I'm a Dallas native, and the local AM radio station 1080 KRLD broke a story that is apparently gaining momentum that could be a huge scandal.
The dealerships that were forced to close had one thing in common: Republican support.
Total donations to the Obama campaign by these closed dealerships TOTALED $200. It was one dealership in Waco, TX.
Total donations to the McCain campaign by these closed dealerships
They read off information about other candidates and their donations, but you get the idea of the ratio we are talking about here.
Furthermore, research has shown that some of the biggest donations made from dealerhips to the Democratic Party or to the President during his campaign now have a monopoly in certain parts of the country when it comes to dealership locations... an average of 20 miles is what they gave on the radio.
One dealership in particular was top 10 nationwide in sales, but a big Republican donator as well...
The show is done by a democrat and a republican, but they were shocked at what they found when digging up about the issue.
The show said the research has been done by a few different independent groups, but I haven't found a website with links to studies.
It could be invented, but it's rather creepy if it's true.
