The travesty is the way these people present themselves as non-partisan or Democrats to fool people about their objectives.
""The Real Campbell Brown has trouble telling the truth, and now she's been caught in another lie. She's a Republican with close ties to conservative Wall Street leaders, and has zero credibility on education. In my more than 10 years of advocating for equitable education funding, she's been silent. I've never heard her fight to improve public schools or help vulnerable kids," Zakiyah Ansari, advocacy director of the Alliance for Quality Education, told the Observer. The two groups are behind the "Real Campbell Brown" campaign, an aggressive operation aimed at highlighting Ms. Campbell's ties to conservative causes in an otherwise liberal, overwhelmingly Democratic city. Ms. Brown, who the city Board of Elections database shows is registered as a Republican, said through a spokesperson that she is a "lifelong independent" who has registered as a Democrat and a Republican in the past to vote in city primaries, and has given political donations only to Democrats. The spokesperson also said Ms. Brown is now not registered in a party, a fact that could not be immediately and independently confirmed."
