A Right-Wing Activist Tried To Infiltrate A Russ Feingold's Campaign. It Didn’t Go Well.

Be on the lookout for Allison Maass, because she apparently does this a lot:

The Feingold sting apparently fell apart thanks to profiling on the part of the campaign. The would-be infiltrator was blonde and drove a big white pickup truck, which staff said was part of the tipoff.

The woman, who identified herself as Allison Moss, told Feingold staffers that she had been active in College Democrats at the University of Minnesota and wanted to get involved in the campaign. She also signed a nondisclosure agreement with the campaign under the same name.

But after a Feingold staffer began pressing Moss on some of her past work, her backstory started unraveling. The staffer said someone on the campaign had gone to the University of Minnesota and remembered Moss as a member of the College Republicans. Moss denied being involved. They also asked her whether she worked for the right-wing group Campus Reform and whether she gave a false name on her nondisclosure agreement.

Moss initially denied charges of infiltration but eventually refused to answer questions altogether.

You can read the rest, as well as the rest of her attempts to infiltrate other campaigns, at the Huffington Post.
