New Info On Nunnelee Attacks: Is the SEIU Behind It?

The Alan Nunnelee camp sent out a second email today referencing the phone calls and mail pieces that have been attacking the state Senator and Congressional candidate. “The Nunnelee Campaign for Congress has been advised of a sinister liberal campaign to influence the Republican primary by attacking the most formidable candidate in the field,” the second email said.

They also stated that the address on the mailing matches that of Citizens for Strength and Security (here is their website). Here is information on the PAC from Open Secrets. They received about $800k from the SEIU this election cycle. Most of their major contributors includes large labor groups such as CWA, Teamsters, and UFCW (in addition to SEIU).

The fact that they are targeting Nunnelee at this point (the primary vs. the general election) is very interesting. The Nunnelee camp obviously believes this is a cynical attempt by liberals to bring down the perceived front-runner or just cause all around chaos in the primary.

Nunnelee’s campaign took the occasion to attack Rep. Travis Childers and labor unions: “The congressman’s apparent partnership with left-wing labor unions reflects just how out-of-touch he is with middle-class families and seniors of North Mississippi. We are calling on Travis Childers to denounce the dirty tricks perpetrated by the D.C. liberals who support him. If he refuses to do so, it would only further cement the perception around here that he’s gone Washington after just two years in office.”

    Each of us can say and think whatever we like about Glenn Beck, but I think we all will agree that when stuff like this comes out everyone has to admit that he knows more than most give him credit for.
    The really scary part is that when he calls these people out they do not even deny what they are doing they just attack him with “their” people in the federal government. As a matter of fact I read an article a few days ago that PETA is actually by large amounts of stock in big companies in order to vote on that companies business matters. The Federal Government being influenced and ran by labor unions. PETA making decisions about where and what we eat. Think of the ramifications of that!
    We need to be united on all fronts after Tuesday!

    ME,

    You are sure rught on this one. Pelosi cannot afford to loose another seat in the House. This may be just one of many dirty tricks that we can look forward to no matter who wins. Labor Unions have so much money and influence that they can use to get whatever they want so who knows what they will do next. Money and power, money and power, that is what it is all about.
