Oregon Congressman Challenges the Shadowy Group Spending Against Him

Yet another outside political group with practically zero paper trail (as of yet) is spending heavily against the Democrat in an obscure and heretofore uncompetitive House race in Oregon — and the affected Congressman, Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.), isn’t taking it lying down.

The group, called Concerned Taxpayers of America, emerged out of the blue last Tuesday with a substantial ad buy attacking Rep. DeFazio and touting his Republican challenger, Art Robinson. Neither DeFazio nor Robinson, for that matter, claimed any knowledge of the group or its backers:

Robinson’s benefactor has spent more on advertising on his behalf than his own campaign has. But there seems to be no record of an organization called Concerned Taxpayers of America, outside a few filings at the Federal Election Commission. The filings list a Capitol Hill address and the name of a treasurer, Republican political consultant Jason Miller.

The group will have to file a quarterly report to the FEC in October, but DeFazio decided on Friday that he wanted to know who was attacking him sooner and decided to march over to the Capitol Hill townhouse listed as the group’s address and ask them himself. With a Washington Post and Huffington Post reporter in tow, DeFazio rang the bell and peered in windows, waiting for a while until, finally, a young man answered:

He said he was a renter who was not acquainted with Concerned Taxpayers of America or its treasurer Jason Miller.

Miller later acknowledged that the young man at the house does indeed work for him. “He’s a junior staffer who didn’t know what to say when he got ambushed by DeFazio,” Miller said. “He shouldn’t have said that.”

There’s also an amusing video documenting the whole affair, and the staffer lying with impunity about his affiliation, here.
