Nope, no "coordination" here!

Bob Novak on Kerry's revolving door:
Veteran Democratic political operative Rodney Shelton has crossed over from America Coming Together, an anti-Bush 527 organization set up to evade the McCain-Feingold Act's ban on soft money, to become Arkansas state director of John Kerry's presidential campaign.

The 527s and the Kerry campaign are not supposed to coordinate with each other, but top staffers have moved back and forth through a revolving door. Zack Exley has left the Bush-bashing to become Kerry's director of online organization. Moving in the opposite direction, former Kerry campaign manager Jim Jordan has joined ACT.
I'm sure glad we had campaign finance reform!
