    Question Who is this?

    Was searching the web on "Tea Party" and stumbled onto this site:

    About us - WhoRunsGov.com, a Wash Post Co

    Haven't read enough to be sure of their agenda. No idea who is funding it. But it looks pro-current administration.

    Might be a site to keep an eye on (rather like the Brady gang's Scorecards).

    Along those lines, I wonder how they listened in on "a private conference call, a group of top Tea Party and conservative organizers"?

    http://theplumline.whorunsgov.com/pr...t-all-is-goal/

    Who is this source who got himself on the call (the AFL-CIO, and AFL-CIO spokesman Eddie Vale)?

    How did he get in?

    Pure fiction? Duplicity?

    Anyone know who the site is run/funded by?

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    There's another site with a name a bit like that, IIRC, one a good deal more honest. (Rats. I did not import that bunch of book marks, and cannot find the site on Google now.)

    OpenSecrets.org: Money in Politics -- See Who's Giving & Who's Getting is a very good, even handed source, if that's what you are looking for.

    The fact that it is a Washington Post Company publication tells you a lot about their point of view.
