All statewide campaigns go about a process of identifying key volunteers in each county to name a “county coordinator”.? Especially early in a campaign, such people are the building block of a field effort before the campaign can organize and fund a paid field staff operation.? They are usually leaders within the local county party who support the candidate, and are listed as “coordinators” for anyone who wants to volunteer locally.

They are almost never paid.? That is, until Lee Fisher starting running for US Senate.

I haven’t been able to find out what Lee paid these “coordinators”, but my understanding is that they were cut a one time check from Lee Fisher’s campaign in exchange for being a “coordinator”.? Not a paycheck, mind you.? These weren’t jobs, in the sense that the campaign now had staff.? Just a check, I guess a kind of “thank you”.

Apparently, once the check was written, that was the last time many of the “coordinators” heard from the Lee Fisher campaign.? We’re talking months.? How do we know this?? Because on at least two occasions, such “coordinators” became so frustrated with never, ever hearing from Lee Fisher’s campaign, that they simply switched sides and are now supporters of Jennifer Brunner’s run for US Senate.

Sure sounds like a campaign ODP should endorse, doesn’t it!? Meanwhile, Amy Groya, who in response to the deluge from Brunner supporters, has claimed to not be on the Executive Committee, nor on Lee’s paid staff, despite announcing precisely that to several commenters, ….Amy Groya has now protected her Twitter feed, from which she was whining yesterday about Brunner’s campaign to prevent an ODP endorsement.

Next episode of Lee Fisher UNBLOGGED!….the robocalls!

    Do you know if these were the people who collected signatures to get Lee on the ballot? I'd always wondered if the signature collectors were paid or not.

    So I just had another fun Facebook exchange with Amy Groya!

    She updated her status to say, and I'm paraphrasing because she deleted me as a friend: Now I totally know why the mainstream media disregards the blogs because they do no factchecking and are completely unreliable!

    I knew this was in response to the article I did about her on Buckeye State Blog, so this was my response:

    “Amy, in December you told myself and many others that you were leaving to accept a paid position in the Fisher campaign. This isn't something that I'm making up, I've confirmed it with several of our mutual acquaintances. You'll also notice that my article didn't say that you were still getting paid to work for Fisher, but said that you left College Democrats of Ohio to work for Fisher. If this isn't true, then you can't blame fact-checking or research, you have to blame yourself for lying to me and so many other people.

    And, in regards to your Executive Committee membership, we had a heated Facebook exchange about the emails, during which your arguments were: 'Jennifer Brunner is ruining my life! These people are crazy! Jennifer has compromised my personal information!' It's only when the blogs broke the story did you start claiming that you were no longer on the Executive Committee. So, in the interest of fact-checking and research, on what date did you offer your formal resignation from the Executive Committee?”

    Her response? She deleted my comment and removed me as a friend. She then posted that I was crazy and should go attempt to ruin somebody else's life.
