Ex-Romney Aide Starts For-Profit Oppo Research Effort

Boston Globe: "In a sterile office building a few miles from the White House, Mitt Romney's old campaign manager has a new mission: foiling Democratic candidates across the country."

"Republicans say that Matt Rhoades's fledgling political group, America Rising, is attempting to build the party's most sophisticated, modern, and centralized opposition research effort ever. It is key to the GOP's hopes of resurrecting itself after the soul-crushing presidential defeat of 2012."

"But what's most notable about American Rising is this: It is the first high-profile political combat organization to rely heavily on a for-profit company, rather than operating as a nonprofit group, exploiting increasingly lax campaign finance laws to maximum advantage."
