Behold: National Right to Work Committee’s 2010 Iowa “Target List”

The National Right to Work Committee is a 501(c)(4) organization. They are not supposed to be engaged in direct or indirect campaign activity for candidates.

So why did they need a detailed spreadsheet called the “Iowa Target List” that goes into detail about each race?

Look at the National Right to Work Committee’s 2010 Iowa Target List here. 

The list was attached to this email in 2010. Laura Lee  worked at National Right to Work Committee, as did Gamble, Fusaro and Coburn.

Their IRS 990s forms say that they don’t engage in direct or indirect campaign activity on behalf of candidates.

  1. So why did they need a detailed spreadsheet called the “Iowa Target List” that goes into detail about each race?

    Because 1: Right to work is a political issue and 2: the ones most impacted by RTW laws, the labor unions, are NOT restricted in who they can pour money into. The NRTWC would naturally be extremely interested in the various political races because of the very sharp divide on their target issue between the two parties. Democrats are almost 100% guaranteed to oppose what they are working for.

    So they have a “target list”. Do you have any evidence of anything they DID with that list?

  2. Looking more carefully, it looks like there are two tabs for each sort of race. The first tab of each group seems to be the results of some questionnaire that was sent to the candidate to see where they stand on issues. The second seems to be where each one stands on specifically the right to work issue. Looks legitimate to me, so far. They would want to know where the various candidates stand on their issue. They ARE pretty much focused on one specific issue and it is political. Only politicians can bring about right to work laws. This would help in lobbying efforts on their issue. Nothing here that bothers me.
