The "League of American Voters"
The League of American Voters is an anti-health care reform Republican front group run by GOP operatives with a history of hateful and extreme rhetoric. The group was accused by the non-partisan League of Women Voters of intentionally using a name that sounded like their highly-respected group. While it claims to be non-partisan, the staff of LAV includes a GOP communications operative with a history of working for the health industry, a Republican operative and former candidate, a former press aide to President Ford who compared President Obama to Hitler, an extreme radical Rabbi who has said President Obama's policies pose as great a threat to Jews as Hitler did and its health-care reform ads were written by Fox News commentator, Dick Morris.
