Apparently the Lefties are willing to pay quite a bit for you to help them campaign here in Colorado. I got this email recently:

What do we know about Colorado Citizens’ Coalition?
The Colorado Citizensâ€™ Coalitionâ€™s financial disclosures show the group is primarily supported by unions, left-leaning political groups and three wealthy political operatives, Pat Stryker, Tim Gill and Rutt Bridges.
The three millionaires, according to the disclosures, have given the coalition $422,500 since mid-June.
Colorado Citizens’ Coalition (CCC) has the same ultra-rich liberal funders as the Colorado Democracy Alliance (CoDA). Mark Grueskin, attorney for CoDA, filed the Secretary of State paperwork for CCC. The bookkeeper for CCC is Julie Wells, who also keeps books for most of the 527s operating under CoDA. So it’s safe to say there is some kind of cozy “progressive” relationship there.
Anyway, if all that’s true, should we guess that the sender of the email perhaps meant “educate the idiots” instead of “educate voters”? Or maybe they’re really just sensitive right now, and decided to tone down the rhetoric a bit.
