Lying liar and new CNN political commentator Stephanie Cutter has already vouched for former IRS commissioner Doug Shulman today, assuring Jake Tapper that nothing nefarious was going on during Shulmanâs 157 visits to the White House while the IRS was targeting Tea Party groups for harassment. Weâre not quite prepared to take Cutterâs word for it, and now the Daily Caller is reporting that Shulmanâs wife,Â Susan L. Anderson, just happens to work with a liberal lobbying group dedicated to keeping all that filthy money out of politics. Crazy, huh?
ShulmanâsÂ wifeÂ Susan L. Anderson is the senior program advisor for the Washington-based nonprofit organizationÂ Public Campaign, which claims that itÂ âis laying the foundation for reform by working with a broad range of organizations, including local community groups, around the country that are fighting for change and national organizations whose members are not fairly represented under the current campaign finance system.â
Public CampaignÂ receives âmajor fundingâÂ from the pro-Obamacare alliance Health Care for America NOW!,Â which is comprised ofÂ the labor unions AFL-CIO, AFSCME, SEIU, and the progressive activist organization Move On, among others.
Public Campaign president and CEOÂ Nick Nyhart likely wouldnât hesitate to sign Bette Midlerâs thank you card to the IRS for targeting those hate groups like the Tea Party. In a statement earlier this month, he blamed the IRS scandal on âa few bad applesâ who ruined a good thing â cracking down on âpolitical groups that are hiding behind a 501(c)4 status.â
The Daily Caller notes that Public Campaign shares a floor withÂ Common Cause and the Center for Progressive Leadership, just a couple of nonprofits that do business in the neighborhood.
