Of course, the issue with the 'Catholic Answers' voter guide is not that it LOOKS like it was paid for by the Republicans, it is that it WAS paid for by Republicans.

Is there proof for that assertion?

One thing that is for certain is that the Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good voter guide, "Voting for the Common Good", is tied to the Democrat Party. The group's executive director, Alexia Kelly, is a former Catholic Outreach director for the Democrat Party and for John Kerry.

Yes, Karl Keating has worked very hard to try to keep his funder secret, but in the Spring before the 2004 election he was hurting for money. The Bush-Cheney campaign and the Republican National Committee found the cash they needed.

As for Ms. Kelly, it is not possible that she worked for the "Democrat Party" has no such entity is registered as a political party according to the Federal Elections Commission nor is any such group incorporated in the District of Columbia.

Could we have a link to a site providing evidence to support this contention?
