Citizens United is a CPAC organization that assisted in Bush's campaign to get him elected through smearing John Kerry.  Michael Boos, Vice-President and General Counsel of Citizens United made a request to Bradley A. Smith, FEC chairman to air a documentary on television regarding John Kerry and John Edwards.  A copy of Bradley Smith's response can be found here. Here is an excerpt from that letter.


You state that Citizens United accepts donations from corporations and individuals. It is not owned or controlled by any political party, political committee or candidate committee.

If you read on, I believe I can prove that Citizens United is owned and controlled by a Republican Consulting Firm, Campaign Solutions.

The website, www.CitizensUnited.org is registered at:
David Bossie
Citizens United
109 Carpenter Drive, Ste 210
Sterling, VA 20164-4467

The administrator and technical contact is Kirk Risinger, LBDesigns, 13900 Old Columbia Pike, Silver Spring, MD 20904-4500. This also happens to be the address of Burtonsville Fire Department, www.Burtonsvillevfd.com. FYI - the administrator of the Burtonsville Fire Dept. site is Jeff Mould and the Technical contact is AnaServe, hostmaster@xo.com, 4800 Concentric Blvd. Saginaw, MI 48604.

Citizens United also sold posters where they thank Hollywood for delivering the election to George Bush. The technical contact person for this website is Becki Donatelli, 118 North Saint Asaph Street, Alexandria, VA 22314.  Which is Campaign Solutions.  PA08 wrote a diary titled FBI looks into hacking attempt in 8th District race.  


The campaign of Democratic congressional candidate Virginia "Ginny" Schrader said today it is bolstering its computer system after a failed hacking incident earlier this week.
The FBI confirmed that it is checking out whether Wednesday's alleged breach into a computer with fund-raising and polling data came from Campaign Solutions, a Virginia-based Republican political consulting firm with deep involvement in GOP races all over the country.

There is obviously a connection between Citizens United and Campaign Solutions. The question I have for my Kossack family is: Is this legal?  

Citizens United also shares a roommate with THIS company.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    A quick Google search turned up this Media Matters item

    David Bossie: embraced by his posse

    [...]
    As Media Matters for America has previously noted, Bossie was fired in 1998 from his job as chief investigator for the House Committee on Government Reform and Oversight -- which was investigating alleged Clinton White House campaign finance abuses -- for his role in releasing selectively edited transcripts of former Clinton administration official Webster Hubbell's prison conversations. (Hubbell went to prison for defrauding his Little Rock, AR, law firm.) According to a May 7, 1998, article in The Washington Times, "Mr. Burton said David Bossie had 'chosen to resign,' although House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Mr. Burton 'fired the one person he should have fired.'" The Washington Times quoted Burton conceding: "A mistake was made in not including in the 30 pages of transcripts a couple of comments made by Mr. Hubbell about himself and the first lady. They were relevant, and they should not have been left out." The Washington Times concluded its piece by noting, "Mr. Bossie is no stranger to controversy. ... Republicans said yesterday that they also blamed Mr. Bossie for the notorious melon-shooting, staged re-enactment of the death of White House Deputy Counsel Vincent W. Foster Jr."
    [...]

    Other facts about Bossie:

    1. Bossie co-wrote, with Floyd Brown, the book Prince Albert: the Life and Lies of Al Gore and is the author of the forthcoming book The Many Faces of John Kerry: Why this Massachusetts Liberal is Wrong for America.

    2. Bossie's May 19, 2004, Washington Times op-ed argued that Jamie Gorelick (9-11 commissioner and former deputy attorney general in the Clinton administration) was "hopelessly conflicted" because of the "wall" that she "was directly involved in ... building and guarding."

    3. A Washington Times editorial published the same day as--and agreeing with--Bossie's op-ed only identifies him as "the "former chief investigator for the House Committee on Government Reform and Oversight."

    4. Bossie was fired from his job as an investigator working for Representative Dan Burton (R-IN) on the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee in 1998. Specifically, he was fired for his role in releasing edited transcripts of former Clinton administration official Webster Hubbell's prison conversations.

    This guy is a major sleazebag.

    Liberal: "I still think it's a respectable word. Its root is "liber," the Latin word for "free," and isn't that what we are all about?"--Mary McGrory
