The people behind Priorities USA Action are well connected to Obama and the Democratic party. The political strategist for the organization, Bill Burton, formerly served as the president's deputy White House press secretary. Before that, he was a spokesman for Obama's 2008 campagn.
Priorities did not return requests for information, but others involved with the group include:
- Sean Sweeney, who served as Rahm Emanuel's chief of staff, when Emanuel -- now the mayor of Chicago -- was in turn Obama's White House chief of staff;
- Paul Begala, longtime Democratic strategist who helped engineer former president Bill Clinton's back-to-back White House victories in the 1990s, now best known as a CNN contributor;
- Greg Speed, a veteran of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee who is now executive director of America Votes, an organization that shares targeted voter lists among progressive groups.
This is the Super PAC that Bill Maher Donated $1,000,000 to help Pres. Obama's re-election. And to stick his tongue out at Rush Limbaugh-nah na na nah na.
