The Denver Post is reporting that internal e-mails show individuals connected to the 527 Trailhead Group were involved in an effort to discredit labor unions through the issue of illegal immigration.
From the article:
“Ideally, we can come up with a coordinated legal, political, media and policy plan to present to a larger group for buy-in,” Stansbery wrote.
Alan Philp of Trailhead – a key player in the e-mail talks – said candidates who have received money from groups that don’t certify the donors are legal “should return the money.”
The Republicans were also working to change campaign-finance rules to effectively crack down on unions. Republican lawyers attended a meet-and-greet with Dennis before going over their proposed rule changes with her in February.
Despite the meeting, Dennis is saying that she was unaware of the GOP strategy.
