Dem. Rep. Mark Takano schooled after calling GOP ‘real wolves of Wall Street’

After tweeting a picture claiming that Republican leaders are the “real wolves of Wall Street” on Sunday, Rep. Mark Takano, D-Calif., was taken to task and schooled on Twitter, Twitchy reported.

“Let’s not forget who the real wolves of Wall Street are. Protect people, not profits,” he wrote, attaching a picture of GOP leadership.  The picture is titled, “The wolves of Wall Street.”

“Doesn’t @RepMarkTakano know that Wall Street’s money almost all goes to Democrats? Mostly Chuck Schumer,” one person said.

Another person, citing a 2010 CNN article, reminded Takano that Goldman Sachs was a top Obama donor, having contributed $994,795 to Obama’s campaign in 2007 and 2008.

“Only the PAC and employees of the University of California, which donated more than $1.5 million, topped Goldman Sachs,” CNN added.

The article also said the amount given to Obama was four times greater than the amount given to Sen. John McCain, the failed GOP nominee.

According to the Washington Examiner’s Mark Tapscott, six of the top 10 donors in federal election between 1989 and 2014 are unions contributing primarily to Democrats.

The Koch brothers, a favorite Democrat whipping post, shows up at number 59.

So, Tapscott asked, “who is really the most evil donor ever?”

“Turns out it’s Act Blue, with just short of $100 million in contributions during its lifetime, which only started in 2004, 15 years after the Evil Koch Bros in the OpenSecrets.org compilation,” he added.

One can only wonder: When will Takano take Goldman Sachs and Act Blue to task for all the money they’ve poured into Democratic campaigns?

Our advise: Don’t hold your breath.
