Op-Ed Responds to Misleading Ads; Berman Pledges to Expand Buy

In response to misleading ads from the Center for Union Facts, Progressive States co-chair Sen. Steve Doherty (Ret.) and Rep. Dave McAlpin of Montana wrote an op-ed for the Great Falls Tribune entitled "Beware of big-buck Easterners testing their theories on us." They make the case that Rick Berman and his Center are part of a large, anonymous network of big money interests dedicated to imposing political experiments on small, cheap media states where ballot initiatives can be run. Meanwhile, Rick Berman is already looking ahead. He told The Oregonian that this is merely the first wave of ads -- with more to come in other states. In other words, get ready -- if you don't live in one of the states already targeted, you're sure to see the ads soon.
