Thanks for the link, Dori. I like the groups that put the web site together.
From sourewatch, here's a link on a large list of front groups
. The problem is it probably doesn't even scratch the surface. There's probably a heck of lot, just for the Chamber of Commerce, alone. The American cosmetics industry has their share, as well as, those who could give a crap about the environment. Hopefully, smart thinking Americans will start to incorporate the term "front group" into their thinking, when questioning who is funding a particular issue's position.
The anti gay marriage front groups are despicable. This article talks about one called The Arlington Group
. In California, there was a group called Project Marriage
that was backed by a religious group.
