I was tipped off to this several hours ago but it looks like my friend David Freddoso of the Washington Examiner beat me to the punch.
The document “National Progressive and Party Infrastructure,” purporting to have been co-written by Rob Stein of the Democracy Alliance, offers new information on how the left is trying to create a permanent left-wing political infrastructure throughout the nation.
Freddoso’s initial observations:
Among the more interesting nuggets:
The mention on page 10 of the “Independent Coordinating Entity: America Votes” under which 40 different groups are “working together to coordinate their independent electoral activity.”
The Atlas Project, which has compiled a database of more than 100,000 campaign documents. This will mean that future liberal campaigns will not need to reinvent the wheel. AP is also involved in plans for redistricting in key states.
On page 18 us a list of groups that have become prominent with their recent television ad buys promoting one or another of President Obama’s agenda items — the Employee Free Choice Act, health insurance reform, etc.
Page 19 looks ahead to the 2010 round of redistricting and how liberal groups are becoming involved to ensure that the process is “fair.”
The document was posted by Wellstone Action, an activist group named after the late Sen. Paul Wellstone, an arch-leftist Democrat who represented Minnesota.
Post script 5 p.m.: Whoever posted the document took it down. Fortunately, I made a PDF copy of it. Read it here.
