Essential Estrogen: Chung's resignation raises specter of last year's unresolved conflict of interest

Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen

David Chung, author of Hawkeye GOP, has announced that he is resigning
his elected position on the Iowa Republican State Central Committee so
that he can freely volunteer for the gubernatorial campaign of
Christian Fong. This move was done, he said, both because of promises
he made to be neutral in primaries and perceived conflicts of
interest. In reading his letter, however, I was reminded of another
case of conflict of interest that has yet to be addressed by Iowa
Republicans. In the fall of 2008, Iowa Right to Life published their
pre-election newsletter. In that newsletter, the organization attacked
a Republican candidate for U.S. House, labeling her "a great
pretender" on anti-abortion issues.
