MoveOn.org Funds Ad Against Congressman

August 30, 2007

In a maneuver highlighting their increased political power, Moveon.org, the  DC-based liberal antiwar group, is funding an ad against  Congressman Baird of Washington state for “flip=flopping on the war. From MSNBC

Baird, along with Sens. Clinton and Carl Levin, recently said the troop surge in Iraq is showing signs of progress — at least in Al-Anbar province. Baird had voted against the Iraq military action in 2003.

“’MoveOn.org Political Action Committee is sponsoring the ad to call attention to the congressman’s decision to go against the views of his constituents, and his previous voting record, to support President Bush’s failed policy in Iraq,’ the group said in an e-mailed statement.”
