Blog for Iowa: Braley Attacked by Enron Lobbyist

Excerpted from this post at Blog for Iowa

A well connected Enron lobbyist has entered the First District Congressional race funding negative campaign ads against Bruce Braley. Sue Walden, a former lobbyist for Enron, is listed in IRS documents as the contact person for the 527 smear group, "Americans for Honesty in Issues". She was also a Bush Pioneer for 2000 and 2004 and a Bush Ranger for 2004 (http://www.whitehouseforsale.org/contributorsandpaybacks/pioneer_search.cfm). Americans for Honesty on Issues (EIN: 134341094) is a 527 committee running attack ads against nine Democrat candidates in the 2006 mid-term elections, the New York Times reported.
