What Aren't Democrats Exposing Amway/Quixtar/Alticor?
Amway/Quixtar/Alticor is a giant fraud operation that is a de facto ATM machine for the Republican Party (I Google bombed Amway/Quixtar a while ago). Right now, Dick DeVos, the son of Amway founder Richard DeVos, is running for governor in Michagan (as a Republican, of course). Although DeVos is behind incumbent, Democrat Jennifer Granholm, it is not an insurmountable deficit.
Reasons Democrats should be doing more to expose this huge business fraud. 1) It would sink DeVos' chances to become Michigan's governor; 2) A weakened Amway would mean less money going to Republicans; and 3) For humanitarian purposes. People who join Amway are being sold a bill of goods and are being bilked out of their hard-earned money (read former Amway distributor Eric Scheibeler's book Merchants of Deception online and Chris Hansen's NBC Dateline investigation for the shocking truth about this business cult).
Someone has the right idea and created a Devos campaign commerical parody:
UPDATE: Here's another video on DeVos (thanks Phil)
