H$U$ In Joplin?

Along with the disaster in Joplin, MO, Missourians are cleaning up the Proposition B mess left behind by The Humane Society of the United States.  But now, H$U$ has decided to join in the politicization of the tragedy in Joplin, MO by purchasing an ad in the Tweetdeck timeline for the hash-tag #Joplin.

If you don’t use Tweetdeck, companies / groups / individuals can purchase advertising to remain at the top of a column as other tweets go by.  The “Promoted by HSUS” message in yellow is the indicator that the ad was placed there.

How much is H$U$ spending to actually help animals in the Joplin area?  If past history is any indicator, they will spend 99% on themselves, advertising and fundraising… …and 1% on the animals.
