Newt and InfoCision: A Winning Solution for Newt

So the election season is up and running. More and More Shadowy 527s are coming out of the bush to use InfoCision with it's vast army of Christian Republican Extremists to hunt and destroy the Clinton's. And bring theocracy to America. It almost seems like the 1990's again. One can almost see the InfoCision script writers searching their archives for a smear that raised $50 or more in 1994 to recycle and try to get the poor donor to give $75 this time- Because we have to Stop Her Now!. Why even Newt is back on the scene- but then he never went away- He just formed a 527. He and InfoCision have a new 527- It is called American Solutions for Winning the Future

It claims to offer much the same as his GOPAC and that solution seems to be, Hillary Clinton is bad for American. And Don't you believe Newt will make a good president? It seems a very good question any potential donor may have for the InfoCision telemarketer is: Are all these political action committees really doing anything? Or is Newt just fattening his pockets while getting back at his old adversaries? The answer would be yes. For a better understanding of the Newt and InfoCisions newest client is to look at Linda Chavez:

Back in 2001, Republican activist Linda Chavez was Bush’s first choice to serve as Secretary of Labor, looking out for the interests of working people nationwide. She ran into a little trouble when the White House learned that Chavez failed tell the Bush gang about housing a Guatemalan woman whom she hired illegally to clean her house, and then encouraged a neighbor not to talk about the cleaning woman to the FBI when agents asked questions during her background check. Oops.

But never fear, this was a temporary setback for Chavez, who has built a successful network of political action committees. The problem, as the WaPo reported in a fascinating front-page expose, is that Chavez’s PACs don’t appear to do anything — except raise money.

In the years since she was forced to pull her nomination as Bush’s labor secretary after admitting payments to an illegal immigrant, Chavez and her immediate family members have used phone banks and direct-mail solicitations to raise tens of millions of dollars, founding several political action committees with bankable names: the Republican Issues Committee, the Latino Alliance, Stop Union Political Abuse and the Pro-Life Campaign Committee. Their solicitations promise direct action in the “fight to save unborn lives,” a vigorous struggle against “big labor bosses” and a crippling of “liberal politics in the country.”

That’s not where the bulk of the money wound up being spent, however.

Josh Marshall has more. Maybe all maybe money Newt is paying InfoCision will go towards the new stadium...But there is serious doubt about that. One can hardly wait to see what 527 comes out next...
