Xe (now Blackwater) and their Connection to the GOP

What is Xe's (Blackwater's) connection to the GOP?

Do your homework.

Erik Prince, owner of Xe (formerly known as "Blackwater") is the brother of Betsy DeVos.

Betsy DeVos is the former head of the Michigan GOP (Holland, Michigan).

Betsy's husband, Dick DeVos, ran for Governor of Michigan and lost to now Governor Jennifer Granholm (D).

Dick DeVos father started Amway Corporation. And Dick DeVos inherited it all.

So Dick's brother-in-law, owns Xe (formerly known as Blackwater).

1. Dick DeVos' father is still alive
so he didn't "inherited it all."

I'm so happy DeVos lost in 2006.

3. I just want to make sure everyone understands the connection
Just trying to build some redundancy in the system.

Please let everyone know this connection.

Promise?

4. Way back in the 60s we were warned that the Amway Company was
a repug shill.
