OFA’s url is BarackObama.com, and they’re “non-partisan?”
Top donors, volunteers and organizers for President Barack Obama’s new nonprofit met Wednesday at a Washington hotel to discuss how the group can stay active and relevant in the president’s second term — but the group’s leader swears the effort is non-partisan.
“I want to say a word about what we aren’t: We are not a partisan organization,” said Jon Carson, a former White House official who is now serving as the executive director of Organizing for Action.
“We are here to move this shared progressive agenda forward,” he added. “We will advocate to Democrats to move that agenda forward. We will advocate to Republicans. But issues are our focus.”
But while the group has vowed to remain nonpartisan, the lineup of speakers featured a raft of former White House, campaign and administration officials — all Democratic partisans.
