MSNBC Contributor, Michelle Bernard has always been rabidly anti-union, but apparently the Independent Women’s Forum that she runs is a right wing “astroturf” group who opposes health care reform:
Originally formed in 1991 as “Women for Clarence Thomas” in an effort to secure the nominee a seat on the Supreme Court. Just what the Independent Women’s Forum is independent from is unclear — it certainly cannot claim independence from the White House with Vice-Presidential wife Lynne Cheney as Director Emeritus and ultra-conservative pundit and Bush advisor Larry Kudlow as a board member. IWF has even been awarded a grant as part of the US Department of State’s $10 million Iraqi Women’s Democracy Initiative to help a group of Iraqi women leaders define their role in Iraq’s government.
Funny, right wingers know how to get money from the big government they “hate”.
