A legal assistant for the Center for American Progress Action Fund emails to clarify that blogger Matthew Yglesias, mentioned in this blog post last week, does not work for the Center for American Progress:

Dear Mr. McCormack,

Thank you for your mention of Matthew Yglesias in your October 28th article titled "Wisconsin Congressman Ron Kind’s Dirty Money."

We appreciate and value your press coverage but would like to clarify that the content referenced is from Yglesias, a blog of the Center for American Progress Action Fund, the Center for American Progress' 501(c)(4) affiliated organization. While the Center and the Action Fund share a mission, the Center is a research and educational institute, while the Action Fund transforms progressive ideas into policy through rapid response communications, partnership with other organizations, legislative action, and grassroots and political advocacy. We hope you will keep the distinction between these two organizations in mind in the future.

Again, thank you for your coverage. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our VP for Communications, Anna Soellner, at [...]@americanprogressaction.org.
