More on that Americans For Prosperity Koch-up

Via dane101's Jesse Russell:
The address on AFP's envelope allegedly goes to the "absentee ballot processing center." The address is actually that of the Wisconsin Family Action PAC, an organization dedicated to "advancing Judeo-Christian principles and values in Wisconsin by strengthening and preserving marriage, family, life and liberty."
You know those Judeo-Christian principles, such as lying.

Americans For Prosperity's Wisconsin director, Matt Seaholm, is also a guest op-ed contributor to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. The MJS is reportedly considering charging money to read that sort of thing.

Along with the likes of this appalling misinformation.

If you're reading this and have advertising $$$ to spend, send them to Because I suspect Jesse et al are living relatively on mac & cheese and Ramen noodles compared to the MJS editorial mandarins.

And good on Jesse Russell for supplying the attribution to Wisconsin's own Barbara With. When the AFP ballot scam appeared yesterday, for the most part those appearances attributed its emergence to Politico, but in fact Ms. With was all over this thing days previously. Now it's great that these Wisconsin shenanigans get national play via Politico and its counterparts, but many times their substance is noticed first by Badger State activists and bloggers, who never get enough credit.

And most of them do it for no money at all.

We consider dane101 a full-time hobby, but we're taking long overdue steps to change that.
