Voting Group that Targets Welfare Recipients Tied to Warren Campaign
5:31 PM, Aug 8, 2012 • By MICHAEL WARREN
The Boston Herald today reported that the daughter of Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren chairs a non-profit group called Demos, which pushes state governments to spend taxpayer money to register welfare recipients to vote. The president of Demos, Miles S. Rapoport, has donated to Warren's campaign against incumbent Republican senator Scott Brown.
Here's more on Demos and Warren's daughter, from the Herald:
Rapoport has denied any connections between Warren's campaign and the group's efforts to register welfare recipients and maintains that Demos is strictly non-partisan. "Amelia Warren Tyagi has been a superb Demos Board Member or Board Chair since 2006," Rapoport said in a statement. "She has served in these unpaid position with tremendous integrity and thoughtfulness, and she would not, and did not, encourage any work in order to benefit her mother's campaign. Demos was doing NVRA work well before Amelia came on our board, and we are going to continue it long after this year's election is over."
