Blankenship: Ditch Cocaine Mitch!

Don Blankenship, imprisoned for a year after the Big Branch mine explosion killed 29 miners, is running for a U.S. Senate seat in West Virginia. Click here for an article at The Hill by Brett Samuels, entitled "Blankenship releases ad calling McConnell 'cocaine Mitch.'" (The ad has since been removed.)

The article gives a possible explanation for the "Cocaine Mitch" handle:
Politico reported that Blankenship may be referring to a 2014 report in the left-leaning Nation magazine that drugs were once found on a shipping vessel owned by McConnell’s wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao.
