The MSM has duly taken note that the North Carolina legal firm of Moore & Van Allen is doing work for “AQAH,” aka “Americans for Quality Affordable Healthcare,” which is anything but, as it’s fighting to kill the reform legislation, but its spokesperson refuses to name the clients who have hired them. In the ways of the MSM, the search engine is broken… or lacks motivation. We do have confirmed sightings in NV, ME, and LA. It was named as Republican astroturf in a front page post at GOS, a start, but didn’t go any further.
It’s going to be the same special interests, just using more identity masks.
Nevada, Maine, Louisiana.
First thing that makes me think of is the Tea Party Patriots doing their tour bus routine with the Russo Marsh/Move America Forward Republican PR firm, because that PAC did a bunch of anti Harry Reid advertising this summer and toured thru Nevada doing teaparty rallies (which the FEC is all over their butts for with that filing of Our Country Deserves Better PAC ). And Prop 8 money from Utah and CA was recently in Maine, letting the 2 moderate lady Republican Senators, Snowe & Collins, know that the Tea Party apparatus was gearing up for Maine 2010. Louisiana, that’s easy, Sen. Landrieu is on the Republican’s list of mostly likely to be swingable, and she’s also a top recipient of Dem Senate Campaign Committee funding. Louisiana is an oil state.
We’re going to go do some deep sea exploring.
