In the last few days, the Economic Freedom Alliance (EFA) has created a website and placed billboards in Indiana pressuring Sen. Evan Bayh (D-IN) to vote against the Employee Free Choice Act. On its website, EFA claims that the Employee Free Choice Act will “cost the U.S. economy 600,000 jobs in 2010,” which is a statistic taken from a discredited study by business sponsored scholar Anne Layne-Farrar. But EFA’s disclosure and expenditure form provides some insight into why it’s willing to employ falsehoods. After all, the EFA has paid $100,000 in consulting fees to Karl Rove and Co. in 2009.


This $20,000 fee was paid every month this year, February through June. The Wonk Room has more.
