  •  Buyblue went down for 2 reasons (5+ / 0-)

    I was cofounder and research director of Buyblue.

    1. We were stalled by the GOP IRS in seeking our 501c4 status.  
    2.  We had an unresolveable conflict between two board members.  

    We put a huge amount of work - we being more than 200 volunteers - into developing the screens and identifying companies whose C-level execs contributed to Ds or Rs.  We established local groups, including Colorado Buyblue.  It is a damned shame we went down. But I still have the info on how we did our screens if anyone wants it.

    This is us governing. Live so that 100 years from now, someone may be proud of us.
