Has anyone heard of this organization?

by Diana Forum moderator / March 10, 2004 11:21 PM PST

My nephew sent this one to me and I'd never heard of it before. Some of the links aren't finished so, I assume, it's a work in progress.

Notice the site is against certain people, but doesn't name the ones supported by any donations. All the people associated with this group are a rerun of the Clinton Administration. Check out the names involved in the article below.

Ellen collecting money for Hillary Clinton

The strength in Hillary's campaign comes from a
very political lady, Ellen R. Malcolm, who was the founder,
in 1985, of the aptly named EMILY's List.

EMILY claims U.S. Sens. Barbara
Mikulski, Dianne Feinstein, Patty Murray, Mary
Landrieu and a score of congressional people. The list has
about 73,000 members and in 2003 raised $23 million.
But don't be surprised to find that every one of these
ladies is of the Democrat persuasion; after all, Ellen
Malcolm is one of the grande dames of that party....(more at link)


Which brings us to a new pro-Hillary group that
is doing just what she wants -- attacking George Bush, and
attempting to diminish his lead in the polls. This
new group, America Coming Together, or ACT,
is led by the
one and only Ellen Malcolm. And she has help beyond
the expectations of a political fund-raiser. Rallying
around the Anyone but Bush cause is billionaire financier....(more at link)

ACT's planners are almost as interesting as their
money people, with many of them coming from the
AFL-CIO and the Clinton White House....(more at link)

Event co-chair Laurie David, left, speaks to the media Tuesday night. ACT President Ellen Malcolm is in the background.

==========================================

two newly formed political action committees made up of actors and Hollywood activists huddled Tuesday night in Beverly Hills to outline their goals and to dispute conservative media characterizations of their motives.

America Coming together (ACT) and The Media Fund are "determined to bring people back into the political process" and, according to ACT President Ellen Malcolm, address the...(see link, or not)

The Media Fund is headed by Harold Ickes, a key White House political strategist for Bill Clinton who helped his wife, Hillary, get elected to the Senate.

...Joining David as co-hosts at the event that was called a "Mandatory Meeting to Change the Leadership in America" were such backstage money-and-influence forces as Marge Tabenkin, political adviser to singer Barbra Streisand;...

Hi, Diana.

Haven't heard of it specifically, but there are hundreds of grass-roots anti-Bush web sites cropping up, trying to even the playing field by reversing the Republican Party's sale of the government to Corporate America. Of course, the Republicans are getting worried, which is why you find posts like Ed's and James' trying to claim that the Republicans are the "grass roots" party, and that the Dems are behaving improperly by using the web to raise large amounts of money from small contributors. MoveOn.org, Emily's list, and ABB are three of the better known such groups. Another interesting group is
The Committee to Re-defeat the President; the "speech" by Bush on their site (it starts playing automagically when you visit) is really a hoot.

Hi Dave:

I think the biggest clue that the Republicans are worried is the slew of "Kerry is a Martian!" posts we've seen in this forum.
