REAL REPUBLICANS FOR REAL CHANGE

DEMOCRATS RANT FALLS ON DEAF EARS

Angela Tippmann went to college to study business and economics.

As it turned out, she’s also received an unexpected – and unwanted – education in political strategy and hypocrisy.

The 24-year-old senior at Indiana-Purdue University isn’t sure how Organizing for America discovered her supposedly nonpartisan campus e-mail or why a group affiliated with the Democratic National Committee would expect a right-leaning student to lobby strangers in support of President Obama’s health care plan. But she does know this:

If this is the future of politics, she wants none of it.

“It’s politics, and nobody’s perfect. But this is shady, and it bothers me,” said Tippmann, who didn’t pay much attention to the organization’s pro-Obama e-mails when they started arriving last year, but eventually became concerned that IPFW may have made her student information available to a political organization in violation of privacy laws.

She’s since become convinced that didn’t happen, but remains concerned about the source of use of other people’s personal information supplied to her for lobbying purposes by Organizing for America.
