National Republican Trust PAC
This far right organization is best known for running a vicious ad at the end of the 2008 campaign smearing President Barack Obama through his association with the controversial Re, Jeremiah Wright. An ad it ran against Democrat Scott Murphy in last year's special election in New York had to be pulled when its claim that Murphy had created 1,000 jobs in India was proved flat-out false. Currently its website is touting "The Pelosi Index," a scale that ranges from liberty to tyranny on which congressional candidates are ranked. The site urges people to hold their legislator's "feet to the fire" in the upcoming election.
