4. In fact, there is no political candidate more beholden to corporate money and the economic elite than JD Vance. It's all a scam, laundering right-wing politics through a phony everyman frame. https://t.co/WrvcBKmQKC

3. Theil is the chairman of Palantir, on the board of Facebook, and runs a hedge fund. Backed by this mountain of corporate cash, Vance has the audacity to present himself as someone who is prepared to take on the elite and corporate power https://t.co/WrvcBKmQKC

@JDVance1 2. J.D. Vance is going to run for the U.S. Senate. In preparation for that his friend and business partner, billionaire corporate executive Peter Theil, has donated $10 MILLION, to a Super PAC that supports his candidacy

David French is fine with submitting to our oligarchy or complaining about it. But what must always be avoided is *action.* God forbid we do something. https://t.co/eocppN4Fva

1. There is no one with a more cynical approach to politics than @JDVance1 This will be a short thread. Follow if interested. https://t.co/PJ4935jFJY

@RepMikeJohnson @KochIndustries After 1/6, the Koch political network said: "Lawmakers’ actions leading up to and during last week’s insurrection will weigh heavy in our evaluation of future support"

This apparently did not apply to @KochIndustries, which is run by the same person, Charles Koch https://t.co/MlaK6CjhJ3

Scoop for ya this morning: John Boehner, whose memoir is out today, tells me he voted for Donald Trump in 2020. Worth keeping in mind as you read through book, where he spends time criticizing the former President. https://t.co/4Ff1Cu9SvS

John Boehner is doing an extensive media tour presenting himself as a different kind of Republican but whenever it matters he is the same kind of Republican https://t.co/jCkntLiPKJ

4. The ultimate vote in the Texas House will be very close and businesses have a lot of sway in Texas. This could happen any day. Sign up to the newsletter for updates and accountability journalism. https://t.co/TfpCItdVSo

3. One thing that is getting lost is that very few companies have spoken out specifically against the Texas bills, HB6 and SB7. And none have said they will cut off funding to the sponsors of these bills. https://t.co/66FZji4HyQ

2. Corporate America failed to act with focus and urgency in Georgia and many companies issued statements opposing new restrictions AFTER the bill was signed into law. Will they repeat the same mistake in Texas? https://t.co/66FZjhN6Hi

1. Corporations received a lot of positive press for holding a Zoom call discussing the possibility of action in support of voting rights but there is no time to waste. Texas could approve new voter suppression bills any day. https://t.co/66FZjhN6Hi
