A coalition of unions has coordinated with FieldWorks, a Washington-based consulting firm, to provide ground support for President Obama and liberal Colorado candidates. The Service Employees International Union (SEIU), AFL-CIO and the Colorado Civic Engagement Roundtable have retained FieldWorks, an organization with many similarities to the now-defunct Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), according to documents uncovered by Media Trackers.
FOX News is now reporting that Ohio officials are reviewing “roughly 200 voter registrations that election officials say were flagged as possibly fraudulent, forged, or duplicated by the group that collected them, FieldWorks, a private Washington, D.C. based firm.”
One of those registrations was for John Adolf Hitler, whose residence was apparently somewhere in Los Angeles. FOX went on to report that another FieldWorks canvasser recently charged with 22 felony counts has plead not guilty on all charges due to insanity.
FieldWorks is registered as a business with the Colorado Secretary of State and was paid nearly $2.5 million by various liberal issue committees between 2008 and 2010. FieldWorks offers services ranging from general consulting services to voter contact operations. Colorado League of Responsible Voters and Protect Colorado’s Future account for the majority of money paid to FieldWorks between 2008 and 2010.
While state campaign finance reports show no expenditures to FieldWorks since the end of the 2010 election cycle, the FEC campaign finance portal details expenditures to FieldWorks from SEIU for canvassing operations in Colorado.
FieldWorks has been listed on 48 different FEC expenditure reports in the month of October as a provider of canvassing operations. While SEIU paid for the operations specific to Colorado, Worker’s Voice, an AFL-CIO PAC, is listed as paying FieldWorks for its services in such states as Virginia.
