Americans’ for Job Security has been fined three times for disclosure violations twice, specifically for violating the Telephone Consumer Protection act. AJS paid fines of $20,000.00, $3000.00 and $500.00 on three separate occasions for disclosure violations so AJS is also willing (Like Hynes)to violate disclosure laws to get a candidate a win and simply deal with the fallout–if any–later on.
CrossTarget, the polling organization, was created by Stephen DeMaura and Patrick Hynes, both connected political insiders. DeMaura is no fan of Guinta, and Hynes works for Mahoney. So why would AFP choose CrossTarget for a poll given these obvious questions of conflict? I have no idea why, but it was a bad call by Lewandowski and it questions AFP’s neutrality on the race if there even is one.
