There was an interesting story out of Charlottesville this week about a lobbying outfit that got busted for sending forged letters to Fifth District Rep. Tom Perriello. The Charlottesville Daily-Progress reported that Bonner & Associates, a corporate-friendly lobby shop, sent letters to Perriello opposing cap-and-trade legislation that were signed by leaders of the local NAACP and Creciendo Juntos, a Hispanic non-profit network. Only it turns out these groups oppose no such thing, and the letters were signed by fictitious persons on stationery with the organizations’ letterheads. Since the story broke, other instances of fraudulent letters surfacing at Congressional offices have been reported. Props to Perriello for being the first to ferret out this fraud.

The first, last and perhaps the only thing you need to know about the great American Health Care debate is that most people who weigh in on the subject don’t have any idea what they’re talking about.
