Money vs. the people - money wins every time

Once again, a multinational corporation has shut down a ProjectUSA billboard campaign.

ProjectUSA’s planned billboard campaign in Iowa has been brought to a screeching halt by the Des Moines division of Clear Channel Outdoor. The billboards, which would have informed voters in Iowa’s 3rd congressional district about their representative’s immigration voting record, were nixed by Clear Channel—an outdoor advertising presence in 51 countries world-wide, and the only company offering outdoor advertising availability in Des Moines.

Even though we advertised the same message in the same district with the same company two years ago (both the Republic and Clear Channel survived…as did Boswell, thanks to this ninny) the division’s new president, Tim Jameson, declined this year’s copy for fear of angering Rep. Boswell (D-Iowa).

Here are the ads that ProjectUSA had hoped to run.
