Health Care Protester Exposed As GOP Operative

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/08/06/health-care-pr...


Congressman Steve Kagen, (D-Wisc.) found himself interrupted during a town hall meeting on health care on Thursday evening which, considering the boisterous protests going on at these events all week, wasn't much of a surprise.

But towards the end of the Wisconsin Democrat's health care forum something a bit peculiar happened. A woman who initially identified herself as "just a mom from a few blocks away" who was "not affiliated with a political party" was outed by a reporter as a GOP operative who worked for Kagen's election opponent John Gard as well as the Republican Party of Wisconsin and the Republican National Committee.

Her LinkedIn profile shows her as still being a member of the RNC and state party, as well as an adviser to the IT committee of the state party.

2. Despite the fact she lied
at least she let the others have their say. Look, hecklers and low key operatives are not right but it's kindof standard fare everywhere. The new thing of shutting down the meeting or making people afraid to even show up because the nutjobs might either be violent or provoke violence is way beyond acceptable.
