In an open letter to four CEO's, Texas Senator Ted Cruz today blasted Mayor Rahm Emanuel's government bullying of two financial institutions; Bank of America and TD Bank. Emanuel recently threatened to stop city business with these two institutions in his own letter last week.
"In Texas, we have a more modest view of government. We do not accept the notion that government should behave as bullies, trying to harass or pressure private companies into enlisting in a political lobbying campaign."
This story illustrates how Chicago Democrat Ward Boss style tactics are playing out on the national level.
