Tonight’s Guest is William Klein from Murray Hill:

On Saturday, the Washington Post published a front-page story about the corporation Murray Hill running for Congress: “After the Supreme Court declared that corporations have the same rights as individuals when it comes to funding political campaigns, the self-described progressive firm took what it considers the next logical step: declaring for office.

“‘Until now, corporate interests had to rely on campaign contributions and influence-peddling to achieve their goals in Washington,’ the candidate, who was unavailable for an interview, said in a statement. ‘But thanks to an enlightened Supreme Court, now we can eliminate the middle-man and run for office ourselves.’

“William Klein, a ‘hired gun’ who has been enlisted as Murray Hill’s campaign manager, said the firm appears to be the first ‘corporate person’ to run for office and is promising a spirited campaign that ‘puts people second, or even third.'” http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/03/12/AR2010031204127.html
