Obama PACs Bus Protesters to GOP Town Halls

Political action committees that fundraised for President Obama during the 2012 presidential election, bused protesters to Republican town hall events nationwide earlier in February.

The Hill reports an unnamed pro-Obama super PAC organized protests at several town halls, going so far as busing protesters outside the member’s districts.

This marks the first time that money raised to elect one president was used to undermine another.

Former staffers of Bill and Hillary Clinton are also pouncing on the opportunity. The Center for American Progress, operated by Clinton Advisor Neera Tanden, reportedly worked with pro-Obama groups to encourage Democrats to oppose Republican lawmakers at several town halls in February.
