Subject: NOTMILK - Sleeps With Wolves
> Sleeps With Wolves
> Guess who is sleeping with the enemy? The
> strangest of bedfellows, John Kerry and Monsanto.
> The law firm of Mintz, Levin and Cohn
> represented Biogen, the maker of the genetically engineered
> Flavor-Saver Tomato. Biogen was purchased by Monsanto
> at a time when Ann Veneman was on its board of directors.
> After examining campaign donations from 1997 through 2002,
> I determined that Kerry's top three contributions came from
> Boston Fleet Bank ($75,694), Verizon Communications ($65,862),
> and Mintz, Levin & Cohn, et. al. ($54,700).
> How much has Mintz, Levin & Cohn given Kerry for his 2004 run?
> The shocker: $112,250!
> Mintz, Levin, Cohn has acted as counsel in funding biotech
> acquisitions by raising nearly $800 million. They
> also represent Monsanto in PCB litigation.
> Kerry's association with Mintz, Levin, Cohn is as deep as
> his relationship with Monsanto and other biotech companies.
> In 2000, after Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) introduced a
> labeling law that would have given Americans the right to
> know whether the foods they ate contained genetically
> modified organisms, Kerry refused to support that bill.
> Kerry is the man who claims that he does not
> take corporate money.
> When Kerry was accused of being just another
> good old boy Republican by a fellow Democrat. Kerry remarked:
> "I've spent a career fighting against special interests.
> I'll take a second seat to nobody in this race with respect
> to my lifetime fights against special interests and my efforts
> to run campaigns on a high standard."
