In the comment section of this post, Marc Norman, the spokesperson for Citizens for Open Government, made the following statement in response to my conjecture that the food workers union was funding his continuing legal challenges:
“FOR THE RECORD, we have not accepted ANY funding from organizations with a financial interest in the Turf Valley referendum.”
I found this statement intriguing. I happen to think that the union most certainly does have a financial interest in keeping a non union store out of HoCo. I then suggested he was attempting to obscure or “turn a phrase” instead of acknowledging whether the union was his benefactor, so I asked point blank if he was being supported by the food workers union or their PAC.
His response was somewhat less than forthcoming.
“As our publicly available election filings will support, there isn't any "turning of a phrase".”
I am told that such a form does exist and I am attempting to get a copy of it. Still, it would have been nice if he had just answered the question.
