Right Wing’s Disinformation on Sellwood Bridge

Bicyclist on Sellwood BridgeConnecting the dots is always fun, especially in the political game. Example: Right-wing national group heavily funded by the Koch Brothers gives money to Portland “think tank” Cascade Policy Institute. CPI echoes conservative mantra of more cars and less light rail while denying it is influenced by its donors.

The Oregonian’s Steve Duin makes mincemeat of CPI’s attitude that the revised Sellwood Bridge design favors walkers and bicyclists too much. That is echoed by the fact-checkers at Politifact Oregon.

That the long arm of the Koch Brothers is impacting us in Oregon becomes more and more clear all the time.
