An independent website of evangelicals that supports former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has been using opposition research provided by the Romney campaign, as well as accepting funds from donors steered to the site by the Romney camp. The site does not accept funds directly from the Romney campaign.
More here - but to cut to the chase, the "Evangelicals for Mitt" is giving out misinformation apparently in exchange for referrals of people with wads of cash in their pockets they give to the Frenches?
Today, the Evangelicals for Mitt operation has spent its time attacking conservative Republican presidential candidates, most recently former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and unannounced candidate, former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson.
Thompson, who has made it clear that he does not support Roe v. Wade, and who was certified as pro-life by the National Right to Life Committee back in 1994, has continued to state that he is pro-life. But the Evangelicals for Mitt, using research provided by the Romney campaign, has been putting out information on its blog that Thompson, as well as other Republican Senate candidates, were not.
"That's simply not the case," says a Tennessee state Republican Party official. "Anyone who says that men like Thompson and [Bill] Frist weren't opposed to Roe v. Wade wasn't paying attention or just didn't care."
