It all started a few short years ago, when New York millionaire
Step One:Dispatch Todd McCauley, a field representative for Rich's US Term Limits organization, to register a group called “
Step Two is then obvious: Write fake letters to the editor of The State newspaper under the pseudonym “Dennis Sinned” and get caught red-handed.
It sounds foolproof already, but SCRG’s sleeve is stuffed with more aces than the bullpen at the All-Star Game.
The group accidentally uses Howard Rich’s phone number on their tax return. Then they launch a radio ad that mispronounces “
It’s a floundering, flailing, FUBAR-fest all around. All paid for by, well we don’t know who.
