Former Sen. Russ Feingold (D-WI) says that his campaign was infiltrated by an apparently Republican activist who attempted to get a job with the campaign.
According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, the woman told the campaign she wanted to work on issues that impact women’s health and unions. However, when she was confronted about previous work for conservative causes and an attempt to infiltrate the Hillary Clinton campaign in Iowa last year, she was mum.
“I’m not going to be answering any questions, so if you want me to leave, I’ll leave. If you want me to stay, I’ll stay,” an audio recording by the Feingold campaign revealed.
The campaign told her she needed to leave.
“Cool! Well, it was great meeting you,” she said.
When the woman signed up to volunteer for the campaign she changed her name to Allison Moss, but she was actually Allison Maass. She was caught last August for trying to get Clinton campaign interns and volunteers to accept cash under the table because her parents had already contributed the maximum donation.
Maass currently appears as a writer on the Campus Reform website, which bills themselves as “a watchdog to the nation’s higher education system” and claims there is liberal bias in higher education.
The campaign for current Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) told the Journal-Sentinel that Maass had no affiliation with their campaign.
