PACs and phantom candidates

One of the local Republican candidates running for our state legislature has never engaged in a public debate or candidate forum, has not held even one event to meet the public. We're told he manages a small local business, but no one knows what it is. We've seen his photo on the mailers, but no one has met the guy. Yet out-of-area PACs have spent nearly $500K on slick glossy mailers promoting him while sending other mailers trashing his Democratic opponent.

That's a lot of money to spend on a "phantom" candidacy. Anyone here have something similar going on in their neighborhood?

Heads Up: James O’Keefe Skulking Around In Colorado



We just got a tip that infamous conservative "gotcha game" artist James O'Keefe is on the ground in Colorado, prowling around Democratic-aligned campaign organizations. O'Keefe reportedly showed up at the Fort Collins office of GOTV group New Era Colorado yesterday, and according to the report we got, "tried to force his way in," necessitating a police call. We can't confirm any of those details, but O'Keefe himself was positively ID'ed. We'll update with any additional information we get about that incident.

For those who haven't had the pleasure, James O'Keefe is one of the right wing's most prolific and controversial provacateurs, but he also played a major role in the partisan destruction of the community group ACORN after posing as a pimp and seeking assistance with a hidden camera. Less known is the fact that he was later forced to pay over $100,000 to one of the ACORN workers he selectively edited. O'Keefe later faced charges for attempting to tamper with the phone lines of a U.S. Senator. Most recently, O'Keefe filmed himself crossing the Mexican border wearing an Osama bin Laden Halloween costume, a stunt that resulted in considerably more ridicule than the intended instilling of xenophobic fear.

Anyway, Democratic and otherwise lefty campaign hands across the state, if you see this guy at your office, be advised that he is not there to make you look good.
