Tea Party Express to Hell: Charity/Super PAC Pretends to Send Care Packages to Soldiers, While Actually Fundraising

Tea Party Express to Hell: Charity/Super PAC Pretends to Send Care Packages to Soldiers, While Actually Fundraising
In an exclusive for the Daily Beast, ProPublica writer Kim Barker exposes the “pro-troop” charity Move America Forward for misusing donations collected under the auspices of sending soldiers care packages. After adopting a battalion, the Marines of Geronimo, the group started a fundraising drive claiming the care packages sent to the soldiers in Afghanistan might be “the only mail they will receive all year.” The truth?

Lobbyists Bidding to Block Government Regs Set Sights on Secretive White House Office
OIRA operates largely in secret, exempt from most requests under the Freedom of Information Act. It routinely declines to release the changes it has proposed, the evidence it has relied upon to make them, or the identities and affiliations of White House advisers and other agencies' staff it has consulted. OIRA doesn't even disclose the names and credentials of its employees other than its two most senior officials. Maybe that's why you've never heard of OIRA.
