For a little while now I’ve been tallying up the connections between two groups:
- No Labels, a Washington DC 501c4 corporation that does not disclose its donors and seeks to sway the outcome of Congressional elections next year
- Americans Elect, a Washington DC 501c4 corporation that does not disclose its donors and seeks to sway the outcome of the Presidential election next year
Here’s a new connection to add to that growing list:
Former candidate for Governor in Maine Eliot Cutler is referred to as a “National Political Thought Leader” and “Citizen Leader” of No Labels and has been featured on a No Labels conference call.
The same Eliot Cutler has been added to the roster of Americans Elect Leadership during the month of October 2011.
Is this connection, like the dozen other connections between Americans Elect and No Labels, a matter of sheer coincidence and dumb luck?
Go ahead, try and ask. I’ve asked Americans Elect about its connections with No Labels a number of times. I’ve never gotten an answer.
