Tobacco Industry Hack?
Regarding a Clinton administration proposal to restrict cigarette company sponsorship of sporting events, including stock car racing:

"It wasn't too many months ago the Surgeon General wanted to legalize marijuana. Now he wants to regulate tobacco. So, we're, we're confused, but I agree with the T-shirts I see being worn around. Let's leave it up to NASCAR, not the FDA."

Bob Dole?

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
