Obama’s Organizing for America Already Linked to Questionable Political Groups

You may recall the political action committees working for Obama during the last couple of elections. Now, get ready for Organizing for America.

This already-controversial group was created to take over where Obama’s previous election website-organization left off. In layman’s terms, Organizing for America is like a year-round election group that continually raises money to support politicians, groups and people who support Obama’s agenda. Obama pulled the tarp off OfA (as it’s known to be abbreviated) in late January.

Critics are accusing Obama of never coming out of campaign mode. Even after the election, he continues to incessantly travel the country, giving speeches, making appearances and trying to sell his stance on the economy, politics — and lately, guns.

Organizing for America, according to a pitch Obama gave about his new organization, is going to be funded and supported by grass-roots activists outside Washington D.C.

However, according to Politico,  that is very different from the truth:

In its first days, Organizing for Action has closely affiliated itself with insider liberal organizations funded by mega-donors like George Soros and corporations such as Lockheed Martin, Citi and Duke Energy. And it has quietly sought support from the same rich donors who backed Obama’s campaigns, asking for help from Democratic donors and bundlers in town for the inauguration at a closed-door corporate-sponsored confab that featured Bill Clinton as the keynote speaker.”

Numerous representatives from major corporations attended a meeting at the Newseum in Washington D.C. to hear pitches from Organizing for America. They included reps from Walmart, PG&E and Microsoft! More from Politico:

An OfA spokeswoman declined to comment on the group’s presentation at the Newseum, its fundraising or relationship with other deep-pocketed liberal groups.”

It appears Organizing for America is nothing more than an election-style group, designed to relentlessly push Obama’s agenda with year-round lobbying, pressure and influence on business and political leaders. So much for grass-roots.
