Topic - Organizing For Action
President Obama gave supporters their marching orders for promoting his agenda Monday night, urging an advocacy group that was created from the remnants of his re-election campaign to get "fired up" for a summer lobbying effort.
The White House is strenuously denying that Organizing for Action, President Obama's former re-election campaign that morphed into a nonprofit group, is selling access to the president despite the group's own coy implications and his cooperation with it.
President Obama’s new advocacy group, Organizing for Action, is not just off-putting to Republicans and government watchdogs, who are alarmed that the tax-exempt group is not subject to normal Internal Revenue Service nonprofit regulations.
It did not take long for agenda to muscle in on a historical moment.
