The Washington Post reports the author of the infamous GOP strategy memo calling Terri Schiavo “a great political issue” is Brian H. Darling, a Mel Martinez (R-FL) aide and “former lobbyist for the Alexander Strategy Group.”
The Post does not mention that Darling worked for the Alexander Strategy Group as recently as last year, nor that the Group was founded by Ed Buckham and Tony Rudy, former aides to House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX).
In fact, the Group is a virtual clearing house for former DeLay aides and associates, including former staffer Karl Gallant, who directed DeLay’s controversial Americans for a Republican Majority (ARM) PAC.
