroll. Good for you. I'm glad you're all employed ... I hope you're getting paid a lot of money to show up to these meetings and say meaningless things."

"Obviously you're for prosperity for yourself and not anyone else ... You people serve absolutely no purpose."

If only the IRS saw it that way.
