This is Dem Chicago Politics

July 12, 2012

It sort of makes you sick. All Dems have to campaign on is vicious attacks on their competition on a personal level. They can’t campaign on the fundamental issues because big government socialism (ObamaLand) won’t buy it with most Americans, who prefer freedom and choice.

A conservative watchdog group says they have uncovered private opposition research files compiled by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee on dozens of Republican candidates for Congress that accidentally ended up on Google.

The group, Media Trackers, said they found the files — which include research on Florida Rep. Allen West — online because of an “IT glitch on the DCCC’s web server that allowed Google searches for opposition research terms related to Republican candidates to pull the files up.”

The group released 12 of the files they uncovered on its website Thursday.

“This could be the single biggest political intelligence coup of the 2012 battle for Congress,” said Brian Sikma, a spokesman for Media Trackers. “The twelve files we are releasing today are not available on the DCCC website and the intended timing of their release – if at all – by Democrats is not known.”

Other Republicans included in the uncovered files include New York Republican Nan Hayworth and California Rep. Dan Lungren.

Sikma said the information provides “provide a treasure trove of information outlining likely lines of attack that Democratic candidates will use against Republicans.”
