Republican Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky has a reputation of being both one of the most wealthy United States Senators and also one who supports the with the strictest drug policies.
McConnell obtained this wealth partly due to his wife and her family. The Chao family has been funding McConnell since the late 1980s and also have a thriving shipping business. According to reports today, however, that business may mean bad news for McConnell.
Via Conservative Post:
A cargo ship connected to Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell was recently stopped and searched before departing from Colombia. During the search, Colombian Coast Guard agents seized roughly 90 pounds of cocaine.
The drugs were found on the Ping May, which is a vessel operated by the Foremost Maritime Corporation, a company owned by Mitch McConnell’s in-laws, the Chao family.
The Chao family has been funding McConnell since the late 1980s. Years later, in 1993, McConnell married Elaine Chao and secured the Chao family as one of his primary sources for investments.
McConnell sponsored “The Enhanced Marijuana Penalties Act”, a bill who’s purpose is to increase mandatory minimum sentencing for people caught with marijuana.
The war on drugs in the United States sounds so great on paper. Drugs=bad, removal of drugs=good. However, many politicians today are using catch phrases like this, and others, stringing words together that sound good as a front for whatever agenda they decide to push. Obviously, I doubt that McConnell is actually out hissing at passing pedestrians, peddling narcotics. However, if he were really as anti-drugs as he says he is, he wouldn’t have any affiliation with any company that transports them.
Hopefully, his constituency will see what kind of “conservative” he really is, and take any precautions possible to keep him from remaining in power any longer than he has to be.
