RIAA ‘helping GOP to retake majority’

RIAA:- Recording Industry vs The People’s Ray Beckerman was astounded when music-loving politician Joe Crowley was discovered about to regale attendees at a, “soiree located at the lobbying headquarters of the Recording Industry Association of America,” as the Huffington Post put it.

Actually, the phrase Ray used was, “I am sick”.

But that was nothing.

Now the RIAA, “currently in a legislative battle over performance royalties,” is, “rolling out the red carpet for the Republican group 218,” says SmartBrief, adding:

“The group, which is looking to help the GOP retake a majority in the House of Representatives, is holding an event at the RIAA’s headquarters in downtown Washington, D.C.

“The RIAA says it regularly rents its space for events.”

So it gets paid twice: once by its owners, Vivendi Universal, EMI, Warner Music and Sony Music; and, again by politicians when it whores — sorry, hires, its space to politicians so it can schmooze — sorry, lobby, them on behalf of Vivendi Universal, EMI, Warner Music and Sony Music.

I can't say that I am surprised at that news. We all know that the RIAA likes to have it's finger up the butt of politicians.  :vomit:
