Chamber spies targeted opponents' families

In its efforts to turn America into a banana republic, the U.S.  Chamber of Commerce paid for high-tech spies to investigate its political opponents' families. Read more about their dirty tricks here.

Unions and the ThinkProgress blog were the main targets. According to ThinkProgress, new emails have been discovered that show more of what the private spy company was up to. Reports ThinkProgress,

One of the targets was Mike Gehrke, a former staffer with Change to Win. (Note: Change to Win is the labor federation to which the Teamsters belong.) Among the information circulated about Gehrke was the specific “Jewish church” he attended and a link to pictures of his wife and two children...it was a concerted and deliberate effort to use anything possible to smear the Chamber’s political opponents.

Very, very nice. Stay tuned. There's more to come.
