A Noteworthy Connection

Breitbart.com is reporting that former IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman's wife works for Public Campaign, which Breitbart describes as a "leftist campaign reform group."   Not surprisingly, Public Campaign disputes that characterization.

So see for yourself.  Here is the Public Campaign web site.  A cursory inspection fails to find any stated support for any initative propunded by anyone without a "D" after his or her name -- but you be the judge.

At the very least, Public Campaign does seem as though it is the type of group that would be particularly agitated by the rise of Tea Party groups using the 501(c)(4) vehicle.  How much impact (if any) that had on Doug Shulman or his thinking has yet to be determined -- but at the very least, it's worth pointing out.

No doubt the MSM would have done so had the wife of a commissioner accused of targeting liberal groups worked for a right-leaning ideological interest group.
