Yet Another Lefty Group

Another left-wing boot camp has arrived on the scene and it’s a spinoff of, the radical group created to rationalize Bill Clinton’s presidential peccadillos.

As reported by “Alyson” of RedState, the New Organizing Institute (NOI) just recently hosted an all-expenses paid training session for 40 lefty bloggers. What is odd is that the bloggers, a category of people for whom digital logorrhea is the norm, are largely remaining silent about their experiences at the Blogger Summit and Training that took place March 14 through March 16. The event was co-hosted by George Soros affiliates the Center for American Progress Action Fund and Media Matters for America, along with Center for Independent Media.

The New Organizing Institute itself was founded by two former labor activists who worked on the Kerry-Edwards campaign in 2004, Judith Freeman and Zack Exley. According to their posted bios, Freeman was a senior political strategist in the AFL-CIO’s political department, and Exley was Organizing Director at, and “played a part in early [Howard] Dean Internet strategy.” Yeaahaaah!!! Exley is currently a Senior Strategist with D.C.-based fundraising and communications firm, O’Brien McConnell Pearson (OMP), which does work both for the William J. Clinton Foundation and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

NOI has been active for two years, according to its online events archive. If it hasn’t received Democracy Alliance money already, presumably it will soon.
